New Dating App Makes You Call Your Matches, Sounds Horrifying

Nobody calls anyone anymore, we all know that.

We get pissed if our mom calls us in 2017, let alone someone calling to casually chat (and he or she is a stranger). A new dating app called Hotline makes you CALL your matches.

The mobile app requires that you have a 5-minute voice call with your prospective partner (thankfully, without using your phone number) before you can message them. It’s a scary concept if you’re shy or hate calls, but the hope is that you’ll quickly find out whether or not the real person is as interesting as their profile.

Am I the only one that sees my phone ringing and immediately thinks “what the fuck is this shit? WHO THE FUCK!?”

The app costs $9 a month, and is a great way to pick up on a person’s anxiety.
