Flikdate: The new age of video dating
Flikdate lets you live video chat with potential dates on your smartphone.
The concept of dating has definitely changed since our parents were in college. Today, rarely is it as simple as the “boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after” scenario. If you’ve seen enough lame dating websites and apps, we would like to introduce something new.
Flikdate allows to you chat with people from all over the world, all from the comfort of your smartphone. By using a live video chat, you can actually see the person you are talking to, and hopefully find that spark of love!
This is how it works: Download the *free* Flikdate app on your smartphone. That’s easy enough, right? It connects to your Facebook account, but only to verify information such as your age, education, location and basic information. This also means that everyone you find on Flikdate displays their accurate information, too!
After the initial set up and a quick, optional tutorial, you can begin Flikdating! Here is the basic rundown:
During a session, you get 90 seconds with each person. Each date is through a live video on your smartphone, so you can see and hear your Flikdate partner. You get 25 free fliks to start out, and you can buy more for $0.99 or just wait for the free refill every day. Also, you can make your experience personalized by choosing the geographical range of your dates. You can choose to chat with people from all over the world, from your continent, just around your country, or even people from only your university.
If you like the person you are Flikdating with and think they’re cute, hot, funny, or whatever you’re looking for, you can hit the “Thumbs Up” button. The person you are talking with can see if you hit this button, and likewise, you can see if someone presses it for you. On the other hand, if you feel like you don’t quite mesh with the guy and he isn’t your type, you can hit the “Thumbs Down” button. This moves you on to a new date, or you can just flik the screen to move on.
Flikdate is simple, easy to use, and extremely convenient. Take the hassle out of traditional dating and try something new! Head to the App Store and download Flikdate for free, and be sure to check out the video that shows you how to use the app and make the most of your experience. Happy Flikdating!

Are you in an affair without knowing it? Unless you’re a swinger, having sex with someone else counts as cheating. But then there’s the fuzzy area between friendship and infidelity—and chances are, your girlfriend sees those shades of gray as more black and white than you do. “Men aren’t as attuned to identifying ambiguous behaviors as cheating as women are,” says Daniel Kruger, Ph.D., a University of Michigan psychologist, who’s studied gender differences in definitions of infidelity. In other words, what you consider totally innocent could be her deal breaker.
