Online dating, for better or for worse, changes completely depending upon the concept applied to it. For example, Bumble empowers women to take the initiative and talk to someone they are interested in, while Tinder looks for mutual likes. What both these services have in common is that there’s no option to date as a group and small talk before meeting up can lead to unrealistic expectations.
The Frankfurt-based startup Go Crush dating app intends to change the dating scene by enabling people to date in groups. This not only reduces the high expectations set due to small talk, but also makes it less awkward for people who are meeting up for the first time. Seeing how the startup’s idea of dating was something fresh and worthy of investing in, the ex-CEO of Elitepartner, Dr Jost Schwaner decided to become an angel investor in Go Crush.
