We've all been there. You're perusing your dating app of choice and suddenly you're confronted with your colleague's profile. Or your ex's. Or that guy from that awkward Nando's date three years ago. Do you give them a courtesy match? Move swiftly onwards and hope no-one brings it up? Delete your profile altogether out of shame?
But what if there was a way to avoid all the drama? Enter Pickable, the fuss-free new dating app that gives women total anonymity until they decide to make the first move. We're talking no profiles, no description, and no name. Which means no unsolicited messages or unwanted exposure. Instead, women are free to browse the guys' profiles completely invisibly until they stumble upon one that tickles their fancy.
That's when the fun really begins. To 'pick' their potential match, women simply send a photo and chat request to the object of their affection — for his eyes only. If the feeling's mutual, the man can then accept the request and get nattering.
It's not just women that benefit from Pickable's unique matchmaking set-up, though. The platform has been specially designed to cut back on small talk that leads nowhere and take dating into the real world that much faster. All men have to do is sign up with a name and a photo (with the option to add a short bio if they've got a one-liner that's just too witty not to share.)
Though there aren't any women's profiles to view, men do have the option of seeing how many women are browsing in their area, how their profile ranks regionally, and how many times it's been viewed. Other than that, it's simply a case of sitting back, relaxing and waiting to be picked — safe in the knowledge that when they are, their match will genuinely be up for getting to know them.
