Date without the pressure of hooking up: Peekawoo is the app for you

This female-fueled, Filipina-made app brings old-fashioned courtship into modern dating.

They say the way people meet and date now is so different from the way it used to be, maybe 10 years ago. Today, you download an app. You "collect" people to meet, each one an option. You begin getting to know each other by chatting and not through face-to-face conversation. The chat gets steamy, and before you know it, you are talking about sex instead of each other.

Does this "dating" style make you feel safe? Does it enable you to really get to know a potential lifelong partner?

Well, maybe "lifelong" is a little too long and too soon, especially for the younger people. But at the end of the day it boils down to intention and objective. Why are you meeting people in this manner? What do you want?

Peekawoo founder and CEO Valenice Balace knew that this was something she didn't want.

"My friends and I complained about how dating wasn't the way it was before — how we go to the movies to a dinner date and the guy brings the girl home to her house," Valenice mused. "Now, it goes from meeting someone online, going to a bar or a condo, hooking up, and then simply moving on to the next person."

She did not want to be part of the hookup culture, so she took matters into her own hands: in September 2013, Valenice launched Peekawoo. The dating startup came to be only with a core team of three and one investor.

"We know our customers because we are them. There's a sense of emotional responsibility to it, thus we focus on women's need in an online dating platform," Valenice said.

Before you go and download Peekawoo, here are things to know about the app:

  • Peekawoo is under startup incubator Kickstart Ventures.
  • Peekawoo is wholesome and fun. It is no place for inappropriate messages and sexual innuendos.
  • The iOs app filters suggestions based on the user's basic information and preferences instead of location. To match and chat with someone, users need to answer three out of five questions correctly.
  • Peekawoo also organizes events like speed dates, mixers, and movie screenings to further connect with its users.
  • Over 25,000 users have tried Peekawoo via web, three investors are backing up the project, and the team has expanded from three to eight twenty-something females (plus their male CTO Kevin Bennett)

"We're an all-girl team with the skills, perspective, and values to push forward with this," says Valenice. Peekawoo also really reflects on each girl that is part of the team."


So, what do you think about this app?  :hihi:

FakeTalk na lang. Ayos iyon. Kahit hindi siya real, turuan lang iyon. Pwede siya makadate. Hindi nga siya real human. A.I. application kase iyon kaya maganda siya. Huwag lang seryosohin dahil hindi siya real human. Meron iba kase feel na feel tao talaga ang kausap which is hindi.

Ang hook up culture ay sa mundo ng mga polytheist ang meron nun o majority celebration ng isang event ng Goddess. Babae po kase e. Ang courting culture talaga, tama, panlalake talaga. Courting culture na preferably sa mga monotheist and lahat nakatoka sa guy while girl ay waiting lang.

For me, hook up ang akin dahil equal ang men and women doon pagdating sa love and relationship. Maganda doon ay kinoconfirm ang isang tao kung kayo o hinde unlike sa courting ay susuyuin ng guy ang girl at si girl ay nag aantay. Kapag babae ang una nag-initiate, sa sexual preference ay malalait na wala sa oras. Ang sasabihin ay keyso pangit, desperada o ano.


Hindi ako.

Ngayon, baka meron na naman mag reak kung bakit sinisisi ko ang filipino culture. Wala ako sinisisi. Baka meron na naman kase sumulpot. Ayoko lang.

Karamihan gumagawa ng hook up ay babae though lalake din but masarap kase for me sapagkat yung social influence, ang abstract nun is pambabae. Sa lalake ay courting talaga though meron babae pero parang iba ang tingin. Ang abstract kase ng ganyan klaseng courting, inpluwensya panlalake talaga.

Hook up culture ako.
