No longer content with just connecting travelers to the cheapest airfares, hotel rooms and car rentals, Kayak.com is now putting its algorithm skills to the test with a new online dating service.
Similar to its travel-related searches, the service pulls profiles from online dating sites – including OkCupid, eHarmony, Match.com and even Craigslist – and then compares them in one easy-to-filter interface.
Using the new service, single people begin searching for potential matches based on location, age and sexual preference. From there, users can sort results by dating characteristics and personality traits using an interface that works in the exact same manner as Kayak.com’s hotel and flight filters. These filters vary, but include body type, diet and pets, meaning now users can find the skinny, vegan cat-lover they’ve always been searching for.
“[Kayak.com] will apply its superior metasearch capabilities to its best use yet – finding true love,” said a representative from the website in a press release. “Why search dozens of online dating services yourself, when you could search [Kayak.com] and compare hundreds of dating sites at once?”
