Press Release (ePRNews.com) - OKLAHOMA CITY - Jun 15, 2017 - Digital dating is on the rise, yet many people aren’t finding romance online. This time last year, the Pew Research Center reported one-third of people who used online dating never actually went on a date with someone they chatted with. Only five percent married or began a committed relationship.
Stir, a new location-based mingling app, aims to shake up the stagnant digital dating scene by helping users find nearby singles in real time and initiate conversations in real life. The app works like a singles detector, showing you who’s available at the same public location and who also wants to meet you.
“People are yearning for real chemistry,” Stir’s founder, Daniel France, said. “They’re just not getting that from online dating, because technology can’t really determine compatibility. They’re spending hours filling out long questionnaires or mindlessly swiping, but they’re rarely meeting people — or if they do, they’re realizing there isn’t a connection offline. We want to help users find love where they already spend their time.”
Stir was designed to require as little interaction from users as possible. The app pulls users’ public locations and displays profiles of nearby singles who are at the same location. Users can “Nudge” other users to join them, and they can then accept or decline.
There are no matching or messaging features. All communication is done in person to ensure users’ safety. Home locations aren’t stored, not even in the app’s private database, and users can’t search for other users. To prevent catfishing, Stir asks users to create their accounts via Facebook and regularly prompts them to upload new photos of themselves. Users can also go incognito anytime or block other users who can’t take a hint.
“We’ve all experienced the frustrations of online dating,” France said, “and we want to take people back to the basics of meeting someone and experiencing real chemistry in safe, public places they already visit. Stir provides the possibility for something great. What happens next is up to you.”
