There are two kinds of people. One who knows how to grab a relationship from Tinder, the other does not, and not even gets noticed. The 26-year-old single entrepreneur Tom Thurlow devised for the latter group a new app called Uglyr. With this app, people who have been rejected or swiped left on Tinder can find a date. On Uglyr looks do not matter.
Thurlow says judging people on Tinder relies solely on looks. The new Uglyr app is divided into two sections: in the first, you can sign if you are looking for a relationship, the other is for “horny uglies who are looking for nothing more than a bit of no-strings fun.”
Attractive vs. Ugly
The Briton use mostly Tinder for dating but bachelor Tom Thurlow said he doesn’t like Tinder and would rather use Ulgyr to get a date or fling.
“Being attractive isn’t an important thing in a relationship at all. With Tinder, people will just swipe left, swipe left, swipe left. The harsh reality of it is that you will only be successful if you’re attractive.”
said the inventor.
“Ugly people don’t get a chance to show their personalities at all. People are judging you solely by your looks. People see it as a game. They log on every day and do their swiping but nothing comes of it because the users are so fickle.”
According to Thurlow, people see Tinder more like a game than an app where true love can be found.
“With Uglyr, ugly people will get dates – as will attractive people who don’t want to date people just because of their looks. There is no swiping or judging on looks. You have to message people and you have to start a conversation with them to find out what they’re about.”
Only in England
He hopes his app will be able to attract old and serious users.
“Uglyr.com pledges to be different by offering genuine singles a home to date, find love or hook-up with others who aren’t fixated on superficial qualities.”
Uglyr is currently only available in the UK.
