The only dating app designed for dating

Intentional dating

The Round is built for intentional dating, and intentional dating only. No endless chatting, collecting matches for validation, drug dealers, or attention-seeking. From our brand messaging to our core app design, we support daters who are serious about meeting others to have meaningful dating experiences.


When you view another person’s profile during The Round, you can be sure that person is also viewing your profile at the same time. No more wondering when — or if — that hottie is ever going to see your profile.

One match at a time

The small handful of most attractive profiles on dating apps get more matches than they know what to do with. The most attractive women’s profiles on Tinder match with nearly every man they swipe right on, and the most attractive men’s profiles match with about one in three women.

A real date as the end-state

The Round’s matchmaking process ends with a planned date, at a specific place and time (including virtual dates).

Feedback loops

Successful dating requires learning. With each date, you learn more about your preferences and patterns, with the goal of finding progressively better matches. You tell your friends and family about what you liked and didn’t like about your date — but what about the matchmaker?

Interested in redefining dating?

It’s time to dump traditional dating apps. We’re looking for like-minded people to help us on this mission of making tech work for us ー not the other way around. If you have an interest in the future of dating, drop us a line at or We’d love to chat.
