People are very good at spotting someone they fancy in a bar but it is often the case that social norms prevent them from simply saying hello.
London (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
Ice Brkr boldly predicts that chat up lines will become obsolete in London bars as it announces the beta launch of it's mobile dating service.
Seems odd that in an age when we routinely view profiles and chat to attractive strangers online, technology still can't help us do the same thing with someone we fancy in the very same room.
And when you consider that there would be no need for esoteric matching algorithms, because most people can decide if they fancy someone within a few seconds of seeing them, it seems even more bizarre.
Ice Brkr brings a brand new approach to this age old problem. Their mobile dating application lets you send a friendly message to someone you find attractive in a bar. And if a nice message comes back you both get together immediately for a chat.
According to Timi Agama, the founder and CEO of Ice Brkr, "People are very good at spotting someone they fancy in a bar but it is often the case that social norms prevent them from simply saying hello."
It's not a straightforward issue.
Women are often on the receiving end of clumsy advances. And their frustration at being bothered by men they are simply not interested in can be obvious. In fairness to them though, there's a lot of research which shows that women signal their interest when they are interested in a man, so they can be forgiven for wondering why men don't look for the signal.
Men on the other hand swear that the right chat up line is all you really need to open up a conversation.
It's no wonder everyone can end up feeling a little confused and frustrated.
But the future doesn't have to be like that.
Ice Brkr uses the simple fact that we humans can quickly tell if we fancy someone to help you meet real people and quickly see if there's any chemistry between you. All while you're out having fun in a bar.
The Ice Brkr team hope that someday their mobile dating service will be the socially accepted way to introduce yourself to someone you fancy in a bar.
They dream about transforming female phones into magical tools that attract the right guys but keep unwanted suitors away. And of helping guys to see the 'signal' on their phone so they never have to get it wrong again.
They dream about the day when the need for a witty chat up line will be so last year.
And they dream about how their 'human technology' will transform the nature of dating in London bars.
But you can have the future now. Because everything you need to get in on the action is right there in the palm of your hand.
