Dating app Lovoo wants you to do things differently from the well-known judge-and-swipe method. Its location-based approach doesn’t rely solely on quick matches. Instead, you can go beyond the surface and browse other users’ profiles, then send an icebreaker message whether or not you’ve matched to see if the two of you have chemistry.
Crucially, instead of pictures, Lovoo makes the most of video: a streaming function allows you to upload snappy clips that give a far better sense of the person behind the profile.
Moreover, you can surf through a newsfeed, which is ranked by popular videos – it’s a bit like standing in a bar that’s chock-a-block with fun, chatty single people who are ready to mingle digitally. Make sure to star your favourites so you’ll get an update when they start streaming live. With a premium subscription, you’ll enjoy various goodies – such as your profile being pushed to the top of other people’s feeds, or receiving cherry-picked profiles assigned to you based on shared interests and flirt styles, for a higher potential of getting a match that results in a deep connection.
