Remember what I said last June 2012, 2 years ago.
Group Dating like Grouper? Forget it for serious dating
I remember other proposals during 2005 to 2012 like: Compa.UK. Doubledate.com, MixandMeet, 8at8, TableforSix, SmartDate, HowAboutWe, Zoosk, Zin.gl, Engage (then rebranded to Ignighter group dating, then rebranded to StepOut), Thread, Triangulate, Gelato (then rebranded to Twnty), WooMe, 12Like, LittleHint.
The conclusion was always the same: Persons do not like / do not want group dating.

Social dating is vaporware.
Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient.
It needs to reduce the false positives problem and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance. The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences)
If you want to be first in the "personalization arena" == Personality Based Recommender Systems, you should understand HOW TO INNOVATE in the ............ Online Dating Industry first of all!
