NEW YORK, October 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — FROME brings back real encounters.
After a successful launch in Los Angelesthe new dating and social networking app First round’s On me (FROM) amounts to New York Citywhere the idea was born, with a series of month-long launch events.
The app, which is designed to ensure users meet in person, is inspired by a time when people met organically rather than primarily on dating apps. With FROME, users pick up their phone and find themselves in real life.
“I’m proud to help people connect and stop relying on technology alone,” says Founder and CEO Joe Female, who was inspired to design FROME after spending years on dating apps that rarely resulted in a real experience. “The world of dating apps is saturated, but it constantly leaves people unsatisfied. The more time I spent swiping, the more I realized it wasn’t an effective way to make a real connection.”
FROME organizes pop-up events with partners throughout manhattan in October, which began on 10/7 with the exciting new brand Sugar Wood. These events will build up to the official NYC launch party on November 4 at 214 Lafayette. Follow @firstroundsonme for updates on all events.
How FROME works:
- After creating their profile, users select either “Available Today”, indicating they are available that day, or “Available This Week”, indicating they are available all week.
- Once users see someone they’re interested in, they send a date request with a specific date, time, and location. If the recipient accepts, it’s an appointment (maximum one appointment per day, Romeo!).
- Six hours before the date, a chat is available, giving users time to break the ice before meeting in person but not too much time where they transform into pen pals.
- With collaborations in some of the hottest bars, cafes and restaurants, FROME helps users find the perfect hangout and take the stress out of where to go.
After raising a first round of $1 million, Feminella and the FROME team unveiled the app in LA hotspots including ChaCha Match, DrinkBev, Bravo Toast and Rocco’s. The LA launch was voted the LA party of the week by LA GUESTLIST. Born in New York, Feminella wanted to launch the app in the city that inspired her.
“Frome is designed for everywhere, but especially New York. New Yorkers are bold, confident, and comfortable meeting in person. With so many singles in a condensed area, I can’t wait for our users to experience the application here,” says Feminelle.
