STRANGER DANGER

Friendlier Dating

‘TrintMe’ app brings a new way to find a potential partner.

TrintMe is the latest dating app that allows users to “take the next step without the fear of rejection, embarrassment, or spoiling a relationship.” The app won the Big Idea Competition and has taken off. TrintMe allows users to have relationships with people they already know—way less creepy than strangers. Facebook friends are arranged and users select a “true intention” or “trint” for each person—from “romance” to “coffee.” The app then reveals the matches for one another, privately, and unmatched “trints” are deleted after 30 days. With this new type of dating app, it seems there’s a new definition to the term “friend zone.”
