Okcupid dating app russian dating site for men
You can’t contact your prospective date until an hour beforehand, when the app lets you message back and forth.
A few hours prior to our “date”, a mutual friend recognized me from my scrambled photo. Three margaritas later, I was thoroughly enjoying myself, and I learned all about Bobby’s startup. Ok Cupid may address some of my initial concerns over time.
Not ideal if you’re in the startup world and want to expand your horizons. To celebrate the launch, Ok Cupid went dark for a day, turning all of its profile photos black, so users would “have to make their dating decisions based on words and wits rather than abs and, well, other body parts,” the company said in a statement.
In an interview with ABC7 (see below), Yagan claimed the app has already been used “hundreds of times.” It’s a nice idea in theory, but when Ok Cupid introduced a similar blind dating service in 2007, it was a complete bomb.
Bobby — aka Robert Leshner, the cofounder of Internet privacy company Safe Shepherd — took it like a pro.
He’s startup guy, and is wise to the ways of the tech press.
