Reel.Date Takes the Surprise Out of Internet Dating!

San Diego-based company introduces dating site with a distinctive
profile feature that helps hopeful daters avert unwanted surprises

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Good news for the millions of people looking for love online! Reel.Date,
a San Diego-based online dating portal, introduces a new element to
online dating that eliminates unwanted surprises from first meetings:
video introductions. Videos, a required feature for Reel Date online
dating profiles, closes the gap that other dating sites fail to address.

“Anyone who has used these dating services has gotten caught in a ‘bait
and switch’ move by daters who misrepresent their appearance and overall
appeal. You wind up sitting across from someone that you never would’ve
agreed to meet had they been truthful. It’s a total waste of time,” says
Nick Esayian, Reel.Date CEO and a divorced father of two who has his own
fair share of dating horror stories.

Twelve percent of adults in the U.S. have participated in Internet
dating with men having more accounts than women. Even the top ranked
site with 35 million unique visitors fails to close the gap on what
Esayian says is a common practice. “Videos don’t lie and you can’t fake
size, overall appearance and personality. We require members to record
some answers to fun questions they select so that when other members are
browsing they have a much better feel for who they will potentially
meet. If a picture is worth 1000 words than a video is worth 1000

Along with the traditional elements of an online dating profile,
Reel.Date requires an introductory video to accompany photos. Algorithms
deliver profile matches like other sites but, according to Esayian, no
video, no matches. “Our goal is to close the gaps that other sites miss
and deliver an overall better quality experience. Our users know EXACTLY
who they are going to meet, are they confident, well spoken, funny, and
what they really look like.”

During Reel.Date’s limited launch celebration, users get a FREE lifetime
profile. After the promotion, subscription fees are $9.95 per month or
$49.95 per year.

Reel.Date is the brainchild of San Diego serial entrepreneurs Nick
Esayian, a direct response marketing executive and veteran driver on the Pirelli
World Challenge
racing series and Alan Ezeir, technology executive
