Bristlr is a Platform That Connects Beards and Beard-Lovers

Bristlr is a social network dedicated to connecting "those with beards to those who want to stroke beards."

Beards are having what you could call their "moment." Never has a bearded man been more in style. A good beard, coupled with a man bun (don't get me started) and a sense of humor is a winning combination. While Bristlr is not necessarily a dating service, it functions much in the same way as hook-up apps such as Tinder, in that, if two people mutually "like" each other, they can chat. However, the site explains, "Most dating apps are pretty heavy going. We shifted the focus from hook ups to a more light-hearted, warmer-in-winter kind of thing."

Whether you have a beard or not, Bristlr is open to everyone, allowing people of all ages, genders and sexual orientations to connect over a mutual appreciation of spectacular facial hair.
