Graduate student dating website
"Most of our members are busy young professionals," the creators of the app write on their website.
"We know that one thing everyone looks forward to daily is coffee breaks."Connect with Facebook, and every day at noon, the app will send you a prospective match, prompting the user to like or pass.
There are countless reasons why it’s hard for college students to meet new people.
For example, the creators of Date My first got their idea for the site after their female friends complained that they were spending most of their time with other students enrolled in the school of social work, most of whom were women.
Believe it or not, over 35% of our member base has a master’s degree or higher.
Compare that to the national average of people with master’s degrees or higher at 12%, you guys are a bunch of smarty pants!
On the flip side, men in the Business School often wished for more women study buddies.
Another explanation for the app's popularity might be due to the fact that it's free; college students are already bogged down with student loan debt, so much so, that the crushing weight of monthly loan payments come before finding love (or something like it).
On the other hand, the guys in the business school were surrounded my mostly other men in their classes.
Online dating helped them meet students of the opposite sex at their school.
Students today are busier than ever, especially with more of them having to work to help pay for tuition.
Between classes, work, student groups and hanging out with friends, it’s hard to find time for dating.
