Tinder founder funds sex tips app Lover
Sean Rad, the Tinder founder, has funded a new app Lover.
The main goal of the Lover app is to provide help to couples that struggle with sexual difficulties. Their advice is delivered through personalizing content based on the results of a Myers-Briggs-esque quiz
“It is strange that there are such taboos around sex when it is something we all do…whether we enjoy ourselves or not. We think it is time to start the conversation around this important aspect of our health,” said sex psychologist and co-founder of Lover, Dr. Britney Blair to TechCrunch. “Almost 50% of women and 40% of men have a sexual complaint . . . [but] most people don’t realize how common and treatable their issues are.”
The ‘grandfather of online dating’ reveals the 3 crucial questions that can predict long-term compatibility
Sam Yagan, the OKCupid founder, shared the three main questions that could predict whether a couple would last, according to data from OKCupid:
- Do you enjoy horror movies?
- Have you traveled alone in a foreign country for fun?
- Have you ever wanted to chuck it all and live on a sailboat?
How two matchmakers won a Nobel Prize
In the 60s, two researchers David Gale and Lloyd Shapley decided to explain pairing people up through math.
There, they created an algorithm named ‘Gale-Shapley’ algorithm. This deferred acceptance algorithm draws a system where everyone can find a person they most prefer from among those who prefer them.
Later in the 90s, an economist Alvin Roth applied the Gale-Shapley algorithm for the National Residency Match Program so it would produce more stable matches between new doctors and hospitals. Which then yielded good results.
But the real breakthrough happened in 2004. When Alvin Roth developed a new matchmaking algorithm using the Gale and Shapley’s work to help transplant patients find donors.
This new matchmaking principle got Shapley and Roth the Nobel Prize in 2012.
