Online dating services are big business. Increasingly, companies are specializing in order to help singles narrow down the list of potential mates. There are dating websites for particular religious and ethnic groups, farmers, and even the infamous Ashley Madison, for those looking to date while still married.
Now there is a smartphone app for divorced people ready to start dating again, but interested in people who have gone through a similar experience. The app, appropriately enough, is called Divorce Dating.
An article in AppAdvice.com provides a summary of how Divorce Dating works. The user answers a few questions about themselves, such as what they learned from their divorce. From there, you look at other members’ profiles, which feature photos, including “Fabric Questions,” which are answered with photos, perhaps to make scanning through profiles faster.
Another feature touted by AppAdvice is called Wingman. The Wingman lets the user select three people to examine matches for you and make recommendations.
Except for some divorce-related questions in the profile creation stage, it does not sound as if Divorce Dating has much that is specifically tailored toward divorced singles. Still, the fact that it is being marketed to people who have been married before suggests that most subscribers will have experienced the heartbreak and strain of divorce, so if that is what you are looking for in a new partner, this app could do the trick.
Of course, before getting to this stage, it is necessary to figure out how to end your current marriage. From a legal perspective, the right attorney can make this process relatively painless.
