Project Fixup is an online dating service that matches users and plans dates at a specific time and location.
Project Fixup seeks to end the trend popularized by apps like Tinder and Hinge in which users swipe left and right through an endless batch of potential matches. The dating service’s argument is that those apps usually only lead people to engage in conversation through the messaging service, a feature which Project Fixup has eliminated. Instead, the site organizes dates for users by setting a place, time and activity for the meet-up. The price for this service is relatively expensive compared to other dating apps, as each “fixup” costs $20 each.
Users answer a personality survey in order to set up a profile, and then the site begins attempting to match users in a specific city. Project Fixup also asks users to enter their schedule of availability and preference for date activities. Once the site finds a match, it sends an email with details about your potential meeting. Project Fixup organizes everything — the only thing users need to do is click “yes” or “no.” If both users say yes, then both credit cards are charged. Although it’s somewhat expensive to use Project Fixup, the site organizes interesting dates centered around food or alcohol in cool locations. Also, at least $20 isn’t a bad price to pay to get out of the house and stop swiping left and right all day.
