MASHABLE - Apr 28 - Instead of offering email subscribers a daily deal per city, InboxCupid serves up a featured dater per city. Would-be online daters subscribe to InboxCupid in their city and specify who they’re interested in dating. Users then wait for InboxCupid to fill their inboxes with daily featured dates. If users like what they see, they hit the “Inbox Me” button to message the featured date and see if there’s a match. To make the connection, InboxCupid charges the interested dater $1. Those who want to be the featured daily date are required to create a profile and answer five questions.
