Quoted company Meetic, based in Boulogne, France, has, since its launch in 2001, established itself as Europe’s leading online dating service with a well recognised brand and more than 25.4 million registered members.
Meetic offers its service in 12 different languages across 14 European countries together with China and Brazil.
We are confident that Dating will continue to go from strength to strength under the ownership of Meetic, who are able to provide the experience and resources required to consolidate Dating Direct’s position as market leader”.
“Dating Direct has achieved its position as the UK market leader by having an easy to use website that is carefully policed and cleverly promoted through a focused advertising and PR strategy.
Their mission statement is to serve its members needs with the best possible online dating service and with the highest quality of support.
DD have tried to sort the problem out but it still exists and they have ignored two phone calls from me to help further.The acquisition will provide Meetic with a very strong foothold in the UK market and provide its existing operation with a greater critical mass”.Dating was created to provide a fun and secure dating environment where quality single adults who share common goals can make friends, date, form relationships and find life partners.Chemistry, its sister company organises live singles events such as speed dating.In addition, Dating Direct provides a third party dating service to almost 20 other organisations, including broadcaster Channel Four, internet service provider AOL, radio station Heart FM and multi-media service provider ntl.All in all I am not at all impressed with Dating Direct, please note, the facilities need a serious overhaul!!
