Boston Venture Studio Launches Dating App that Schedules Dates within Days

Lola Dating, a revolutionary new dating app that matches users based on mutual availability to streamline the process of getting on a date, will launch in Boston on May 28th.

 Lola Dating, a revolutionary new dating app that matches users based on mutual availability to streamline the process of getting on a date, will launch in Boston on May 28th. Lola is the only dating app that requires users to enter their availability over the next five days before browsing the app for potential dates. The app only puts people into a chat when they are ready to go on a date. The company also has a patent pending on a post-date feedback system that will improve the algorithm used to make matches. 

Lola was launched by Boston Venture Studio, led by Paul English, co-founder of the popular travel site Kayak, in response to overwhelming consumer dissatisfaction with current dating apps. Thousands of single adults who have joined a waiting list will be invited to use the app starting May 28th. Unlike any other dating platform on the market, Lola matches people based on dating preferences and mutual availability, and, using patent-pending technology, solicits post-date feedback to improve the quality of future matches. The innovative app aims to get people out on dates within days and build a community of great daters. 

Founded by Paul English and Rachel Cohen in 2023, Lola was born out of a desire to solve a real pain point with dating apps: getting stuck in an endless loop of swiping and chatting. Cohen pitched the idea to Paul on their second date, and the rest is history. "Our aim is to fix everything wrong with traditional dating apps," explains co-founder Paul English. "We’ve created an app that is about dating more and chatting less. Traditional dating apps take weeks to get a date, ours takes days.”

Lola is the only dating app that matches compatible individuals who are available and ready to go on a date within the next five days. Users choose the days they are free to go out on a date that week, and Lola will show people they are compatible with who want to go out on those same days. By exclusively matching daters with mutual availability, Lola ensures users spend less time swiping and more time going on meaningful dates.

Also at the core of Lola’s groundbreaking approach is its unique feedback system, aimed at improving users’ dating pool and their dating skills. Lola prompts both parties to indicate if they would date the other person again and provide constructive feedback on the date, a first of its kind in the industry. "By fostering a community of good daters, we're creating a platform where people can meet online with the intention of going on a date in real life to find out if there is chemistry," says Rachel Cohen, co-founder of Lola.

Following the date, users are required to indicate if they plan to go on a second date, and to select what they liked and disliked about the date from a predefined list of keywords, such as “Intelligent”, “Funny”, “Late” or “Rude to staff”. Using machine learning, this information improves the algorithm, which leads to better matches, not just for the individual that provided the feedback, but for everyone on the platform. 

After every five dates, users can opt-in for access to anonymous feedback from their previous matches, further enhancing the matchmaking process, and improving its matchmaking algorithm. Lola is the only dating app that gives users anonymous feedback from past dates to improve their dating game. 

Additionally, Lola's stringent safety measures and commitment to creating a trusted community provide users with peace of mind while navigating the dating landscape. Lola stands as the only app that employs rigorous screening, ongoing monitoring, and proactive rejection of malicious entities through advanced security features. Paul English added: “Our number one priority is creating a safe and trusted community. We will actively monitor the platform for ‘bad actors’ who will be removed if the bad behavior is not corrected.”

Lola's launch in Boston marks the beginning of a new era in dating. While the app is currently available for download and consumers are encouraged to create their unique profile now, matchmaking will commence on May 28th. Initially available within a 75-mile radius of Boston, Lola has plans for expansion to other major cities, including New York, in the near future.
