Love color dating
The majority of site users are within the United States in major cities like Los Angeles and New York.
Compared to the artificial intelligence-driven product Tran used to work on, Color Dating is no technological feat. Plenty of dating apps already allow you to state a racial preference, but Color Dating’s main draw is community, he said, bringing together people who don’t mind or who prefer interracial dating.
After three months, Color Dating has nearly 40,000 user profiles.
After being selected for Y Combinator’s 2014 class and working on creating an artificial intelligence-fueled chatbot, Vu Tran decided three months ago to scrap that project and create Color Dating, an app for interracial dating.
It’s been said that when entrepreneurs create something, they are often their own target audience, and for Tran it was a personal pivot.
Originally born in Vietnam, Tran has lived in black neighborhoods in Newark and Tennessee, a predominantly Russian neighborhood in Seattle, and parts of rural Indiana.
These experiences led to more understanding, and Tran thinks that conversations with people from many races can help others, too.
That is because people are becoming more liberal or open-minded…” In some circles, there’s a theory that racial harmony and the reduction of racism will be achieved as interracial couples continue to make babies, until the world reaches some sort of light brown blend of multiple races.
That’s an attitude Tran said he took into consideration when creating Color Dating.
When that doesn’t happen, it can create a terrible experience for certain groups of people.
Apps made due to frustration with the Tinder experience include Bumble, made specifically for women, and Bae, for African Americans. knowledge his company has accrued may be applied to Color Dating someday, but for now, it’s an app that was made in a weekend.
Tran said he wants Color Dating to remove the taboo that some people still feel about interracial dating and to make life easier for people, like a friend Tran grew up with in Seattle who likes black men but whose father said he’d disown her if she dated someone black.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
