Happn is the Swipe-Right of Dating Apps

You took the F train to 2nd Avenue and came across the match of your dreams. For a fleeting moment you considered saying something, but couldn’t choose the words. Later that evening, you’re kicking yourself for doing nothing. Now Happn is there to help.
Rather than swiping forever on Tinder or perusing your local Craigslist Missed Connections section, the Happn mobile app matches you with people you crossed paths with during the course of life.
Born in Paris last year, Happn strikes a different course than well-established dating apps like Tinder or OKCupid. It’s all about proximity, which makes sense. Users are more likely to share common interests with somebody attending the same gigs, bars, or nightclubs, instead of indulging your random fix of swipe-rights.
Rather than just show photos in a hot-or-not climate, Happn only allows for conversation when there is a Crush.
