THE SCOTSMAN - Sep 23 - Bill Dobbie is CEO of Cupid.com, a dating site with ~12M users and 460K paying subscribers, up from 324K in Dec '10. Dobbie has never used a dating site himself. "These things just didn't exist," he laughs – thinking back to the time when he met his wife, Leonie. The company changed its name from easyDate last year, following a tense legal wrangle with easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou. Cupid's network of sites caters for all tastes – from datingforparents.com to maturedating.com and girlsdatefree.com. benaughty.com caters mainly for a more…transient…customer.
