GQ - July 16 - The popular TV show, 90 Day Fiancé, explores the lives of partners, always an American and a foreigner, who hope to marry and stay in the U.S. with the help of a K-1 visa - which, if approved, allows the noncitizen to live here for 90 days, at which point they must wed or catch the next flight home. While the series' couples meet in a nightclub in Mexico or at a Jamaican resort - the most intriguing affairs stem from long-distance digital hookups. Some dating sites bring happy stories. Viewers didn't have a lot of hope for Paul Staehle and Karine Martins on 90 Day Fiancé. The two originally met via MiCrush, a self-described free "Latino Dating App," which is inactive as of this writing. They are still together and just had their first son. ColombianCupid costs $35 a month for a subscription allowing users to message people back and forth. It's part of the Cupid Media network operating 35 "niche dating sites" including AsianDating, ChinaLoveCupid, BBWCupid, BlackCupid, and InterracialCupid. The company claims to have "helped ~30M people look for love."
