Alikewise.com is a novel approach (pun intended) to online dating. The site’s premise is to match singles based on their interest in books…and it’s totally free! Singles are free to post pictures and informative snippets about the kinds of books they like to read and their favorite authors. From Harry Potter lovers to 50 Shades of Gray, you’ll find someone who likes it here.
Currently Alikewise.com offers all its services 100%, totally free to members. They do make it clear they may start charging for certain services as they expand which they’re doing rapidly – they’re now in the US, Canada, the UK, Israel and Australia. While the features offered on the site are relatively minimal (chat rooms, book discussion groups, instant messenger) Alikewise is cleanly designed and connects users through both Facebook and Twitter.
Since the premise of the site requires users to share information about their favorite books the overall quality of members is relatively high, at least at first glance. Everyone has an opinion, there are few fake profiles and at the very least, all the Alikewise singles are literate! Although Alikewise.com users seem to skew a bit older (30-50s) it’s a very high-quality dating site when you consider it’s totally free.
If you’re a bookworm or simply have an affinity for all things Ann Rand, www.Alikewise.com may be a good jumping-off point for your online dating search.
