CFdating Web Dev Update

CFdating Web Dev Update

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!

Welcome to CFdating.com!

Welcome to CFdating.com!

The childfree segment of society – those who may love kids and children, but prefer not to have any themselves – has long deserved their own clean, functional, and modern online dating site.  A few have come before, but none have been serious in helping those who choose the childfree lifestyle to find love.  Well with the official launch of CFdating.com, we are proud and excited to become the premier childfree dating site in the world, and between human verifiable profiles and more functionality than you’ll find at every other childfree dating site on the Internet, we think this will be the last site you ever visit.

If you haven’t stopped by our front page, let’s take a quick tour on some of the features and benefits to creating a profile at CFdating.  First of all, we mentioned human verifiable profiles above, so let’s start there.  While anyone is able to create a profile at CFdating.com, you will not be able to send messages, add another childfree user to your favorites unless your profile gets approved by the CFdating.com staff.  Best of all, until your profile is approved you won’t even show up in other childfree user’s matches!  So why do we do this?  The answer is simple: raise your hand if you hate browsing online dating sites where half the matches are photo-less, answerless profiles – yep, our’s is in the air as well.  It’s time to change that, and build a childfree dating community that is serious about finding each and every one of you love; weeding out the not-serious is a stellar step one, and one that we are really excited about.

What about advertisements or cost?  Right now, and this will probably surprise you, CFdating.com has absolutely zero advertisements and is 100% free to use.  With private investments, and an actual staff behind the scenes that is building functionality, approving profiles, and growing the community with advertising, we truly are serious about becoming the #1 childfree dating site on earth, and if you’re not convinced after what we’ve told you thus far, it’s only going to get better.

We have tons more functionality, content, guides, and posts in the works here at CFdating, and we’re thrilled to have you on board.  If you haven’t already, click here to create a profile, and enjoy CFdating.com!
