No one can join the site without having a recommending friend.However, this doesn’t mean that if you don’t have a kind-hearted and/or meddling mate who would sign you up, then you’re doomed to being single forever.The site, called “Jess, Meet Ken” works like this: A woman creates a profile for a man she likes but isn’t interested in dating.Other women check out these profiles and, if any of the guys catch their eye, they contact the user who posted the profile to learn more about that man.
If that’s the case an important step when looking at how to start dating a friend is getting the girl to see you in a different light.But friends, that know us well, might instinctively highlight a potential great match we might otherwise pass over.And even if you do have some friends with a naughty streak in their sense of humour, fret not for no one can add anything to or delete anything from your profile without your consent.All your suitable matches are sitting nicely in the special “recommendations” folder where you can check them out whenever you wish.Plus you can obviously perform your own search too, but we’ll come back to that later.If you're hatching a scheme to "accidentally" run into a few friends on your next date, stop. Think about it: how would you feel if you were envisioning a romantic evening for two and suddenly you found yourself surrounded by an entire cheerleading squad?Of course, if you're particular cheerleader, the appearance of her entire squad might not be such a welcome development. To ask them if they think the two of you should continue dating?You can join on your own as well, but you need to provide details (such as name and email address, both confidential, of course) for a friend who would then write a recommendation for you.In any case, rest assured that only you and you alone can add vital information about yourself.Years ago, Ken’s best friend Adele created a dating profile for him on an old website similar to Jess, Meet Ken.Jess, who was on the site to create a profile for a co-worker, came across Ken’s page and reached out to Adele about him. According to their website, the Deckingers got married four years later and now have three little girls. I feel very blessed to have met Jess and to have our family, and we are really excited to be able to offer that to people,” Ken Deckinger told the Daily News.
