Vancouver, Canada, June 02, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- You know that big city, the one with enough pride, diversity and multiculturalism to make New York go green with envy?
Vancouver may not have the most online daters in North America, but it is one of the greatest cities in the world to live in. Vancouverites take pride in this lush landscape coupled with an unparalleled social scene. All of this beauty and passion for west coast life inspired Ice Boy Media President Ryan Byrne to go against the grain to create a new online dating community at VanDating.com.
While long distance relationships still flourish in the online world, they require careful consideration. Is it not more ideal to live in close proximity to each other before taking the next step? Why not start closer to home? Get closer to the heart. While some prefer the excitement of travelling across the country to find their future soul mate, Ryan Byrne feels like there’s still something amiss.
"I got frustrated with all these dating sites claiming to help me find a local match by targeting my internet address. It simply wasn’t accurate. I live in Vancouver, not Burnaby! There needed to be something more honest and reliable,” says Byrne, a bright young entrepreneur who found his roots in online marketing and e-business five years ago. “Although there are a few good speed dating sites that keep this in mind, it looks for the most part as though globalization and corporate takeover ideals dominate the traditional online dating marketplace,” explains Byrne. “Grass roots foundations feel much friendlier than magic pill approaches to doctoring your love life.”
Furthermore, a startling new trend has emerged with sites that cater to international communities. Shrouded in anonymity, online scammers from overseas have been targeting unsuspecting Canadians. Byrne believes that by allowing only residents of the Greater Vancouver Regional District to register with VanDating.com, the natural screening process will keep out the undesirables.
“All online dating pitfalls aside, Vancouverites need to connect with newfound joy. The camaraderie is infectious. This was very clear during the Olympic games,” says Byrne. “Living here makes it even more of a reality.”
