First comes love… 💖
Valentine’s is coming up, so let’s start with some dating startups. I shared Monet last month, the dating app where you draw (so Gen Z). XO is where you play mini-games with dates. Lolly looks like Tik Tok, but only for singles. For video dates, check out The League or Filter Off. They both have video speed dating too. So Synced connects people based on personality type. If you want to join a community to ask questions about dating, head over to Clarity. In a relationship? Zeta is a joint banking app for couples.
Then comes marriage… 💍
