•SparkStarter: More Real Relationships Start Here.•

“SparkStarter... humanizes the dating process and moves beyond algorithmic matching” - The New York Times

Did you know that matches recommended by friends have a 51% better chance to match and a 78% better chance to start talking?

Check out the dating app with a unique twist that's taking Minneapolis by storm!

SparkStarter is a new dating app that helps you meet people near you the old-fashioned way - through your network of friends! Meet nearby people through friends YOU know and trust to meet singles you click with and find real relationships easier.

SparkStarter connects you to people through your network of friends. Swipe for yourself or have friends swipe for you and recommend people for you. Each day matches are curated based on our unique algorithm that incorporates recommendations from people you know and trust. Get more matches when your friends recommend people each day.

How do you start a Spark?
1) Connect through Facebook (don't worry, we'll never post anything to Facebook on your behalf)
2) Each day, sift through batches of matches for you, or play matchmaker and recommend matches for friends
3) Add endorsements for your friends to enhance their profiles' credibility and compatibility
4) If the Spark is mutual, the users who are matched can take it to the next level and chat through the app

Ratings and Reviews

Finally able to help my single friends


Feels awesome to finally be able to help single friends meet others in the area. Going to spend a lot of time with their significant others, might as well have a say in the process!



I want to like this app. The first time I used it, I got zero matches. (I'm not THAT terrible looking where I wouldn't even get one match). Now I've gave it another chance and it doesn't even give me people to look through! No one exists on here.

Could be cool


Update to one star. Regular notifications for 'new matches' despite nothing new. Can't send feedback through the app's feedback section.
