Any user above the age of 18 can create a profile, fill up their details, interests and passions and swipe right on the profiles presented to them via the app. If the profiles swipe them back, a mutual match is created and both can chat via audio, video call or text. Mad dates is therefore a fresh app in the dating ecosystem that aims to make dating fruitful for users by providing them with relevant matches and authentic profiles. We strongly discourage in consensual chat and interactions and provide reporting checkpoints at every step in our app so that our users feel safe.

6. FACILITIES TO BE RENDERED BY THE WEBSITE
Mad Dates app is an online dating platform for those persons who are interested in making new friends with benefits. Any user above the age of 18 can create his/her profile on the app. The user gets to upload their profile picture, cover photo, interests, passions, a brief bio and answer some predefined questions in the app to better describe himself as a person. After the profile is created the user is presented with profiles in his area which have the probability of matching with the user. The user gets to either Swipe Left (if he doesn’t like the profile) or Swipe right (if he likes the profile) or Superlike (if he is really interested in matching with the profile). A match is created if the profile swipes right on the users profile. Only after a mutual match the users can start talking. In the age of virtual dating, it is very much necessary to have an understanding about a new person before they meet on a physical date which is why our quality audio and video call feature comes in handy. The user doesn’t have to reveal personal information like phone number or email to start talking to a potential date. The easy to use interface of Mad Dates can finally provide our users an app that is less complicated and easy to understand. In our future versions we plan on launching this app in all Indian languages too. Our app is filled with fun themes and designs even from real artists where users can appreciate both art and love.
