About Us 

5050dating was created as a dating website in 2015 and is privately owned and situated in Auckland, New Zealand.

Why 5050?

So what’s 'fairer for everyone' about 5050? It’s the guiding principle behind our name - going 50/50 in a 'no strings attached you pay for yours and I'll pay for mine' coffee. We believe that by placing both parties on an equal footing (by each paying for their own coffee) that this takes a little of the stress out of meeting someone for the very first time. It means that no party need be obligated in any way to the other. 

  • Please bear in mind that going 50/50 in a 'no strings attached coffee' is only our recommendation. You can message and arrange to meet with someone in any manner you like. However, we do not take any responsibility for the conduct or behaviour of anyone registered on the 50/50 website at a first meeting and also recommend that you do not drink alcohol during that meeting. For safety reasons, we also advise that a second meeting (or first date) should be arranged via the 5050 website, this eliminates the need to give out personal details. 

Why Intro?

In the real world (as opposed to the online/virtual world) we believe that the best way to meet someone is by being introduced by a friend or third party. As this is not possible here online, we believe that introducing yourself using 5050's Intro is the next best option.

Why 5050 Verification? 

By completing our simple 5050 Verified form it lets others know that you acknowledge 5050's guidelines and that your identity is 'Verified' by the presence of your vlog.

* Your 5050 V badge will appear on your profile photo only when you have a vlog present.

Why Vlog?

After you've been meeting people for a while, you're going to get 'daters fatigue' or just plain sick of meeting new people. The concept behind vlog is not only safety (a vlog can verifify someones identity) but also to help you decide whether you'd actually like to meet the person in question. 

Privacy

We are nuts about privacy. We are not a corporation or aligned with any other business or dating site here or overseas. Our website is not based on a template. 5050 was designed and built from the ground up. We do not use social sign-ins like Facebook, Linked-In, Google + or Twitter because we regard social sign-ins as a threat to privacy. We do not share information or sell information to third parties. We do not use Cookies to store personal information. We do not sell, collect or share information or data for the purposes of targeted advertising. Our registration process is simple, and it's our own. The information you provide when you register is used only for the sole purpose of providing a better dating service. We like the idea of you being in control of your own information, not us.

  • Please be aware. As a safeguard never upload any photos, vlog, personal information or conduct yourself in a manner that you wouldn't feel comfortable sharing with the rest of the world. This is the internet and we can't  guarantee that any of your personal info is ever completely safe.

Payment

You can join 5050 for free as a Friend, but you don't even have to register to 'See Who's Here.' You can Search Singles right on the Homepage. If you do decide to register, you can then take up one of our free options to trial 5050 to see if it's what you're looking for.  Then if you like us, you can choose a payment option that suits you or simply remain registered as a Friend for free.

Dating

Once upon a time, there was such a thing as the Personal Column. Or The Personals. Or Lonely Hearts. Now there's online dating. Only back in the day, no one ever saw what you looked like until you actually met! Oh yes, big surprise. And messaging was reliant on the post - now called 'snail mail.' The internet has simply made dating faster and easier. Although we understand that uploading a profile photo and having your face 'out there' can make you feel, well, 'exposed' and uploading a vlog? Ditto. In order for online dating to work successfully (unless you want to go back to snail mail)  - it's important you complete your profile and even upload a vlog. Yes, time has moved right along and with it - ways of meeting people.
