Dating for healthy people
Want a partner who will log long runs with you on the reg? Fitness dating apps like Sweatt exist specifically for gym diehards, but there are also plenty of ways you can hack apps like Bumble to match you with more fitness-minded men or women.
In fact, Erika Ettin, founder of A Little Nudge, an online dating coaching service, doesn’t generally recommend super-niche apps unless not having a certain background or religion is a total deal-breaker.
It also hosts events, like fitness cruises, and aims to cultivate a community via social media, says Steven Macecevic, Datefit’s CEO.
Only 6% said they were not at all likely to support physical fitness in their partners.
“We certainly don’t consider ourselves a ‘gym rat’ app.”If you seem to always catch the eye of the same sexy runner on your path, Happn may just be the ice-breaker you need.
A sort of modern day “missed connections” app, Happn uses location and real-time data to allow users to find and reconnect with people who they’ve crossed paths with in everyday life.
“A Happner’s timeline reflects their everyday activity, so they can find people who are as active as them,” says Eugenie Legendre, Happn’s international PR and communications manager.
There’s also a new map feature so you zoom in on a gym, park, or sports event to check out fellow Happners who were there at the same time.
