Instead of meeting for one-on-one dates, we arrange for you to meet an entire group of local singles just like you in a fun and relaxed environment.Which also means we’re one of the few online dating and social networking sites that actually stacks the odds in your favor.
Generations before ours had no choice but to take this route.It remains to be seen if putting it in app form will make us accept it as new enough to be the next big thing.First's promise is that rather than investing all the time and energy up front, only to realize the second you meet someone that there's nothing there, you instead get the meeting out of the way first. It's a risky move, but there is a big potential payoff for everyone who's got swipe fatigue.This is, of course, the most old-fashioned way of doing things.Kain argues, however, that the whole swipe/chat/repeat process is a huge time suck.
He thinks these apps have turned into more of a social or entertainment platform, and he wants to focus exclusively on getting people out on the dates.Though, if you think about it, the kind of evening someone puts together could be pretty revealing.Still, so many things about this approach go against the prevailing wisdom of dating apps, which is that you should be able to save time and fuss by learning as much as possible from a person based on their profile and their chats. Maybe it’s dinner at the newest hotspot, a sporting event you’ve got an extra ticket to, or something way more low-key like a quick drink. You set up a quick profile (using your Facebook login), and then you can create whatever date experience you feel like.You pick the winning bidder, and then the date is set.
