Bleenka releases official Windows Phone app to help you find love

Bleenka

In an age where technology reigns supreme, online dating has skyrocketed in usage. No longer are people meeting face to face out and about, but rather at home in their comforts, while browsing around and communicating with people they've yet to meet. Looking at published photos, reading through populated profile fields, people are using these websites to find their ideal partner.

One such service, Bleenka (www.bleenka.com, a popular dating website in Italy), has released an official Windows Phone app to help you find love on your Windows Phone when out and about.

The completely free service (available both online on the web as well as iOS, Android and now Windows Phone) allows you to check through profiles you find interesting. Sending an anonymous "bleenk" (think blink or rather a wink) to a person you like (along with selecting venues where you'd like to meet) will notify them that you're interested and should they have mutual feelings you're good to go with a date.

While you won't know exactly who you're meeting in person until the date comes around, both the service and yourselves (to a degree through choosing profiles to "bleenk") will help ensure the probability of meeting a person with similar likes and interests is fairly high, so long as their profiles are accurately populated. As always, we recommend caution when meeting folk from online. 

Bleenka App

Bleenka enables you to check out who has sent you bleenks and whether you wish to be a mutual match or not. The Windows Phone app itself is rather nice to use and is well developed with a neat tutorial to get you started. You're able to sign up through Facebook (our favourite social network) or manually, should you not already have an account. 

What ever your thoughts and opinions are regarding online dating, it's a popular choice for many, especially those who are rather shy when it comes to making the first approach. Have you had success with Bleenka? Let us know in the comments.

Free dating sites usually are no better (worse?) than meeting in the physical world. It's better to pay for these services.

Meh. I had my fill of online dating sites in the early 2000s. I met and dated a real creep back in 2001 and haven't ever gone back to the online thing. It's much better to meet a potential mate in person, from my experience. Happy I met my boyfriend that way.

Not the ideal way to meet new people but expands the pool of possibilities. Talking of which, anyone know any other dating sites that have a WP8 app?
