What is Bloom?

Bloom is a consent-forward social & dating community that helps you meet new friends and partners organically through shared events & experiences. We list events from local event producers and we also offer curated group dates in parks called "Blooms". Our app allows you to create a profile, see suggested people, and 💜 people you want to meet. You tell us which events you're interested in and we'll help you connect with people you want to meet, before, during, and after each events.

Who is Bloom for?

We welcome everyone 18+ who shares our community values. Our community tends to lean a bit alternative. We welcome all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship identities including monogamy, ethical non-monogamy, and kink. You are welcome here.

When are you coming to my city?

Soon! We are determining which cities to launch next based on sign-ups. If you want to see us live in your city, share us with your friends and have them sign-up, and let us know about event organizers in your area who you think should list their events on Bloom (you can email intros to events@joinbloom.community). Once we see a lot of interest, we'll go live!

How do I join?

First, download our app from the App Store or Google Play. Like other dating apps, you can 💜 people and get matches. You can also join events - with your mutual 💜s, or solo - and find people who are interested in the same events and experiences as you.

How much does Bloom cost?

Right now, it's free! We aim to work with the community to determine fair and reasonable pricing.

What should I expect at these events?

Each event has a description that will help you set expectations. We partner with event organizers to bring you a diverse collection of events to choose from, like live music and comedy, pub crawls, picnics, parties, festivals, workshops, and more. We also offer Blooms, which are curated group dates. Right now, all our Blooms are socially-distanced and in parks. Each Bloom has 6-10 people and a facilitator. Bloom activities include guided conversations to get to know people and unfacilitated time to chill. You'll get the most out of your Bloom if you come curious with few expectations.
