How it works

We’ve identified the pain-points people experience when trying to make new friends and solved them with 4 simple steps.


icon for 'Your Card'

Your smart introduction card

The world's first profile that automatically adapts itself to show you at your best and connect with whoever is looking at it — inspiring friendships you may not have thought possible.

Authentic

Don’t worry about the perfect line, just talk about who you really are and we’ll make sure your profile always looks it’s best.

Simple

Innovative design makes it a breeze to build up a comprehensive profile of yourself in just a few minutes.

Automated

Your card will automatically choose what to highlight and showcase what’s best based on who’s looking at it to maximise quality connections.

More than skin deep

Real friendships require you to showcase who you are, not just what you look like. We’ve designed friendrequest to make it easy to express yourself.

Personalized

Each card is tailored to highlight attributes of people that are most likey to resonate with you.

Contextual

We think about your schedule and interests when sorting and recommending people in your feed.

Opposites Attract

You don’t always want to meet people just like you, some of our best friendships are with people who are so different to us. We consider this when creating your feed.

Fine tune your feed

We give you the option to only see people of the same sex, whether you’re male, female or non-binary. We keep it opt-in so you can keep control.

No more awkward silences

From breaking the ice to providing useful cues – we help make sure that your matches convert to friendships.

Opt-in

We’ve implemented an opt-in system, which means you only accept conversations from people you’re interested in talking to.

Conversation starters

No more silent chats, we start off every conversation for you with a little ice-breaker to get things going.

Updates and prompts

We send reminders and activity suggestions to you and your friend to help you get to the next step. Whether that’s booking your tickets or remembering when you’re going.

Safety first

With in-app reporting, blocking and in-app chat support, we make sure to keep a high-quality and trusted community.
