SCMP - Mar 22 - "Online dating is the future in China," said Eric Zhou, founder of Slow and former head of global operations at TikTok. Zhou's app Slow officially launched at the end of 2020, around a year after its beta version first came out. Slow only lets each user view 48 profiles a day. And instead of having users swipe, Slow asks them to "like" a particular feature on each profile. The app currently has ~100K users. HIMMR, which stands for "How I Met Mr Right", is another online dating start-up. HIMMR has attracted 80K active users and organized ~300 physical events in eight cities.
