We don’t record the exact journeys of people, we just remember the crossing points."Happn got its start in Paris, France, but has since expanded to 3 million registered users with strong followings in London and New York City.
"We should be at least 10 million members by the end of this year."Talking with Rappaport, it quickly became clear that while people have a habit of sitting and browsing dating apps like Tinder, Happns takes the stance that you should be living in the moment.
And that while you can browse Happn while at a museum to see other people at the exhibit, the main idea is to be able to browse your encounters after you get back home.
Happn is the hopeless romantic among dating apps, though the concept can sound a little creepy at first.
A lot of apps like Tinder simply show you people within a few miles of you.
And so Rappaport, a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Dailymotion, decided to create his first app to act as a sort of hybrid between a travel log and Tinder.
That way, when people noticed someone interesting on their daily commute or while sitting at their favorite coffee shop, they could open up Happn afterward if they missed their initial chance and have a second shot at striking up a conversation."When you meet someone, it is always at a precise place and at a precise moment," Rappaport said.
