Dating, Not Texting

Dating, Not Texting

Created by a former Product GM from OkCupid Labs and backed by 500 Startups, Whim is a dating app that eliminates endless messaging and sends users on real-life dates instead. Try it on the App Store (downloadwhim.com).

Whim completely removes the frustration of aimless texting that characterizes existing dating apps, and replaces it with an experience that is seamless. Simply open the app to indicate when you're free and who you like. We then figure out the time, the place, and the person you’re going to meet, so that you can be out on a real-life date a few hours later - without all the work and buildup.

Our revenue model is freemium. It's free to download the app and go on dates; premium subscribers get access to extra features. Our early marketing strategy primarily focuses on earned media, in-app sharing incentives, and word-of-mouth.

We launched in public beta to SF and NYC in fall 2015 and nationally in fall 2016.
