New Romance App Sets Up Blind Dates In Seconds
Newly single? Looking for a date tonight? Looking for a date sooner than tonight, like, after work? Internet dating site OKCupid has set up a new mobile app called CrazyBlindDate that can set you up with a date in a matter of seconds. How does it work?
Choose the time you’d like to meet, and the place, and OK Cupid sends you not one match, but four. The catch is, the faces are scrambled. Your date is literally a puzzle.
The choices are based on an algorithm of who you might get along with based on your OK Cupid profile, their proximity to you, and their availability at the time you requested.
Send the request and show up. You’re dating! That is, of course, if your date shows up.
The catch is, of course, you don’t get to actually see who that blind date is. Interesting idea but I think you’d be better off just joining us for our Red Hot Singles Mingle, January 31 at the Saranac Brewery!
