Dating group idea
So if the single person only wants to see matches four miles away from them, the app will show their friends people four miles from wherever they’re located.If a friend sees someone they think would be a good match, they can swipe right on them, bringing their profile into the group chat.But it’s clear that Match is deeply involved: one portion of Ship’s website mistakenly calls the app by another Match Group app name, Hinge, so they’re using language from other apps and presumably relying on tested dating app technology.What differentiates this Match launch from any other is that Betches already has a built-in, dedicated audience.Your friends are going to know about your fights, your sex life and just about any problem you have in your relationship. You can kiss the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ thing goodbye.There’s no making a clean break when you date someone in your friends group.Betches’ co-founders tell me that Match supplies the tech expertise for Ship while they provide the branding, marketing, and bigger idea.
Of course, it’s relatively easy to build and place a dating app in the App Store in 2019, but actually luring users is a challenge.
You know you’re going to cross paths again, you know it’s going to be uncomfortable when you have to see him every time you want to go out with your friends and how awkward is it going to be when he starts bringing his new girlfriend around?
Your friend group will suffer if it doesn’t work out.
It has a massive following across various platforms.
The app, which launches today, allows a single user to create a group of people who are allowed to swipe for them.
