Why 8dates

Life's too short for boring romance

When it comes to the end of one's life, it's the relationships and meaningful moments with loved ones that we cherish most.

Right now, there's a void in the heart of romance. We've heard from hundreds of people who are looking for an option beyond fast dating apps like Tinder and Bumble. 

How is it different than other dating apps?

8dates is about "slow-dating." It's not a hookup app. This application was designed for people looking for a long-term partner. Most dating apps don't provide additional service after you match. 8dates curates your romantic experience by helping suggest relevant dates.

Does it cost money?

8dates is absolutely free to use. If you're enjoying the app and want to use advanced search filters (search by height, whether or not people drink or smoke) you can pay to access 8dates plus.

What about any privacy concerns?

The security of your personal data is very important to us. We back up your data in Microsoft's cloud, where they use the most advanced data security protocols in the world.
