“Dating apps are supposed to bring us together. So – why do we swipe alone all the time?” Anna, co-founder of BlindMate

On BlindMate you don’t swipe for your own matches – instead, your best friends find the matches for you.

How does BlindMate work?

Tell me more, tell me more
This is how BlindMate works Matches, Profiles and BlindChats

how exactly does it work?

How do you get matches?

On BlindMate, friends swipe for each other. You get a match when two cliques agree that their single friends should meet for a coffee.

It’s just like every other dating app: you swipe. The other person swipes. It’s only about looks. Only difference is that you don’t swipe. Neither does the other person. And it’s not only about looks.

Y likes M for C. A likes C for M. C and M get a Match. Simple.

How are profiles created?

You set name, age, location and images yourself. The rest is up to friends. They tell charming and fun stories about you and answer questions about you, which allows us to identify key character attributes for your profile.

You write down your name and spend hours agonising about what to put into your bio. And then you sigh as you realise that your friends have to describe you. Nice.

We apply a highly sophisticated machine learning algorithm parameterised on crowdsourced data to generate data vectors based on user generated content to derive key personality traits of their friends.

What’s a BlindChat?

Once you’ve got a match, you end up in a chat without pictures. The only info you have about each others is that your friends think you match. As you chat, images and profiles are revealed bit by bit.

Imagine you’re using a dating app to get to know people. And then this app coaxes you into actually getting to know people. How awkward!

Account-transgressing message exchanges are first initiated in a double-blind mode. As soon as our server registers the predefined threshold of message-ping-pongs, code progressively unlocks the two-dimensional digital representation of the physiognomy of the counterpart.

Advantages of BlindMate

Tell me why!

No pressure! You know the pressure to put yourself into the best light on dating apps? On BlindMate, you can lean back and let your friends handle that.

No more superficial profiles BlindMate profiles are authentic, loveable, and honest. Like friends would describe each other.

Time with your friends You know these evenings together with your friends, talking about relationship stuff and discovering new things about each other? This is what BlindMate should be!

No stupid pickup lines Imagine, your friends introduce you to somebody. You wouldn’t expect a pickup line – and probably, everybody’s pants would stay on, too.

Help your single friends Even if you’re in a relationship: on BlindMate, you can swipe for your single friends to support them. Without having your own dating profile, of course.

FAQ How much do I have to pay for BlindMate? No. In which countries can I use BlindMate? Currently only in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. If we could, we would launch in the EU, the world, and on the moon, but that’s a ton of work and servers on the moon are super expensive. We’re working on it and we’ll let you know when we’re ready to launch in other countries. How old do I have to be to use BlindMate? BlindMate is 18 - 99. So you should be an adult (or at least officially of legal age). Are there more women or men on BlindMate? We’re super-lucky to have an almost perfect balance of men and women in our community. Is BlindMate open for LGBTQ+ or is it binary only? BlindMate is for everybody, of course :D At least, this is our aspiration and if you spot something that doesn’t live up to it, we’ll embrace your feedback! I searched for fakes but didn’t find any. Why? We’re sorry. The process of adding friends and creating each other’s profile makes creating fake accounts a lot of effort. We know that fake profiles are an important part of the dating app experience and are dedicating a lot of work on making BlindMate more accessible to fake profiles. How do you make money? Right now – not at all 🤪 We’ve got a donation button in our app and these donations cover our server cost :) Right now we have neither ads nor premium features on BlindMate. For full transparency: eventually we want to build premium features that you can get to treat your friends with a few fun extra features. I don’t want to appear on a dating app. Can I still find matches for my single friend? Yes you can! We’ve built BlindMate with people like you in mind. When you sign up, your own search and dating profile will not be active by default. Only when you consciously decide that you want dates yourself, you can set up your profile and receive matches. Until then, nobody will see you on BlindMate. What do I have to do if I want dates myself? When you want to meet someone through BlindMate, you set up your account and send your personal invite-link to your friends. You enter name, age, and location, add your images, and set up who you are looking for. At this part, your friends take over, create the rest of your profile and find matches for you. And as soon as you get the first match, its your turn again. What do I have to do if I want to play cupid for a friend? If you want to find matches for friends but not for yourself, you set up a basic account and invite your single friends. As a matchmaker, you only have to enter a name so that your friends know who you are. No images, no profile info, no social security number. Once your friend has joined, you answer questions about them and find matches for them. Apart from your friend, no other person on BlindMate will see your profile. How is my profile created? When you sign up on BlindMate, you add your pictures and basic info (name, age, gender, location). Then, your friends create the rest of your profile by answering questions about you. From their answers, BlindMate identifies attributes “sportive”, “romantic” or “chaotic”. There also open questions, where your friends can write short texts about you – these stories will be the most charming and fun part of your profile. What if a friend writes bullshit on my profile? What should you know before meeting Paul?
“Paul is stupid … and he only changes his socks every other week or so.”

Yeah, that would suck. However, that wouldn’t happen, in the first place: you choose the friends who can create your profile, and you can trust them to put you in a good light. From time to time they might add a quirk, but its these quirks are that make profiles super fun. And should there ever be bullshit on your profile you can always reach out to us and we’ll remove it.
Why can’t I see my own profile? “Who doesn’t see their own reflection worries not about the graying hair” – Konfuzius
Uhm, yeah. In other words: once you see your profile, its so tempting to try and improve it. Let’s be real, isn’t it also our quirks that make us loveable? So “trust your friends”.
What type of questions do I answer about my friends? What type of guest is Alex on house parties?
arrives, gets stuffed, leaves - only there to pick up strangers - spends the entire evening doing the dishes - gets slightly drunk and debates all night long - pukes into flower pots
How sportive is Alex?
Gorilla and cheetah in one - horse - scheep - sloth - brick

BlindMate has over 200 questions. Some of them come with a number of options, others let you write your own profile. Its a motley mix of question types and answer types to keep it entertaining. Well, and then there’s the one big question: who’s the best match for your friends?
What to do if there’s a problem? You can always reach out to us directly via the support chat if you’ve got questions about the app or a problem. For all other questions about life, death, and the universe you can also reach out via the support chat, however, here we can’t promise that we’ll have all the answers. You can also reach out to team@blindmate.de if you’ve got any problems or questions.

Privacy

Your data is YOUR data

What data is this about?

Running BlindMate creates a lot of data. Some of it you entrust us with directly: profile images, answers about friends, chat messages and so on. However, whenever you use the app there's also a lot of less obvious data: for the app to work, we need to know what phone and what system version you are using. We need to keep track of dates and times to display chats in the right order. We need to record which profiles you've already seen so you don't come across them twice. And so on and so forth …

What do we do with your data?

In short: only what's essential.
Obviously, we have to store and process your profile images and answers to show your profiles and chats. All the other data we need for two purposes only: For the app to work (that's what we need to know your phone and software version for, for example), and to identify issues within the app. That's it.

Yeah, and we know that one can make a lot of money selling data. But we promise, as long as this sentence is here that's not happening. Sure, one day the day might come where we sell BlindMate to some company. In which case this text would probably disappear and a new privacy agreement would appear, starting with the headline "We care about your privacy", and nobody would read it … But while we can avoid it that's not happening :).

If you want to support us to maintain our users' privacy, please have a look at our hacker policies.
