New H.A.D Dating App Let’s You Choose: Hook Up, Avoid, Date

Are you better at “playing the game” than finding your soul mate? Now there’s an app for you! The H.A.D. dating app is the newest social app available on iPhone and Android allowing users to be honest in whether they want to Hook Up, Avoid, or Date the “players” around them. H.A.D. has a purpose for every user by acknowledging the variety of honest intentions users share in exploring surrounding available options through the mobile dating world.  Similar to Tinder, connections on the app happen when two players express mutual attraction. Instead of simply swiping right and left, users drag and drop the pictures of nearby users into the three categories. If the same user adds you to the same category a connection is made, and the real games begin.

 

 

Don’t Play Games: Get The H.A.D Dating App

Users are getting rid of swiping and replacing with dragging and dropping to find the perfect match every time.  The easy to determine categories give you the best options in finding the right person with similar intentions. Less wasted time and miscommunication brings you only a few clicks away from turning a boring night into a passionate adventure. Check out the Instagram (@thegethad) for testimonials and use the hashtag #GetHad to share experiences from the app.
