Tawkify is an online dating service that uses personal matchmakers in order to find and schedule dates.
Tawkify is an online dating service that reintroduces the human connection that can be lost on sites and apps like OKCupid or Tinder. Rather than having users make public profiles and sift through potential matches before agreeing to go on a date, Tawkify connects individuals with a personal matchmaker. After taking a 10 question survey about what you’re looking for in the dating world, you actually meet up with your matchmaker for drinks or a coffee in order for him or her to better get to know you. The matchmakers then comb through an extensive list of candidates for you, doing the work that an algorithm has yet to perfect. The entire process makes things easier for everyone. Tawkify does the work, and all you have to do is show up for the date.
There are three options for first dates that Tawkify offers. The first is called ‘Mystery Date,’ and it consists of the matchmaker sending instructions on what to do and where to go to both parties involved in the date. Depending on your location, the matchmaker tries to pick fun, active things to do to eliminate any of the awkwardness that might be involved with meeting up for a first date. There’s also the option to do a ‘Walkify,’ which is basically a walking tour/date combination. If you’d rather meet your potential match over the phone first, you can do a short ‘Tawkify’ conversation as well. The site’s pricing works on a subscription basis, and the company offers $50 off if you sign up within your first hour of visiting the site. For those that want to try online dating but simply don’t have the time to endlessly swipe and sift through potential matches, Tawkify might be the best option available.
