TechStars Startup Ignighter Raises $1.2 Million For Group Dating(October 15, 2008 TechCrunch) 

Ignighter , the group dating site that is part of the TechStars class of 2008, has closed a $1.2 million angel funding round. CEO Adam Sachs says that the money will be used to expand its team (particularly its development staff), and will also be used for a marketing push to increase awareness.
Ignighter allows small groups of friends to collaborate on a group profile, where they can include photos and specify their interests. The site then presents a list of possible matches with other groups and helps them arrage get-togethers in the real world. The group environment helps avoid the awkward 1-on-1 situations that result from tradional dating sites like Match , and there’s less pressure – if you don’t hit it off with anyone, you can still have a good time hanging out with your buddies.

This site might be a site in which it looks for the joint party group on the site.

Such a site might succeed also in Japan also in Japan because the partner seeking site is becoming popular.
