So the pair agreed to meet up for coffee after the show, and Amanda brought some of her friends along, just to be safe. "I lucked out." The two are now dating exclusively, and they credit the love-the-one-you're-near philosophy of Skout with setting them up. "I was like, 'Oh we're at the same place, why not discuss the show?'" While established online dating services like e Harmony and go to painstaking lengths to match daters based on their exhaustive surveys of likes and dislikes, this new crop of GPS-based dating apps seems fixated largely on two qualities in potential mates: Proximity and convenience.Take, for example, the story of Scott Kutcher and Amanda Segal.
But a new class of GPS-enabled smartphone apps is trying to bring dating back to the pure, data-driven basics. In this new era of app-driven love, location is most important.By combining reality with dating apps, they hope to make it easier to meet someone kind of in person.Unlike Happn, Match doesn’t use location alone to connect singles.The app maintains your privacy while finding you the perfect match behind the scenes.With just a few taps, you could have dates every night of the week.”3.
