collaboradate WIRED NEWS -- Mar 17 -- Collaboradate does for online dating what Trillian does for instant messaging: It combines multiple services so you can manage everything from one place. When you create your Collaboradate profile, you enter the user names you registered at other dating and social networking sites. Then when someone searches Collaboradate and finds you, she can click through each site on your list to view your dating profiles. If the external dating site requires membership to view profiles, she'll have to sign in. But if it doesn't -- like Yahoo Personals, Friendster and MySpace -- she can see your page immediately. Andy believes the subscription model for dating is doomed, and suggests that Collaboradate will be a positive force for online dating as a whole.

Mark Brooks: Paid subscriptions help sort out the more committed online daters. When you're paying $20-$50 a month, your attention is pretty much ensured. I'd like to see more sites where ONLY paid members are visible and can play.
