A passing wink could turn into a live encounter. Regarded, a new, somewhat unusual dating site and iPhone app was launched today offering romantic individuals the chance to seek, flirt, make a date with, fall in love with or simply be a friend with some body they have seen or “regarded” at some place at sometime.
Regarded offers individuals the chance to pursue a stolen glance, a smile or just friendly chitchat that had to be cut short because it was at a bus stop or in a queue at the bank or some other place where brief encounters often occur. Dating site users just log in to Regarded, write a brief description of the scene, the precise time, and exact place and, if the other individual does the same thing, they may be lucky enough to make a connection.
Gavin McCormack, the new dating site’s creator, said “we have all been through the experience of being regarded. It could have just been a short smile while walking down a street or a short chat on the bus when coming home from work, leaving us in a quandary as to what could have happened if the encounter had been longer. My own experiences and numerous stories from acquaintances made me think it must be confronting many people and this gave me the idea for the dating website Regarded.”
The Regarded app and website are topped up with features that are quick and easy to use. An important feature includes using Google maps, which easily locates places, being able to place a bookmark of your favourite place and a facility for messaging.
Regarded presents a safe discussion room where you link up with users who have complete control of all of their personal information.
McCormack confirmed that when making a comparison with other online dating sites, the main difference with Regarded is that is secure, enjoyable and, of the greatest importance, it is for those of us who have made a connection with someone at some time and at some place.
The website is committed to maintaining a high standard to make sure the membership has a quality experience. Furthermore, the Regarded app and its website are free for members to use.
