Get noticed for who you are, not what you look like

We are a dating website that seeks to find matches for people that are based on more than just looks. Users can answers questions that cover a variety of subjects, such as political orientation, lifestyle preferences, moral philosophies, intimate behaviors, and so on that are then used to find potential matches. Users can answer these questions as well as specify what answers they would prefer their potential matches to give. We then recommend profiles to users based on how well their answers match up. From there, users can decide whether or not to "like" the profiles of and massage other users.

  • 4 months ago
  • A House subcommittee is investigating popular dating services such as Tinder and Bumble for allegedly allowing minors and sex offenders to use their services.
  • Bumble, Grindr, The Meet Group and the Match Group, which owns such popular services as Tinder, Match.com and OkCupid, are the current targets of the investigation by the U.S. House Oversight and Reform subcommittee on economic and consumer policy.
  • The subcommittee is seeking information on users’ ages, procedures for verifying ages, and any complaints about assaults, rape or the use of the services by minors. It is also asking for the services’ privacy policies and details on what users see when they review and agree to the policies. It also seeks information on what data is collected on people, including sexual orientation, drug use and political views.
  • Although the minimum age for using internet services is typically 13 in the U.S., dating services generally require users to be at least 18 because of concerns about sexual predators.
