Courtem Brings Chivalry To Dating Apps

CULTURE MAP - Jan 8 - Much like Tinder, users receive a bunch of profiles, and they can look through pictures and see mutual Facebook friends. From there, however, they have the option to “Pass” if there’s no interest, “Hold” on to the profile for later or “Court.” If they pick the third option, users are prompted to propose a date in 140 characters or less and schedule a time for said date. So far, Courtem has more than 1,300 users in Dallas in less than a month of activity.

Bristlr Accidentally Revolutionizing Online Dating

WASHINGTON POST - Jan 8 - Bristlr is a social network for guys with beards that will, among other things, tell you when you’re being message-spammed. The app is introducing some innovations that could add critical social context back to online dating. Aside from a copy/paste notification, the company is working on a rating feature that will let users grade the quality of their correspondents’ messages.

The Grade, Dating Grades For New York City Boroughs

PR NEWSWIRE - Jan 7 - The Grade uses a proprietary algorithm that assigns letter grades to users ranging from "A+" to "F" based on three categories: profile quality, message quality, and responsiveness. The data shows that Manhattan men and women ranked highest on average with an "A" grade driven by quality user profiles, while Bronx men and women received on average an "F" grade due to low profile scores and poor message quality. Since its launch on November 10th, The Grade has gained traction in NYC with over 750K swipes, 6K matches, and 25K messages from NYC singles.

Train Spottings: Matchmaking For New Yorkers On The Move

LA TIMES - Jan 8 - Erika Christensen started Train Spottings, a matchmaking service for New York's subway riders. "If you want to meet someone, you have to go where people are.
