So many of the dating apps currently available are based on first impressions derived from the profile pictures that the users post. For many users out there, this is rather frustrating and comes across as superficial. That is why S’More was designed to provide a very different experience. Matches are made based on personality and conversation is encouraged before looks can be revealed.
The Thought Behind This Dating App
Adam Cohen-Aslatei, the founder of S’More says that the idea for this platform was born out of a general dissatisfaction felt for the modern swipe trends many apps have. Although it’s undeniable that physical attraction plays a big part in relationships, it’s only one small part of the equation and dating shouldn’t boil down to a beauty contest. The name “S’More” stands for “something more”, and that’s precisely what the app seeks to provide. Conversations are encouraged before the profile pictures can be revealed with the goal of giving users a chance to get to know each other before looks come into play. Hopefully, this can lead to forming deeper bonds and start relationships based on more than looks.
How Matching Works
The algorithm that this app uses to match users takes into account the information about a person’s personality, values, passions, and interests. On a daily basis, each user will get recommendations of profiles that would pair well with their interests and preferences. The catch is that all the images are blurred until the matched individuals start talking to each other. The longer the chatting continues, the more the pictures unblur. Accounts have to be verified with a selfie and it’s possible to link other photo galleries, social media accounts, music playlists, and more. The number of chats that can be had at one time is limited to encourage more meaningful conversations. Although this app might not revolutionize online dating, it’s definitely a great alternative for those who are tired of appearance-based algorithms.
