New dating site tells you exactly why you’ll be alone forever
If you’re a one-and-done online dater, perpetually stuck in the awkward phase, a candid look at how people judge you might actually help.
No one really wants to know how they’re perceived by strangers. Even if you say you do, you don’t. But if you’re a one-and-done online dater, perpetually stuck in the awkward phase, a candid look at how people judge you might actually help.
BetaDater, developed by an engineer and an economist, is an online program that sets you up on short dates, then sends you honest, anonymous feedback afterward.
It’s easy. Go on three half-hour dates and get three pieces of feedback per person. Find out why you will be alone and single forever.
Or maybe both parties like each other. BetaDater will set up a second rendezvous.
In the end, your data is collected and put into a data report and presented to you. The report:
A) compares your self-perception to that of your dates’,
B) reveals what areas you may be overestimating or even underestimating the quality of your first impression, and
C) gives you the data you need to ask “do people see me as I see myself?”
Probably, the answer there is no. Not even a little.
