    Lavalife was a canadian based free dating system.
    Startup costs were less than 1m and sold in 2004 for 150m.

    Thats pretty successful if you ask me.

    Think we're all pretty much familiar with how POF started here in TWL. You're discussing something that's been discussed many times.

    There are probably tons. You don't always here about the successful ones and just because you don't see ads for them every day on TV doesn't mean they aren't banking.

    We would never had known about POF if the dude didn't get all excited to show off his check back then lol.
