How Fast Flirting Works
Incorporating answers from your registration, we make sure you only meet people who fit your preferences. You will be asked to choose the “type” of human you’re attracted to – on a scale of feminine to androgynous/nonbinary/genderqueer to masculine – and the age range you’d like to meet. Selecting each box along the scale of “Feminine" to “Masculine” will allow you to meet more folks on a spectrum. After each 5-minute speed-meet, you will receive a text message directing you to your next potential date/friend!
Think of this text messaging technology not as matchmaking, but more as a TAILORED experience than random, public speed dating.
At the end of each interaction, you’ll add “feedback” about that person (2nd date, friendship, or business). When two people indicate the same level of interest, we email you both contact information within 24 hours.
