Mobile dating services, also known as cell dating, cellular dating, or cell phone dating, allow individuals to chat, flirt, meet, and possibly become romantically involved by means of text messaging, mobile chatting, and the mobile web.
These services allow their users to provide information about themselves in a short profile which is either stored in their phones as a dating ID or as a username on the mobile dating site.
Proxi Dating was one of the first dating services using bluetooth.
In 2004 Match, Webdate and Lavalife were the mobile dating early leaders.
This is already a significant increase from 2011 (6.3 million).
