For those braving the dating app scene and tired of the soul-crushing superficiality that comes along with it, the Taffy app is a potential alternative. Rather than highlighting users' images, Taffy puts chats first, only revealing images as users get to know each other through its platform.
Browsing Taffy, users initially see blurry images coupled with catchy headlines about that person. If those headlines are appealing, users can then send a message to start a chat. As couples chat with one another, the blurry pictures are slowly revealed, giving users a chance to get to know one another rather than making snap judgments based on looks alone.
The Taffy app also lets users specify the kind of relationship their looking for, from friendship to love to hookups and more.
