Founder Dan Ilani told am New York that with the influx of Tinder-esque dating apps popping up in the marketplace, there’s been a reduction of quality matches.“What I realized was missing from the experience that I was having was not just finding people with shared interests, but really people with a shared mindset,” Ilani said.
Happn Happn takes a different route than the usual dating app (literally and figuratively) by helping you connect with women you’ve crossed paths with before.
They do this by keeping track of where you are (in real time), and when another user passes a spot you’ve been to before, their profile will pop up on your feed.
Score will show you how you scored with one another, which clues you in on whether you’re compatible.
The more you score with someone, the more “score history” you build, which you can then use to break the ice and use as conversation topics.
Like, Tinder, you can only talk to each other if you’ve mutually “liked” each other’s profiles.
And if you’re connected, and you’re really trying to get noticed, you can send a “charm” to her inbox, which lets her know you’re interested.
But wait — that actually really sucks for us pretty girls. Because when a man wants to possess you, he often pretends to be whatever you want… I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten my hopes up and ended up with “Wow, he turned out to be a giant a-hole… We are, after all, pretty much interchangeable when looked at purely from a superficial perspective.
Sarah enlightens us on a daily basis with the newest trends as (and often before) they transpire. Having traveled to over 70 countries, she earns her living writing, blogging and modeling while on the road.
And please, don’t hate me because I’m A) beautiful, or B) complaining about it (yeah, I know it may be hard)… Hence, these men see ‘hot girls’ as something to possess and show off.
So I know what I’m talking about when I say that, along with all the benefits (like having an easier time getting into nightclubs and finding casual sex, I suppose, if that’s what you’re into), there are also a lot of negatives that come along with the package of ‘being beautiful’. I can only partially blame them for this, since society hammers it into our heads with objectifying ads and misogynistic porn.
The new app, exclusive to New York City, is hitting i Tunes early next week.
