Since our covert launch a year or so ago, CFdating has gone from the new kid on the childfree dating block to a community that is really starting to pick up steam, and as the founder that is really exciting! My wife and I started CFdating.com with the sole mission of creating an authentic community for those of us who choose to be child free, because as we all know we’ve seen too many of these CF dating sites pop up only to disappear a few months in. Well, I’m proud to report that not only is our community growing rapidly, it’s also not going away – ever. Now THAT is exciting! So with that being said, let’s talk web development to highlight some of the site improvements we have here in the works.
Improved Matches & Search
While our user base here at CFdating is growing extremely well, in hindsight I should have structured the site’s core matching system to do a bit better job displaying national matches while the community falls into place. We have some wonderful members out there in our community, and hearing from many of them they’ve mentioned that a great feature would be to include a more nationalized matching system – with of course retaining the ability to go hyper-local in their searches. Duly noted! Expect to see the new and improved matches system very soon, and thank you again to our awesome users who helped shape this change!
More New User Approval Checks
We take your security, privacy, and time very seriously here at CFdating, and the user approval system we’ve put in place back at launch has really done a great job in preventing a ton of lackluster, and potentially sketchy profiles from cluttering up your matches. While I’m obviously not going to disclose the specifics of what we have in place, and what’s to come, just know that the profiles and matches you see and meet here at CFdating have gone through a very intensive approval process – one that I’m pretty proud of, and one that is continuing to evolve!
Improved Profiles Coming
As we continue on with the beta, we’ve received some great feedback as well as some frustrations on our profiles, user images, and the need for some new profile questions / fields. First off, I’m working on getting a cool new feature included that allows users to rotate and manipulate profile pics that they upload; sometimes, when uploading a photo from a mobile device, the image uploaded is imported sideways. This new feature should solve that, and it will also provide some other neat functionality as well to really improve profile pictures all around. As I mentioned above, we’re also doing some bug fixing with profiles, and we’re also exploring getting more questions and answer fields plugged into the site to provide a bit more depth to the profile. Look for these changes very soon!
Still 100% Free, and Still 100% Ad-Free
CFdating.com is still 100% free to create a profile, search for and message matches, and on top of that you will not see a single advertisement along the way. How many other dating sites can say that? We want to build a community for child free singles, and the best way to do that is to provide them with the best experience imaginable. That’s our plan, and we’re sticking to it!
We will have lots more improvements along the way, and we’ll drop a new note here on the CFdating Blog when we have news to report. I hope everyone’s Spring is off to a great start – enjoy CFdating.com, and we will talk to you soon!
