In the world, many businesses have been set up that pretend to help singles to find love. However, their services are far below the efficiency that could be done at the price they request. In fact, it would be possible to develop much more efficient collective methods at no cost or nearly.
To be fair, singles should not be treated as they are now as a sort of private property exploited by any businesses that sell the connection to other singles. Singles should be free and the collective solutions should work for free, self-managed by singles.
Two kinds of solutions can be considered:
- Online dating systems, but these should be free, open, not the property of anybody. Ideally, there should be only one global network of dating ads with the most efficient methods implemented.
- Real-world collective appointments. The point is to publicly advertise an initiative of time and place so that many singles can gather there. The place should be public, a park, a beach or anywhere, with no entry ticket. Or, of course, some big halls or the like if the weather is bad.
