It appears that Jewish dating site Jdate has filed a patent lawsuit against the following dating sites:

  • Zoosk.com
  • OKCupic.com
  • 2RedBeans.com

According to the complaint, JDate alleges that these companies are infringing the same patent, which states that Sparks Network (JDate’s parent company) has invented a method or apparatus for automating the process of confidentially determining whether people feel mutual attraction or have mutual interests. That’s right, JDate has a patent on detecting secret crushes.
