The future of dating is now and with it, Skout, a mobile meeting app is one of the apps that’s working to change the landscape. What’s happened is that as apps like Skout have begun to reflect a trend in how people want dating sites catered to them. The fact is, finding a person you like is not the end game alone, the experience that goes with it is everything. With Skout, the experience they want to create is facilitating meetings for people in comfortable environments, and combining some of the same notifications that you might find on Twitter or Facebook, Skout tries to bring a lively experience by using a similar model and bringing a friendly environment for people.
So what’s happened to the old dating site model? Well the truth is, that first of all people have become bored with it. After all, when you sign up for a dating service and just spend your free time trying to sort through a list of profiles, send a wink or a message hoping that someone sends one back, that can become a tedious business. Even if a site has a live chat feature enabled in it, perhaps you might feel turned away by pushy or rude people in there.
Also, traditional dating sites can be a bit demanding or intimidating for someone who’s a little more introverted. Some of them ask a lot of questions that they want on your profile, some of which you may feel are so intrusive that you don’t want to answer. Also, the criteria of what someone else is looking for in another person could be a little too blunt, and that sometimes may discourage someone from talking to them. At the end of the day, fun is no longer an option in the traditional dating world.
Well, dating sites have improved some for those who are interested in match-making services, and eHarmony is not the only one, other dating sites have started to copy this model and integrate it as an option in their features. Other sites have taken people who have certain interests who want to meet others who share those interests, and start narrowing down the options, making it a little easier. But still, fun has not quite entered the fray because for those who want someone who’s sweet and loving but has a bit of mystery to them, these sites just don’t quite cut it.
Skout, takes a lot of new elements of mystery, activities and travel plans and combines them into one big dating universe. People on this app can take risks, they can go on virtual journeys to meet people, or even when they go on real ones they can meet in person. Success with this app tends to have a much more satisfactory experience to go with it, and not only that Skout also raises dating safety awareness and education on its site so that people can avoid any potentially dangerous situations and follow all the site rules.
