LinkedIn to Get LinkedUp?

I haven't found love in my everyday life, and I’ve always been opposed to online dating. I’m more a fan of traditional dating, nothing is sexier than having a man approach, hold an engaging conversation, ask for my number and then follow up with a phone call. Plus the thought of meeting some one online scares the hell out of me (too many Law and Order and Criminal Minds episodes).

I said I was going to make more of an effort to meet someone and my girlfriend has been telling me about this dating app called LinkedUp! No hiding your identity like on other dating sites. On the LinkedUp! site your profile is linked to your professional LinkedIn profile and as my girlfriend puts it "at least I’ll know that he has career" – I’m sold!

Using the LinkedIn app I will be able to see where he works, where he went to school and also if we have any connected contacts via LinkedIn. I like to think that if you have a LinkedIn profile you value your career so the quality of men maybe different from the ones I’m meeting on the street (crossing my fingers).

I’m really considering downloading the app and creating a profile. I’ve even been updating my LinkedIn profile just in case I do decide to finally give online dating a shot.

I’m thinking that of all the online dating sites, this would be the safest dating site. What do you think would you date someone you met on LinkedIn ?
