I stumbled across this app called Two Degrees a few days after my roommate’s tragic bumble date. By definition, Two Degrees is an app that connects you with real people in real life who are nearby based on mutual friends. Sounds simple enough, right? When two people discover that they are only separated by two degrees, new relationships can be made and a smoother transition can take place. I’d have to fully agree. If my roommate finds out she has friends in common with the cute guy in our local bar, she’s more inclined to feel a sense of security when talking to him and getting to know him. You probably have friends in common with people standing next to you all the time and don’t even know it. Two Degrees was made for situations like this.

I want my roommate to have more success with meeting new people in general. After researching, I suggested that she download this app and start forming friendships with people based on her mutual connections. Why put the pressure of having to date someone you just met for the first time? Two Degrees isn’t a dating app, but it’s an app that allows you to meet new people and expand your network in a safer way. Whether you use it for friendship, dating, business or to merely pass the time at a specific location, you’ll be surprised at how many people around you know people that you do.

Lets rewind a few days to learn more about why I started researching safer and more effective social networking apps for my roommate.


A few days ago my roommate went on a date with a guy from bumble. Not only did the guy lie about his job, height and age, he also didn’t look anything like his profile photo. Nonetheless, she was bummed. Cue in the song “another one bites the dust” and it sings the story of her life. This is a pretty regular occurrence for bumble and tinder users. Online dating is tough, there’s no doubt about it. However, online dating through an app— that’s even tougher.

I couldn't help but think about how much smoother the transition of forming relationships through technology could be. Imagine how different things would be if there was an icebreaker involved when you met someone over the internet. Whether you are looking for new friends, new love interests or new business connections, we can all agree that icebreakers ease the awkwardness of meeting complete strangers.

As my roommate sat there all dopey eyed and upset, I realized there was a safer way to meet new people through technology. Personally, I’m not the kind of person to meet anyone over the internet, unless some of my friends know the person well. *BOOM* — The lightbulb just went off in my head. What if my roommate could meet new friends and potential love interests with the security of knowing one of her friends is already close with that person? What if her childhood best friend went to college with that person? What if her neighbor played soccer with that person? What if there was a mutual connection bonding those two people together?

What if you say…

My roommate’s tragic bumble date ultimately led me to stumbling across Two Degrees.

Two Degrees is currently the safest and most effective way to meet people online.

It’s time to make your world a little smaller and expand your network two degrees at a time.

I know I’m downloading Two Degrees tonight. Are you? See you there.
