eDealdujour: The Groupon Of Online Dating
A new online dating site takes inspiration from "The Bachelor" and the growing "buy today, use tomorrow" web mentality.
With buy-in deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial making waves in the industry, it was only a matter of time before the concept was translated into a dating site. Enter eDealdujour, a French venture co-founded by Lawrence and Krystal Leurquin Ouaki in early February 2011, which highlights a different single man each day, giving interested women a limited time to respond. The idea is a riff on the movie “The Bachelor,” with Chris O’Donnell, where a young New York billionaire decides to buy the front page of the newspaper in order to create a singles ad to help him find his future wife.
