Our story

We are two Melbourne guys with a huge ambition to change the face of social media. It seems all relationship sites/apps rely on the superficiality of physical appearance, and we think that's wrong! 

In 2014 we had a beta version built, and due to some unforeseen circumstances with development, we had to start from scratch.


the attention we received in the short time the app was on iTunes was enough to make us keep going!
