039 Dating for geeks, with DragonFruit founder Orie Enav

Dating for geeks (we’re all at least a bit geeky about something!) A special guest interview with Orie Enav, founder of the DragonFruit dating app . Orie is a self confessed science-fiction nerd, boardgame lover & serious about helping people create relationships based on honesty, self reflection and self knowledge. We go behind the scenes and discover the story of DragonFruit, how it came about and what sets it apart in the crowded online dating market. One of the most fun interviews I’ve ever done – come and join us!

Orie Enav is a lawyer and self-proclaimed geek based in New York City. DragonFruit was born from the idea that the geek community was underserved in the online dating market and deserved an authentic tool to connect with likeminded people. The DragonFruit app is based on a unique matching algorithm that factors interests in a qualitative way, pairing up people with the same and related interests to remove the awkwardness of the first meeting.  The aim of Dragonfruit is to cater to everyone who may define themselves as geeks across the full spectrum of geekiness.

The app is free and available on both iOS and Android devices.
