Hinge and Lively hope to be at the forefront of the eventual, seemingly inevitable, push to make video a regular part of the digital dating experience.
Lively, a video-based social app, recently announced the release of augmented live video chat, while Hinge debuted a feature to add video clips to profiles.
Yet despite the success stories, online dating remains mysteriously absent from that race to innovate.
On the surface, the search for love seems like an ideal candidate for video - if a picture on a profile is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth several times that - but few dating services have dared incorporate video into their features.
I like people who have brains, humor and wit, spunk, self-confidence (not narcissism), resilience, strength of character, a willingness to learn and be taught (humility), those who have been through some sh-t in life and pushed through it (I am not going to make your lemonade for you).

90% of your online success is based on your photos.
Your opening headshot is the most important photo you have - it must capture someone's attention instantly, and make them want to learn more.
I have noticed the following dating profile about a month ago, and I decided to post it here with very minor changes, as I consider this the most interesting and overall – the best female online dating profile I have seen so far, or at least one of the very best.She is articulate, funny, and opinionated at the very least.“I have always winced at the thought of online dating… After being thoroughly disappointed in the trashy local nightlife, I have come to the conclusion that meeting people here might not be the worst idea.Attach a handful of unique photos to your account as well.Keep your profile positive and you soon will be attracting all sorts of potential partners.
