‘The start of the post-Tinder era’: female tech entrepreneurs shake up online dating

The Guardian (06/29/2021)
  • Following the success of Bumble, a female-founded dating app that only lets women initiate contact, more women are launching dating apps.
  • Pickable, launched in 2018 by Clementine Lalande (37), lets women anonymously browse potential suitors without having to provide their own names or photos (limit online exposure).
  • The app So Syncd, created by sisters Jessica and Louella Anderson, provides matches based on Myers-Briggs personality test results.
  • Ultimately, women are creating dating apps that help women form genuine relationships and avoid men seeking casual hook-ups.
