FAQs

What is Bloom?

Bloom is a consent-forward social & dating community that helps you meet new friends and partners organically through shared events & experiences. Our events are by local producers and also include 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.

How does scheduling work?

When you sign up for Bloom, we ask you where you are interested in meeting people. You can edit these preferences in your profile. Each week, we offer several events and Blooms to choose from, and you can add yourself to the waitlist of any that work for you. If you share your availability by 10 PM on Tuesday, we'll do our best to invite you and others you've 💜-ed to an event that weekend.

How does matching work?

Every day, we offer you five suggestions of people in the community that we think you might like to meet. You can tell us who you'd like to meet by tapping 💜. Your suggestions are based on the preferences you share with us. When possible, we suggest people whose availability lines up with yours that week. When we are choosing who to invite we take into account who you 💜-ed and who 💜s you, and we aim to get as many people who want to meet each other together.

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. Once we see a lot of interest, we'll go live!
