Shoot Your Shot
And this is the dating app to look out for. It is particularly interesting due to the story of its evolution. Dwayne Foreman, founder of this app, had long noticed something among his friends and acquaintances right from college days. Many of the guys would develop a crush on a girl but wouldn’t know how to come out clean before their love interest.
This is usually due to fear of rejection or discrimination based on one bias or another. Girls had a hard time letting men know how they feel too as society has largely made it look like men always have to initiate things.
He had acted as a middle man between lovers as he was really gifted with words, and basically knew how to get along with people, particularly women who many of his acquaintances may be interested in dating. He had earlier set up an online platform where people would send messages to their crush through him for a little fee. Seeing the potential in that, Dwayne took things one step further by creating a dating app that will be launching soon.
The app allows you to aim shots at your love interest without fear of being judged unfairly as it promotes the idea of interest-based matching over background-based matching. Let’s see what the full package looks like when it is launched.
