My Mate Your Date
My Mate Your Date connects singles who have friends in common. By prioritising ‘social proximity’ over geographic proximity, connections are likely to be more genuine than random Tinder-like encounters. In real life, 63% of couples met through friends and My Mate Your Date is bringing this social dynamic to the online dating realm. According to Dan Joyce, the CEO:
“The surest way to meet someone you’ll click with is through your mates. In real life almost half of all couples meet directly through friends but typically you have to wait for your mate’s party on the weekend, or a wedding, to meet your friends’ friends. We’ve brought the house party online and use sophisticated technology to make it simple to meet your next great date.”
HER isn’t just somewhere you only go to find a date. They want to connect the dots in the lesbian community and they want HER to be on your home screen, where you check daily to giggle at lesbian jokes. They want you to get all your friends on it. It’s the place to go to find out what you should do tonight.
