It is no secret that dating today is much different than it was ten years ago. Now, we have so many different dating applications that can help us find that special someone. However, there is a flaw to those applications. Many of them are solely based on physical appearance, and with one swipe, people can pass someone simply because they did not like their profile picture. We’re happy to say that we found a dating app that focuses on more than just physical appearance, and that is the Sweet Pea dating application.
What is Sweet Pea?
Founded by Michael Bruch, Sweet Pea is a dating application that was created to build more authentic and meaning relationships that are healthy and long-lasting. Instead of focusing on physical appearance, Sweet Pea focuses on chemistry, personality, and connection. It offers an inclusive community, with over 20 gender identity options, which is rare for a dating application.
How does it work?
Sweet Pea has several features that create a fun dating experience:
Icebreakers: Sending a first message to someone you’re interested in can be pretty awkward, but with the icebreaker feature, users can customize their own questions to get a meaningful conversation started.
Video Stories: With video stories, users can express their personality in a more authentic way, rather than through just written messages.
Advanced Filters for a Safer Space: Sweet Pea has a zero tolerance policy on harassment and bullying. It encourages a safe and welcoming community with three options: Intentions, Hush, and Driver’s Seat
- Intentions: Allows users to filter for matches seeking the same kind of connection they are, giving users over 50 filters to choose from.
- Hush: Automatically flags offensive messages, letting users decide whether or not they want to see the content
- Driver’s Seat: Provides users with additional control over their privacy and app experience by allowing them to select whether they wish to be messaged first.
Multiple Gender Identity Options: Users have a variety of gender identity options to choose from, including Agender, Androgynous, Bigender, Cis Male/Female, Genderfluid, Genderqueer, Gender Nonconforming, Hijra, Intersex, Non-binary, Transfeminine, Transgender, Transmasculine, Transsexual, Trans Man/Woman, Two Spirit and more!
What else should I know about it?
As part of Sweet Pea’s message to encourage healthy relationships, the app donates 10% of all profit to charities that help people escape and recover from toxic relationships and living situations that involve verbal abuse, domestic violence, and emotional trauma. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the United States, and through partnering with organizations like The National Domestic Violence Hotline, Loveisrespect, and RAINN, Sweet Pea aims to raise awareness and help address this public health crisis.
How do I download it?
Sweet Pea is available for download on iOS. Just go into the app store and search “Sweet Pea.” Once the app is downloaded, you can sign up either by logging in through your Facebook account, or by manually entering your personal information through the app. Once that is done, you can start looking for that special someone immediately!
