Recently, however, TripAdvisor has gotten some flak from the advertising watchdog of Britain. The agency has publicly reproved the travel web site due to its claim that all of its user-generated reviews are genuine; that is, all of them are written by real travelers.
In this day and age, many consider the subject of virginity to be outdated or preposterous. It is thus refreshing to hear about the new web site called YouAndMeArePure, which is dedicated to those who have managed to abstain from sex before marriage (whether by choice or due to circumstances, I have no idea). All sorts of dating web sites can be found online these days, why not one for virgins? (Check out the one for Apple geeks.) I know many of you are probably chuckling or shaking your heads in disbelief, but hey, each to his own!
So who came up with this idea? Husband and wife team Jose and Lety Colin decided to create the dating web site as they themselves met and got married when they were still, well, virgins. They believe that this plays an important role in their bonding as a couple, and they also believe that there are other people out there who hold the same belief.
If you think about it, they might not have such a big audience. Based on the press release of the web site, “current statistics show that about 30 percent of Americans say they have had one or no sex partners since turning 18.” Whether or not that is true, that’s not such a large figure.
Oh, the couple is not stopping at targeting the V-market (yeah, I made that up). They have a sister web site dubbed YouAndIAbstain.com, for people who are – well, you know what it’s about.
If this is your kind of thing, then check the web sites out. You never know what you will find. Then again, we know just how people can say/write anything online. Take the same precautions as you would on any other dating web site! 😉
