Responding to market research and industry needs, Lovetropolis.com, a Bowie, Maryland-based online dating service owned by The Lombard Company, Inc., introduced a new Christian Dating service today as part of their push to attain a larger market share of the lucrative online dating niche market. They are hoping to match the success of their general dating service which was launched in February, 2009, and has already become a major player in the online dating business.
“Christians generally look for other Christians when entering the dating pool. A shared belief system is essential for a happy, long term relationship; and the closer we can match couples up, the more successful their dating experience will be,” said a spokesperson for Lovetropolis.com. “Our ethnic and religion-specific dating services are simply another way we can make sure that our customers meet the person they will be truly happy with.”
Specific niches in the online dating industry have become necessary with the explosion of multiple sites going up in recent years. The success of companies like Match.com and EHarmony has paved the way for others who want a piece of this lucrative pool. Lovetropolis.com though is claiming to have distinct advantages over the others that set them apart.
“Our service utilizes more of the social networking tools that are available today,” our spokesperson tells us. “We have video profiles, live chat features, YouTube uploads, Favorites menus, and applications to spice up a profile. The technology to do all of this is out there for the taking now, and we use all of it to improve user experience. Anyone can claim to be a Christian just to date someone whose photo they like; but when you have multiple conversations via webcam dating and spend some time getting to know someone on an intimate level before meeting, the truth comes out.”
In addition to Christian dating, Lovetropolis.com is also now offering Latin Dating, Asian Dating, Black Dating and Jewish Dating. “Be prepared,” our spokesperson tells us. “There’s a lot more where that came from. Our designers and marketing people are working day and night to crank out more sites very soon. We’ll keep you posted.”
