Other sites act more as matchmaker services and agencies, where people fill out a comprehensive form about themselves which is then looked at by people who work for the service, who then in turn try to match with another member based on the two members' interests and other information.
Ben Rabizadeh was actually one of Frumster’s first users back in 2001.
