ABOUT US

Blindfold is the world’s first private dating app to be created by Certified Professional Matchmakers*

Our mission is to help time-starved single people navigate the tricky minefield of dating in cities where social circles are small, and reputations are important.


The idea for Blindfold first surfaced in 2011 when Blindfold’s CEO found herself single, but unwilling to use dating apps to meet men. Being in finance, she was reluctant to be seen by clients and co-workers on these apps. Moreover, some friends of hers had been taking screenshots of people they knew on dating sites and sending them around -- it was totally embarrassing! This further strengthened her resolve not to go online.

She decided to start interviewing people on why they weren’t on dating apps – she knew she couldn’t be the only one who felt this way about online dating. Not surprisingly, most people in Asia identified with her reluctance to date online. Over the next 3 years, she went on to interview more than 500 single people. She dedicated her time to finding out what problems single people were facing, and how she could create something that could help them overcome these problems.

Four years later, through months of hard work and countless late nights, Blindfold was born. We hope you enjoy what we have built, as much as we have enjoyed building it.

FAQ

Blindfold’s basic service is, and will always be, 100% free.

Blindfold is designed to be user-friendly and engaging, without being intrusive. Our users are typically people who:

  • Are too busy to go through endless questions and thousands of profiles on traditional dating sites;
  • Believe that the best potential dates are likely to be introduced by friends;
  • Have higher standards than “Hot or Not”;
  • Prefer to keep their dating lives private -- away from the eyes from acquaintances, clients, and co-workers;
  • Are looking for meaningful friendships and relationships; and
  • Are genuinely single**.
Blindfold matches you with eligible singles in your area, within your desired age range, and are friends of your friends***. We also have a team of Matchmakers screening each profile to control the quality of users, and to increase the accuracy of matching.
  1. At 9am (GMT+8) daily, Blindfold sends you ONE anonymous match.

* Our Matchmakers are experienced and certified by the prestigious Matchmaking Institute in New York.
** Users in Singapore will have their NRIC/FIN numbers verified with Singapore’s Registry of Marriages to ensure they are not currently married (within Singapore).This ensures that Blindfold’s user base is genuinely single.
*** Facebook login required.

Verifying your account with your Identification No. allows us to verify your identity and to ensure that you are legally single. This makes you more credible and trustworthy in the eyes of your matches. As a result, you’ll get more interest from matches.
You should verify your account once you sign up for Blindfold. The verification process takes up to 36 hours. In the meantime, your matches will be able to see that your account is “Pending Verification”.

Your profile is anonymised to the degree that you would like it to be. You may choose a username instead of using your real name, and you can blur or mask your photo the way you like it. All details on your profile are visible to your matches, except

  • your Real Name
  • your email address (if applicable)
  • your exact Date of Birth
  • your Photos (unless you reveal them)

You can view the full profile of your match by tapping on his/her photo on the Match card, or his/her username at the top of the chat room.

The Blindfold button is the round smiley icon at the top right of your Chat Screen. Click it when you are ready to reveal your photos to your match!

As all our users mask or blur their profile photos, both parties not be able to accurately tell what the other looks like when you first meet. To “remove your blindfold”, simply tap the round smiley icon at the top right of your Chat Screen.

Once both parties have clicked the Blindfold button (see Question 7), ALL your photos will be visible to your match.

Unfortunately, not at the moment. Blindfold limits each chat to 14 days to encourage users to make real-life connections (e.g. meet up, exchange phone numbers, facebook details, etc.). The approximate time left for each chat is indicated by the water-level marker on the avatars, and can also be found on the top of the chat screen.

Authenticating through Facebook allows us to match you with friends of your friends. We NEVER post anything on your Facebook account. Please visit our Privacy Policy here for more information.

Yes, you may. However, we will not be able to match you with friends of your friends if you sign up using your email address.

Verifying your email address helps us to ensure that you are a real user. Your account will be automatically deactivated if you do not verify your email address within 3 days.

Blindfold is passionate about creating a community of single people who are trustworthy, friendly, and open, and who want to keep things that way. As such, your role, and your input, is of vital importance to us. You are the key to keeping our community safe and its standards high – we invite you to please report (through the app) any users whom you may suspect have a fake profile, or are being a nuisance/threat to you or other users.
