Let 2016 be the year you find someone special with Once — here are five reasons you should download this clever little app right now.
1. One match per day
Dating is overwhelming enough without a constant stream of options. Once delivers you just one carefully-chosen match per day. Say goodbye to endless small talk and hello to one handpicked person.
2. Dating with a human touch
Algorithms are all well and good, but are they enough to figure out your ideal other half? Once think not, which is why they have a team of real human matchmakers on the case to find your someone special.
3. Swap 'matching' for messaging
Clicking or swiping does not a meaningful match make. Instead, Once connects you with someone once you've actually had a conversation, bringing online dating much closer to the offline version.
4. Improve your chances
Proving that quality trumps quantity yet again, Once boasts an enviable 62% connection rate. So you don't have to wade through an endless barrage of likes, nudges, winks and whatnots for dating success.
5. Preserve your privacy
That cringe moment where you match with a Facebook friend? Gone! Once screens profiles to make sure you don't get seen by old school friends, distant acquaintances or work colleagues. Phew.
