HonestDatingSites.org - Mark Davis and Peter launch new site

Postby Winston » Mon Jan 06, 2014 12:16 am

Hi all,
Mark Davis, Founder of DreamConnections.com, wanted me to pass this on to you. He and my friend and sponsor, Peter of ChristianFilipina.com, have both launched a new alliance site:

http://www.honestdatingsites.org

Mark said that he would like to hear from any of you who know of any honest dating sites that you can suggest to him to list on there. If so, email him at Mark@HonestDatingSites.org

He also wants to know your thoughts on their 5 Codes of Conduct for an honest dating site, and if there are any more codes you would like to add.

http://www.honestdatingsites.org/code-of-conduct/

Mark will be at the iDate conference in Las Vegas this month, if any of you want to meet him, and will present this new site there. I will try to meet up with him and Peter after their conference.

Hey, thanks, Winston!

I can't wait to hear some of the guys thoughts - I would suppose that most will say that the number of honest sites are few or none. But I hope we get a few suggestions.

I'd also like to hear what the guys would say should be rules for a site to be viewed as honest.

Thanks for starting the dialog here!

Are these the 5 codes of conduct Mark?

http://www.honestdatingsites.org/code-of-conduct/

If so, I would elaborate on each one a little more. I assume the site is still under construction?

Will this site be like what Jim had with AgencyScams.com? Or will it be different?

It's a work-in-progress. I hope to have it looking good for by the iDate conference next week.

Yes, that's our code of conduct, but I'd like to hear more ideas and start the broader conversation as to what different people think an honest dating site should do.

Good luck to Mark Davis and Peter Christopher, I'm sure their sites are some of the most trustworthy around. Yet, I can't help thinking...shouldn't statements like

HonestDatingSites.org was formed to be a watchdog to the industry and point out bad practices so sincere men can avoid them.


be made by an organisation formed by impartial individuals, not dating website owners who are clearly in a conflict of interest position? It's like McDonald's, KFC and Burger King founding a watchdog organisation to ensure that all fast food chains promote "healthy eating", while emphasizing that they are the shining gems of the industry.

Again, all good with your respective business endeavours, but I find it hard to see your "International Alliance for Honest Dating Sites" as more than an attempt to an umbrella brand that can stand out in a massively overcrowded market.

That's a valid point. It is sort of a conflict of interest for them to put such a site up. However, keep in mind two things.

- First, you can't compare their sites to McDonald's. Come on now. lol. McDonald's is trashy fast food with unhealthy chemicals. Mark and Peter try to screen out their members for quality. Mark even calls his clients to make sure they are marriage material and not playboys. He does not just let anyone who pays go on his tour. He also provides quality women who are sincere and have gone through a screening process as well.

- Second, yes they are going to recommend their own sites of course, but they will list others as well that have good reputations. That's why Mark is asking for you guys' recommendations on which other sites to include. So they are promoting third party sites that they don't own as well, not just their own.
