Dating in the modern world is super tough. We’ve swapped all the traditional methods of personal interaction and replaced them with fast swiping through a jammed packed catalogue of people, based on our personal attractions to a face on a screen.
And just like our over-used dating apps, London is also super fast paced, and jammed packed full of people- but it can also be as lonely as any app. With the BBC showing that, despite there being over 9 million people living and working in the capital, it’s one of the loneliest cities in Europe- with a massive 33% of the inhabitants regularly spending their weekends and evening by themselves.
So how can we combat this?
The well-known and everyday apps, like Tinder and Bumble, are notoriously known for their ‘hook-up’ ability, but what happens if you generally want to find a date that you click with on a deeper level? Or even just want to find a friend who has the same things in common as you?
Let us introduce you to Clikd – the brand new dating and friendship app that puts you in control of meeting the people you want to meet, and they are on a mission on bringing down the sorrowful loneliness stat.
Cleverly dubbed the ‘Instagram’ of the Dating world, London entrepreneurs Michael Blakeley and Rupert Coney have created an app that allows their users to physically build their own personalised dating app. Clikd takes the best parts of photo-sharing, photography and dating and meshes them into one versatile app. It’s paving the way of the future dating apps – one that combines speed and simplicity with a light touch filtration system that gives its users better matches.
Clikd uses an imaginative photo-based personality test to ensure you work with your potential match and clik on all levels. This can help save a lot of time and effort in speaking to someone, only to find out you have zero in common.
The app is super simple to use, too. When you sign up, you create your own test with 3 photo-based questions; if someone likes the look of you, they take your test. And if you like the look of them, you take theirs. If you both pass, it means you have clikd and you can start talking. A bonus being that you already have something in common, so you can say goodbye to the standard, basic one-liners as the app has already broken the ice for you.
Search “Clikd” in the app store to try it out for yourself.
