North Carolina man creates dating app where he's the only guy allowed on it
They say there's too much choice in this modern world of ours. With a million different blends of coffee and thousands of news sources vying for our consumption each and every morning, it's a miracle any of us actually end up getting out of bed on time.
And woe betide anyone who thinks online dating is going to clear up the confusing obstacle course that trying to find a suitable love interest represents.
The tyranny of choice is perhaps never more evident than in the filtered corridors of modern dating apps. You could swipe left and right for days on end without cease, each face blurring into the one before it so you're not entirely sure what you're seeing anymore.
Meet the most popular people on dating app Tinder:
But one man has simplified the whole process entirely. Aaron Smith has made a new dating app for women, who are presented with the choice of one man: himself.
The app, presumably created with tongue firmly in cheek, is called Singularity.
Smith created it with the help of a software engineer, and it's quite a sight to behold. Smith, in various different get-ups; a Santa hat, playing the guitar, holding a dog.
Referring to the more 'traditional' online dating apps, Smith told WFMY News 2, "The biggest problem with the other apps is that my face is not featured prominently”. A thought I'm sure has occurred to all of us at one point or another.
This is the incredible story of how two sets of identical twins started dating:
And Smith has quite the analogy for his feat of daring innovation;
“If life gives you lemons, you should first make lemonade.
“Then make sure no other companies can produce or distribute their own soft drinks. So the only game in town is lemonade.”
There's even a humorous advert for his creation:
So if you're in North Carolina and you're looking for a "gainfully employed" individual, then you could do a lot worse than heading over to Singularity. You may not get much choice, but you will, at the very least, put a smile on your face.
