On the flip side, men in the Business School often wished for more women study buddies.
If potential lovers weren't meeting in the classroom, the university needed a better platform for both sexes to interact.
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.
Spira, who tried online dating in 1994 before and existed, explained that people now feel comfortable talking to others and forming relationships online. it wouldn't have allowed online dating to really become what I feel is now social dating," she said.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project surveyed the number of online daters in 2006.
"The guys place the same priority on education and the same passion for their careers as I do," Hirner said.
While Date My School's creators want to distance themselves from Facebook, Spira credits it for lifting the stigma surrounding online dating.
Improving your looks online In its first few months, Date My School was only offered to undergraduate and graduate students at 20 schools, including Columbia, New York University, Harvard University and MIT.
The site took off at a rapid pace, as 1,300 students at Columbia signed up in the first week.
But Date My School has inched its way in and formed a niche for students searching for a boyfriend or girlfriend who shares the same educational goals and understands school comes first on the priority list.
Lara Hirner, a grad student at Columbia University's Teachers College, has gone on dates to the opera, Central Park and ice cream shops with guys she met on Date My School.
"I think we are responsible for more than half of the dates and meetings between students on campus," Alexa said.
