In the next few days i would start reviewing the few nigerian mobile dating services, am sure i would be deemed biased for even attempting to start it since i run a service of my own,am going to do it anyways and i'll try to be as objective as possible.your comments would also be appreciated.
When we had decided to start our own service,we had to look around to see if anyone was already into it,we really searched and the first service we got was that run by city people magazine.It was been run by aunty kemi or so.the premise was really simple,if you needed someone,you sent your details and that of the ideal guy or babe to a mobile phone number,there was also a landline number you call.
e.g i am chichi,25 years a student of unilag,dark,busty,tall and i would like a man that is tall,dark and handsome,God fearing and with a sense of humour.he can call me on 0803xxxxxxxx.
the "advert" would be featured in the next edition of the softsell.then the calls would start coming in from potentials.
(we got most of the irst few numbers in our database here apologies to mr kehinde)
advantages>you had easy access of getting a date.It was widely used been the first of its kind
disadvantages>most of the individuals who used the service wanted sugar daddys or mummys purely for monetary reasons
you also had to wait till the tuesdays before you could access the profiles of users
profiles were added at the whim of the editor.
