Dating Adventures: An App That Tracks Singles To Within A Mile or Two

Helping single people discover each other while they are out and about is the goal of newly launched Android app "SinglesAroundMe."

To get around what the company calls "Spooky GPS dating" the location of single people is "displaced" by a mile or two, to "increase serendipity without compromising safety."

Each user selects their own comfort zone by deciding to share their exact location, keep hidden, or choose "approximate" which would show their location as much as two miles from their exact position.

The app tries to matchmake by finding suitable single people in the user's general area. Finding each other in urban settings will be very challenging. Playing hard to get has a new meaning.
