“I wasn’t looking for love or anything, I was just using Fika for fun. Then he started chatting with me for a week about literally everything; and we decided to meet. We started dating and this Valentine was our first Valentine”.
Q: How did you meet your partner?
One day, I was on Facebook and found that Fika was looking for talents to join one of their videos. Fika was not launched back then I remember, but I was very curious so I decided to sign up for it. I was picked by the main guy at first but he then decided that we were not a match, so I was still… single. That’s how I heard about this new dating app – Fika. My friends also recommended it to me so I decided to give it a try.
Q: What was your first impression of your partner?
It is the same old “we met on dating app” kind of story, but I wasn’t asked to send nudes at all. It is quite rare to meet people like him because nowadays, people only go on dating apps for sex. I found him cute, easy to talk to, kind and respectful so I was having a crush on him while on Fika. I believe that you’ll eventually attract people who have the same kind of energy.
Q: How was your first date?
I remember that on our first date, he told me that my profile photos look a bit too fancy so we might not get along, but he still wanted to ask me out. Surprisingly, I said yes. When we first met, both of us felt very comfortable, like we did not have to pretend to be somebody else; things just went very well and natural. That was when I knew that I made the right decision.
Q: Do you feel embarrassed by the fact that you used a dating app to find your partner?
I don’t think it’s a bad thing to use dating apps. Whether it is Fika or other apps, dating apps are made to help people find and meet new people. If you’re lucky, you can definitely find a partner. I am an open-minded person and I believe that whether it’s good or bad depends on your personal mindset. When we step into something new, we should clearly define what we want, what we are looking for and have certain boundaries. Using a dating app does not mean that you are being desperate or anything – you should do what you want! Give yourself a chance, experience new things, why should you be worried too much about it?
Q: What else do you expect from a dating app like Fika?
I heard that Fika is going to launch a new dating spot suggestion feature for couples soon. Luckily, both me and my partner have not deactivated our account *laugh. The team at Fika shared about this to us and we are looking forward to it; it involves 2 things that I love: going out for coffee and discounts *laugh. Otherwise, I think Fika is a good option for those who are looking for real connections and are sick of fake profiles.
Single young people should definitely give it a try, you might “get lucky” – like me!
