What is BadOnlineDates.com?
Bad date? You're not alone!
BadOnlineDates.com is a social networking community connecting singles through their bad date experiences. Members post profiles and share their bad date stories. BOD is a site for anyone who has ever suffered through the demoralizing, albeit hysterical process of online dating and come out the other side with a story to tell. Badonlinedates.com is a cathartic site for laughter and connection. And as the story goes - laughter is healing.
How does it work?
Bad Online Dates is free to join, log in at www.BadOnlineDates.com. Then, post a personal profile with basic stats and a photo. It's then that you can start to share your bad date stories on the site, also via Twitter using these hash tags: #badonlinedates, #badonlinedate, #disasterdate, #baddate, #baddates,#disasterdates, #dreadfuldate, dreadfuldates as well with the free iPhone app that's available in iTunes which allows members to report their dreadful dates in real time and straight from the dating trenches.
These stories are what will help connect you to other members.
Members can comment on the posts, communicate directly with others, or simply vent about the crappy date they had last night. The point of the site is to empower singles who have become somewhat frustrated and down-trodden by the dating scene and are ready to find a new outlet to share, laugh, vent and bond.
Who is Jennifer Kelton?
CEO, creator and founder, Jennifer Kelton, is not only an expert at the dating game, she's an accomplished entrepreneur. She's been a fashion designer of eco-friendly clothing (before it was "cool"), owned and operated a top L.A. night club that helped launch the careers of many a budding musician and she's the author of Don't Use My Sweater Like a Towel (www.DontUseMySweaterLikeaTowel.com). She's traveled the world, is a certified hypnotist and has been inspired by the game of love for over 30 years. She's no stranger to taking on a challenge, whether it's starting her own company or surviving the world of online dating.
In October of 2007, Jennifer launched BadOnlineDates.com, hoping to create a revolutionary new site that rises above the cliché's of online dating by combining social networking and online dating site designed to connect people through their bad date experiences; allowing them to release their frustration by telling their stories, laughing about the awful truth and letting go of bad online dating mojo. She wants to see online dating evolve into something more human, honest and organic and help heal the wounds of anyone who has been rejected by a computer or gone to dinner with their worst nightmare. There's not better path healing than a road paved with hysterical laughter. In addition to BadOnlineDates.com, Jennifer is also the creator and director of Bad Date TV. The show features archetypal bad date characters. The scenes are improvised and finish with a nice moral to the story which aspires to improve the dating manners of the masses.
When she's not helping the world lick their dating wounds and find a way back to love, Jennifer is an avid snowboarder and a confident single woman who wouldn't mind finding Mr. Right but knows that she won't find him just by reading a profile.
