The New York Daily News reports on “Web entrepreneur Elissa Shevinsky” (pictured) who has created two dating sites dedicated to casual encounters. “I am here to help Brooklyn get together,” she tells the tabloid, adding, “And I don’t judge what they are going to do.”
Her sites are JoinJspot.com for Jewish singles (swingles if you dare) and MakeOutLabs.com for the gentiles. They are currently in a “private beta” which means you’ll need to apply for an invite to join in on the fun. Oy to the vey indeed.
As for Shevinsky, her LinkedIn profile reflects the life of a serial entrepreneur. The 33 year old lists her specialties as “Growth Hacker. Hustler. Biz Dev. Partnerships. Project Management. Software Development. Coffee Roasting.”
But what’s all of this got to do with Brooklyn Heights you ask? THIS GUY:
