Hi, I’m Jamie. The founder & CEO of Flox.
I remember the day I downloaded Hinge and thought: so I guess this is how I’ll be meeting people from now on. As I racked up my first few likes, it was exciting and tantalizing, but something about it felt reductive; the feeling of random guys liking me because of my photos and profile summary was strange.
From hand-selecting my best photos to having the same conversations with different matches... it was soul-sucking. Dating apps weren’t helping me form the types of relationships I wanted: new friends, people who could help further my career, and guys to date who weren’t making a decision on me based off of my looks.
Connection isn’t a swipe-able profile on an iPhone screen — it’s real conversations between real people who meet in-person, not online, first.
