Conchu is an app for getting dates without having to match or chat first, thus reducing the time and effort it normally takes you to get a date online (or “time-to-date”, as we like to call it). Read the details here.
The registration process is a bit longer than other dating apps, why?
To use Conchu other users must be able to view your profile and date, and decide whether or not they’d like to go out with you.
This means that –in addition to your profile pictures– you need to tell people about yourself so they can decide, and this takes a bit longer than with other dating apps you might use.
For example, if you’re inviting someone to a restaurant, it’s helpful to know if they have any food restrictions (as might be the case with vegans or vegetarians), or if they dislike smoking areas.
The more Conchu users know about your tastes and preferences, or the type of date you are looking for, the better they can decide if they’d like to meet you. On the flipside, if you’re posting dates or asking out 1-on-1, knowing more about the users who catch your eye helps make sure you and your date have a great time.
When do I start chatting with the person I’ll go on a date with?
When the date is accepted, you will be able to see each other’s email and phone number so you can talk.
Who do I see in the app?
You only see people who live in your city –you can change it– and are sexually compatible with. You can also see Conchu’s ambassadors and team regardless of your city.
Now, if you know their nick or username you can find them by tapping “search people” and typing the username. This is useful to know what your friends are doing.
Remember users can block you if they decide to. If this happens, you won’t be able to see them.
What sexual and gender options can I find in Conchu?
At Conchu we accept diversity as far as technology allows. Specifically, Conchu users can choose from three sexual preference options: straight, gay or bi.
Additionally, users must identify their gender (male or female). It’s not possible to implement an app that handles gender fluid options.
What is a public date?
A public date is a date posted by any Conchu user. Public dates include type of place, who pays, date style (spending level), exact location, date and time.
The difference with private dates is that in public dates any user (with compatible preferences) can post dates and ask out other users. The user who posted the date then chooses the applicant they like best.
It’s important to note that nobody, except the person who posted a date, can see the users who “apply” to their date.
What is a private or 1-on-1 date ?
It’s similar to a public date, but it is sent to only one person in private (from the person’s profile press “Invite to private date”). The date features are the same.
What is a counter-date?
A counter-date is a way for you to change the details of a private date you were invited to.
Let’s say you’re interested in going out with the person who asked you out, but you don’t agree to pay 50/50 or can’t go on the day they scheduled.
Sending them a counter-date lets you change this, but the user who initially invited you has to accept the changes or send another counter-date until you reach an agreement, or one of you rejects the invitation.
Can I post a date, or invite someone privately, and not pay for the date?
Absolutely, this option is available in every date created in Conchu. You have 3 options:
- Whoever asks out pays
- Bill is split 50/50
- The person who receives the invitation pays
These options are valid for public and private dates, and are defined when the date is created in Conchu.
It is important to know that the person who posts a date does not necessarily pay for it. In other words, you could post a date and say the person who accepts the date pays.
What’s important here is to choose the option that makes you and your date feel more comfortable.
What happens when dates are accepted?
Once you accept or are “chosen” for a date both of you will see each other’s email and phone so that you can talk.
It’s important to know only emails are validated, not phone numbers.
How can I be invisible in the app so that no one can find me, but I still apply for dates or ask out privately?
It’s easy. You can choose “Private profile” and activate it in your personal menu (the bottom right icon), in the “Your Conchu” section.
