Overview

 

1. What is Blindfold?

If you’re looking to meet someone new or are already in a relationship, Blindfold is for you! Download the iOS app and make an account by signing in with Facebook or via email. Then you will be asked if you are looking to “Meet Someone New” or looking to “Invite a Partner” to play with. If you are looking to “Meet Someone New,” your profile will be visible to other users.

The basic “hot or not” dating apps are finally a thing of the past. Blindfold is an app designed to curate a list of potential matches just for you based on your answers to our initial Preference Deck. Once completed, the Blindfold algorithm displays possible matches with compatibility stars enabling quality, relevant, and meaningful matches. Blindfold gives you the option to connect and get to know your match in a fun and playful way by choosing from the hundreds of decks which include topics such as Date Night, Lazy Sunday, Let’s Drink!, I Am, Vices, and much more. After the completion of each deck, you will be able to see which cards you and your partner both matched on and then talk about certain topics and continue to grow the relationship one swipe at a time.

If you already have a partner in mind for the Blindfold app, you can simply invite a partner to play with and instantly have access to the Blindfold games. Your profile will be hidden from public view unless you turn on “discoverable” in Settings.

A pre-populated text message will appear with an invitation link and simply add the contacts you wish.

Connections
