Are you a bit bored of all the old dating apps? Sick of talking to a guy for days on end, only for the conversation to trail off... just me?
A new platform, Thursday, is seeking to solve that age-old dating dilemma. The idea (as you might have guessed from the name) is that the app is only functional on one day of the week - a Thursday - and you have just 24 hours to meet someone and get an IRL date in the diary before it stops working for another six days.
Hoping to cut out that awkward, lingering chit chat and push people to jump straight into the dating pool, the app is launching in London and New York from May 13th, with plans to roll out in other cities including Dublin, Cardiff and Glasgow and Liverpool in the next few weeks.
The idea of the app, the creators say, is to "get you off tech" - especially at a time when we're realising our mental health is so linked to technology use, and a fatigue when it comes to staring at screens.
It comes to life at one minute past midnight every Thursday morning and powers off at 11:59pm, deleting all your chats along with it - which means you have to act fast to make your match worth it.
"Thursday cuts out the crap," a description reads. "Meaning less time making boring small talk.
"It's all about getting out and meeting people and making Thursday the most exciting day of the week to be single, every week".
Like your standard dating app format, you'll be asked to upload pictures and answer some prompts about yourself when you download the app.
However, users will also have the opportunity to upload 'stories', which expire with the matches after 24 hours.
Potential matches are shown to users based on rough location - because let's be honest, if you're going on an impromptu Thursday night cocktail date, you need to be nearby.
And the app is encouraging users only to log on if they are free that evening, to prevent unnecessary swiping and ensure that every match leads to the possibility of a date.
To reflect this, users can only match with up to 10 people a day, so you'd better choose wisely, and hope that one of these individuals is up for it!
Other cities including Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin are also going to be launching in the coming months, so Thursday really will become the new day to date.
If you want to jump in the dating pool twice in one week, there will also be a VIP option, where you can pay a monthly fee to add Saturday dates into the equation, too.
Being a VIP will also increase your visibility on the app 60 fold and allow you to send unlimited likes.
The app has been building momentum for some time, with more than 110,000 users already signed up.
Anyone else loving a dating app which pretty much guarantees a date, without the endless swiping? Sign us up!
