Anyone who’s ever downloaded a dating app knows that finding love online can be tricky and, most of all, exhausting. Good news: a new app is here to help you with that mission. Here’s all you have to know about RAW — a new dating app to meet your first love again.

Cut the Fake, Find RAWmance

With so many similar dating apps on the market, RAW can be a breath of fresh air. It’s here to solve common online-dating problems and bring back that simple feeling of a high school crush. If you’re tired of avoiding scammers and catfishers, fed up with ghosting, and won’t put up with yet another fake profile, the perfect solution is right in front of you! No polished profiles or meaningless small talks — only raw, authentic real-life moments. You can show your unique cool personality and vibe with other young creative new yorkers who are seeking real connections as you swipe: no filters, no made-up stories, just true feelings between you and your crush.

“With RAW, you don’t lose yourself in a maze of “verified” profiles that make you question your own realness. No more high school kids pretending to be millionaires. No more “celebrity” profiles asking for money. It’s over. And know that when you get 100 matches on RAW, they’re all real,” says Marina Anderson, co-founder of RAW dating app.

Love at First (Back and Front) Shot

The main goal of RAW is to let you show your true self through daily photo updates on the app’s dual camera feature. With a different time of posting every day, you get the opportunity to capture vivid moments of your daily lifestyle from different, sometimes unusual, angles. That’s a sense of spontaneity for you right there! Tell your fascinating story with raw, unfiltered pics that showcase your passions, hobbies, and whatnot, letting potential crushes get to know the real you. No need to spend much time perfecting your profile or overthink the bio — focus on the fun side of dating instead. In return, you get fresh images of your match in their natural habitat, not some old and over-filtered photos from five years ago. With RAW, you can (and probably will) fall in love like in real life. 

“RAW is not another fake dating app. We’ve had enough of fakes, filters, and ghosting. That’s why we brought back what matters most in dating: love”, Marina Anderson. 

Bye Bye Ghosting

Another useful RAW feature is limiting unreplied chats to prevent ghosting and create a respectful and positive dating environment for all users across the platform. Treat people who liked you as if it was you on the other side waiting for a reply — no conversations should be left hanging for the sake of good karma (you can report or block users to make sure that no toxic behavior is spoiling your and others’ RAW experience).

Stay True to RAWself

There you have it — a dating app that helps you to relive that simple feeling of a high school crush and makes falling in love easier by softening the rough edges of online dating. So, turn on that camera of yours and start swiping — with RAW, your future soulmate could be waiting just around the corner, so give it a (double) shot!
