Anybody interested in building a new kind of dating app?

The swipe action is so outdated now. My idea would be to introduce a wheel of fortune style where the user spins the wheel and whoever they land on, they can choose to ask questions to get the conversation going. Most other dating apps or sites will make you answer a ton of questions before meeting anyone so that can use some magic algorithm to match. My idea would be to let the users land on someone they're visually attracted to first and then start with conversational questions.

    Hey @vez1132, I just built a dating app myself because like you and many others, I am sick of the current dating app model. Swipe Swipe Swipe, and eventually you get a match. You start messaging back and forth, and the bam, ghosted. Back to square 1.

    Here is the app I built, StepUp. If you're interested, check it out. Lemme know if you have any feedback. Thanks!

      Hey @kennethwchen that's an awesome idea! How's the app doing so far?
