Aspiring members have to pass a 48-hour peer vote to be accepted as one of the ‘beautiful people’.
Let’s face it, meeting up with a complete stranger for a first date can be awkward and hideously cringeworthy.
But it’s less so when the date itself is a total riot. The site is all about the actual dating experience and let’s you pick a match based on the date idea they’ve suggested. So, rather than nervously meeting someone for a luke warm coffee in a crowded chain, you could be trying out your culinary skills at a sushi-making masterclass or bonding over super-strong cocktails at a hipster speakeasy. The experts say: It’s a simple and unique approach to online dating which is great for those looking for fun and interesting ideas for first dates.
