3 new and quirky dating apps
Of all the new dating apps that have come along recently, here are a few noteworthy/interesting ones to check out:
1. Find a match based on burrito preference
Because hobbies and interests are as transient as the weather; how you order a burrito is forever.
According to an article in Brit + Co:
The great news is we’ve got just enough time to find the perfect date for National Burrito Day (that’s April 4, by the way). So how does it work? Burrit-OH! “uses a new, game-changing burrito compatibility framework to match potential daters and firmly insert burritos into every aspect of the online dating experience.” Yes, really. Do you like a classic mild salsa or is salsa verde your jam? Is beef or chicken your No. 1 choice? Or maybe vegetarian? Burrit-OH! will help you find your soul mate based on the 32 Ingredients™ of a burrito order, complete with a user interface that’s plastered with ALL. THE. BURRITOS.
2. Find a match based on T.V. and movie preferences
The next step in the evolution of “Netflix and chill”?
According to an article in Decider:
The free app, which is gearing up to launch its Beta version at the end of this month on iOS, is not just another Tinder clone. The main commonality between the two apps is limited to the swiping feature—though Pilot matches are determined by swiping up or down rather than left or right—and the ability to login via Facebook. Essentially, Pilot aims to take away the hook-up stigma of app-based dating and turn it into a way to match, talk, and meet new people all while connecting over TV shows and movies that you both love.
While on Tinder people see common interests via Facebook likes—which, let’s face it, are mostly outdated pages we liked on a whim in 2009—Pilot lets users input their favorite movies and TV shows and measure commonality that way.
3. Earn approval from her friends
Now the friends of your matches get to have an ability formerly limited to NSA personnel: stalk your online communication.
According to an article in Engadget:
Now, here’s where it gets iffy: if you’re a woman, you can invite your girl friends into a private convo you’ve been having with a potential date. We’re not talking about having an honest-to-goodness group chat — no, your friends would be totally invisible to the person you’re talking to. They can send messages within the convo that the other person wouldn’t be able to read. And even those who aren’t looking for a date can sign up and go on “Ghost Mode” just to be able to eavesdrop on conversations.
