On For Friday - Social Discovery in Rochester
I started working on the website way back in 2011 while I was in graduate school in Philadelphia. I had this terrible obsession with how bad online dating sites were (maybe because I couldn't get a date ?) and I was determined to fix them.
Different Online Dating
Sites like Match, OkCupid, eHarmony and Plenty of Fish were these inefficient, early 2000s platforms that were no fun to use. Maybe Facebook had made me lazy, but I didn't want to write a bunch of paragraphs about myself. It was much easier to just share a picture.
Not to mention, I received a ton of messages from obviously fake users just so I would pay to read them. No way.
I decided online dating had to change.
