In Australia, a user blocked on one dating app will be banned across all apps included in the new voluntary code of conduct.

Communications Minister Michelle Rowland

This code, introduced by Match Group, Bumble, Grindr, and other companies, aims to enhance safety by deplatforming offenders. Communications Minister Michelle Rowland and Social Services Minister Amanda Rishworth announced the code, which will be reviewed for effectiveness in nine months. The code stipulates that if a user is banned on one app, they will be banned on all apps owned by the same company. This measure follows findings that 75% of dating app users have experienced some form of sexual violence. The new rules, effective in October, also require regular reporting on blocked accounts and the establishment of an oversight body to ensure compliance.

In South Korea, a new matchmaking trend based on scent has emerged, where young people rely on their primal instincts rather than appearance to find a partner.


Participants input their preferences into an app, which then uses artificial intelligence to match them with potential partners. Once matched, couples are sent to “dark cafes,” where they are asked to choose a scent theme—ranging from ocean and wood to fruits. The couples are then led into a dark room, where they engage in an hour-long conversation in complete darkness, relying on their sense of smell and other heightened senses to establish a connection.

After the initial blind date, participants must decide whether they want to meet in the light, exchange contact information to meet later, or leave the experience as a memory. The overwhelming majority choose to meet immediately.

Fans of this new scent-based dating approach have noted its ability to alleviate anxiety about appearance and free participants from typical visual judgments, encouraging deeper connections instead.

6 secrets to conquering the US market: 8 Years of experience in one post


I. Content is King.

Traffic in the US has always been the most expensive. Right now, with the upcoming elections, both Biden and Trump are spending $10 million a month on Facebook alone. CPM has risen by 10% and won’t drop until after the elections, with Black Friday and Christmas Sales following immediately. Paid advertising should be your ace in the hole, not your main strategy.

2. Omnichannel approach.

This isn’t unique to the US but is most critical there. Americans are like little trusting children who need to be led by the hand. If you let go of an American and your competitor lures them away with a “free ice cream,” that’s your fault. The decision-making process in simple dating e-commerce, aimed at emotional purchases, is moving towards B2B complexity with its Gartner diagrams. Your brand needs to be mentioned everywhere—from Reddit and Quora to Google Maps.

3. The Website and App must convert.

Don’t focus on aesthetics and animations. Use the services and design solutions that your audience is familiar with.

A simple example: a test checkout on Stripe has a significantly higher conversion rate than any new payment system. Whom do you trust more and how will you pay? Through a service that looks like all the others or through a new, unfamiliar service?

4. The American Dream instead of a problem.

We are used to selling through the PAS framework: identifying a customer’s problem and providing a solution. In the US, the American Dream is still alive; the main framework here is JTBD, which sells how your product will lead the customer to their ultimate dream.

Speak the customer’s language. The perfect copy for an American is text that a fifth-grader can understand or you can comprehend if woken up at 4 AM. An American is like a child who needs to be led by the hand to the goal.

You need a local copywriter. ChatGPT and especially ClaudeAI are excellent for writing briefs for humans, but everyone can tell AI-generated text from human writing. AI writes in clichés: elevate, seamless, delve, unleash, transformative. These words are overused and don’t convert.

5. Channels.

There are many more than we think. Apps take off on Snapchat, products for women on Pinterest.

6. Creatives aren’t really creative.

Don’t try to design Vogue-level static images. You need to blend into the feed. UGC shot on an iPhone gives the best conversion rates. It could be a meme or a street podcast.

Fox Hunters Club dating app launched in New York

A new dating app, Fox Hunters Club, has launched in New York, catering to “millennial women seeking serious relationships with older men.”

Fox Hunters Club marked its first IRL event with a launch party at the Samuel Tilden Mansion in Manhattan, home to the prestigious National Arts Club, setting the tone for what users can expect from the app.

The invite-only event was attended by representatives from the fashion, music, technology, and various other industries.

“The Samuel Tilden Mansion was the perfect location for our New York launch, reflecting the elevated and thoughtful experience we promote for our members,” said Brownie Marie, founder of Fox Hunters Club and a renowned journalist. “This was the first of many IRL events, setting the tone for what participants can expect as we expand the app’s target area and offerings.”

The Fox Hunters Club dating app describes itself as “one of a kind, designed for millennial women seeking loving, non-transactional relationships with Gen X and older men.”

The app launched in the New York area on April 24 and is available for download on the App Store and Google Play. In the coming months, the app will expand to additional markets, with plans to eventually cover the entire U.S.
