Is finding love by swiping right on based on looks not yielding the desired results? PB&J, a soon-to-launch, Toronto-made dating app thinks singles might do better by pairing off based on favourite foods and restaurants.
Food preferences, can after all, be a total deal-breaker when dating.
Like Tindr, but for foodies, the platform lets users scroll through photos of food porn at local restaurants. “See a food picture you like? Swipe right and let PB&J do the rest… Using a series of algorithms, the app tracks your profile preference and liked pictures, and connects you with people who share similar culinary tastes.”
In a press release, PB&J founder, and Toronto-based technologist, Vikram Bhatia shares that: “We believe that food has always been a key ingredient when getting to know someone new. Our mobile app facilitates friendships and relationships that start by sharing mutual culinary tastes.”
Alas, the app doesn’t launch in Toronto until February 25, 2018 – so, you’ll have to spend yet another Valentine’s Day on a hot date with someone who doesn’t know the difference between Cacio e pepe and Carbonara.
