OneGoodLove.com Names President Barack Obama 2013 Honorary Gay Valentine

 Dating Site for Relationship and Marriage-Minded LGBT Singles Honors Obama’s Marriage-Equality Efforts

Los Angeles, CA – February 7, 2013—Happy Valentine’s Day, Mr. President.  LGBT online dating site, OneGoodLove.com (www.onegoodlove.com), today named President Barack Obama its 2013 Honorary Gay Valentine. The relationship-focused, LGBT dating site selected President Obama for his ongoing efforts to speak out about full equality for gay and lesbian citizens, helping to set the stage for the day lesbian and gay couples secure equal federal marriage rights.       

The President Speaks Up About Gay and Lesbian Love and Marriage

During President Obama’s inauguration speech on January 21, 2013 the President stated, “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law—for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” 

In an LGBT pride proclamation, issued by the White House Office of the Press Secretary on June 1, 2012, the President stated, And because we must treat others the way we want to be treated, I personally believe in marriage equality for same-sex couples.”

Demonstrating that passion often follows politics, in a January survey of more than 500 LGBT singles using OneGoodLove.com, 65% of gay and lesbian singles reported that as states pass laws providing same-sex marriage rights, they find themselves more likely to consider marriage as their long-term dating goal.

 “Political efforts for full equality for LGBT citizens influence not only the quality of our lives, but the dreams and desires we allow ourselves to acknowledge as possible,” said Frank Mastronuzzi, Co-founder and Chief Love Officer at OneGoodLove.com.  

“President Obama showed a tremendous amount of courage standing up for marriage equality, given the inundation of opposition that was sure to follow,” said Nicholas Marlin, Co-founder and Director of Love at OneGoodLove.com.  “By standing up for our rights on such a definitive public stage, he clearly demonstrated his love for his ‘gay brothers and sisters.’   We felt a strong desire to show him that we love him back by naming President Obama our 2013 Honorary Gay Valentine. Mr. President, we love you!”

Stop Waiting for Love to Find You… Please Just Buy a Lottery Ticket Instead!

Because our offices are based in the heart of West Hollywood, my business partner Nicholas and I work for a few hours every morning at the local gay Starbucks, affectionately referred to as the “Gaybucks.” While there, we often talk to a lot of people about their online dating experiences and their challenges with being single in 2013. Unofficially, our friends at Starbucks have becomeOneGoodLove's incredible focus group in real time.
In fact, there is a group of three friends that shows up at this Starbucks every morning that we jokingly refer to as “The View,” because they sit at a high-top table drinking their coffee and talking about their dating lives and current events. It is a lot of fun to watch as the fourth seat at the table gets filled again and again by a “guest.” In turn, they joke about us hosting “office hours” for love advice for all the gays and lesbians who track through one of the busiest Starbuck stores in the country. After all, we remind them, our goal at OneGoodLove is to help every pot find its lid!
A recurring complaint we hear in our conversations at Starbucks is, “I just haven’t found the right person yet.” But when we press people further on what they are doing to be proactive to change their love life in 2013, we often get blank stares, sort of like the stare Mariah Carey recently gave on American Idol after hearing about how Nicki Minaj makes crispy turkey bacon each morning. Priceless.
Seriously, what continues to amaze us is that even when we help friends put profiles up on our site and give them free subscriptions, they tend to set up their profiles and wait for somebody to contact them. Seriously? We just don’t understand why people are great at going to the gym and changing their diets to keep their new year’s resolutions, but when it comes to their love lives, they just sit like a lame duck Congress and wait for something to happen. This approach brings to mind a saying my mom always says to me: “Honey, you can’t win the lottery if you don’t buy a lottery ticket.”
Come on! Really? Why are so many of you unwilling to make the first move when you see somebody you’re attracted to in the club, on an online dating site or right here at Starbucks? For God’s sake, please just smile and just say “hello” to the venti-two-pump-vanilla-skinny-latte guy with the great, scruffy face, tight Diesel jeans and killer Converse sneakers. Making the first move is extremely sexy, and you have nothing to lose!
We’ve heard enough already. For all you passive single folks out there, here is our tough love advice for 2013:
Stop your bitching and get off your ass. Be proactive with your love life in 2013 and actually start smiling and saying “hello” to that cute guy or girl at the grocery store. They won’t bite, and, at a minimum, they will say “hello” back. We promise. You will never find out if you don’t try something new. Go ahead and be the person to send the first email on that dating site. Take a chance.
Don’t do a half-assed job on your online dating profiles. Take the right amount of time on your profiles to make sure it communicates who you really are. Take new photos, and please do not use the same tired, old ones. Your friends want you to find love, so they will be more than happy to snap some photos of you.
Don’t set it and forget it. Many of you set up your profiles and then sit back and wait to be contacted. It’s not an advertisement. It’s an interactive profile, so make it interactive. Life will pass you by if you sit back and never jump into the center of the double-dutch jump rope. Send out some messages. Who cares if you don’t get a response back? Really, who cares? Get over yourself.
Set a few achievable goals. Initiate contact with two new people each day for a week. You will be pleasantly surprised by how just saying “hello” will change the number of messages you get. And here’s to many happy dates.

I mean, I also love the scene from Pretty Woman in which Edward comes charging up the street, hanging out of the sun roof of his white limo, holding an umbrella as a sword, and professing his love for Vivian. But Vivian doesn’t get to that point by sitting back and waiting for Edward to just come along. She puts herself out there. She buys a damn lottery ticket.
Much love, and happy dating!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
oneGoodLove.com Launches Beta 2.0 Relationship-Focused Dating Site For LGBT Singles 
Redesigned Site Offers “Marriage” as a Relationship Goal and Allows Armed Service Members to “Come Out”  
 Los Angeles, CA – July, 2012—oneGoodLove.com (www.onegoodlove.com), the Internet’s first relationship-focused online dating service for gay men and lesbians, announced today the launch of a 2.0 Beta site, redesigned with enhanced searching and matching, “marriage” as a stated relationship goal, and for the first time, allowing LGBT singles to identify as members of the United States Armed Forces during registration.   The new site, developed by members of the LGBT community, is live today with more than eighty-five thousand profiles of LGBT singles seeking loving relationships or marriage.
“Leading dating sites that focus on loving relationships and marriage have either rejected gays and lesbians from membership, like eHarmony did for years, or have treated them dismissively— willing to monetize the LGBT community, but rarely willing to customize a dating experience to actually meet their needs,” said Frank Mastronuzzi, Founder and CEO at oneGoodLove.com, and formerly senior manager of business development at Match.com.  “LGBT singles want what all singles want from their dating site, an opportunity to meet quality dates who are a good fit for them, based on the dating criteria they find meaningful.” Mastronuzzi is known to show up at dating industry events with Cinderella’s glass slipper, demonstrating the importance of “fit” for LGBT singles when dating online.   
A Newly Customized LGBT Dating Experience At oneGoodLove.com
Profiles include information pertinent to LGBT dating, including self-descriptions like “butch” or “femme,” HIV status, “top” or “bottom,” as well as the opportunity for singles  to describe how “out” they are.
Minimized “rejection factor,” as members are only matched with profiles of singles who are open to meeting someone like them, and have the option to only see profiles that match their stated dating criteria.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

oneGoodLove.com Launches Beta 2.0 Relationship-Focused Dating Site For LGBT Singles

Redesigned Site Offers “Marriage” as a Relationship Goal and Allows Armed Service Members to “Come Out”  

 Los Angeles, CA – July, 2012—oneGoodLove.com (www.onegoodlove.com), the Internet’s first relationship-focused online dating service for gay men and lesbians, announced today the launch of a 2.0 Beta site, redesigned with enhanced searching and matching, “marriage” as a stated relationship goal, and for the first time, allowing LGBT singles to identify as members of the United States Armed Forces during registration.   The new site, developed by members of the LGBT community, is live today with more than eighty-five thousand profiles of LGBT singles seeking loving relationships or marriage.

“Leading dating sites that focus on loving relationships and marriage have either rejected gays and lesbians from membership, like eHarmony did for years, or have treated them dismissively— willing to monetize the LGBT community, but rarely willing to customize a dating experience to actually meet their needs,” said Frank Mastronuzzi, Founder and CEO at oneGoodLove.com, and formerly senior manager of business development at Match.com.  “LGBT singles want what all singles want from their dating site, an opportunity to meet quality dates who are a good fit for them, based on the dating criteria they find meaningful.” Mastronuzzi is known to show up at dating industry events with Cinderella’s glass slipper, demonstrating the importance of “fit” for LGBT singles when dating online.   

A Newly Customized LGBT Dating Experience At oneGoodLove.com

Profiles include information pertinent to LGBT dating, including self-descriptions like “butch” or “femme,” HIV status, “top” or “bottom,” as well as the opportunity for singles  to describe how “out” they are.

Minimized “rejection factor,” as members are only matched with profiles of singles who are open to meeting someone like them, and have the option to only see profiles that match their stated dating criteria.

Dating focus at oneGoodLove.com is long-term relationships and marriage.  Hookups, flings and one night stands are not the goal of oneGoodLove members, setting it apart form other popular gay and lesbian dating sites.

Customized matching algorithm for same-sex couples, and the only dating personality profile test created specifically for the LGBT community by a gay relationship expert with a PhD in psychology, based upon research from long-term gay and lesbian couples.
