I have not gotten one single inappropriate message and their grammar is excellent, too.
Bristlr doesn’t let you message someone without you mutually liking each other, which is similar to Tinder.
“Just know, that at if you have a beard, you have found a home,” the site boasts.
It describes the typical lumbersexual ranging from “the bearded lumberjack out in the woods to the urban hipster trying to return to a manlier time”—in other words, a more rugged riff on the metrosexual look.
It all started as a joke one afternoon, while I was procrastinating at work.
To mark the Movember facial hair celebrations, leading UK dating expert Charly Lester sat him down for a chinwag about facial-hair hotness.
From there I made a fake landing page, and to my surprise people started signing up! We get emails from people all over the world who’ve met their soulmates – their words, not mine – through Bristlr. Bristlr was designed to give you a fun means of introduction.
A couple of weeks later, I created a prototype of the app in a couple of weeks, launched it. People tell us that the dates they go on via Bristlr feel a lot more relaxed because of it.
The messages I’ve gotten from the bearded men on Bristlr have greatly differed from all the disgusting ones I’ve gotten on Tinder and Ok Cupid.
They’re respectful and try to genuinely get to know me.
