#LDR - a website for people who are in a long-distance relationship

Looking for: Advisor, Biz developer, Designer, Developer
Statistics show that there are over 10 million of us from where I originally come from who work or live in overseas countries. You multiply that by 2 or 3 and that will give you the number of potential website users because each of us 10 million overseas workers and immigrants has at least a person or two we maintain a long distance relationship with be it our partners, children, parents, siblings or friends.  And of course, people from other places who are in some kind of long distance relationship can also become potential users.

So my idea is to create a website that will become a communication tool specific for people who are in either a short-term or long-term long distance relationships with their partners, families and friends. The aim of this website is to improve the way they communicate with each other day or night and help alleviate the worries of their loved ones by relevant information posting.

The main problem for people like us who have relations in many different time zones is that we always have to stop and figure out what time or day it is over where they are before we contact them. Although, there are world clock applications to make it easier for us but the thing is we have to open it for every relation every time. So I thought, a simple website and mobile website that people with loved ones who live in different time zones or move from one time zone to another(as in the case of seafarers) could sign up with to use. If they have an account, they can find and add as many overseas relations they have who also use the same online service. The main features will be location, local time and the schedule for the day of the users which are essential for effective and efficient communication.  All your loved ones, what they're up to and what time it is wherever they are at that particular time you opened the website, you will see all those information at one go. Which means it will give you an idea that if you rang or sent them a message how likely they were to answer it or respond to you straightaway.
