BELONG – a New Smart Dating and Social Experiences App – Launches in San Francisco


A new era of modern dating is here. BELONG is the first smart dating app to use artificial intelligence to curate personalized matches and social events specifically for accomplished singles. The new app helps people go from match to meet in real life, fast – allowing users to arrange dates with limited online communication.

Launched today for the San Francisco Bay Area, BELONG is a specialized and intelligent assistant for finding quality matches and curated events based on shared interests and lifestyles.

“BELONG is reinventing the modern dating experience by making it easy for single professionals to meet and mingle with other likeminded individuals in real life,” said Bahareh Mohammadi, CEO and Founder of BELONG. “Our exclusive app solves many of the common frustrations most singles experience with traditional dating websites and apps. They are overloaded with unqualified options, offer little to no real-life experiences and have too many flaky and unserious users.”

A recent survey of online daters, commissioned by BELONG, found that over half of respondents (53.8%) are frustrated with ‘flaky users that aren’t serious’ about meeting in real life or creating meaningful relationships. The survey also indicated that online daters are frustrated by an ‘overload of unfit choices’ (41.5%).

To solve for these frustrations, BELONG infused state-of-the-art technologies not found in other dating apps to create personalized dating and curated social experiences tailored for users based on their interests and lifestyles. The platform’s technology uses artificial intelligence to analyze each user’s demographic and behavioral data – with their explicit permission – from photos, profiles, interactions and events. Once users find a match they continue to reap benefits from BELONG’s machine learning capabilities. With personalized filtering, the app learns an individual’s tastes, enabling it to recommend specific date plans and guide users through the process of setting them up – time, location, activity. Following the date, users can rate their date experience, further providing feedback to the app and ensuring a thriving community of serious and qualified singles.

BELONG is an exclusive platform that requires both LinkedIn and Facebook authentication to ensure a robust community of sophisticated and accomplished single professionals. It also organizes a large variety of unique and curated social events for singles to connect around real-life activities, and leverages machine learning to tailor event recommendations to each user’s interests and lifestyle.
