Online dating entrepreneur who is sheryl swoopes dating
“I remember thinking ‘I should do my due diligence on this one,’” she remembers, after spending a weekend chatting with this potential significant other.“I don’t know why, I felt something was off.” In a bizarre turn of events, the man turned out to be a wanted criminal. At least, as far as one can tell from Tinder: He was a coffee-loving “urban adventurer” from the Midwest and an entrepreneur who walked dogs on the side. So when Nathan (not his real name) matched with Alexandra Tweten, a 28-year-old woman living in Los Angeles, she was eager to start chatting. “It could have been my exact profile,” says Tweten. In his free time, he could be found digging through all the right vinyl genres: indie rock, shoegaze, electronic, and new age.
Happn is a location-based dating app that connects you to people whose paths you’ve recently crossed.
The idea is that instead of replacing those serendipitous meetings so beloved of Hollywood (our eyes met longingly across the crowded room, etc etc), it just makes them easier, helping you find people you wished you'd spoken to, but couldn't quite muster the courage to do so.
‘The dating space was too virtual, you were seeing a kind of catalogue of profiles. These are the people around you, the people you just crossed paths with, right now,’ says Didier Rapapport, the serial entrepreneur behind Happn.
“These are all interests of mine as well.”Surely, the universe was somehow trolling her. And refreshingly, he had date ideas that extended beyond the default meet-up at a bar. He apologized, explaining that he had meant to call somebody else. She brushed it off, joking that, for a moment, she thought he might have been “a crazy person.” Apparently offended, he started berating her even more furiously.
Perhaps they could go for a nighttime drive around Beverly Hills, or make cocktails and listen to records. “I was trying to explain something and you cut me off! She hung up and dodged several more calls and texts before finally humoring him with a few minutes of her attention. So you can see why I’m pretty tense.” He told Tweten that she had insulted him earlier and asked for an apology.
