)-- With self-isolation the new norm, the world of online dating is seeing a surge. WooPlus, the dating app for curvy people, has seen a significant increase in users. Registrations jumped more than 50% this week compared to last, making it the number one trending dating app on Google Play.
With COVID-19 sweeping the globe, it’s estimated that 1.7 billion people have been ordered to stay at home. As such, loneliness has become an increased cause for concern. WooPlus has announced significant redesign updates to keep members' hearts connected while social distancing. Not only are profiles gaining greater exposure through the “moment” feature, the new “say hi” feature allows users to skip the match process and jump straight into conversation with one another. Another user, Alice, commented: “I felt sooo loved, though they are far away for now.”
Neil Raman, the founder, and CEO of WooPlus, commented, "Adapting to life indoors can be tough. Online dating has emerged as practically one of the only ways to meet new people. We’ve recently updated our app to help users stay connected, make friends, enjoy dating, and find love, to help beat the loneliness associated with isolation. It's been incredible to see people interact and lift each other up and to feel supported during this time.
"Our aim is to help our community foster lively connections and strong relationships, during this time of crisis. It’s for this reason that WooPlus is currently ranked as the top trending dating app on Google Play."
According to a recent survey of over 2,200 users on the WooPlus dating app, 33% are currently waiting out the virus before meeting matches in person for a first date. One user, Elise explained, "I’m not meeting anybody until they've given the all-clear. You’ve got to be really worth it for me to risk this virus for you."
Activity on the dating app is expected to surge in the coming days following the boost in registrations.
