Thursday has announced its dating app will be going live on 13th May, with over 100,000 exclusive members already registered. It will initially launch in London and New York City, with Glasgow, Dublin, and Cardiff set to follow soon after.
The new platform will only go live only on Thursdays and includes features where all chats are wiped at the end of the day, beginning afresh the following week.
Creators have claimed that the app already has approximately 110,000 members signed up and primed for the launch. The platform works where users upload five images, and answer questions to describe parts of their lives, such as personality, traits, and ideal dates.
Users can then also upload stories, and make up to ten matches per week. Matches are made based on location, suitability, and immediate availability to meet.
Co-founders George Rawlings and Matt McNeill Love, told the Daily Mail: “Getting a match isn’t exciting anymore because of the time and effort involved in sparking a decent conversation which actually results in a date. People are all on different agendas and things fizzle out quickly.
“Maintaining an active dating app profile has effectively become an admin task and there’s nothing exciting or romantic about it. On Thursday, everyone you see on the app is actually free to date that day.”
They believe that by limiting the amount of time spent on the app will create a community where everyone is proactive and looking to meet in-person as soon as possible.
