It's A Match! Are Jigsaw Puzzles the Future of Dating?

Are you tired of endlessly swiping on dating apps? Are you matching with people but no one seems to be messaging?

Well, first of all, you're probably wondering why a jigsaw puzzle website is talking about online dating. We bring to you the latest dating app: Jigsaw. This app is a sort of intersectionality between the fun world of jigsaw puzzles and the blasé world of dating. It is designed to strip away the superficiality of online dating and put the focus on personality. 

How does it do this, you ask? On Jigsaw, faces are initially covered with a digital jigsaw puzzle, and the only way to uncover the face is to exchange messages. But first you've got to match with that person, and the only way to do that is if you mutually like the sound of each other. It is thus designed to force people to put more effort into their personal bios, which is where the attraction starts.

Once matched, users exchange messages and gradually the puzzle becomes uncovered. CEO Alex Durrant believes six messages each (12 in total) between two individuals is what is required to have a meaningful conversation, and so Jigsaw only reveals the person's full face after seven messages each are exchanged.

And who knows, maybe once you've seen each other's faces you can go out for a coffee and complete a real jigsaw puzzle; preferably one of the high quality jigsaw puzzles from Rest In Pieces' range. After all, research shows that jigsaw puzzles are a great activity to get to know people over, and will ensure your conversations never go stale. There's nothing worse than having nothing to talk about over dinner!

Online dating doesn't have to be so puzzling, after all.
