The bod App’s Geo-Location Discoverability Saves The Night By Offering a Plan B to People On Bad Dates

LOS ANGELES, CA – We can probably agree that not all dates go as expected. Why should you have to sit through another bad date? The bod app is the perfect way to ditch the dud and move on with your night! Everyone has suffered through a bad date at some point in their life, but rarely there’s a Plan B; now with the bod (Bad Online Dates) app, users can ditch the bad date and potentially meet someone new, and in real-time within minutes. The app has been in beta and is now officially launching to the public today, for both iOS and Android.

With bod, daters can now do something previously unheard of while on a bad date – find someone new to move on to, turning a bad date into a potential lifelong love connection and saving the night.

“With modern technology’s capabilities, the dating industry has a responsibility to help people make the best use of their time, money, and energy – things that all get wasted while on a bad date,” says Jennifer Kelton, a dating industry vet and Founder & CEO of bod. “This app gives control back to every dater.”

Once the user has installed the bod app they will now have new options to leave a bad date, and find a new close-by match in their vicinity, and now with geo-location technology it turns the rest of your night into a potentially good date, and maybe even a life long soul mate by turning one bad date into a real-time experience that you now can control.

Once installed on a mobile device, bod has an option for “Date Mode.” When that is enabled, users become discoverable, making them visible to other local app users (radius defined in settings), even those not currently on a bad date. “Date Mode” also allows users to drive the search themselves. Once mutual interest is established, users receive push notifications; more importantly, they have a reason to believe that the end of their bad date is just the start of something new and exciting – an escape plan for the night that may turn into finding that connection they’re longing for! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3: 1- Match, 2 – Message, 3 – Meetup.

The bod app offers additional features for daters to enjoy. When “Date Mode” is disabled, it functions as a standard matchmaking app, connecting users within the bod network. In addition, for users who feel shy or awkward when meeting new people, the app offers a wide range of icebreakers and conversation starters that go beyond the standard “What do you do?” fare.

“Roughly 11% of Americans use online dating and apps – that means millions of people get stuck on some potentially very bad dates,” says Kelton. “The more time people spend on bad dates, the worse they feel about dating and their prospects. The bod app gives users an opportunity no other site or app can provide: a redesigned approach to dating, one that returns control of their bad date night to users by introducing new matches in real time, and without all the time sucking of texting and emailing.”
The bod app is owned and created by LLC, founded in 2007 that has been a staple and pioneer in the dating space. The app is available on iTunes and Google Play.
