But it also sounds like it could require a potentially large investment of time and energy, only to discover later that you’re just straight up not physically attracted to someone.
Schenk says it currently takes about 10 messages back and forth before your image is fully revealed.
You can decide who to chat up, and if your conversation progresses, the person's photo comes slowly into focus with each interaction.
Eventually a totally clear picture of who you’re talking to emerges. John Schenk, the app’s founder, told that the goal of this approach is "to put personality on a level playing field with physical appearances." Still, it's a odd not to have a face to put to a name.
Instead it only lets you match with people who share your mutual friends - and it shows you a new ‘batch’ of users every day.
