Friends recommend dating
“My wife and I actually later set up my friend with her sister, so he’s now my brother-in-law.
It’s really cool how it worked out.” Spark Starter has all the traditional features of a dating app — you swipe through compatible singles and start communicating when you spark with someone in a mutual match.
The Short Version: The irony of social media is that a person can have hundreds of friends and followers online and yet not be able to find a date in the real world. Launched in 2015, this dynamic matchmaking app turns your social network into your wingman and removes the guesswork from swiping for a blind date.
Based in Minneapolis, Spark Starter operates on the premise that singles connect more authentically when they meet through someone they know and trust.
My college roommate met my twin brother in our sophomore year and fell in love with him. Ever since, she has been eager to return the favor and fix me up with anyone she can find in her Facebook friends.
A few weeks after her engagement, my soon-to-be sister-in-law showed me some pictures of a nerdy guy she worked with and asked if I thought he was cute. Lo and behold, he was sitting at my table at her wedding reception.
That intuitive dating truth inspired Spark Starter, a matchmaking dating app, to launch in Minneapolis in 2015.
With such an ingenious and engaging interface, Spark Starter helps online daters make a long-term match that meets with their friends’ approval.
The algorithm relies primarily on personal endorsements to recommend matches between friends of friends.
Anyone can sign up for free and find dates for themselves or suggest dates for their friends.
Whether you’re looking for dates for yourself or for someone you know, Spark Starter offers a friendly platform to build natural connections.
Growing steadily in Minnesota, the free app has over 50,000 downloads and expects to expand into more cities in the coming years. “Your friends know you better than a computer ever could.” Every time a mutual friend makes a successful match, it’s a great experience for everyone involved, and Spark Starter makes building those connections that much easier.
It’s a fun and effective way to bring people together for romance.
