Profile & Matching

You can see who is near to your location, making it easier to meet up.
Behavioral matchmaking engines monitor the behaviour of thousands of users in order to spot common patterns. This knowledge is then used in helping you to find a match, without having to fill in lots of lengthy questionnaires and so on.
You have to fill out your profile information and answer a general questionnaire (it might be time consuming, but is very useful for finding possible matches).
You can benefit from quickly browsing profiles and deciding yes or no – e.g., swiping right to "like" a user, or swiping left to "take a pass.”

You can search through singles using filters such as age, education, height or even body type. It is useful if you are looking for something specific.

This feature is aimed at creating real life meet ups, and fast. You can use it at events such as a concert, or even at a coffee shop to see if there are any singles about.
This feature means you can avoid interacting with someone if you have already had contact in the past – e.g., viewed profiles, favorited or sent messages to each other. This feature can avoid wasting time and also avoid any potential embarrassment.
