MeetMoi's Mobile Hookups Gets Financing

meetmoilogo.pngSee MobileCrunch’s coverage of mobile dating startup MeetMoi, which just closed a $1.5 million round of financing from Acadia Woods partners.

We’ve covered web dating services before, but MeetMoi takes dating to the streets. The service works a lot like Dodgeball. When you’re available for a date, you broadcast your location by texting the service. Other available daters that fit your search criteria (sex, location) receive an SMS of your profile, consisting of a picture and short description of yourself. If they’re interested they can text you back with their profile by replying to the message and set up a date. It costs 99 cents for 10 reply messages and your phone number is never revealed. The service is available on Cingular, Nextel, Boost, Sprint, T-Mobile, ALLTEL, and CellularOne.

MeetMoi is not GPS enabled. I can easily see mobile friend-finding services like Loopt and Helio integrating a similar GPS version of the system into their applications.
