Dating apps are now one of the most popular ways for singles to connect with new people and search for love, but their success rates in actually facilitating face-to-face meetings for users are still questioned by some.
London-based dating app Rendeevoo is carrying out some of its own research into the matter, and has just published a short survey to investigate just how successful modern dating platforms really are.
The new survey is comparing the time spent online on those platforms and the time spent on face-to-face interactions, to understand how well apps perform in terms of transforming their users’ online connections into offline meetings.
To do so, Rendeevoo is asking individuals to disclose information about which apps they are currently using, and how many hours they spend using dating apps each week.
It is also gathering data on how many hours a week singles actually spend face-to-face with people that they meet on these platforms.
The app’s co-founder and managing director, George Christoforakis said: “Time is the most precious commodity, and Rendeevoo is curious to see how long it takes for the average dating app user to arrange a meeting with someone from those platforms.”
Last October, we spoke to Christoforakis to talk about Rendeevoo and its mission to revolutionise the way dating services match up singles.
During the interview, he talks about his philosophies towards online dating, the current trends surrounding on-demand dating apps, and how startups can help to push positive change in an industry controlled by the big players.
