June 21, 2016 -- /PRNEWSWIRE/ -- Everyone has suffered through a bad date at some point in their life, but rarely there's a Plan B; now with the bod (Bad Online Dates) app, users can ditch the bad date and potentially meet someone new, and in real-time within minutes. The app is now available for both iOS and Android.
"Roughly 11% of Americans use online dating and apps – that means millions of people get stuck on some potentially very bad dates," says Jennifer Kelton, dating industry vet and Founder & CEO of bod. "The more time people spend on bad dates, the worse they feel about dating and their prospects. This app gives control back to every dater."
Once the bod app is installed, users will have new options to leave a bad date, and find a new close-by match in their vicinity. When the "Date Mode" is enabled, users become discoverable, making them visible to other local app users (radius in settings), even those not currently on a bad date. Once mutual interest is established, users receive push notifications; more importantly, they have a reason to believe that the end of their bad date is just the start of something exciting – an escape plan for the night that may turn into finding that special someone! It's as easy as 1, 2, 3: 1- Match, 2 - Message, 3 – Meetup.
When "Date Mode" is disabled, it functions as a standard matchmaking app, connecting users within the bod network. In addition, for users who feel shy or awkward when meeting new people, the app offers a variety of icebreakers and conversation starters.
The bod (Bad Online Dates) dating app (owned and created by BadOnlineDates.com LLC, founded in 2007) is a geo-location-based and revolutionizes mobile dating by offering new opportunities, choices, and -- most importantly -- hope, all while on a bad date. With the bod app, users can move on from a bad date and potentially meet someone new, in real-time, by enabling their discoverability in "Date Mode." bod is the mop-up crew for all the other dating sites and apps by giving the dater an OK to leave and find someone that's a better match - a plan B.
