Chorus started with a group of women around a dinner table. Half of us were partnered, the other half were single, and we’d all been friends for years. The single ones amongst us were complaining, as usual, about online dating: swiping takes time, messages go ignored, and we’re tired. The partnered women were complaining that they felt left out of the now ever-present world of online dating and wished they could help their single friends find matches.
Friends have always been on the front lines of navigating relationships, there’s no reason to stop that just because it’s moving online. We created Chorus to bring friends back into the dating process. We’re an all female team who understand—on a deeply personal level—that online dating is making us all a little more lonely. And it doesn’t have to be so bad.
