MeetMoi's Gets $1.5 Million for Mobile Hookups

meetmoilogo.pngVenture Beat and the Wall Street Journal are reporting mobile dating startup MeetMoi has closed $1.5 million in financing from Acadia Woods Partners.

MeetMoi works like Dodgeball for dating. After verifying your phone, you fill out a basic profile consisting of a picture, the kind of relationship you want, and personal description. When you’re in the mood for a meetup, you text your location to 94810, which broadcasts you as available to other singles that meet your search criteria. Each potential date gets your profile over SMS. If they like what they see and read, they can simply text back by replying to the profile SMS and schedule a date.
The service is free to register, costs 99 cents for 10 anonymous text messages, and is currently available on Cingular, Nextel, Boost, Sprint, T-Mobile, ALLTEL and CellularOne. GigaOm has a good roundup of some other mobile dating services: Jumbuck, Webdate mobile, and mobile.
