Ratings and Reviews
App is mediocre at best
I’ve dated a number of women in my life now at 24. So I would consider myself to have a worthy amount of experience when it comes to that of the opposite sex, I’ve also encountered women who wouldn’t necessarily go for a guy such as myself, but have won them over in the end. Not for my looks, I’ve been told by many I’m an attractive black male and I also model. Just by my general interests being different. However, in the off chance of matching with people, you are limited due to the lack of worthy descriptions of yourself. Personal info questions such as: “do you desire children, are you looking for long term or hook up, is sexual chemistry important, do you happen to drink or smoke” etc are all but missing in this apps protocol. The only thing you can really gain from seeing a persons profile is an “about me” tab, and more often then not it’s left blank. So all you see is picture of them an how far away they are. The app also needs a reminder tab to let you know to swipe today bec many people will literally forget they have the app sometimes and will message you back a day or 2 after you sent a message (I’m guilty of this myself) Little things like this can quickly improve the apps overall usability and user-friendliness.

I met my life partner on this app
What more can I say, I was able to have interesting conversations with individuals I would likely never have encountered irl. I met the love of my life and ultimately deleted the app. Feedback I got from men though, was that apparently they’ve been having a tough time with discerning if a person was on there to meet people or boost their various online profiles. (You know which kind I’m talking about). My profile was sort of cryptic, to be fair. On occasion this prompted men to aggressively try to attain my socials. I think asking users to answer a few basic compatibility questions in their profile might offset this. The app also regularly reminded me that I had downloaded it which encouraged me to use it and respond to messages and new matches more often. I enjoyed the cute and sometimes cheesy reminders about how I was breaking hearts and to not keep my matches waiting. I don’t have any complaints really, because I met someone that I love deeply so everything feels all rosy now. I am a conventionally attractive, well read, socially conscious, 30 something - so I’ve never had trouble meeting people in real life, I merely wanted to fish from a lake or faster moving river as opposed to a small pond.
I’ve had this app for a few years now with no issues, and all of a sudden the app decides to disable my account. So I email customer service and there are supposed to get back to you with in 48 hours ( which is a lie I waited almost a week for a response!) they first responded that they would take this to the higher ups and then a few days later one responded that it was a technical error and app should be fixed now, the next rep responded that I violated their terms and was removed because of this. I then proceeded to ask what terms I violated and they responded that they couldn’t tell me due to privacy reasons ( so you cant tell me about my own account great). Horrible customer service I called in and a rep with a really heavy accent said something about having my Snapchat info on the bio and deleting my account to make a new one. ( doing that didn’t help I’m blocked so every account I make keeps being disabled ) their reps are incompetent that rep obviously didn’t know what a hold button was kept me on hold with no music. And kept giving me the run around. Their follow up is horrible and their communication between reps is as well how does one rep tell me technical issues and the other says violation get if together people. If I could give them 0 stars I would! My sc info was in my bio for years now why didn’t you flag a warning and remove the info it’s not that serious. The way this app handles people is ridiculous. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP PEOPLE!
