Jess Meet Ken provides a new take on online dating, which gives female users the chance to recommend men they may have dated previously for other women on the site. Instead of taking a shot with a man based purely on his profile, you can make sure you have all the right information from other women on the site first.
The site isn’t completely one-sided either, the person who first recommended their male friend has to make sure that the interested female is a good fit as well. That said, women are the ones in control, and by having a gatekeeper in place, the chances of having an less than enjoyable experience with online dating are severely reduced.
Jess and Ken Deckinger, the site’s founders, came up with the idea because it’s exactly how they met on a dating site years ago that no longer exists. After hearing enough of their friends say that they would love to use a site that was based on female recommendations, the couple decided to start one of their own.
If you’ve had any bad experiences with online dating, it might be time to try something new.
