Dapper Asks Male Users To Sign 'Gentleman Pledge' Of Conduct

DNA INFO - Nov 12 - Dapper, a new matchmaking app, requires men to sign a "gentleman pledge," where they commit to use the app only for "real romantic connection". Men are charged $19 for each date. A woman is charged $9. Both men and women are sent a list of matches who are available at the same time they are. Mutually attracted pairs are sent information on where and when to meet for a date, and receive a free drink. Following each date, the woman is asked if her match "displayed any bad behavior." If the man is red-flagged three times, he is kicked off the platform. The app does not have a chat function.

Why Tinder Can Drive Upside For IAC

SEEKING ALPHA - Nov 11 - Wall Street may be misunderstanding the company by not fully valuing Tinder's phenomenal growth prospects into its models. Moreover, the valuation of the company's shares are reasonable, trading for ~14 times earnings, 1.84 times sales, and also yielding a 2.1% dividend. IAC has a portfolio of more than 150 brands, which offers longs a major margin of safety. Unlike other companies, which hinge primarily on a single app, this company is spread over many internet sites across many sectors.
