Stagg: The next-generation gay dating app.

Stagg is every gay man's digital dating assistant to help you #GetOffYourApp and make connections.

Introducing the next generation dating app made just for gay men. With never-before-seen technology, Stagg makes dating smarter.  


Gay Apps are great! We’re huge fans, but we've heard from too many men who delete their gay apps in frustration and download them again a few weeks later because they can't stay away. Then they get frustrated all over again. Gay men want apps, but they want them to do more! 

WITH YOUR OLD GAY APPS DO YOU HAVE PROBLEMS...

  • Finding guys like you?
  • Clicking with the men that you meet?
  • Finding a guy with potential?

Here’s an official-looking chart of what 'side effects' we wish all gay apps had yet, as you'll see, there's a problem: 

OUR DIAGNOSIS

Old apps falter when it comes to revealing in-person chemistry and compatibility. This results in you becoming velcroed to first-generation gay apps as you try to find elusive sparks of connection. 

With your help we aim to fix that. We’re convinced that we’ve just begun to see how mobile technology is going to change how we date and find connection.


Yes, Torso Man, you really are so much more than a pair of nipples. We know that you look for more. 

We’re dudes. We get that we’re all pretty visual and that physical attraction is key.  Yet, there’s more to the equation. 

Our aim is to provide all Stagg members with incredibly useful, dynamic, and totally unique indicators of similarity and chemistry - indicators specifically created with gay men in mind. 

Every Stagg member’s app will be powered by millions of calculations handled by our proprietary algorithms. However, you don’t need a PhD to understand the results. We’ll present them in easy to understand form. 

IT STARTS WITH THESE NOT-SO-BASIC FEATURES AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR ALL

These basic features will be available to all Stagg members:

  • Dynamic Similarly Index. Points of similarity are at the foundation of any good relationship. Yet, it’s difficult to divine that information from the average gay app. We’re set to change that with weekly quizzes that continually fine tune your matches.
  • Dynamic Chemistry Index. There’s psychological science that predicts who will click, personality wise, and who won’t. It’s not simple and it's not straightforward — it’s actually nerdtastically complex — but we’ve made it easy to understand.


If you’re like Acronym Guy, you’re spending a lot of time on your gay apps. The sheer volume of men that gay apps can introduce you to is stunning! 

Though after a while, all that time spent on gay apps begins to take on a life and acronym-based language of its own. You get sucked in for hours, and you wind up with a digital hangover. NTM you DK what UR RLY talking @ half of the time.


OUR CORE PREMIUM GAY APP ADDICTION BUSTING TECHNOLOGIES

Beyond our basic features Stagg will offer the following premium features:

  • Dynamic Compatibility Index.  Our Compatibility Index brings together a mountain of data to reveal an easy-to-understand score which indicates your unique level of compatibility with other members. You’ll see whether there’s a high level of compatibility or low level.  Use this powerful information as you like. 
  • Conversation Starters.  We’ll provide you with continuously updated topics of interest that you'll be able to access for each member. They're designed to spark conversation when you’re not sure how to begin a chat or when you’ve run out of other things to say. Think about this: What happens when you want the conversation to continue, but you've run out of pics to send?  Try our Conversation Starters.
  • Sonar. This is an incredibly cool intersection of app technology and real life opportunities to meet someone new. With it, you'll see on Stagg the men around you who are out for a social evening of fun. You can choose to broadcast a temporary digital beacon of sorts — think electronic gay Bat Signal — to let other Stagg members know that you’re open to an in-person hello while you’re out.


SERENDIPITY 

This is the pinnacle. Think of Serendipity as your personal dating assistant. Serendipity will compute a mind-boggling number of calculations in the background as you go about your life. In real-time Serendipity will alert you when there’s a man nearby who we think deserves your attention.  Serendipity notifies you. You can look him up on Stagg. You decide how to take it from there. 

WHO ELSE BUT THE GAYS WOULD COME UP WITH KIND OF TECHNOLOGY?


WHERE WE ARE NOW

Stagg is awesomely complex behind the scenes and will implement many firsts in gay apps.

Over the last 30 months we've designed, created, and launched relationship assessment and technology prototypes. Our prototypes have been used to collect data on the principles that serve as the foundation of Stagg. We are now in the final stages of building our app for iPhones.


WITH YOUR HELP STAGG WILL BE A REALITY IN 6-9 MONTHS

We're 75% of the way there. We’re seeking $80,000 to finalize testing and app development. We’ll be: 

  • fine-tuning our chemistry and compatibility algorithms, 
  • implementing new technology to pave the way for in-person connection, and 
  • studying and refining the experience of using our app. 

We’re not leaving much to chance with our time- and resource-intensive, obsessive approach. That’s because we’re pragmatists at heart and we want you to have the best chance of being able to #GetOffYourApp. That is, finding a guy that makes you want to put down your gay app.
