Blinka.me Matches Up People Who Meet Fleetingly

Blinka.me is the answer to fleeting meetings that don’t result in a concrete contact-info exchange. Say, for instance, you just met someone you would love to see again—an old friend, a hot potential mate, a promising new client—but you forgot to get their phone number, email, or maybe even their name. That’s where Blinka.me comes in.

Blinka.me offers users second chance encounters by matching people up through “moments”-specific times and places. You start by entering in the details of your brief meeting—anything specific you can think of, such as what the person involved said to you. Basically, if the person you’re trying to reconnect with enters the moment as well, you’ll both receive an email notification where you can then have a safe, private chat through Blinka.me to decide if you want to pursue it further.

The founder of Blinka.me sees it developing into a new language and culture. “At a bar you see the girl of your dreams but you’re too nervous ask for her number,” he says. "So instead you just say, ‘Hey, Blinka me and maybe we can catch up later’.”

This is great if both parties are aware of what Blinka.me is. But if the girl in question has never heard of it, you might just be better off remembering her name (after all, she’s the girl of your dreams!). Stats for Romance Reuniting Websites Trending: Older & Chilly
