”On Hinge we encourage our members to be authentic with one another because we know that leads to the best connections,” explains Hinge founder and CEO Justin Mc Leod.As users continue to talk, the blur fades away – but users can opt to add it back if they want to remain hidden.Zoosk says the blur fades over 40 seconds, but you can tap “Add Blur” whenever you like to remain hidden.But unlike with Lively’s profile videos, the chat feature allows users to start their session with their screen blurred.This helps users instantly feel more comfortable, the company explains, without having to worry about what they look like right away.Testimonials from former POF members globally are proof that dating sites work and signing up for free encourages the most cynical singles to check out online dating and find out whether it works or not.
