There are plenty of mobile dating apps these days, but have you ever dreaded going out on a date with someone new who you met online, wondering if you’d recognize them? Have you ever gone on a date and found the other person’s grammar or hygiene habits so repulsive you want to run out the door?
We know that not all dates are disastrous, but every once in a while you need to be saved from a date that’s gone south in a digital heartbeat.
Cyber-Dating Expert friend Jennifer Kelton from Bad Online Dates has come up with a solution to help yo find your Knight in white armor and to say goodbye to the dud IRL.
Jennifer told me that she created the bod App because she feels that “there is a problem in the dating space and more people are having bad dates than having good dates.”
Sure we know that dating is a numbers game.
With the newly launched location-based bod app, you can open it up and see on a map another potential dater who might want to meet you and save the day. Jennifer calls it the Plan B to bad dates.
Jen feels that the dating industry has a responsibility to help singles make the best use of their time, money, and energy, (not to say the cost of the blow-out, new outfit, manicure, pedicure, flowers, etc.)
Here’s a Peek on How the bod Dating App Works
- Go to the App Store or Google Play (iPhone or Android), download, and log in through your email or Facebook account
- Set up your profile and turn on Date Mode to start looking for people around you to connect with in real time
- When Date Mode is on, users become discoverable and visible to other local app users, even those not currently on a bad date.
- Message matches to meet (and leave your date!)
Once a mutual interest is established, users receive a notification and now have an escape plan to get out of their date and start a new (and hopefully good) date.
How is bod different from other apps?
Other mobile dating apps, like Happn, Tinder, and Bumble, are designed to help you meet someone and go on a first date. bod App changes the dating app game by helping you get out of that first Tinder date if it goes south and offers you the opportunity to salvage your night (and your outfit) and have a better time.
Icebreakers to get your started
If you’re on the shy side and can’t figure out a good opening line, the bod App has built in icebreakers that you can send to your matches. Basically they act as your own personal digital wingman and take you past “hey.”
Some examples of icebreakers include:
- Talking in public on your phone a do or a don’t?
- How often do you see live music?
- Do you like white or red wine?
- On a plane do you like the window or an aisle seat?
- Were you a boy scout or a girl scout?
