What problem do you solve (or want to solve) ?

hostd is different from other mobile dating sites/apps in two ways. First, our users post specific dates with a time, location and activity that other users can accept. Once the date is confirmed by both sides, they're offline and on a date. It's really that simple. Second, we charge no monthly fees. Users pay a dollar if they host a date that someone accepts, or for a dollar they can direct a date invitation to a specific user. Essentially, you pay us only when you use us. We also don't require you to spend 3 hours creating a profile and answering endless questions to get started. We don't try to match users up based on information we guess might make them compatible. Our goal is to get people online and offline as quickly as possible, so that they can focus on what's really make-or-break in dating - meeting face to face.


I am a lawyer by trade, but will be launching a mobile dating app called "hostd" this summer.
