Who is eCupid? Find out about us here.
I have been professionally involved in computers since early 2000. Prior to this, I have always had an interest in computers and purchased my first computer around 1979 and began learning programming. I started a computer business in 2003, an Internet café with computer repairs, called Avon River Computer Service which is still running today. A number of years ago, a client asked if I could build and host a website for them. I agreed that I could do it, after all, how hard could it be. I began learning all about websites and hosting, CSS, SEO, etc. etc. etc. and still learning, but boy, I know a lot more now than I did then and have built and host numerous websites for clients all over the world.
How does this tie in with eCupid?
Around 10 years ago, I wanted to build a website that could have the potential of allowing members to meet other like minded people. I had the view that the members could become friends first of all, and then later, as they get to know one another, they could become more than friends, perhaps they could even find their soulmate, get married and start families. That would be be fantastic.
I knew that I needed to create a site where a small seed, like a meeting place, could grow and blossom into friendships and ultimately even love and marriage. The site would allow perfect strangers in the beginning, to find their soulmates, who would want to spend the rest of their lives together.
Don’t do it!
Everyone I spoke to about this project, gave me all kinds of reasons why I shouldn’t do this, and some of them made sense to me at the time, so I shelved the idea for the time being, but I always thought that I should do it, because I really believed it would be a good thing and could really be a benefit to a lot of people.
Let the soulmate search begin.
In 2020, I decided to ignore all of the negative people, and began building the eCupid website. The brief that I gave myself was simple. Build the site and make it as easy as possible for visitor’s and members alike to navigate the site and be able to meet and converse with people that interests them. I believe that we have done this with eCupid and look forward to providing this service for many years to come. I believe that our interface is easy to navigate, and that we have search forms in place where members can refine their search using gender, age range town and country of origin. This is a good starting point for most people to reduce the total number of hits significantly. To make it easier for the searchers, I have included the members age, the gender each member is looking for, the town they live and also their country. This should make it easier to make choices based on the searchers preferences.
