He guaranteed me a great time with "3 real girls. I was interested in the idea of a group date, even as a funny diversion. It's a bizarre idea: a three-on-three blind date. So sure, why not? It'd go horribly, of course—but it'd be something to write about, and a novel take on online dating, for a change. So I gave Jerry a Grouper dating website, why not" response, and assumed the rest would be smooth from there.
Besides, it sounded kind of fascinating! At least in the way Jerry described it:. We have a girl:guy ratio right now and it's pretty much Grouper dating website only app I can think of where after 1 min of work giving us your FB credentials you can meet 3 real girls and where we've done all the work, include setting up reservations at an awesome lounge. Cool tech! Facebook integration! This was some next level cyberlove shit, and I wanted to peek behind the curtain.
I asked Jerry for more information on what he called a " very sophisticated logistical engine," and he sent me some images of their back end. There was no algorithm.
No sophisticated logistics engine. Just a list of names. Next to them was the income they'd listed for themselves, along with other, extremely mundane information. Grouper is the equivalent of picking six names out of a hat, and hoping they all bone. The cost to him? However much time it takes to pick three girls for three guys, and Google a bar for them to meet at. This is a low-rent operation. While I was figuring this out, I was receiving incessant calls from Jerry, still hoping Grouper dating website go out on a fake date I knew was cobbled together from the heap of half baked internet schlock.
Multiple calls, every day. We eventually went on the date. The somewhat-ominously referred to "girls" Jerry kept promising us materialized, and we basically immediately scared them off. The whole thing lasted less than 10 minutes. So it's no Grouper dating website he's been called out as a fraud. It's not the first timeafter all. And it's no surprise he's abandoning Grouper already. His site is an Grouper dating website husk.
I've talked to the people at Match. There's serious science put into these serious dating sites. Grouper, on the other hand, is a charlatan's Russian roulette—only the gun's against your head. But in the meantime, Jerry's foisted himself Grouper dating website the tech scene as a pioneer, innovator, and matchmaker.
He's none of these things—just a lazy fake who's horny for attention, and access to your Facebook. Update: Jerry Guo's posted an apology on his TumblrBetaBeat reportsthough not for running a shitty website. Rather, he's fessing up to pretending to be a journalist in order to gain insider knowledge from another social network so that he could make said shitty website.
At least he's on the righteous path to expiation. Sam - We set you up on an actual Grouper of which we've done over You, without warning, arrived with cameras and a fourth person then told the girls you were going to use their real identities in your piece. They promptly stormed out, immediately called us to complain about this and that you were disrespectful to bootand demanded a refund which we of course granted them.
We never showed you our matching process or logistics engine we gave you a single screen shot of one admin dashboard - off the record. Also, I would kindly request an apology to the three poor girls who were actual members who we never met whose night you ruined. If anyone has any more questions about Grouper I'd be more than happy to answer them.
