You get one match every day with the Spin of a lucky wheel which is filled with great matches tailormade just for you. With less than 24 hours to go you need to chat with your match and see if you have any chemistry because when the time runs out, the match disappears forever... unless, that is, you both hit the Extend Chat button.
But there is a huge catch, and its a real Cinderella moment too! You wont know if your match wants to extend the chat with you until the time runs out. If either of you does not Extend the chat, the match disappears; out of sight, out of mind.
If you both Extend the Chat, youre in for a treat, because in Extended Chats you can express yourself with photos and GIFs and we are currently working on multiple other fun ways to help you get to know each other!
WE ARE BATTLING GHOSTING
While ghosting (the act of disappearing or stopping all communications) is a massive problem in online dating, the reason it exists is that people are initially drawn to each other but then the feelings fade, and its just easier to bail out than face the problem. This leaves one person wondering what they did wrong, and both persons feeling bad.
The One is designed to battle ghosting because matches, by default, disappear from the list when the time runs out unless both parties are excited to see if they can take things further. This leaves no guesswork to either user, no stringing-along for days, and usually less hurt feelings in the long run.
Furthermore, this takes the pressure off users. You can initiate a chat and take chances because you know the match is gone if the conversation doesnt take off and youll get another one tomorrow.
Your matches are based on multiple factors ranging from age, location, time of day, historical data, and numerous other things that help our algorithm prepare a good match for you. The One is a conversation-first dating app, meaning that our primary focus is getting you and your match conversing and getting to know each other. Because of this, your matches are optimized to increase the chance of chatting.
