Many dating apps like Tinder and the like have fallen into the trap of forcing users to make a decision about a prospective date, based solely upon a photograph – no communication allowed. This was intended to ensure mutual connections, however, it has instead forced people to “like” just about anyone so a conversation can be started. This seems to be like a headless chicken running around and reminds me of the worst form of desperation.
SinglesAroundMe® the word’s first location based dating app and one of the most popular is different than Tinder and is designed to mirror the real world. “People are open to talk to one another and to express their personality and likeability and ultimately influence the first impression of their photo,” said company founder and CEO Christopher Klotz. “Ultimately we don’t agree with the gatekeeper mentality of many dating apps these days where users are forced to like up to 50% or more of the photos they see, just in the hopes of talking to someone,” Klotz said.
“The Ashley Madison scandal highlighted that many so called dating apps are dishonest with their user base and contain company generated fake accounts. At SinglesAroundMe® GPS mapping of users is our ultimate differentiator and verification feature to ensure that our user base is real,” said Klotz.
SinglesAroundMe® more REAL than other dating apps!
Thursday November 19th 2015 – New York, New York; London, England; Ottawa, Canada:
SinglesAroundMe® (SAM), The world’s first location based dating app and one of the most popular showcased today, its claim to be more real than other dating apps.
Pulling up screen shots of users in 30 world cities on every continent, SinglesAroundMe® CEO and founder Christopher Klotz demonstrated how users within close proximity of each other are dynamically plotted on a map interface and are visible to each other. With all user locations GPS verified through the smart-phone it ensures that SinglesAroundMe users are real people looking to make real connections, providing a higher level of authenticity amongst users of the app.
The Ashley Madison scandal highlighted that many so called dating apps are dishonest with their user base and contain company generated fake accounts. “At SinglesAroundMe® GPS mapping of users is our ultimate differentiator and verification feature to ensure that our user base is real. The majority of dating apps originated from legacy Internet web sites, where their underlying technology is not GPS based. These sorts of companies tend to falsely claim that they are location based when they are not and are susceptible to people creating fake accounts in locations all over the world. The location mapping that we do removes any doubt,” Klotz said.
SinglesAroundMe® is backed by patent pending technology that provides users with location privacy options whereby they can show, hide or even shift their last “check-in” location on maps by a few miles. These features allow users to enjoy the benefits of location, while deciding when and how they wish to display their location within the vicinity of other users. User locations are only updated when a user opens the app and runs a SinglesAroundMe (SAM) search, ensuring that their anonymity remains protected at all times.
Five years ago we became fascinated by the idea of leveraging modern cell phone GPS technology to discover new ways for single people to meet. We were disenfranchised with Internet dating and frustrated by the lack of immediacy, real world opportunities and simply thought there was a better way for people to discover one another. SinglesAroundMe was born to solve this problem and we became the very first location based mobile dating app in the world. It may sound crazy but we wanted you to be able to meet single people around you today and if you traveled somewhere tomorrow, to meet a whole new group of people instantly. Today the name SinglesAroundMe has become a marque brand and is used by millions of people around the world everyday.
