SinglesAroundMe (SAM) It is a location aware, 'social discovery' mobile dating app that connects people nearby in real life, world-wide. 


SinglesAroundMe has become the iconic brand in the mobile dating world and symbolizes the new wave of location aware dating. SAM was the first GPS dating app to hit the market in April 2010 and we have been pioneering the industry since then. Our apps are continually being enhanced by our dedicated team of software engineers. 

Spontaneous, serendipitous, by-chance meetings are exciting and they remind us of moments when great romances begin. We meet people when we’re out and about, not when we’re stuck at home behind a computer.

My name is Chris Klotz, and I founded SinglesAroundMe. I met my wife by chance while on the Cambridge University ski team in the French Alps, and I have now been happily married for 15 years. I know that these kinds of chance encounters can lead to great happiness and wild romance, but I also know there is a bit of luck needed in finding and meeting like-minded singles nearby. I’m sure this life experience lead me down the path to create SinglesAroundMe, and today, I’m delighted that millions of users around the world are meeting and dating singles through the app.

We came up with several important inventions at SinglesAroundMe and have patent filings to protect our inventions. With location based dating we wanted to ensure that our users location privacy was protected. We invented Position-Shift which actually allows users to shift their location by a few miles when being viewed by others. Users can choose to Hide, Show and now Shift their location whenever they wish. This revolutionary technology has far reaching applications beyond the dating / social discovery world. Our second patent is related to the sharing of information between social networks. 

I hope you enjoy the app and please send us your feedback.
