    I’ve not been a fan of dating apps. But I believe the ones we have are OK.

    That’s why I like Mark nd the whites. They Don’t wait for someone else to come from behind and render them obsolete. They’re always thinking of the next idea nd improvement. Kudos

    It’s really nice to hear this news.. I really buy this idea, but hopefully it will secure out privacy as well. If yes, why don’t we accept this idea..
    Kuddos to the developers.
