With V Day in View, Cupid Works on Aiming its Arrows at the Hearts of Lonely Singles

By

Have you yet to find your soul mate, partner in crime, love of your life? As the day of love known as Valentine’s Day rapidly approaches on February 14th, some people are feeling the loneliness creep up from their depths of their souls and want to find their companion any way possible.

That is why SinglesAroundMe just this week launched its new iPhone app that is touted as powering an “Approximate Location” feature that leverages maps to locate the exact coordinates of other love-lusting people in close proximity to you.

According to a recent statement from company CEO, Chris Klotz, “Our goal is to offer an experience that parallels real life and to make it as social, interactive and now safe for our millions of users around the world”.

 Now available for download from Google Play, iTunes and the Blackberry app store, this offering is not only helping to transform frowns from being upside down and connect eager people who wish to share their life with a like-minded human, but also can protect those who still believe in internal connectedness by only displaying the region the other party is in without revealing their exact home address. Users even have the option to select how much of their personal information they want to reveal if any, and can outlay their specific locale within a one to two mile radius.

"I believe our new privacy controls dramatically change the game and solve the problem that was holding back this new industry," added Klotz. "In today’s connected world, most members do not seem bothered by revealing their location, however, there is a percentage of members that have requested more control over the privacy of their location information. With this new release, we have opened the doors to a safer—and even more exciting—location-based dating experience.”

Those in search of endless love must not only think with their hearts but their heads as well. Giving a stranger such crucial knowledge as where you lay your head at night could leave you open to attack. However, turning to an app rather than meeting someone you just met through a social media platform such as Facebook or Twitter can increase safety significantly.

Some other widely popular dating apps include Gate Guru, Date Check and Skout.

  • Gate Guru allows those traveling the world to find their other half while on-the-go. It highlights where to go including bars, restaurants and even night clubs in various cities so that you have the chance to meet that perfect somebody, even if you happen to be suffering through a layover in a deserted airport due to a snowstorm.
  • Date Check brings your safety to an unparalleled level as it can actually rapidly power a background check on someone you may feel that special spark for. Aptly titled the “Sleaze Detector,” it will check for any arrests or if the person is responsible enough to own a home.
  • Skout promotes flirting, because hey everyone needs to do it from time to time eight? It is pretty similar to SinglesAroundMe due to the fact that includes a GPS system to show you who is single and down to mingle in your neighborhood.

The dating scene this days can be extremely hairy but don’t settle for someone who isn’t everything you hoped and dreamed for just to say you have somebody. Be open to new possibilities and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there as you never know what or who will come your way and forever change your life. If you are fortunate enough to have met your match already, never take it for granted and remember to tell that person how much you love them and couldn’t imagine your life without them each and every day, not just on Valentine’s Day.
