First it was Tinder, then came Bumble and now Hinge is what the buzz is all about. Many people have found success on these apps but for others, it’s hard to find someone you truly vibe with. That’s about to change for those looking for a dating app that works. This an app for dog-lovers based in New Orleans and its totally a major shift in the right direction for the singles community.
Dig, a new dog-lovers’ dating app based in New Orleans was created by two sisters, Casey and Leigh Isaacson. It was launched in February 2018 and has since picked up a considerable amount of traction across the country.
When it comes to compatibility, there’s no better way to bond than over furry friends. There’s something to be said about dog lovers, because it typically means they have a good heart.
You’re sort of skipping a step when you score a date with a dog-lover because it already says a lot about the person.
A primary goal of Dig is to avoid the gamification of online dating, so no swiping involved. Instead, you can scope out profiles and immediately chat with the men or women who pique your interest.
You can choose who you “dig,” “really dig,” and who you want to “pass on.” The app even encourages singles to go beyond the screen with suggestions for things to do in the area and even deals on dog treats to surprise your Dig date.
Even if you don’t currently own a dog but love them anyways, you can totally hop on the app. According to a Gambit interview with the creators, Leigh says that nearly one-third of users don’t actually have a dog.
So if you’re thinking of getting a dog in the future or want to meet someone who has one, Dig is perfect for you too.
