Dating match finder

A new generation of apps is matching people who are looking for friendship, not romance, with features that wouldn't look out of place on Tinder or OKCupid. VINA, Monarq and Wiith connect people with similar views and lifestyles.

Niche apps that focus on demographic factors like religion, gender, or lifestyle are on the rise and trending heavily in certain parts of the country.

We expected to see wide areas of Tinder country, where swiping right is part of the single life.

“We’re a lot more data-driven,” Olivia June Poole, co-founder and CEO of Hey! “We’re really focused on understanding you holistically as a person, as opposed to it being a game of ‘hot or not.’” Hey! Users answer questions about their interests, personality and goals, post a photo, and the apps match them up for a coffee date, museum outing or whatever other activity they may be into. It lets people create events (for example, brunch or cocktails), invite other users to join, and then accept or reject those who show interest.

Our goal is to match all travel lovers who wish to share the sites of the world with someone special.
