What can you use the app for?

Hitch.me is a application that young professionals can use to try to find the love of their life and someone who they'd like to settle down with. Hitch.me considers itself a safe, secure and reliable method to online dating for LinkedIn profile members. Users could browse through the hundreds of profiles of Hitch.me and LinkedIn members from across the world, message them with private smiles, give them a "sales pitch" on why they should date them, or even offer presentations through the Hitch.me platform. All Hitch.me activities are kept completely separate from a user's LinkedIn account. Users can set their privacy options so that only preferred Hitch.me members can search for and locate their profile. Understanding the issues that might arise out of mixing business with pleasure, Hitch.me ensures total control of one's account and that their privacy will always be respected and maintained.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Hitch.me was developed based on the idea that LinkedIn is a trusted and secure platform. However, many of the other dating sites available are not so secure and members on those could be scammers, sex offenders and other undesirables. Hitch.me takes the reliable LinkedIn platform and integrates it into a safe and secure dating platform. Hitch.me has been featured on such publications such as Mashable, TheStar.com, Business Standard and The Huffington Post. Hitch.me is a Canadian-based organization out of Ontario.

What are the differences to other apps?

Hitch.me is different from other dating sites in that it focuses on matching young professionals with one another with the intent to setup lifelong partnerships and marriages. By linking a user's trusted LinkedIn profile to their Hitch.me profile users can feel that they have an added layer of trust and security since LinkedIn profiles are much more difficult to fabricate.

It allows users to use the clout that they've achieved with their career and their LinkedIn profile and discretely use that in the dating game.
