Decades ago it would be unthinkable for people to find love online. Especially when there is no modern technology for it to work. Nevertheless, they have to rely on meeting potential lovers via introduction by parents, relatives and friends. Often, one may be walking on the road and meet someone they like. Likewise during events such as marriage ceremonies, burials, and church services.

These practices though old are still in existence and have recorded many success stories. Perhaps they may not even be completely obliterated.

Just like everything else in our lives, technology now impacts how we fall in love. As the old practices of meeting potential lovers are deemed old-fashioned. Now, People seek love online either through social media or dating apps. By so doing, they find the love and intimacy they crave.

Trueflutterwas founded in September 2018 by Dare and Ayo Olatoye. Simply to help people find their potential partners through algorithms. All the algorithms do is assess people’s preferences and concerns before matching them with someone. As stated above, people still rely on good old-fashioned ways to meet their potential partners. Trueflutter recognises this process and digitized it. Just to create an avenue for people to meet by matching the most compatible people.

How does it work

True flutter like many other matchmaking apps uses people’s preferences to suggest a possible match. It is important to note that Trueflutter is not a hookup platform for prostitutes and fraudsters. Rather it’s an app designed to make people’s hearts flutter by connecting them to potential long-term partners. Users can rest assured that it is safe and won’t put them in harm’s way.

Features of the TrueFlutter app

The Trueflutter app has the following:

Selfie mode: This feature allows users to update their profile pictures. To ensure that the owner of the account is the one whose picture has been uploaded. As well as to prevent catfishing (pretending to be another person online).

Audio calls: This feature encourages users to listen to the other person’s audio bio to hear what he or she sounds like. Thus, helping users choose a partner not just because of looks alone.

Video calls: This is a step further than the audio calls. Through video calls, people can see their matches to confirm whether they are the same before agreeing to meet. In all, Trueflutter aims to make sure that when you begin a conversation, you are sure to know the kind of person you are speaking to.

Privacy settings: The feature accounts for the privacy needs of its users. Users can choose to decide who sees their profile. When they turn on the advanced privacy settings, they can choose to be discovered by a selected few, everyone or no one.

What does the future hold for Trueflutter

Love is beautiful and everyone deserves to find it. If it is not so, then several love stories will not have happened. Sadly, Match-making apps are not a dime a dozen in Nigeria. In short, only very few players are in this niche market.

Nonetheless, Trueflutter will face competition not with dating apps but with social media, especially Instagram. This is because Instagram has many matchmakers who are paid to compile profiles of individuals and share them on their pages.

For instance, Joro Olumofin’s page shows many men sharing their profiles and describing the kind of women they are looking to date. He then puts out the post on his page while Interested applicants chat him up or send an email. Although Trueflutter has already digitized this practice, it still aims to keep improving its services of matching people. It has also introduced machine learning to help it learn from a user’s activity and choices. Ultimately helping filter their possible ‘flutters’ even better. 

Final words

Indeed, Trueflutter is for anyone that finds the dating pool complicated. Or rather for people who find themselves too busy to meet people the old-fashioned way. If this describes you, you can consider signing up on Trueflutter and embark on the journey to finding the one. All you have to do is download Trueflutter on Google Play Store and the iOS app store to get started.
