• The Tinderisation of modern life is on the rise I arranged a coffee meet-up for Saturday at 5.30pm, which after half an hour a guy called Harpal said he was coming to.
I also followed a man called Jeff, something that means Wiith will notify me when he creates an event, and told some bloke called Youcef I’d join him for a run on tomorrow at 9pm. It’s true that the current market for community-based dating and networking is becoming increasingly saturated.
In such a male-dominated field, she found it hard to form new friendships with women.
That's the idea behind a new crop of dating websites that aim to recreate the experience of cocktail parties or a get together at a friend's apartment where you just might meet someone new.
Youcef actually approved my coming along, and as I write this very sentence has just pinged me to say ‘hey’. A fresh dating app seems to spring up every month, and friendship platforms are following suit – today, the young, mobile generation appreciates the practicality and instantaneous nature of forming relationships by scrolling through pictures and sending a few messages.
With that in mind, Wiith already has a few similar models to compete with.
Parties are always great places to meet people, but since most people don't have the opportunity or time to attend one every day, websites like Friendlylook, The Datable and let you browse your friends' friends.
The newest site Friendlylook says it engineers serendipity.
