Lets be honest - they agreed to pay the bills, take over the business and hire 5 people...not exactly an "acquisition"

Every time the IAC acquires a big online dating site, it is like if they were paying a bribery to the VC investor who had previously invested in that big online dating site.

Do you remember when the IAC acquired SinglesNet 4 years ago?


HAW is a unique idea, but too niche to have mainstream appeal and perhaps too much effort for seniors and anyone above 40, who prefer the simplicity and mass appeal of sites like match. Tinder is crushing everyone for the under 30 singles, so it leaves less singles signing up for HAW. I thought Nerve was an interesting site, I wonder if they will re-open it or spin it off.
