Would you try real-time audio-only dating?

Hey everyone, I am doing market fit for the app that would be limited only to the audio experience. I hypothesize that removing visuals, focusing only on audio could lead to a more meaningful connection. On the other hand, this approach would require more input from the subject itself. The main question is if the reward you can get from such a talk would justify the input needed to get it. What are your thoughts on the subject? Thanks for sharing!

I agree that audio brings real connection but image is really important for me. I wouldn't date anyone that too far away from my looks expectation. I think you can remove chating feature from your dating app.

@davidtranwd thanks for sharing! Would you invest some time into chatting with someone before you see visual of him? Or visual first is the most

@smukec I spent a lot of time on dating apps so I am not going to waste my time anymore. So I don't want to waste time to chat with someone I don't like visually either.

@davidtranwd I got it! I am still curious might do it as experiment only. I am really temped to leave visuals at least in first step to people imagination. In case you get a match-match you can take it to the next level

@smukec well, actually it is fun to talk before seeing other people. You should try it.

Its funny that you mention this. On clubhouse i am starting to see a lot of dating rooms popping up. And a few people have actually went on a few date's from these room. Like david tran said you still need a visual aspect but it can work. in reality this reminds me of the old chat lines / party lines that use to come on late at night. They were super successful back in the day.

@inumel I remember mIrc times - you didn't have any visuals then, but connections were still made. I will probably go to with experiment at least to see what's gonna happen.

Yes! Have you seen Love is Blind? Spoiler: It was terrible. Nevertheless, I believe there are humans capable of a creating a sexual attraction based on conversation, maybe enough to build a product for :) Dating apps are a terrible experience, any innovation in this area is much needed.

It's a great idea. Think about a huge variety of dating apps. All are based on images. So this is a fresh idea. I think when writing you can make up any story you want, but when you speak with someone you'll express your genuine feelings. I take as an example silver dating app. IMHO, it's great there are apps for senior people, but would't they be more popular if they had an audio option?
