Rather than being matched through similar interests or the calibre of one’s personality, superficially, it’s based on aesthetics in the form of the user’s best selection of Facebook pictures.
Three young innovators are looking to change that, with their own matchmaking creation called Do Good Dating, which would see the mutually interested parties getting to know each other by undertaking community work together.
As this is a group for singles who are interested in meeting a potential new partner, if you join this group you must accept that you may be approached by other members who are also single and looking for a potential new partner.
Harbourne says she used to matchmake for Gather and Hunt, sending different readers out on blind dates in the city and came to the realisation that it was really popular and there was massive demand.
“And then Tinder became really popular and then everyone got sick of Tinder quite quickly because A - people realised peoples’ motives are really questionable, and B - it’s not curated anymore.”She says in the beginning it was probably easier to find more people that you like.
Firstly we have at this stage (2014) about 33 marriages that we know of and about 160 couples that are still in relationships who we have introduced.
Secondly we only take on clients who we know we have people to introduce them to.
