When I first heard about this app, Hot or Not, I thought it was an entertainment app, you know, like when they ask Who wore it best and show two actresses wearing the same dress. Well, I was really wrong about what I thought, because this is actually a dating site that works through the app. While I am not looking for a date, I have been looking for new friends in our area for Fabgrandpa and I to go places with and hang out with. And there is an option to check that says you are here to “make new friends”, so I decided to check it out some.
Hot or Not is actually an online dating app. You can download it to your iPhone, your iPad, or your PC. You then can sign in with Facebook, and it pulls your date of birth, your hometown, and your photo, and matches you up with other people who are using the app who are in your age group and are nearby to you. The name Hot or Not comes from you being able to decide it you think the person you are viewing is hot, or not. Once you click on the X for NOT, you are taken to the next photo of the next person.
This guy looks like he might be fun to hang around with. He definitely displays a sense of humor in his photo. I can also tell that he is patriotic by the T-shirt he has on, and that he has nice smile (trust me on that. I blurred out his face for his privacy.) He is also in an appropriate age group for me, if I was looking for a date or a dance partner. If you click on the heart instead of the X, and that person also checks the heart on YOUR profile pic, then you are sent a link to get in touch with each other. Simple as that! While I don’t think this APP is really for me, all my single friends out there who would like to meet someone in their area and age group, should definitely give it a try. Download the mobile app app here. Check out Hot or Not on Facebook, too.
