Hook Café personals place closed on 12/31
Sorry, folks, but due to the rise of other ways to meet lovin' ladies and gents, the Hook is announcing that we are closing the "Hook Café" on New Year's Eve. We launched this online dating service back in 2005, back when some of our competitors were offering 900-numbers (remember those?) and other odd ways to get involved. Back then, the Hook Café was actually considered a form of social media. However, recent years have witnessed the arrival of many free online dating services and some sophisticated social media sites– most notably Facebook. And the Hook Café has not really provided the vibrant scene it used to provide. So goodbye! Thanks to everyone who used it, and thanks particularly to the talented Andy Sutcliffe whose company, SelectAlternatives, powered it.
