CREATOR - Feb 13 - New dating apps and sites are helping people find love in some rather unconventional ways. Ona lets users connect with specialists to help them get better at dating. Hater dating app matches people based on things they can't stand. Ferndate helps people put their best image forward. The team also sets up a professional photo shoot for people. Blur, the location-based dating app keeps the profile pictures out of focus until users answer some simple questions that measure personality, interests, and compatibility. After answering five to seven questions, they can clearly see their potential match. Justin Jia, founder of Blur, also wants dating to be fun. The app is "built like a game," modeled after Buzzfeed-style quizzes with questions like "Are you a cat person or a dog person?" Launched last December, the platform already has ~2K users.
