No frenetic swiping or "game" features, just a few quality matches per day.
The app presents you with around a dozen matches a day for you to swipe yes/no on.
A few taps later, the website for tech start-up Eve informed me with only a hint of irony: "Modern dating is in crisis.
We thought there should be an app for that." It's been five years since Tinder disrupted the dating game, allowing millennials to summon potential partners like taxis and Chinese takeout. Think pieces decried a wasteland of empty promises and one-night stands.
For every swipe right, men lose points for being less selective—encouraging them to narrow their criteria from "any female with a pulse" to "women I'm really interested in."Eve cofounder Hank Dumanian is well aware that guys may bristle at the idea of being scored by an algorithm (and indeed, all the men I spoke with felt at least a little uncomfortable with the double standard). The problem with dating apps, as he sees it, is that they "treat male and female users as functional equivalents." The reality is that men not only far outnumber women (some apps have a male-female ratio as high as 70 to 30) but also behave entirely differently.
The average man will swipe right on nearly half the women he sees.
