Good app

Good app and I met many special guys here but i wish if they make it more accurate with the location sometimes like when the offline their location still in the same place and sometimes u think they near you but there very far make it run even if they offline 👍🏻

Wish I could give it 5, but...

I don't know what the problem is, but this app freezes all the time. It seems to happen when it gets too busy downloading ads and can last 10-20 seconds. This is getting old REAL quick, as there are too many other free apps that actually work right. Bummer that this happens every time this app gets updated...

Solid friendly app!!

Solid interface with a modern and upbeat look. Not all morbidly black on black like other apps.
Price for Pro is fare and you get a good quality for it. Pop ups other wise at the bottoms are a bit annoying and spamy.
Diverse range of gents and more often then not they are at least willing to say hi back at ya.
