Filter Off, a video speed dating app, is organizing a series of events for single individuals living in the DC area to meet each other every Friday.
“The Washington, DC video speed dating event is the most effective way for men and women to meet. Whether you are recently single, new in town, or have been single for a while, this event is for you,” the event brief says.
All you have to do to attend the speed dating events is download the Filter Off app onto your device and be a single DC-area resident.
The DC-specific sessions will provide users with three video-chatting dates, each of them 90 seconds long.
The app’s system is based on real-world speed dating, pairing people according to their age, location, height and education preferences.
Dubbing itself as “the worlds first video dating app,” Filter Off was launched in February 2020 as a platform aiming to provide authentic human communication by eliminating the possibilities of catfishing and exchanging edited selfies.
“It isn’t about going through all the mechanisms of swiping and messaging back and forth, but being up-front and seeing if you are a good fit with this other person or not,” said Zach Schleien, founder of Filter Off, said in an interview with Your Story back in April.
Filter Off has a strict policy on inappropriate behavior. It promises to swiftly remove the offender from the app upon a user’s complaint.
