7. 3rdDegree App

3rdDegree App

Founded: 2020

“For something meant to be so effortless, dating is a lot of work. After the apps, the pep talks, and the plans, the process to truly get to know someone is a slow, scary, and time-consuming one.

It takes time for our profiles to fade away and our true personalities to be seen. It takes time to move past the small talk and ask the real questions. And when seeing where it goes doesn’t work out after all, it takes time to heal and do it all over again.

But revealing your real side and seeing someone else’s shouldn’t be that difficult. All it takes is a little communication.”
