Welcome to byChance™, quite possibly the most useful app you will need to find that special person. byChance is unique and uses GPS to locate and introduce you to nearby singles, including people that you crossed paths with as you go about your day.

As part of the SinglesAroundMe™ network, byChance benefits from over 200,000 new singles every month. We pioneered mobile dating on a smart phone developing the world's first, and today one of the best social discovery mobile dating apps used by millions of people around the world.

You can meet people within your vicinity and up to 125 miles (200km) away anywhere in the world. If you happen to cross paths with a member they will be displayed in your byChance™ feed allowing you to serendipitously connect.

Make sure to “Like” people that interest you and message people to show your personality, which gives you a far greater chance of connecting and receiving a “Mutual Like” back. This gives you a second chance to make a first impression!

Update review: now I cannot even get on the app and check out if I have any responses. Bye!

I thought you're suppose to meet people in your area. The ones I'm interested in are out of the country which I had enough bad experiences in my life to last a long time even though it was only one, but that's enough for me. I'm over 50 years old now, missed most of my life, even if I wanted kids, I'd need to find a mate at least age 36 or younger, but who would want to be with a man in his 50's. Another thing there's people posting nude pictures of themselves which I thought they couldn't do. Bye!!
