The 'picture problem' with dating apps

If you've ever used a dating app before, you've probably been disappointed in one way or another.

Maybe you grew tired of endlessly swiping on pictures, only to have a couple matches that actually respond. Or maybe you didn't like being judged based on a single picture. The truth is that the whole "love at first sight" facade is just that, a facade. Only 6-11% of people actually form a romantic relationship with someone they recently met. In the real world, a successful relationship is built on much more than physical appearance. So if attractiveness is not the key to a long lasting relationship, what is?

Believe it or not, the answer is 'uniqueness.'

A study conducted at UT Austin showed that people prefer 'uniqueness' over any other trait when it comes to successful relationships. It was chosen over attractiveness, vitality, potential for success, and more... It's simple, you must stand out from the crowd. In addition, if you want people to get to know you and see how amazing you are then you must be someone other people want to spend time with. In simpler terms, you must be fun. Fun, after all, is the most attractive trait someone can have. Being unique and fun are the building blocks of a great relationship and that is precisely why we developed Savvy.

With Savvy, you are in charge of your own destiny.

In a live question & answer competition, your success is entirely dependent on your wit, charm, & personality. Superficiality no longer hampers your dating experience since you don't see anyone's pictures until the end of the game. Whether you are choosing questions, responding to the questions, or eliminating contestants, your dating experience is entirely in your hands. As a contestant, you must stand out from the competition each round to avoid elimination. With only 30 seconds to respond to each question, you simply can't fake your personality like you can in all other dating apps. Your true personality is bound to shine through, which is a great thing for both women and men.

Personality triumphs.

No one wants to waste their time matching with people who's personalities vastly differ from their own. The age old saying, 'birds of a feather flock together' is proven time and time again by countless studies when it comes to relationships and Savvy puts that as its top priority. The days of playing the 'numbers game' by mindlessly swiping for hours are coming to an end. From now on, each match you make will have a similar personality and sense of humor, the hallmarks of a fantastic relationship. Not to mention, the process will be as fun as it is rewarding.

We're excited to finally bring Savvy to market this fall and let you all experience it for yourselves! Villanova, you're up first...
