How it all started
Our story begins all the way back in the distant year of 2003 when we laid down our roots as one of the first free online dating sites in a world of subscriptions. As a scrappy start-up that took off in beautiful Vancouver, BC, we’ve never forgotten where we came from and why we’re here in the first place. We believe that building a community where people feel free to be themselves helps create the most meaningful connections. Every single day since we started this crazy journey, we’ve thought about nothing but helping people find their blanket thief, Ikea sherpa, personal spider hunter… you get the point.
With all that’s changed in the world of dating since we stepped onto the scene, getting to know someone can feel more like a chore or a part-time job and less like an adventure. We see the pressure for the perfect bathroom selfie or capturing that effortless pose on the edge of a cliff, but we’ve never been about make-believe or a one-size-fits-all approach to dating. Pretending to fit into this filtered world has never been our style.
We match our members based on the things that ultimately make for real, long-lasting love. That’s why we were the first dating app to ditch face filters. We want people to feel that they can just be themselves...and well, just be. No pressure, just real connections.
Every day we keep on building this community of real people who are pumped to get out there and explore life with that special someone they just haven’t met yet.
