This new dating app is aimed specifically at geeks

Carl Kinsella

Have you been Wookie-ing for love in all the wrong places?

Tinder is as popular as ever, but it doesn’t quite work out for everybody.

One of the main issues with Tinder is that it’s impossible to learn all that much about who you’re swiping right for before you match with them.

DragonFruit is an app that seeks to remedy that problem in a very specific way: by inviting users to share as many nerdy details about themselves as possible.

You can let the app know just exactly what your various geek obsessions are, whether it be Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica or LEGO, and it’ll calculate your geek rating, finding you matches based on geekdoms in common.


So if you feel like you’re that bit too dorky for the average dating app, you can download DragonFruit from the App Store or Google Play now.
