Google has today announced Google Romance, an online dating search service that utilizes Soulmate Search technology.

Users of Google Romance enjoy an all-expenses-paid romantic evening in exchange for viewing contextually relevant advertising throughout the course of the date.

“Our mission, as you might have heard, is to organize the world’s information,” said Jonathan Rosenberg, Google’s senior vice president, product management. “And let’s face it: in what area of life is the world’s information more disorganized than romance? We thought we could use our search technology to help you find that special someone, then send you on a date and use contextual ads to help you, ya know – close the deal.”

You can see more details at the Google Romance FAQ or via the press release – be sure to check out the all new Google “boiler plate” at the end of the release.

Nice work guys! 😉

    Very funny, but you have to think that with the level of detail that Google went into with Google Romance some serious conversations have taken place. We have heard that Google Health is in the works so why not matchmaking.

  • I agree, not too far from being a real service. Although I read in today’s WSJ that the dating industry is leveling off with only a 7% growth rate this year (down from double digits).
