HUFFINGTON POST - May 5 - Clique, a new dating site, eliminates the uncertainty of the purely anonymous by matching singles to friends, and friends of friends. Christy Purington, founder of Clique, said of her reasons for starting the site. "The best dates I was going on was through friends of mine. There had to be a way to access this network of people my friends had that you're not regularly exposed to unless you're at a party with them or they set you up." Though Clique started out as an invitation-only site, it's now open to all comers. But the major feature that distinguishes the site from other dating sites is one simple policy: you can only interact with people who are at least two degrees of separation from you.
Mark Brooks: Engage.com tried this in the past, but I like this new guise and branding of the 'friends matchmaking' concept.
