About this app

Everybody wants a fairytale ending, but we also know that every relationship should be based on a true story. That’s why we created DearReal – the dating app that lets your friends vouch for you and matchmake you to real people they think you’ll love.

Unlike other dating apps (Tinder, we’re looking at you), DearReal only deals with authentic people you can trust. How can we be sure? It’s simple: your friends have matched them to you or vouched for them.

Whether you’re looking for a new way to chat, meet and date, or you want to help your friends find true love, DearReal is the perfect place for you.

5 Reasons DearReal is better than the rest
1. You only meet real, authentic people – the most common dating apps are full of ghosts, catfish, robots and all-around weirdos. Thankfully, DearReal has none of that. We leverage the power of your social network to ensure that you only meet friend-approved matches. So no one can hide behind an anonymous profile, check out your friend's single friends!
2. It strengthens friendships – once upon a time, the most common way to meet people was through mutual friends. We’re on a mission to reclaim that, so we put your friends in charge of matching you to their friends. They can also give you a boost by vouching for you. These empowering words will help propel your dating profile up the rankings.
3. It’s a way to give back to your friends – you don’t have to be looking for love to be on DearReal. In fact, anyone can work as a matchmaker for their single friends. It helps strengthen friendships and leaves you with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
4. You’re always in control – we’ve made it super simple to hook up your network to the platform. With one tap, you can sync all your phone contacts and choose which friends you’d like to invite to be your personal matchmakers. It’s safe and secure, and there’s no risk you’ll invite Dave, the plumber, to set you up with his mates.
5. You can supercharge your dating experience – the free DearReal experience is great, but Premium features take it to the next level. In exchange for inviting two friends to the platform or for a small monthly fee, you get DearReal Premium: Extend the reach of your trusted network, be the first to view and approve matches, change your geolocation, video chat, profile rankings and the option to hide your age…

Real cool, eh? Download the app and start your true love story.
