    When looking at dating websites and site like Badoo...they do an exceptionally well job at finding nearby users in other cities.

    What kind of queries are they running to be so accurate?

    Are they trying to find all users that have the first 3 numbers of the zip code in common to find nearby users? This can't work because it has limitations.

    Microsoft has something similar for MSSQL.
