Slowing down dating process
On signing up, singles are asked some basic information such as name and age, and are then encouraged to input their interests and preferences on things like music, food, TV programmes, movies, and pets.
The app, which launched in beta in December 2015, takes this information and uses it to find other singles with similar interests, likes and hobbies, and users can then swipe left (no) or right (yes) on these people.
A handful of gentlemen took to Reddit to reveal exactly what they mean when they tell someone they're dating they just want to “take things slow”: I met a girl and I really liked her, but my previous relationship had escalated too quickly, gotten serious too quickly, and I realized that what I thought were real feelings were actually more like a short-term infatuation. She took our relationship fast from the get-go and acts surprise when I start to get invested. She legit did a 180° just because she thought I was more invested than her in our relationship and hasn't talked to me about it yet.– /u/genesis1v9It could be of a variety of honest reasons.
So the next time I met a girl that I really liked, I decided I was going to take things a bit slower. One, remember people have different life experiences, so just because you haven't experienced anything to make you want to take things slow, doesn't mean other people haven't.
For example, telling someone you love him or her so they will sleep with you, and then not calling them again.
You're still learning about your partner, experiences are new and fresh, and you're caught up in too much ~luuuuuvvvvv~ to care about anything else in the world.
A new app wants to slow down the online dating process by encouraging singles to message and get to know one another, before they see each other’s profile pictures.
Called Appetence, the “slow dating” app suggests matches based on mutual interests and inputted search settings.
“Fast Dating” has made many women and men tired of not feeling special.
“The conversations have become monotonous and similar, and having a ‘Match’ is no longer as exciting as the first few times.” Appetence isn’t the only app to offer a slower alternative to other swipe-based dating apps by using covered-up profile pictures.
