Hio wants to put networking events back on your remote-only calendars

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and the COVID-19 pandemic has surged event cancellations across the country. Tech workforces have found ways to stay productive: back-to-back Zoom calls, work-from-home happy hours and more Twitter threads than anyone asked for. But Jason Craparo, the founder of events platform Hio, wants to put organic, face-to-face networking back on your calendar — in a socially distant, yet compliant, way. Today, Hio launched a virtual lounge and a Network Now ...

Virtual dates and video speed dating: Dating.com Group launches a $50 million corporate venture fund 

The dating startup world is notorious for few exits, and a similarly slim number of buyers. There’s Match Group, which owns Tinder, Hinge and OkCupid, and there’s Spark Networks, which owns Christian Mingle, JSwipe, Jdate and Zoosk. Dating.com Group also owns a slew of dating brands, like Dil Mil, a dating app for South Asians. And it just closed a $50 million corporate venture capital fund to invest in more. Dmitry Volkov, the founder of Dating.com Group, said that he’s looking for startup...

This Dry Shampoo Mist Makes My Sweaty Post-Workout Hair Look Fresh and Clean

Thanks to my superfine hair, stretching the amount of time I can go between washes is a real challenge. By day two, I definitely need a few sprays of dry shampoo - and by day three, the only thing that can camouflage my oily hair is a low bun. Throw working out into the mix, and it's almost impossible for me to go more than a day and a half without shampooing. My typical fitness routine includes yoga, strength training, and plenty of cardio, which means I'm breaking a sweat almost every time I ...

The Surprising Value Of “Bad” Dates, According To Real People

Remember that one date with the “method actor” who didn’t believe in tipping? The one with the stand-up comedian who insisted on recording your back-and-forth for material? The one where your counterpart arrived 27 minutes late, wearing just one flip-flop? Naturally, the list goes on. But here’s a hot take: These dates, albeit “unsuccessful,” have their merit, too. Whether we’re pursuing eternal love, great sex, or solid banter over negronis, our sub-par dates can be just as formative as our...

Gay dating app calls it quits

Chappy is ending its relationship with your phone, which means the only remaining apps for same-sex meetups are now Grindr, Tinder, OKCupid, Bumble, Scruff, Growlr, and if you’re kinky, Christian Mingle. Oh, and the several other smaller ones we’re not listing. In other words, it’s a saturated market out there, and ultimately Chappy couldn’t retain a dating pool big enough to thrive. The gay dating app will be folded into Bumble, which had been an investor since Chappy’s launch in 2017. AdBrid...

Meet the NYC woman getting paid $5,000 to fix clients' dating apps and 'ghost banter' with their matches

Amy Nobile founded Love, Amy in April 2019 to help people find love on dating apps after meeting who she calls "the love of her life" on Bumble post-divorce.
