It is an incredible read—seriously one of the best pieces I’ve read this month—but I’m stuck on this section where Yoshida meets Ohlala founder Pia Poppenreiter and learns why Ohlala is “better” than other dating apps: According to Poppenreiter, Ohlala seeks to improve upon two perceived flaws that Tinder and other dating apps often fall into.

As more results-oriented users of Tinder or Ok Cupid can attest, if you’ve logged on with the objective to meet up with someone that night, you can often be left frustrated.
You browse a slew of candidates who’ve uploaded a picture (with options to chat, call, or video) and ranked themselves on qualities such as emotional stability and openness to experience (based off a personality test, which may not be that great for dating, but who cares if you’ll never dating).
Nina, 22, for instance, describes herself as “a sweet lil loaf of bread,” who considers herself “controlled, stress free” and “sociable, enthusiastic.”Then you would “show your interest” in Nina by initiating a conversation with her.
