How much does it suck when the person you match with looks nothing like their pictures?
A lot, right?
That’s why we developed Filter Off, a dating app that allows users to participate in a facetime-style 60-second chat. There’s no messaging or swiping!https://www.youtube.com/embed/vqJlkrFYWYg
We can all agree that we are on dating apps to go on dates. Filter Off the first fully functional video dating app where you can go on real dates every night.
There are a few issues with existing dating apps.
1. Swiping on Dating Apps
Today almost every dating app has some element of swiping. However, with the more apps that are on your phone, has it actually led to more dates? In our experience, the answer is no. It’s just led to more time on dating apps and less time dating or doing other important things with your life.
It’s not uncommon for the average user to spend more than 10 hours a week swiping.
2. How to Avoid Being Catfished?
You hear horrible stories of someone who goes on a date thinking they look a certain way but only to realize they look nothing like their profile photo. Filter Off has eliminated any sort of catfishing by literally taking the “filter off”. Every evening you receive a notification that your matches are starting. If you accept the prompt you will go live on video and see someone face to face. Almost like a traditional date. There are no filters. there is no hiding behind your profile. You ACTUALLY see what they look like for once. So, if someone asks you “How do I stop being catfished?” You now know the answer. But if you continue to use other apps, stop catfishing regardless. You aren’t doing anyone any favors.https://giphy.com/embed/KupdfnqWwV7J6
3. Not Vibing on The Date
It’s pretty annoying to do your makeup, pick out the perfect dress, take the subway, get to the date and soon realize you have no sort of connection with the guy sitting across from you. So you awkwardly text your friend when you use the bathroom to call you in 5 minutes to tell you it’s some sort of an emergency. You get the point. Preparing for a date is time consuming. With an all video dating app, you no longer need to hop that you and your date vibe, you’ll see for yourself from the comfort of your home.https://giphy.com/embed/8gIuKzthgPxE7AKuVz
4. Dating Apps Can Break the Bank
As an avid dating app user, it’s so annoying to download an app, try to connect with someone, but only to be forced to pay to connect. Some companies will do that to make you feel like you have the perfect man or woman waiting for you. We promise that it will always be free to connect with other users. We will never try to scam you, but rather think of new innovative ways to continue to help you go on dates and meet someone special without breaking the bank.
5. Messaging Can Get Out of Control
We totally removed messaging. Yes, you heard us right. At the end of your video chat you have the option to give a thumbs up or thumbs down. If you both give a thumbs up, you are entered into a match. At that point you can either record a video message or video call your match.
6. Dating Safety
Safety is a top priority of Filter Off. If at any point of the chat you feel uncomfortable you can “X” out before the time runs out. If your date does something inappropriate you can report them and we will take swift action.
7. Lack of Dates
The goal that by using Filter Off is that you can go on more dates spending a lot less time than you had previously, We will connect you with up to 3 dates each night through live video.
8. Dating Apps for Serious Relationships
We want Filter Off to be known as a serious relationship dating app. That’s not to say you can’t look for something casual, but when it is all video and no texting, our guess is that you won’t be so upfront saying you’re just looking for a hook-up. If you’re that’s totally okay too!
We built Filter Off because we weren’t that pleased with the dating app landscape. Our hope is that we have developed the best dating app on the market. We are excited to announce that Filter Off will first be available in NYC and then in Los Angeles. Once you join the app, you will immediately be placed on the waitlist. More cities and other countries will be coming soon.
