MEN, you can now stop lurking around bar hoping to meet that special someone, and ladies, forget about trolling through your friends list to find a match. Simply get on to Woo and let the app do the rest.
The app helps urban singles find real relationships, and is a product of U2opia mobile and Sumesh Menon, CEO and co-founder, tells us that it facilitates the work and social life balance. a�?Once people are settled professionally, life falls into a sort of groove between work and home. So just as they start to look for a relationship, the chances of meeting new people becomes smaller,a�? he explains, adding that Woo solves that problem by connecting a�?singles with similar interests to form meaningful, long-term relationshipsa��.
Emphasising that it is not about casual flings and more focussed on marriage or a long-term relationship, Menon says, a�?Woo is about real relationships. Ita��s not for a�?fraandshipa�� seekers and neither is it an old-fashioned matrimonial website that believes that compatibility is a function of complexion, weight and caste.a�? Targeting single, urban professionals in the age group of 25-35, Menon says it even helps younger people view this as a more serious platform separate from a�?more frivolous conceptsa��.
Saying that Woo a�?keeps it reala�� in three ways, Menon describes the meticulous process they use to keep fake profiles out. a�?We screen out each application to make sure it is a curated community seeking meaningful relationships, we allow a�?mutual friendsa�� to actually make introductions like in real life, and we make sure that distance isna��t an issue by keeping matches within the same city,a�? he explains.
If someone takes your fancy, you swipe to like them. If they like you back, the match is made and the rest is up to the two involved, he says!
