Tired of swiping right on that cute guy’s pic, only to realize you’re probably never going to meet in person? That frustrated Craig Cole, so he created Doppler Social App, to actually encourage people to have a face-to-face meeting.
“I remember going to bars when I was younger – remember that term barhopping, and you chase girls – that was the old-school way,” the founder and CEO of Doppler Social App declares. After ending a long-term relationship, Craig knew he had to get back into the dating scene. He turned to his boys and quickly realized, “Nobody knew where to go or literally even wanted to put in the effort to go out and meet people. We went home and pulled out our phones and everyone started swiping, but it didn’t lead to offline meetings.”
The goal of Doppler Social App is to get singles to actually meet offline through their shared interests. When you join the site, you use the interactive map to tick off places you enjoy attending, or where you’ll be in the near future. “You have venues, concerts, bars, all these real-life experiences fill up on your profile,” he explains. Once you start scrolling, you can see if a person likes the same spots as you do – or if they’ll be at that concert you’re attending Friday night. It’s the opportunity to meet someone through shared interests “as opposed to having to come up with the absolutely wittiest profile in the world,” Craig says.
