GamerDating is OUT of BETA!
After seven years in beta GamerDating.com, the world’s first dating site dedicated to gamers, finally and formally launches on desktop and mobile web!
But the development doesn't stop here.
We have matchmaking queues, new email systems, game matches, profile updates and, of course, all improvements based from feedback you all sent in <3
Just as we bundle games into our subscription sign ups, we'll never stop giving back.

THINGS TO COME!
With constant development, a dedication to creating a community of gamers and a place to seek out your special Player 2, GamerDating.com still has things to come.
Our new matchmaking system will add an extra level of sophistication.
Currently we're optimizing how and when advanced matchmaking emails will get sent out to you via the advanced matchmaking system. Most of the feedback we've gathered has been that twice a week is enough – anymore and it's a little hectic up in your inboxes!
With advanced matchmaking we'll be able to find you better and current matches.
When you login and view your dashboard you'll be able to see your usual top matches.
If you miss a day, you'll still generate close matches and as each day ticks by you'll see the number of matches will expand (like MMR or region extension when searching for games), giving you the chance to find that special someone. This is currently set to generate a set number of matches per day based on user feedback (too many, too overwhleming, it doesn't feel special, not enough, and people miss out on the potential for serendipity).
To help you find the best matches possible, we are adding a queue to your matchmaking. The queue will keep those current members waiting to be 1-upped or bombed, and show you how many are left in the queue for the day.
This queue refreshes daily.
When you run out of matches, you can refresh your match queue and our system will offer you new ones. Or of course, you can click "Find a Date" and refine your search for your special Player 2 at any time to browse ALL members on GamerDating.com.
Advanced Matchmaking Email Improvements
With all these matches flowing onto your dashboard, if you miss a day or are away from a reliable connection, don't worry. Not only will your matches be stored in your queue, but you'll be emailed a notification of those potential partners.
We will be rolling this update post launch +1 week, simply to allow our user and email bandwidth to stablize and figure how best to optimize a level of sending to you all, so as to:
These emails can, of course, be reduced in frequency, turned off entirely or sent with each group of matches found. If you are not a fan of email communication, you can change your settings in your Account Settings under "Mailing" and unsubscribe with ease.
Your matches next week will be sent twice weekly.
Matches go straight into your inbox you've shared with us.
While we can reveal the above features coming soon, we can't yet reveal the awesome features we have in the pipeline!
You know the drill – if a developer releases information about a feature and it vanishes or is delayed, they'll have hell to pay. We feel for them!
We are adding certain third-party integrations for sign up, as we imagine most gamers will already be users. We did use Facebook for a while, but due to privacy concerns we stepped away, so worry not. It won't be Facebook. ;)
WE HOPE YOU FIND LOVE!
If you've read all this and have not yet taken the chance to win a RTX 2080Ti or the latest consoles, get over to the contest page!
Thank you for being a part of GamerDating and helping us make the gaming community a better place.
