Another day, another dating appdate, this time bringing two hot pieces of dating app news, including the launch of an app for people who hate so-called ‘cancel culture’, plus a series of women complaining about being kicked off apps because, they claim, they appear too attractive to be real.
PureMatch takes on dating app snowflakes
A dating app aimed at politically right-wing people has launched, claiming to be a romantic haven for those sick of cancel culture.
PureMatch – not to be confused with Christ-friendly dating app Pure Match, although there may be some user base overlap – launched in early 2022. It has recently been giving away its tie-in cryptocurrency, the Purematch Token, which can be used for in-app purchases.
Currently available via Google Play, PureMatch is being marketed with the phrase: “Find your perfect match without being cancelled.”
The company says the app is designed to “bring together people who have the right to date anyone without being cancelled or discriminated against. It has become clearer as we move further into 2022, that living in a world where cancel culture is becoming the norm, PureMatch gives freedom of choice.”
The app operates similarly to established swipe-based dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble. PureMatch gave further clues as to the nature of the user base it was aimed at by retweeting a message in January about showing solidarity to Canadian truckers who had been protesting covid-19 vaccine rules.
One user’s review of PureMatch reads: “I’ve tried so many other dating apps but seeing as people now discriminate against those that aren’t vaccined [sic], this is the best dating app I’ve used.”
We wouldn’t normally encourage political echo chamber dating, but if you’re looking for love with someone who believes that wearing masks to stop the spread of disease is part of a New World Order plan for global dominance, PureMatch could be the place for you to find love. Or Coronavirus.
Sorry, you’re too hot for dating apps
Next up, we’re headed to the British tabloid newspaper world, where The Mirror has run a dating story that is in no way an excuse to print photos of women with enormous breasts, not wearing much.
The newspaper has reported on a trend – or at least a couple instances – of people complaining of being wrongfully kicked off dating apps because their good looks triggered suspicion about their accounts.
24 year-old Tahlia Paris, a Playboy model, complained that her “very PG” photos had been removed from Bumble hours after being uploaded. She suspected that it was because she was “too beautiful”.
Alaw Haff, a 24 year-old OnlyFans creator from Wales, said she had been kicked off Tinder, Bumble and Hinge. She said she believed the removals were because there was suspicion around her photos depicting her true image.
“I would never post anything offensive but it’s hard to find a picture of myself wearing clothes when 90 percent of my pictures are in lingerie or swimwear due to my work,” she told The Mirror:
Another woman told the newspaper she was kicked off Tinder because her profile images kept being used by others for catfishing scams.
