Blender grinder dating site

Grindr, the wildly successful, male-only location-based hookup facilitator for gay, bisexual and gay-curious men, has registered 2 million users in two years.

Now, the creator of Grindr has launched a new app Blendr that replicates Grindr's template, with one key twist: it allows women to register, too.

Isn't the whole point of internet dating that you can meet someone new?

This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.

"With Blendr, we're putting 'social' into social networking.

The USP: Gives you the chance to tell your friends (rather than strangers) that you want to sleep with them.

The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.

Pros: Once you get over the slight stalker complex Happn instils on you by showing women who walked past your front door an hour ago, matching with users within a 250 meter radius is actually quite handy.

Grindr founder and CEO Joel Simkhai claims that Blendr, which launched on the i Phone and Facebook on September 8, is not about hookups, but friendships.

"We've looked at social networking and thought that it wasn't very social," Simkhai said in an interview.

Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.
