A dating app where you have to like three separate aspects of the person's profile showed to you independently for it to be counted as a general like for that person.
How it works: Different parts of people's profiles are presented to you separately, for example, an app might show you picture(s) of another user, you get to like it or not, then it shows a favorite song from someone's profile (it might be the same person whose picture you just saw, but might be from some other profile, you don't know this), you also swipe either left or right on it, then it shows you a list of someone's favorite hobbies and this continues. Once you collect three likes on the separate aspects from the same person's profile, you match with them.
Why?
Massive dating apps like tinder are so crammed with people and superficial profiles that nobody takes anything seriously there, it's more like browsing social media for fun than searching for someone to meet. The majority of people don't bother to put more than pictures and a few words on their profile. People rarely read more, if anything, anyway.
The proposed system would make people take matching a bit more seriously and using dating apps a bit less of a time waste. It also adds an additional gamification element to the experience.
With a proposed system in place, the users registering on the app would have to fill at least three separate sections of their profile to be able to match with someone. The ones swiping would be forced to pay attention not only to the pictures but other aspects defining the person as well. This also removes bias when even though you saw the entire profile and don't quite like the rest apart from the pictures, you disregard this, because of placing emphasis on the looks.
Important things to note: To make you match with someone fast enough and not prolong the swiping too much, once you liked a certain part of someone's profile, the app would soon display you another part of their profile, but not instantly, the algorithm should be smart enough for you not to guess the pattern.
The users should perhaps be allowed to choose which parts of others' profiles they get to swipe upon.

Aligning preference for aspects

I love this idea.
It would be cool if you could select which three aspects you care about the most (for instance: photos, hobby, job) so you would get it served more than others. Because there would be certain aspects of a person you simply don't care about, while other people do, like an astrological sign.
This feature could be behind a paywall to ensure monetization.

Authenticity in dating

This is a very interesting and unique idea. As a user of dating apps, I think one of my main frustrations is not being to connect genuinly with like-minded users even though such preferences are set in place.
Reading about your idea reminded me of a local dating app in my country, Singapore, which actually has a similar in app system to yours. The app, Cander.io, allows users to answer questions about the other party which strengthen the connection between them. Users are only given a single try for each questions and each user, thus limiting the number of people they can connect too. However, that being said, I believe such measures will allow people to connect with someone who suits their personality the best and will bring about more authentic connections. Another feature in Cander.io is a random match a day, where user will be matched with another user based on say the colour of the t-shirt they are wearing on that day. Combined with the ideas in your app, I believe it has the potential to do well in the market.
I think the gamification of dating apps creates an experience that is fun too and not simply for the sake of dating. The only issue I can forsee is perhaps users, simply swipping non-stop so as to eventually match with another user, which defeats the purpose of it.
To improve the app, may I suggest implementing a limited amount of swipes a day so that users are less inclinded to haphazardly swipe away. I think it would also be good to indicate preferences for users as some users have certain requirements that they cannot do away with.

Hi Darryl Koh Yuan Jie, thanks for your contribution!;) Cander.io seems like an interesting app, especially the random matching part, I didn't quite get how the answering questions part worked. I checked their website, it seems they are turning in the other direction now, making the platform into a social media site.
Yes, giving likes to each "card" shown to you poses an issue, but this is in the user's expense. You can't prevent it. If a person is using a platform that is supposed to limit random swiping and matches for this anyway, it's their choice, but it would only complicate things for them because even with giving constant likes to everything they're shown, it will take longer to match than on conventional dating apps.
Limiting swipes (or rather likes) to a certain number per day, as you propose, might help with this, but then the app would feel more restrained, which isn't good for attracting more users.

The idea could function as a Tinder add-on or a separate app but could result in fewer people using it since it takes a lot longer to match. In my country there aren't a lot of people that use the app seriously, so the matching is not so often. I imagine that with this app, the users would match very rare or never. Instead of this, yes, I agree it could raise the quality of the matching.

Juranium As I indicated in the idea description, the algorithm should be designed in a way that it would match you quicker. The matching process can be speeded up if after you liked one aspect from someone's profile the algorithm would soon show you other parts from the same profile, but not instantly after, for you not to guess the sequence. So, for example, it would show you someone's picture, if you liked it, then it would show one or two pictures of someone else and then another part, e.g. hobbies of the first person whose picture you liked. It would still be slower than conventional dating apps, but this should help, I think. And of course, such an app still has to have enough users in the first place, for this to work.

Povilas S I understand the principle of how you would implement these, let's say three aspects. What I wanted to refer to was that 1 like is faster than 3, no matter how far are the aspects in the swiping streak. But, yes, it would definitely raise the quality of the match for those who use the applications to seriously find a soulmate. For those just looking to find casual fun, it would become boring. It would be cool to see what percentage of users use Tinder for serious match-finding. It would help clear things up.

JuraniumThere are also various stages and needs in between casual fun and soulmates, those are just the extremes of the spectrum:) It would be useful not just for those looking for a firm match, I'm pretty sure about this. Three aspects are not much, really, it's just a bit more than just pictures and swift swiping, which also gets boring fast. For those taking online dating seriously and looking for a really good match, there are better websites and systems to match, like eharmony and other apps using questionaries for personality assessment, etc.
