OkCupid Launches CrazyBlindDate App To Help You Get A Date Tonight

By Megan O'Neill 

Tired of all the searching and back-and-forth messaging that goes along with online dating?  OkCupid is cutting out all the work that goes along with meeting that special someone online with the launch of CrazyBlindDate, a new app for Android and iOS that will help you get a hot date (or maybe an insane date) tonight, in just a few taps.

How does it work?  Just let the app know where you want to go and at what time and OkCupid’ll set you up on a “Crazy Blind Date!”  Of course, it’s not completely random—OKCupid will use their wacky dating matchup algorithms to find you the best possible match in your area.  But on a personal note, I’ve met a few dudes in my past OKCupid follies that were *supposed* to be great matches and turned out to be a tad…let’s just say “off.”  Which is why I think it’s fitting that OkCupid opted to call their app CrazyBlindDate.

To give you a little say in who you wind up hitting the town with, when you make a date with CrazyBlindDate, OkCupid will suggest a number of potential dates.  You can see their name, age and a jumbled version of their photo that you can kinda tell what they look like from.  You can also browse users that want to go on blind dates in your area at okcupid.com/crazyblinddate/browse.

Check out some screenshots from the app below and, if you’re single and not doing anything tonight, why not hook yourself up with a hot (or crazy) date?  Worst case, it’ll always make a good story!  And we’d love to hear all about it in the comments below. :-)
