Have you ever gone on a couple dates with someone, and decided you REALLY like them, only to find out on date 5 or 6 that... they have no intentions of having kids?
Well, now there's a dating app that would completely remove that awkward conversation - and the unfortunate let down of realizing someone you really like doesn't want the same things as you.
The app is called heybaby, and it describes itself as the app for those "tired of the dating game" and "ready to start a family." The apps "about" page even goes on to say, "if you're a decent human being with parent potential (or have kids already), this app was made for you."
Basically, the app is made for people who KNOW they want kids, or who already have one or more kids and are looking for someone who is welcoming to that!
My personal favorite thing about the app is that it was created by three dads! The app is only a few weeks old, but the data so far shows that people using the app are generally older than the average you'd find on apps like Tinder of Bumble. There is a higher percentage of users ages 30-44 than there is of those younger.
To weed out people who aren't serious about expanding their family, heybaby asks users to take the pledge that states:
- I want or have kids
- I'm tired of the dating game
- I'm ready to put flakes and hookup artists behind me
I LOVE the idea for this app! Obviously I'm happily married with two kids of my own (and considering a third!) but if you're someone who is actively open to having kids soon - or becoming a step parent down the line, then I think you should GO FOR IT with this app!
