SAN DIEGO, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Love at first sight is not just a romantic notion, but one that many people have experienced, believed in and acted on. iDreamofU (IDOU) is a new online social dating site that allows members to visually create a near-lifelike image of the person they would like to meet. The IDOU software then matches the image, along with responses to the traditional demographic and relationship questions, to members on the site.

IDOU is a new entrant into the online dating market — a market that is estimated to be in excess of $1 billion. The core differentiating factor between IDOU and all other dating sites is that an IDOU site member builds a visual version of the person he or she would like to meet by selecting an ethnicity, a preferred facial structure along with eye, nose, mouth and hair shapes. Since visual attributes are only part of a member’s created profile, responses to the more standard demographic and relationship questions also play a significant role in the matching algorithm.
There is also a non-dating component to the site. Anyone visiting the site can create a person’s image. For example, many readers have their own vision of EL James ‘ Fifty Shades’ character Christian Grey prior to Hollywood casting him. Why not create him? The IDOU software allows users to build their version of Christian Grey or anyone else they choose to create. This image can then be shared through social media: Facebook , Twitter and Pinterest .
Karen Howard, President of KLEA, Inc., the owner of the IDOU brand, talks about the brand. “IDOU is fun and entertaining in that you can create a person just for the experience or in the hopes of meeting the person you’ve built. That you can share the person you created with friends through social media is an added bonus.”
Joe Schwinger, President of eXcelaweb, www.excelaweb.com , the company developing IDOU’s custom software comments, “The software associated with IDOU’s creation leverages a unique algorithm which allows users to custom select and compile every asset of the person they want to create. The compiled assets, the image of a person, are shared via social networks to crowdsource that perfect match.”
Launched several months ago, IDOU provides an innovative, game-like, and first-in-class approach to online social dating for 18-to-50-year-olds in the United States. All services on IDOU are currently free. IDOU will focus on the use of its website and planned applications to create an online and social dating market niche.
