Let’s face it: it’s fun to swipe left and right. But when you’re ready to find that special someone, today's dating apps often fall short. After all, more than half of all couples today still meet through friends, family and co-workers. That old adage still rings true: it's all about who you know.

What if there was an app that leveraged the best of modern online dating and the power of your friends and extended personal network?

Meet M8. We built M8 on the simple premise that the best matches come from the people who know you best.

At M8, we turn your real-life friends into matchmakers who introduce you to their friends (and friends of friends) and vouch for you via written personal endorsements. Endorsements provide a human layer to our platform giving matches insight into potential compatibility, as well as providing a warm introduction that establishes common ground. The end result? A dating app that actually does what it's supposed to do. 

Featuring two distinct user roles -- Dater and Matchmaker -- M8 offers something for everybody, whether you're single, in a relationship, or married with kids. And It’s free to get started!

We are launching this fall (2017) on IOS App Store!

P.S. Our story isn’t about love at first sight. But it is about happily ever after, and the friends that help you get there. Find out how Stephen and Linda met here:

  • M8 on Techcrunch!

    hi everyone so the reason we had to postpone our Product Launch is that we were on a press embargo with Techcrunch. We just pitched M8 yesterday!

    Here's the article:

  • SHHHH.....

    Shhh....we just got word that M8 has been selected to present at a major tech event. It's all very hush hush. We have decided to postpone our Product Hunt launch until mid-late September. (Thunderclap will now send out the one-time post on your behalf at a new date)

    Thank you again for your support on this campaign!

Hi, this is Stephen and Linda. We met through the help of our friends and decided to create a matchmaking app where friends are part of the magic!

M8 is a relationship matchmaking platform where your real-life friends vouch and introduce you to their friends and friends of friends.

Featuring two distinct user tracks -- Dater and Matchmaker -- M8 offers something for everybody whether you're single, in a relationship, or married with kids. And it’s free to get started!
