STAR TELEGRAM -- June 13 -- According to a 2007 study by M:Metrics, 4m mobile users connected, in one month alone, to their preferred dating service. Setting up a mobile-dating account is fairly straightforward and is facilitated by such major carriers as AT&T Wireless, Nextel and Sprint. "The exciting thing about mobile dating today is that from that little screen of your everyday cellphone, you can finally do just about anything in today's dating world," says Mark Brooks, editor of onlinepersonalswatch.com. "It certainly makes for a far quicker, even nicer experience than just plain old texting." Fast Flirting offers, for an estimated $3 per month, the chance to mobile-meet in an online "lobby" where users can fire off as many text messages as possible in 10 minutes. Perhaps the most ambitious "location-based" mobile-dating site is Meet Moi, which has been in operation since March.
