The new matchmaking dating app Once is making quite a stir, with its more old-fashioned take on romance. By giving you only one match a day and having actual human matchmakers doing to matchmaking, we're moving away from the lightening-fast, algorithm-laden dating that has become so ubiquitous in the 21st century. And it's definitely piqued a lot of interested. I've seen ads for it everywhere, and when I mentioned to my roommate I was getting it, she immediately said she's been meaning to download it. Before I even opened it I knew that, as with other dating apps with limited matches, one match a day has it's pros and cons.
ONCE Dating App Review
Once for Android - APK Download
The app, called Once, has updated its service to include a ranking of the app user's attractiveness. The number rating, which ranges from one to five seemingly based on a user's physical appearance, is said to be a tool to help the user be realistic about who they could potentially match with. This may sound extreme, but it is a feature already used by numerous popular dating apps, just not publicly. Dating apps have a tendency to score users based on their performance and appearance in order to better form app algorithms. The surprising decision to make the numbers public is just a move that Once sees as gifted information for the user's guidance.
This New Dating App Uses Real Matchmakers
Once is an online dating platform based in Switzerland that was launched in October Founded by Jean Meyer and his colleagues, it was introduced as the "slow dating app" that works by providing you only one single match per day. They call this "personalised matchmaking" as they believe that quality is a better way of finding your match versus quantity. Their personalised matchmaking does not involve a machine or a system that does the matching.
Unlike most dating apps which encourage you to swipe left or right very quickly, Once is a slow dating app which brings magic to the online dating world. Most dating apps are just a waste of time. But Once is different. I really like the full attention that I have each day. It has the potential to become a bigger dating app than Tinder because people on Tinder are the worst — the lowest quality daters, according to my experience.
