Find Love Based On Personality, Not Looks

Posted: Updated:

Looking for love? Someone you can connect with in a meaningful way? Well... there's an app for that! Of course there is...

So listen up single folks- its called Twine and the whole point is to blur out its users faces so no one really knows what the other people look like right away. You might be thinking... what's the point? How are you supposed to know if you're interested in someone when you can't even see their face? Well... that's exactly the point. You're supposed to like someone and connect with them, based on their personality, not their looks. I know what a profound idea... but hang on let me explain.

Twine connects users with up to four matches every day based on proximity and interests. All the information is pulled from the users' Facebook profiles. And because pictures are blurred, it almost makes it easier to zero in on someone who you feel you can connect with on a mental and emotional level.

So here's how it works, after you chat for awhile on the app, you can opt to show your picture and even first name. Then if the other person agrees, information and pictures are exchanged. According to Rohit Singal. the founder of the app, users usually reveal themselves after exchanging about 60 messages.

It's no secret shallow connections don't last for long.

We've all had those experiences, where we meet someone who we are extremely attracted to right away, but once they open their mouth and start talking, all of the sudden they stop looking so good. Sometimes the more you get to know someone, the less you want to know about them. And of course the same works the other way around, sometimes the ones you aren't attracted to physically turn out to be the most interesting. Not to mention all of the sudden they start to look really good!

So if you're single and ready to mingle, I guess it wont hurt to try it out, after all what's the harm in giving meaningful online dating a shot? Let me know what you think and if it works!
