Sick of clicking through dozens of “creeps” on Tinder just so you can find a nice guy/gal to connect with? A new dating site feels your pain and has developed a system to try and weed them out for you. The Grade rates users based on how appropriate and respectful their online profiles and messages are so you don’t have to.
Gizmodo reports about the new dating app that pulls a user’s pictures and interests from their Facebook profiles and then grades them on the A – F system. They can also rate users based on their “message quality”. So if a user happens to send you an inappropriate picture or comes on a little too strong, chances are their dating grade will suffer. Message quality is also graded on grammar and spelling (so users best be using spellcheck!).
The Grade’s press release explains the rating process, “Grades are based on entirely objective criteria and are determined by a sophisticated algorithm that analyzes user behavior based on three categories – popularity, responsiveness, and message quality. Users must maintain one of the passing dating "grades," ranging from "A+" to "D," while users who are undesirable or behave poorly will receive a failing "F" grade, and will be expelled from using the app.”
Now if you happen to receive a poor grade that doesn’t mean you’re dating life has to suffer. The Grade allows users to repeal their grade by writing a detailed message about why they think they have been misunderstood and deserve a better grade. Who knows, maybe just the idea of joining a dating site that is based on grades will make everyone be on their best behavior.
