online dating



Good news for all the self-proclaimed geeks out there, it looks like love is in the air.

Cuddli is a dating app now available on both android and the iPhone that is targeted to geeks. One of the app's founders says people who are really into things such as star wars and superheroes don't always have the best luck on other apps because people don't always appreciate their enthusiasm.

So Cuddli allows users to put interest icons on their profile. Then when you see your matches any shared interests are highlighted so you know what you have in common. Then if you end up hitting it off with someone the app can be switched into couple’s mode. This allows you to keep chatting with each other but it doesn't let you chat with anyone else.  read more »
