Individuals in Singapore are supposedly more concerns with people finding out who they are then getting laid. The latest dating app released in Singapore is called Blindfold and it’s very similar to Tinder, except you can’t see the persons face before swiping.
What I don’t understand about this whole concept is, if you’re not using some sort of affair or cheating dating site and you don’t want to be noticed or seen on it, then what’s the point? If you’re uncomfortable having your profile found and picture shown on the app, there’s a good chance you’re not going to get laid as much as you could.
How It Works
Here’s a rundown of how the Blindfold app works and a few reasons why I won’t use or recommend it. Once you’ve joined, you’re shown a profile of someone that could possibly be a match for you. You can decide to chat with individuals before you see what they look like. You’re able to chat via messaging with that person you choose and it requires that you both agree to reveal yourself before the pictures are unblurred. According to CEO Wendy Tse, she reporting to Techinasia that, “Many of my most beautiful female clients are sick of men who only want them for their looks,” and this to me sounds absolutely crazy. Every other dating app I’ve used has sexy female members using their best photo as a profile picture. If they weren’t trying to use their looks to attract men, then they wouldn’t be topless in a profile pic.
I’ll never use this app or recommend it..
I’ll never ever use this Blindfold dating app or recommend it for a few reasons. For starters, I have a number of dating apps that I’ve been able to get successfully hook up with women on already. While I’m always looking for more, I’m not going to try one blindfolded. Another reason I’d never use this app is that it’ s a Singapore-based app. That does nothing for me in the United States.
Lastly, does anyone remember those AOL Chatrooms? How about chatting with someone and getting the “files done” voice message when the person you’ve been chatting with sends an image. You get that image and realize you’re not talking to the hot barbie you think you are, but some gross creep (hopefully of the opposite sex) and they send the strangest picture ever? Yea, I’m not about that AOL Chatroom life. No thanks, I’ll pass. I don’t need to invest time in chatting with someone I don’t know what they look like or if I’ll even think they’re attractive enough to bang. I’ll stick to my dating sites that actually get me laid!
