Revolutionary New Dating App Happn

You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger

The setting: a quaint book shop.
The story: You cross eyes with a tall dark stranger in the fiction aisle. That’s it, you know that person is the love of your life and your life with him flashes before your eyes. You’re already thinking up names for your perfect children, but when you open your eyes he’s gone. You’ll probably never meet again. You flip through Tinder desperately hoping to find him, imagining your deliciously romantic reunion.

The reality of this situation is that you’ll probably never meet that tall dark stranger again, unless you have the new dating app Happn. Happn was developed by three French men who were sick of Tinder, and with it tall dark strangers will be strangers no longer. With Happn, when you cross paths with someone, be it attractive person on the bus or the waitress that served you a coffee and croissant, their profile will appear on our screen. No more missed opportunities and regrets.

It works along the same lines as Tinder, so you can chat when you match with someone, but there is a major difference: if you don’t match you can pay to chat with someone.  So that creepy guy that winked at you could potentially pay Happn to be able to chat to you. However with this sort of app security is key, otherwise any stalker could potentially track you down. Happn assures its users that their location is not stored on any database and other users will only be able to see it  when you cross paths. You can also reject people without their knowledge; you will simply never cross paths with them on Happn again. 

Currently the app does not have as many users as Tinder, but Happn is planning to launch in all major European cities. At the moment it has about 10,000 users in London, but that number is bound to keep growing. One slight advantage this particular app has over Tinder is that you won't get any bad surprises. If you've crossed paths with the person chatting to you, chances are you've seen what they look like in real life, so when you do meet up you're sure there pictures match up with what they actually look like. However, the more people that get the app, and especially in big cities, the more people will appear on your feed and less likely you will actually have shared a smile before chatting.

This app seems perfect for shy people who wouldn't usually have the guts to go talk to someone they noticed in the street. The app creates a safe place for people to interact without having the pressure of walking up to them in the street and potentially getting rejected face to face. Meeting that tall dark stranger has never been easier.
