fancied - fancied

Best New Service or Application


After attending a party in 2012, Christie Sharpe the founder of ‘fancied’ realised that in social settings most people don’t have the courage to initiate a conversation with complete strangers. So she set about developing the concept of an app that would enable people to broaden their social circle based on where they like to hang out and through their own social media network of friends and acquaintances. One of the biggest challenges with meeting people from online and mobile dating services is the fear of not knowing if the person you’re connecting with will be genuine. ‘fancied’ eliminates this issue and gives the user confidence that the profiles on fancied are authentic, as singles have to register through Facebook. ‘fancied’ removes some of the obstacles to meeting new people as there is no rejection with fancied. Your interest in the other person is only revealed if they also ‘fancy’ you. There has to be a mutual interest from both parties for a match to be formed. Once a mutual interest is established a love-heart appears to reveal you have an opportunity to make contact and message each other. ‘fancied’ just doesn’t show you who you can meet, it also show you where the best places are to meet based on your location. ‘fancied’ is a fun social networking tool that lets the user meet their match at a recommended nightlife venue, or alternatively, motivates singles’ to meet new people based on the ‘hot-spots’ they can see on ‘fancied’.
