This month, the site launched at 140 more schools nationwide, giving more college students the opportunity to meet their future husbands or wives.
Alexa and Meyer, both recent graduates of the Business School, came up with the idea after a girlfriend complained that there was not enough testosterone in the School of Social Work.
"If somebody really has their heart on meeting somebody from Princeton, this is a great way to narrow down the search," Spira said.

The Pew Internet & American Life Project surveyed the number of online daters in 2006.
"I think we are responsible for more than half of the dates and meetings between students on campus," Alexa said.
