New Dating App 'SEEN' Lets You Stalk Your Match's Previous Conversations

New Dating App 'SEEN' Lets You Stalk Your Match's Previous Conversations

A new dating app has launched that allows you to see your match's conversations and dating history with other people.

Yeah.... we have mixed feelings about this one.

SEEN is billed as the world's first 'transparent' dating app, encouraging honest relationships through its unique set of features. In other words, it's near impossible to two-time someone because your match will be able to see who else you're chatting to.

This most apps, you scroll through someone's profile and decide to 'match' if you like what you see, at which point you're connected in a private messaging function.

But that's when things get weird. On SEEN, all of the interactions you have with you match are public for all to see, including your messages, recordings of your video chats and, yes, even phone conversations.

Everything is logged for other daters to read through, watch and listen in real time.

Like I said: WEIRD.

Explaining their mission statement, the app developers said: "Our mission is to use 'transparency' to encourage a positive and fun dating experience. Our daters are confident and honest, with nothing to hide."

They call the app "the safest, most authentic and respectful dating environment".

The part dating app, part live-action rom-com aims to eliminate players and catfish culture. So there's something we can get on board with, at least.

But as for seeing our match's conversations with other people, we're dubious.

Imagine you're messaging a couple of guys at the same time; wouldn't you be overly cautious about what you say if you knew the other person was listening into the action?

CEO Mike Montgomery said: "We know that transparency in dating might seem terrifying at first, but we believe it represents a more positive and effective future of online dating. Online daters are increasingly fed up with faked up profiles and time wasters, and transparency puts an end to that."

At the very least, guys are seriously going to have to work on their chat up lines. Which can only be a good thing, right?

SEEN launched in LA in October, and it's not yet known when it will make its way to the UK.

In the meantime, we think we'll stick to Hinge.
