Lantern - Entertainment Dating
Best of dating. Best of entertainment.

Our goal is to foster an inclusive, welcoming community, where opinions and ideals are not different, but rather part of the spectrum of life. We specially formulate questions to avoid clash topics like politics, religion, and hatred, etc. Additionally we work with a review panel from various ethnic and religious backgrounds to review content on the platform and ensure a safe, comfortable experience.

Abusive users are reported by our community and swiftly removed. Our filters aim to ensure nudity and hate symbols are quickly flagged and taken down.

We authenticate users by only allowing Apple ID logins, to help ensure a safe experience. We continue to develop sophisticated methods to filter out non-genuine accounts. (Also if your date is mean, tell us and we’ll beat them up).

We are a platform of inclusivity. Someone for everyone. Those who subscribe to hate, bigotry, racism or judgement are not welcome.


We will never sell user data nor share your answers with third party providers. Users can answer questions knowing their data is securely stored and encoded on servers that allow us to analyze data internally in a safe setting. We review data for the purpose of providing better matches and relevant topics for users to continue their self exploration journey. We will never sell your personal data to 3rd parties.

Great Idea

This app is a great take on modern dating - instead of just showing you pictures of people and their auto-bios, you’re presented with 4 people who chose similar answers to various prompts. This encourages you to actually choose someone, since the “none” option is a less exciting choice (and has a smaller click box)

I foresee a lot of people actually starting conversations with others about their choices as long as your “choice” chooses you back

If I could change something, I would reword some answer choices like change “fix an embarrassing thing I did” to “fix a mistake I made” or change “live quietly in the past” to “quietly visit the past”

Great app guys!

Thanks so much! We love to hear people enjoying the app. We will talk to our writers about shortening some of the answers as you mention and we are always looking for contributors if you want to write for us please email hello@lanterndating.com

Has potential

This app seems super new so I wasn’t expecting much in terms of matches. When I opened it up to create my account the first question asked was “which telletubbie would I murder.” Kind of off putting that that’s the first thing I see when I open the app and not really knowing what it’s about. I wish it would have let the time travel question be my first answer after letting me put in my picture. The app itself runs slow and is glitchy. Questions do not load like they should and answer boxes disappear from the screen. Also, there was nowhere to add an orientation that I could see. Lastly, when I answered my first question it said it would find me others who answered like me but then the screen went black and nothing happened. That’s as far as I got really. I can only assume there just isn’t enough users in my area yet and it can’t find anyone to pair with. I will try to come back to this when the app has improved and there are more users because the premise is very interesting I’d love to get to use it.

Developer Response ,

First off, thank you for taking the time to try the app and write this. This is some of the best feedback we've received as we adjust to give the best experience to our users.
1) We are changing the order of the opening questions taking yours and other peoples suggestions into account. The time travel one is a great suggestion and a fan favorite.
2) Thank you for reporting the glitches we are investigating. As we add users we find issues we didn't encounter before.
3) You should have been able to see other users if you email us hello@lanterndating.com we'd be grateful to troubleshoot and thank you for your time.

Finally, we are so excited you found the premise compelling enough to want to come back! We are excited to add more content and refinements to ensure a stellar experience for everyone. Please get in touch with us thank you for your time!

The death of “hey what’s up”

I love the concept that instead of just swiping left or right on someone’s looks, that you’re matched based on fun question prompts! Then, the question prompts are saved in the chat to start your conversation.

Say no to bad conversations and the walls and walls of hey what’s ups. We deserve better and lantern provides a light at the end of a dark tunnel filled with boring conversation.
