New Dating Site LoveFlutter Filters Out “Boring Types” By Setting Entrance Test

love flutter

LoveFlutter is a new dating site exclusively for interesting people – aiming to filter out “boring types” by setting an entrance test before you join.

Created by London-based Daigo Smith and David Standen, users must take the “Quirky-Interesting Test” before they can join the site, which then matches members based on similar interests.

The 10 question test was created by Dr Simon Moore of the British Psychological Society, with each answer giving you a certain number of points – 3 for most interesting and 1 for least interesting.

You then get a score out of 100, and if it is below 65, you are rejected.

If you pass however, you can create “a profile full of your loves and likes” and the site matches you with people nearby who enjoy the same music, films and books etc.

For this it uses Freebase, an online “database of the world’s knowledge” which has over 40 million entries, that was bought by Google.

Freebase forms part of Google’s Knowledge Graph, which powers LoveFlutter – giving the site a more powerful and nuanced interest-matching system.
