‘Siren’ courting app needs to maintain ladies protected from creeps
Whereas Tinder solves a couple of of the issues ladies face with on-line courting — like being smothered with lascivious messages from anybody and everybody — there’s nonetheless a problem of privateness that it fails to deal with. That danger of not being almost as nameless whereas on the lookout for a mate as one would hope is what impressed Seattle’s Susie Lee to create Siren. What units it aside from each different courting app is that it retains a lady’s image personal till she deems it applicable to share with a potential suitor. As Seattle Occasions notes, a woman can peruse the profiles of males at their leisure and if, say, she’s into a man’s reply to questions like what their three magic-lamp needs are, she will then present him her image. The thought is to offer women the management right here and base matches on actual-world character, not a dry collection of surveys akin to eHarmony.
Entry is pretty locked down in the mean time. There are round 1,200 present customers and you may solely get in when you’re dwelling in grunge-music’s birthplace and have an iOS system. Maybe extra restrictive is that it lacks choices for anybody aside from heterosexual women and men. Lee says that regardless of the app’s talents, although, in the event you use it like some other courting service and give attention to shallower pursuits like how good-looking a mate is, you are more likely to stay sleepless in Seattle. And actually, who needs to undergo one other break-up once more anyway?
