During the past year, alcohol and various substances became an increasingly popular means of making the excess of lockdown-induced free time more fun. This led to a new dating trend: sober dating. It became so popular, that Loosid App recently hit 1.5 million interactions.
Amidst the pandemic, Loosid witnessed a staggering increase of above 3000% of messages exchanged on the platform. In addition to it, hotline messages saw a rise of over 4000%. Being the only platform adjusted to the needs of people who are, and want to live a sober life, demand for Loosid App exploded overnight.
The initial idea behind this platform is to fight the common prejudice that sobriety means boredom. In the beginning, they offered interaction and connections to individuals interested in leading a substance-free life. However, the platform grew to offer support, guides, and tools for those who struggle to remain sober.
Being directed towards a sober, healthy lifestyle, the platform offers a variety of guides to its users—sober traveling, lists of alcohol-free bars, and community chats for everyone interested. There is also a section for people who are pursuing sobriety as a lifestyle, offering addiction help and connections to different addiction treatment centers.
The pandemic moved dating to the Internet almost entirely. The online dating market is flooded by apps for every niche and preference, from kink-oriented BDSM platforms to dating apps adjusted to senior users. The Loosid App offers a fresh, and so far unique, perspective to the dating experience; according to the demand, it was much-needed.
