Monday, 24 March 2008 launches a new form of internet dating has launched and seeks to offer a new style of internet dating. Part dating site, part social network, all new members are vetted and approved by the community. has been nominated in the North East digital awards in the 'best start-up website' category ( ) and is an interesting alternative to established dating sites.

"To become a member of iSuki, applicants are checked or vetted by members over a three day period. Applicants can become full members when their applications are passed by existing iSuki members in the gender and age range specified as desirable dates. All new applicants are rated based on their individual profile."

"Prospective members are also able to promote themselves by ‘livening up' their profile through a number of functions such as uploading video, music and pictures."

As social networks proliferate and become more focussed / more niche, I think Isuki is a novel twist and I am intrigued to see how it turns out.
