"[Siren] is unlike any other dating app, and feels refreshing. It puts people’s personalities on display rather than just their profile pictures." - Refinery29
"But [with] such a grand variety of dating apps to choose from — where do you even begin?"
Heyward tried no fewer than 28 dating apps for this article and documented her experience with each. (Can you imagine how exhausted with humanity you might feel after trying 28 dating apps?!) But we're so glad she did, because her enthusiasm for Siren beautifully illustrates how far we stand apart from the pack:
Siren “fights the swipe,” focusing on values such as comfort, respect, and privacy. And it’s unlike other dating app I’ve encountered. For starters, the gender selection gave “non-binary” as an option. And then, since the app is all about not objectifying its users, it focuses on your thoughts and opinions instead.
Each day, a new question is posted to the app and users are invited to respond. You can scroll down and see other people’s responses, and “heart” them based on their answers. When you like someone’s answer, only that user can see it.
I liked that, right away, you have a conversation starter with someone you’ve matched with. It’s unlike any other dating app, and feels refreshing. It puts people’s personalities on display rather than just their profile pictures.
We couldn't agree more, and we're so glad Refinery29 and Bianca Heyward took the time to check out what we're all about!
