Right stuff dating
The Date: I found out about the app from my roommate, who had a friend who knew the founder, so we accidentally ended up going out with the same guy, since the app was pretty new at the time and we were both located close to this person (obviously, since we lived in the SAME APARTMENT), so that was funny, if not ultimately successful. Gabby had a different take: “The user experience isn’t bad, but a little overwhelming.

The Date: I’ve had quite a few bad dates, but one of the worst began on a high note. I’m old-school, and I love it when they aren’t afraid to be old-school too. After pulling my hand away a few times and a few back-and-forth rebuttals, we finally decide on an overrated café in Santa Monica.
So this date starts by him calling and saying he’s going to pick me up and take me out (YAS, finally a man with a plan). I give him detailed directions on how to find me, he gets lost, and Until I find my hand suddenly being rubbed against his face—why, I do not know. He insists on hanging out longer after eating, but I make him walk back to the car.
I love that the only one who can start conversations is the girl.
It makes it easier to avoid the weirdos, and it makes me step up my game.
Also, there’s a feature in the app that allows you to match with friends.
The Nuts and Bolts: Instead of having just a gallery of images, the app prompts you to choose a theme song to play during your photo slideshow.
You can tell a lot about a person by the images they choose, but even more by the one song they have them coincide with!
