Created by a Stanford grad and former OkCupid Labs employee, Whim is a free mobile dating app that eliminates endless messaging and sends users on real-life dates instead. We've made going from phone to date delightful, seamless, and magical. Whim is all about authenticity and meeting up in real life. Spending time with someone in person is the best and only way to see if there's chemistry!

"Forget rummaging through in-depth profiles and messaging back and forth. If two people are interested in each other, they're going on a date." - The L.A. Times

"Whim skips the whole messaging shenanigans to get you on more dates more efficiently and effectively." - Examiner

"For the uncoupled among us who’d rather gaze into some pretty eyes than a busted-up iPhone" - The Boston Globe

Whim sets up actual dates for you over the next seven nights. Tell the app when you're free, browse profiles and say whom you'd like to meet. When two people say "yes" to each other, we plan a date for you right away - right down to the time and place. With Whim, you skip the endless messaging, planning, and waiting around -- and instead go from phone to date in just a few taps!

Other exclusive Whim features include:

- Scheduling dates for you based on your availability
- Suggesting a specific bar or cafe to meet, conveniently located between the two of you
- 10-second profile videos
- Easy and intuitive interface
- Manually curated user base to ensure a high-quality community
- Post-date feedback

Here’s how Whim works:

1. Real Time
Sign up for a date tonight, or any other night this week. You choose when and where on a personalized, real-time calendar.

2. Real People
Validated profiles with details like workplace, interests, and education level. Profile videos help your personality shine through.

3. Real Life
Real dates scheduled for you at vetted local hotspots with people you’ve pre-approved and want to meet.

Real date


Love the app, it actually connects people and go on real dates, good or bad right? Unlike other saying apps, whim actually sets you up for real date, the problem with other app is that you have this long texting back and forth but without actually meeting each other, wasting a lot of time. Whim takes this out of the equation.

Developer Response

Thanks so much for the positive review! We're so glad you connect with our philosophy of meeting up in real life, and hope you enjoy making some wonderful connections through the app.

Is anyone there?


Have been checking my Whim app for the past seven days or so. As of yet have not seen anyone’s picture not even mine. LOL is it still too early to have generated a crowd for this app?

I like the concept of this app


I have been using this app for awhile( about 6 months+). I had two dates so far. Recently, the app arranged me couple dates, no one contacted me before dates (No dates), I think there are a few reasons: people don't use this app anymore; people don't take this app serious anymore; personally, I'm old fashioned, I think guys should contact girls first.
I like the arrangement idea to cut all unnecessary steps before people actually meet. I think it doesn't work as it designed ideally because it's not mandatory to actually meet someone even chosen by users themselves voluntarily, which maybe approved that "free is not free/available".

The database/users amount, I don't think it's enough to charge users base on current users amount, which is kind of a dilemma of developing this app.

Another thing I really like about this app is the business information involved, I live in west side of DTLA, almost never go to the art district, my first date was arranged there. It's good for business promotion. BUT AGAIN, not all business ideas can survive in the real world.

I experienced technical problems sometimes, but I think it's the least concern of developing this app.

As much as I like it from business perspective, I don't see this app will still exist in next 12 months, 18 months maximum, unless it has fundamentally change.
