    George Marcum on 'Dating App Breakthrough'

     
    Cyber dating may soon never be the same thanks to a new company in Dallas, Texas. The area is known for being an exploding tech start-up community which interestingly uses a lot of Crowd- Funding to launch their ventures giving participants the opportunity to share in the on-going future success of the company.

    Here's the problem with Cyber dating. Keeping shared info real and honest is sometimes a little too challenging on one's smartphone. There is a temptation to say 'over-present' oneself by using a picture or location that's not very accurate or honest. This is rather naughty, but happens all the time.
    Imagine how you feel when you've been looking forward to meeting your potential dream date and they turn out to be anything but, The result can be a big disappointment and awkward at best.

    The solution is a breakthrough 'Icon Driven App' for your smart-phone developed by researchers in Dallas, Texas. Here's how it works. You find yourself in the mood to meet up with someone new for any number of reasons. Could be business, romance or just looking to chat over coffee. You basically press the app on your phone and instantly a local map pops up showing where other subscribers are physically located right that moment thanks to GPS! You see their face and THEN decide whether or not to invite them to share an 'instant' 15 second video with you. You get to see and hear each other in real time BEFORE you decide to physically meet, keeping the dating surprises to a minimum and almost stress-free. About as close to fool-proof dating as the digital social scene will see in awhile. Your dream of a date will soon be waiting for your 'Wink'!
