What is Heyup
Its a real time dating app powered by real life interactions. We meet new people everyday, Heyup gives you the opportunity to connect with those people, ensuring we never miss a dating opportunity again.
Heyup founder Michelle Cafferty had spent years listening to friends who regularly use online dating platforms but never manage to find the one. Michelle noticed flaws in the current dating platforms and used these to create Heyup .Traditional dating has become dated!
Michelle says I have many friends that regularly use online dating platforms, my friends never have a problem getting the dates but never seem to meet their soulmate. From listening to their stories I have learned that communicating online can adopt intimacy and affection between strangers but it can also lead to unrealistic expectations and disappointment.
It appears that there are a lot of time wasters out there, Who just enjoy email banter but have no intention of going on a real date. Whether its because the build up of actually meeting that person is too nerve racking or they just simply enjoy the online attention they are getting. Either way its time wasting and money consuming, whilst your paying your monthly subscription fee and getting nowhere fast. Friends have often described going on a first date with someone you have never met before as being as terrifying as a job interview, wheres the fun in that! You also have the issue of turning up to find they look nothing like their profile picture and are not what they had portrayed, again this is just time wasting. Not everyone on dating sites are looking for love, to be honest some just want to get their £35 worth of dates and date the hell out of a 20 mile radius, resulting in serial daters!
This is what made me create Heyup . We have revolutionised the way people meet. The app is designed to help people meet in a more natural and romantic way rather than the compatibility robot that is used on most dating sites, using superficial filtering options that can discount that someone special. Heyup uses location aware technologies on your smart phone to match you with other singles who are literally around you right now. The benefit of Heyup is that you have already seen that person in real life and had that instant connection, which is far more romantic and ultimately less time wasting for both of you.
Heyup App is FREE to download with No monthly subscription fees.
