So why not do the research for users and make all of the information available in-app, she thought. After assessing your education institutions, degrees, professional titles, number of referrals, preferences, and influencer status, an algorithm tallies up a score, and a human team reviews your photos.
You won’t be accepted with a keg stand action shot, Bradford explained.
Spending an entire Sunday hungover, in sweats, on the couch, eating Mexican/Chinese/Italian, talking to your girlfriends about what happened last night and scrolling through dating profiles. No matter how good your profile is, your picture is eleventythousand more times important. This is what they’re saying inside when they look at your picture: – If taken in the bathroom mirror: is the line for on-line dating. – ECU of a single feature: You’re hiding something. Stare until his image is burned into your brain, and feel free to imagine if he’ll go well with that sundress you just bought, and in your passenger seat, and with your faces squished together in a photo booth.

According the startup’s founder Amanda Bradford, dating apps tend to fall short for successful singles, and they’re clamoring for a fresh option. “Online dating has typically not been great, especially for women who receive offensive messages and photos,” Bradford told me. “There are so many profiles that people clearly haven’t put a lot of time or effort into, and on certain apps, people just joke around and make fun of the process,” she said, “so I wanted to mitigate these kinds of behaviors from the beginning and build a community from the ground up.” And Bradford candidly owned up to the marginal stalking most of us do before linking up with a match in real life.
