This new dating app has an algorithm that blocks unwanted dick pics 🍆

Dating app Happii is aimed at the post-Tinder crowd looking for something more fulfilling than a random hook-up. Victoria Fell is on board.

Is anyone else getting dating app fatigue? Happn feels a bit creepy, we’ve basically ‘completed’ Bumble, and frankly, the course of true love ne’er did run smooth through Tinder.

On top of this, research from internet dating site eHarmony has found that British people are set to spend £2 billion and 96 million hours on bad dates in 2018. That’s a lot of bad small talk and house red wine.

HAPPII

More of these kind of dates, please

Through this fug of love ennui, we’re very pleased to see new dating app Happii entering the market. Aimed at business professionals who are part of the post-Tinder generation, Happii is for those ‘now seeking more fulfilling dates and relationships with like-minded people that share similar values and outlooks on life.’

How does it differ? Founder and CEO Darren Newman says it’s all about individuality. Sick of ‘identikit profiles’, he designed Happii to allow users’ personalities to shine through the things they’re interested in, from their favourite music to travel experiences or the books they like to read.

Happii also ensures accurate matches by taking note of each users’ non-negotiables (including sex, location and smoking/drinking preferences) and showing five personality traits and five key interests of those matches.

HAPPII

Funfair dates are also acceptable

As usual, only mutual likes lead the way to conversation, and to avoid those totally inspired first move of ‘hi how r u’, your first message has to be at least 100 characters.

Our favourite feature of all? Happii has an algorithm that intercepts any unsolicited dick pics. There’s also a ‘date diary’ to log your dates for your peace of mind and another algorithm to ward off dating scams.

The app launches later this year with a £12.50 annual charge to access the full-site (sign-up is free), you know the potential dates you meet there are serious. Pre-registration is available now, and the first 5000 who sign up get a free membership for life.

Now just need to work on our 100-character intro…

Who is Jack Brooksbank? Everything you (probably don’t) need to know about Princess Eugenie’s man 👑

He’s British, he’s called Jack and he’s about 31. All the insider info on Eugenie’s new man…

Jack Brooksbank

Hearty congrats to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on their engagement news. Much like the Wendy Cope poem, we wait years for one royal wedding and then two trundle along at once!

But who exactly is The Firm’s newest recruit, how did he and Eugenie meet and when is their wedding expected to happen?

Here’s everything you didn’t know you needed to know (and probably still don’t!)

(Can we also just take a moment to appreciate The Duchess of York’s Instagram account? Is that Lao Tzu quote, Fergs? Loving your work)

Who is Jack Brooksbank?

He’s a British chap called Jack Brooksbank! His parents (who we’re assuming are pretty delighted about how things have panned out) are Nicola and George Brooksbanks. The latter is an accountant and company director.

Brooksbank went to the private Stowe School and then decided against University in favour of a career in hospitality (more on that later).

In case you’re wondering (you’re probably not) the name Brooksbank is an old English surname that derives from the Middle English ‘Brikes’ bank – a person who works or lives near a riverbank.

How old is Jack Brooksbank?

He’s 31.

What is Jack Brooksbank’s job?

Brooksbank is in hospitality. He started out as a waiter, working at Chelsea’s Admiral Codrington pub and the Markham Inn, where he befriended Eugenie’s cousin Prince Harry and his all-weathers friend-in-waiting Guy Pelly.

Brooksbank then moved to manage Chelsea nightclub Mahiki, where virtually every Millennial royal has enjoyed a few Jolly Rogers at some point (K-Middy was a frequent flier back when she wasn’t burdened by the heavy yoke of Royal duty – producing heirs, opening squash courts etc. etc).

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

How did Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank meet?

Eugenie and Jack began dating nearly seven years ago after meeting in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier. ‘There was an immediate attraction and since that meeting, they have barely been apart,’ a source told the Daily Mail. Other than the two years of long-distancing they did when Eugenie moved to New York in 2013…

How did the couple get engaged?

At the beautiful private island resort of Calala in Nicaragua over the New Year. A step up from Prince Harry’s decision to pop the question to Meghan Markle after a roast chicken dinner at their cottage (Calala Vs. Chicken Cottage? We’re so Team Calala).

What’s Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring like?

Very pretty! A blush-colored padparadscha sapphire ring (nope, us neither) nestling in a ring of diamonds. It’s strikingly similar to her mother Fergie’s ruby and diamond engagement ring – as the beady-eyed Royal experts at Majesty Magazine were quick to point out.

When is the Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank wedding?

In Autumn 2018 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, where Meg and Harry are also tying the knot on 19th May.

P.S: Beatrice, if this isn’t a golden opportunity to upstage all proceedings (including your sister) with another octopus hat, we don’t know what is.
