Have members of your team actually been through the slog of dating apps?

YES. Part of this innovation comes from our own frustrations with the superficiality of modern dating apps. We were genuinely exhausted by the “need to swipe” and the endless virtual small talk that led nowhere meaningful. As a team, we didn’t feel that dating apps took our time, authenticity, and individual flare seriously. And so, we sought to create a space built for confident people seeking offline connections through online spaces.
