Online speed dating with WooMe

A company in the US has launched an online speed dating service, for people who actually don’t have enough time for normal speed dating or for leaving the house. WooMe lets you join a five-minute session in which you “meet” five people – using voice or video chat – and then decide whether any of them takes your fancy.

The site says the webcam is “optional” but isn’t that a bit optimistic? Would you really agree to hook up with a disembodied voice based on a minute’s chat? Let’s face it – however much the founders claim it’s a way to “meet people with the same interests”, it’s all about who’s hot and who’s not…

We’re so shallow, we know…
