New Background Check-Focused Relationship Site Lumidate Announces Membership Drive and iPad Mini Giveaway

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Lumidate seeks to build an online dating community where the guiding principles are member peace of mind and assurance that the individuals that they meet on the site are who they say they are. As part of the site's initial membership drive, Lumidate is giving away 1,000 free premium memberships; the first 500 men and 500 women who successfully pass their background checks will enjoy all the privileges of premium membership for 3 months at no cost.

Everyone who joins during this membership drive will also be registered to win an iPad Mini; New Colorado and California members will have even more incentive: the chance to win a professional photo shoot with Denver Metro residents can also register to win Professional Salon Services from Jennifer Mariani's Hairstyling ) in Littleton, CO. ($200.00 Value). To sign up or learn more about Lumidate, please visit

Lumidate provides peace of mind and transparency via background checks for new premium members. The site even goes a step further, with rescreening of all members on a monthly basis at no additional cost to the member. These background checks involve a confirmation of marital status and a thorough search of Enhanced National Criminal Search (including the National Sex Offender Registry), County Criminal Conviction Search, SSN# and address verification and civil court records. Lumidate subscribes to a "First Alert" service, which provides instant notification when a member has been arrested. Similarly, as part of the site's Terms of Use, members cannot misrepresent their identity in any way ("catfishing").

In addition to the exhaustive background check, premium members also receive the following benefits:

  • A video introduction to enhance their profiles beyond still photographs;
  • Real-time communications via the Lumidate Community;
  • Mobile access courtesy of the Lumidate Mobile app;
  • Access to the Lumidate Personality Assessment Survey.

One of the distinguishing factors of Lumidate is that matches will not be "fed" to members. Rather, the innovative Lumidate Personality Assessment Survey will be used to help members determine if they are matches for each other. The Assessment shows members a summary of their personality traits and then provides a matrix that helps members decide who would be their best potential matches. Unlike other dating sites, Lumidate does not merely try to match "like" with "like." Lumidate's philosophy is that members themselves should be equipped with the ability to choose their matches.

"When I founded VerifiedMyDate, I made the commitment that our website, would provide a healthy environment for dating–a safe and empowering experience, designed to inspire dating confidence," said Linda Dusenbury, CEO and President of Lumidate. "Ultimately, Lumidate is in a class by itself in terms of encouraging personal responsibility, choice and accountability in the world of online relationships."

Lumidate anticipates rapid growth and hopes to serve a national audience. The first series of launches will take place in Colorado, California and New York, although the site is already accepting members nationwide.
