I love it, but...

I love this app, the only thing i wish is that the location wasn’t limited to only nearby. I think it would be cool to have to choice to meet people with similar interest around the world. There’s not too many apps where you can meet people around the globe that is similar to this app. It’ll be nice to choose certain countries or cities so when you do go to the country or city you already have someone as a friend, rather than having to be in the city or a nearby location to meet them first. Other than that, this app is amazing. 100% recommend! 😄

Essential App

In life, there are going to be times where you feel disconnected. It can be the result of alienation from people who were once close to you that you’ve outgrown, and you yearn to fill that void of companionship. It can stem from starting a new job or career where you look to develop new working relationships. This isolation can arise especially if you decide to relocate to a new city, state, or country. Panion is an excellent resource for overcoming the difficulties of rebuilding your social connections anew, and it is particularly essential for people starting a new life as an expat in a foreign place. This app team and its founder, Melanie Aronson, place value and priority in nurturing and fostering community, in all of its forms (they have adapted especially well to maintaining this business model in a post-COVID world). I would highly recommend Panion to anyone who is searching for new friendships, new relationships, and new beginnings.

Constant Flirting

I really like the concept of this app, since it helps me find friends with similar interests like mine. However, I have a pretty major problem with this app- or the people on it, anyway. This app is clearly only for friendships, yet I’ve had a lot of guys messaging me with flirty messages or asking me for pics of myself. It especially bothers me because I’ve stated on my profile that I was already in a relationship anyway. I even told one of the guys I’ve talked to millions of times that I was in a relationship, yet he kept flirting with me and asked me for a pic.

If this app is strictly for friendships only, I think the “no dating” rule should be enforced more, because it’s personally frustrating to have guys flirt with me without reading my profile carefully. But other than that, this app has potential.

Thanks for sharing your feedback. We are well aware that our app is being used for purposes that don't align with our brand and have just released an update that requires all profiles to be reviewed before they are accepted into the app for this very purpose. We have also added a setting where you can turn off the ability to receive unsolicited messages from people of a specific gender so that you only engage with those you choose to reach out to first. We take this problem very seriously and are continuing to monitor this type of behavior. If you see potential in what we have created we'd appreciate it if you'd reconsider your 2-star rating. Thank you! -Melanie
