A brand new dating app wants to hook you up with a very specific type of partner.
"20 Dating" is a brand new dating app, described by site creator David Minns as the "world’s 1st extreme age gap dating site," where users can only match with someone 20 years younger or older than themselves, the New York Post reports.
Minns explained that his desire to create the site came from his desire to end the stigma in dating people significantly older or younger than themselves.
He said of the new platform, "Trying to connect with someone more than 20 years older/younger on a product like Tinder or Bumble is at best going to end up with a lot of rejection. Everyone knows where they stand on 20 — and you cannot even take a sneaky look at someone with a 19-year gap. It’s like being socially distanced by 20 years."
Dating 20 has no swiping or any barriers to communication, which means that the algorithm allows all users with the appropriate age gap to instantly contact one another.
"If you want to date someone much younger than yourself then 20 is the best place to be," the site's FAQ section states. "Finding an 18 or 20 year old interested in a 40 year old on a 'standard' dating site could be a real challenge. At 20 you know everyone is open to a larger age gap."
Of the few hundred users already registered with the site, 66% are male, 32% are female, and 2% are transgender.
