Say Something in the press:

Practice your dating skills from the comfort of your home


We want to save men and women from awkwardness, eerie silences and bad conversations. SAY SOMETHING will turn confusing first dates into an enjoyable, fun play.

That's the promise of SAY SOMETHING, an iPhone app designed to introduce users to other singles, allowing them to practice their chat up lines and dating conversations. From the FIRST CONVERSATION all the way to a DATE. Its all completely anonymous so users never meet. We can proudly say this is the first app of its kind in the world! 


What is the Problem with Dating? 

  • 50% of all single adults now use online dating
  • 80% of these users have a terrible first experience
That's a BIG problem!


How do we know? We love facts - they tell the truth. So we analyse and study online and mobile dating behaviour or real people. By the way, we have just presented our latest Online Dating Deconstructed 2013 study at Google Campus.  


The reason?

The biggest reason for failed dates is lack of dating skills - awkward dates and boring conversations. 


We have the solution!


We want to stop people getting slapped on their first date!

The app allows men to practice their conversational and dating skills with real women. It presents a situation, for example, 'You're standing at a bar and she smiles at you', then asks the player to type what they would say. Female players can immediately give feedback, giving it thumbs-up or down. Then they also type their response, to which the men can provide feedback too. 

So SAY SOMETHING uses CROWD SOURCING to gather dating advice. In other words the more you play, the more valuable feedback you get.

There are two key premises:

  1. Dating practice is virtual, players will not meet in real life;
  2. No direct personal contact makes honest feedback possible.



Where the idea came from

A few years ago when I tried online dating, I send over 50 messages to potential dates only to see 2 responses. Including an 'out of office' auto reply. True story :) I asked a few experts for advice, but there gurus often contradicted themselves.

Then it hit me: Dating is personal and what works for one person, may not work for another. Dating advice MUST be personal!

It seems like a revolutionary idea. As a matter of fact, it is. It makes dating gurus obsolete. Luckily we don't need them anymore, because with SAY SOMETHING people can help each other just by playing a simple game.  


We are going for Gold!

We have already developed two other apps with over 23 thousand happy users. Sure, we learn every day and are humbled by our customers' feedback. Yet, this is not our first app project and we know how to make it happen. We know that when we say we will go live in Oct 2013, we will. That is our team's promise.



We are crazy about constructive feedback, it makes us work harder. We also like positive feedback and are happy to share it with you. Our prototype has been shortlisted for the Most Innovative Dating Service Award of 2013! This is the Oscars of the dating world! The deadline for final votes is Oct 31st, we will launch on Oct 1st. As you can see, we HAVE to launch on time.
