Introducing a
new way of dating

Help people you like find people they love

Nearly half of people on existing dating apps are unhappy

We're out to change that. We want to offer people something different to the same solo-swiping experience that almost all apps use, and which hook people into a cycle of feeling frustrated and insecure.

What does Intro Date do differently?

On Intro Date, friends or people who share your interests introduce you to great matches, helping you find the perfect partner.

In return, you will help others find their perfect match by introducing them to potential partners.

The more great Intros you suggest, the more great Intros you get!

How does it work?

First, create a profile

Your profile on Intro is easy-to-create and unique to you. You can combine information about your background and interests, with text and photo prompts to give matchmakers and potential matches the best flavour of who you really are.

Propose matches for other people

You'll be shown the profile of someone similar to you, and a shortlist of people we think might work well for them. Put yourself in their shoes and try to recommend someone they'll really like.

See who's been Introduced to you

You can take a look at the profiles of people who have been recommended to you, and if you both like each other, you can start chatting. When you match with someone, your matchmaker will be told they've made a great Intro, without being told it was for you.

Get seen more by matchmaking well

Matchmaking for others is more than just its own reward. If you suggest Intros that then go on to match, you'll be rewarded with more visibility for your profile in the future.

We focus on making our users feel proud, rather than trying to hook you into a cycle of dating anxiety

What makes Intro better?

Intro Date combines the best of machine and human intelligence to create an app where our users can be themselves, help each other find great dates (and avoid the nasty ones), and feel amazing doing it.

Meet the team

Our team's values echoes the promises we make to our users: just like dating, employment at Matchmaker strives to be enjoyable, fair, collaborative, and totally unique.
