A New Dating App Where Men Are Nominated to Join

Want to date someone that your friends can vouch for? Download Jess, Meet Ken.

When I was single I’d constantly ask friends, “Can you hook me up with some friends?” They’d give me a blank stare and shrug, “Sorry, most of them are married.”

There was one time where I dated a friend of a friend’s boyfriend. He wasn’t my type, but I gave him a shot because he was nice enough – and I needed to date someone.

That was a long, long, long, long time ago, before dating apps existed. Or the iPhone! Now, dating is at the touch of your fingertips. Still, don’t you want to date someone that your friends can vouch for? If so, there’s a new dating app where the men on the site must be “nominated” by a female to join. That app is Jess, Meet Ken.

After a 2014 launch in Boston, Jess, Meet Ken is now launching in New York City. And New Yorkers need the help! I have to say that the concept is pretty unique, if not brilliant. Having users nominate others to join the app “pulls together a more exclusive offering of both men and women who are on the site with the real intentions to meet and date,” said founders, Ken and Jess.

Yes, Ken and Jess are real people! Married for several years and proud parents of three kids, they met online through a former dating site that had a similar feature. So, take it from them – it works!
