True was an online dating service that was founded in 2003 by entrepreneur Herb Vest. Its original name was True Beginnings.com, but the company felt that this name was too limiting, as company leadership wanted to expand the company into other markets one day.
Unfortunately, the ongoing war is one that's highlighted whenever Valentine's Day approaches.
True is known for its strict policies regarding background checks, which are used to ensure that members are not felons or married.
Vest reports 16 million total members, as of May 2007, True advertised aggressively online and spent .2 million in online advertising from January to November 2006, more than any other online dating service.
As of December, 2013, (TRUE Beginnings LLC) went bankrupt and shut down their web site (see Story).
