It's billing itself as “Tinder Minus Marriage-Minded Daters,” and it's launching today for i OS (available for Android soon).CEO Michelle Li founded the app after she noticed many of her friends in the market for simple hookups weren’t having luck.And the great thing is, whether you prefer chatting extensively with your new crush first or a little fantasy in your play, there are diverse options to suit your every whim and desire. There’s a plethora of dating apps out there, and they all try to differentiate themselves from each other, and some manage to do that, but when it comes down to it, they all do the same thing: replicate the already terrible process of finding a date in real life.Pure’s goal is to get you laid within the hour, and if you don’t do anything dumb, you should get laid within the hour.Here’s how it works; you sign in, and create a profile that’s basically just a selfie, and after that your mission is to find someone near you who wants to hookup.To address it, the Casual X team will be manually reviewing each new profile.
You basically send out a signal that you want to go to bangville, pronto, and get to choose who you go to bangville with (among the people who want to go to bangville with you). The awesome part about Pure is that it doesn’t want anyone else to know about who you’re hooking up with; Pure encrypts every message you send in-app, son! Even your failed attempts to hookup are hush-hush: if no one responds to your post after sixty minutes, the post is deleted forever, like nothing ever happened. It’s an app that knows you hate strangers, so it recommends you date people who are friends of people you know - specifically, your Facebook friends.Although the company has initiated a doubling down on mobile, the experience of users like Riccardo might suggest another path to profitability. The almost decade-old Couchsurfing, which is available in 100,000 cities across the globe, is becoming the go-to hookup app for a certain class of young world travelers.Bloggers like Maverick Traveler will help you spot the “8 Signs of a Slutty Couch Surfer Girl” by decoding her profile, and female-centric advice site You Queen has even offered tips on “How to Use Couch Surfing as a Dating Site and Get Away with It.” Meanwhile, a site called Couch Bangs.com, which declares that “Couchsurfing isn’t just for Couchsurfing,” offers a forum for proud couch-cuddlers to share their experiences via short posts with titles like “French Girl in Istanbul” and “Brazilian Girl in New York.” Couch Surfing’s Community Guidelines explicitly warn against contacting other members for dating, noting, “we will consider this harassment” — albeit without stipulating what the penalties are for violating this rule., Tinder is the harbinger of today's hookup-fuelled "dating apocalypse." But the truth of the matter is, hooking up isn't anything new (and may in fact be hardwired into our genetics).And as for Tinder, sure, it can be used for swiftly finding a one-night stand, but there are plenty of other apps that are better suited for that task.If your life is too busy to squeeze in the time-consuming intricacies of a longer-term relationship, or you're just looking for a little low-stakes fun, you need a quick, surefire way to find a quality fling.
