Want to make friends who also like video games in Tokyo before you visit there? Wander can do that. Want to find a date who also loves Broadway for next Friday in New York? Wander can do that too. Want to get surfing tips from locals in Malibu? Wander can do that 24/7 because singles can use Wander interest group chat at any time night or day whether they're in their home cities or traveling.
Using Wander, like-minded singles can now easily come together to chat about a wide range of shared interests like music, movies, nightlife, dating, travel/adventure, food, fitness, technology, gaming, and fashion. Wander users can also easily share real-time chat and meet during larger live events like music festivals, conventions, sporting events, or, smaller group events like flea markets, road trips, hiking, and bike rides.
Unlike traditional dating apps that offer singles a buffet of little more than images of people to take an uneducated chance on, Wander gives singles – whether they're looking for dates, friends, or just tips from locals or experts – a richer, more immediately engaging experience via shared interest chat groups. Singles can easily join or start conversations around their most passionate interests and meet groups of like-minded singles from any location they choose from around the world.
Users simply login to Wander and select the interests they care about. The app then intelligently recommends the most compatible group chats categorized by interest, event, place or, what's trending. Two taps later and the group chat is on!
In the group chat room, they can join the conversation, check out other members, and even create subgroups to chat about more specific topics.
Krystal Choo, CEO and Founder of Wander, says, "Meeting new people over shared interests is so much more enjoyable because it's already familiar to you. You chose your interests on the way in to the group! Wander is a platform where singles the world over can be themselves and have great conversations with others who share the same passions and curiosity.
At Wander, it's important to us to keep humanity at the heart of every interaction we enable. The shared-interest chat groups allow for a more natural and human way for singles to come together and interact around familiar topics before meeting in person, and if all goes well, to share experiences beyond over a screen."
Studies indicate that 64% of singles prefer having common interests as the most important factor in online dating, above other factors like physical characteristics. The Wander singles app provides this preferred 'common interest' factor to enable connections with each other in a way that's fun, engaging, enlightening and all in real-time.
