Once you “Score” with someone, your profile picture will be unlocked; the more you score, the more your profile will open up to your pursuer.
But let’s backtrack: To score, you can choose a specific category and start answering questions with someone whose profile you scrolled through.
The Grade The Grade is the free, “female-friendly” response to Tinder’s domino-esque flops—namely women not responding to men. To be exact, it was designed “for the most desirable singles and aims to create a community of desirable, responsive, and articulate singles by expelling ‘failing’ users.” The Grade uses an “objective” algorithm to expel low-quality members they deem hostile, offensive, and undesirable.
Your behavior is graded on profile popularity (based on if you have compelling content, interesting photos, and how often your profile is “liked”), responsiveness (how often you respond and get a response back), and message quality (spelling mistakes, use of slang, inappropriate words); together these cumulative assigned letter grades are slapped on your profile, so women can see if you’re an A or less than.
Founder Dan Ilani told am New York that with the influx of Tinder-esque dating apps popping up in the marketplace, there’s been a reduction of quality matches.
“What I realized was missing from the experience that I was having was not just finding people with shared interests, but really people with a shared mindset,” Ilani said.
The new app, exclusive to New York City, is hitting i Tunes early next week.
It’s a dating app geared toward the fitness community (as you can infer from the name), which allows users to answer questions about their fitness regimen, then matches them with men or women who have similar lifestyle, fitness, and wellness preferences.
Facebook can be thought of as a hub for our virtual lives.“That's an interesting filter that is harder to come by these days.In the last decade or so, fitness has gone from becoming fit to a culture and a lifestyle.” He says the app works like any other dating app, only the visual experience looks more like Instagram.“Some of the questions we ask you are your favorite time of day to work out and your average frequency of workouts per week, and behind the scenes we use those calculations to make some guesses about your overall lifestyle and offer good quality options." Obviously attraction and compatability don't work like an equation, so people who work out four times a week shouldn’t match with others solely based on the fact they also work out four times a week.You’ll also display your favorite type of workout (running, Cross Fit, yoga, etc) as an indicator of your interests, too.If you like the idea of browsing for potential lovers, girlfriends, or even a wife on your phone, but aren’t so keen on the randomness of Tinder, check out these five apps new to the dating scene.
