We do not know whether there is something more obvious than the heart rate to determine whether or not we are attracted to someone. A new dating application envisages exactly that.
It’s called “Once” and it does exactly what you think it does: helps you find a potential partner based on the effect it has on your heart. Literally.
Once connects to a Fitbit device or any Android Wear and monitors your pulse while you look on someone’s profile. It shows you how it changes in real time, but it seems that you will be able to share this with the potential partner in the official version of the application.
Also, perhaps the most interesting feature is that Once sends notifications to the two users when their hearts beats accelerated while looking at each other’s profile. In addition, another good part is that Once shows only one potential partner each day. The goal, according to Business Insider, to slow down the dating process and to make it a little less superficial, to the extent permitted.
It will not be as Tinder, where you can have compatibility with tens of people every day, without any without any criteria that is worth taking into account. Once it is available, for now, only in Europe, but already has 600,000 active users, according to TechCrunch.
