Met the love of my life on Happn

I met my best friend and love of my life on Happn a little over 2 years ago. We crossed paths 60+ times and I thought dang, this guy must be my neighbor but turns out he lived a few miles from where I did and worked. Once we connected and started talking he even saw me crossing the street with my boss one afternoon near my work before we even met. That's fate and we found out later that we crossed paths our entire lifes including during childhood, across states, and concerts, mutual interest events, and more but we kept missing each other. Without Happn we might not have ever met. No app is perfect for finding love, there is a bit of magic to it all but I loved the initial appeal that it was a more natural way of meeting the person you are supposed to be with. You could have crossed paths with the one seconds before or after them a hundred times and would have never know. This just gave us the visibility we needed, a nudge. Thank you! Forever grateful for whoever came up with this. I'd like to think my story is what you were trying to create with this app. Well done!

I don’t understand

I like the concept of this app, shortlist is cool, but I have weird problems with it that don’t make any sense. I’ve had a few likes for months and when I go to the first double arrow thing to show people to match with It will show me one or two people and then say no one is in site then the next day it will show a couple more people and then say no one in sight. It now shows I have 4 likes but it’s showing no one in sight.. why doesn’t it show the profiles of the people that liked me so we can potentially match? I’ve only ever matched with two people who were both scam Snapchat bots and I’ve been on this app for around 2 years with the same results. I know I’m not the best looking but on Badoo, Tinder, and other platforms I make matches and actually talk with people but on happn that never happens because it won’t show the profiles of people who like you??

This app is based on a good idea, but in execution it used to be mediocre and with recent changes it’s much worse. Any dating app that’s serious about making quality connections should offer filters, like a woman choosing to only see men taller than her in her feed, and so on. There aren’t any features like this, and now you can’t even see all of the people you’ve crossed paths with unless you swipe left or right on the last one near you. If I walked by someone this morning and someone in the afternoon but don’t log in until the evening, I won’t get to see the morning one unless I swipe on the afternoon one first, which encourages half-hearted decisions, unintentional matches, etc. It means you have to waste a lot of time on this app to see who you’ve crossed paths with. What’s worse is the Crushtime game, which is still suggesting women from half way across the country that I crossed paths with a year ago or more. It shows you thumbnails of 4 people at a time and you guess which one liked you by clicking them, but that auto likes their profile, so by guessing you might get matched with someone you’re not interested in, who isn’t anywhere near your area.

Developer Response ,

Hello The_blue_shoe,
have you checked out our Map yet? It is the little globe that is at the bottom of the main interface.
It allows you to see all the people you have crossed paths with according to each crossing location. Given your feedback, I think this feature should meet your expectations.
See you soon on happn!
