Patook or other relationship services


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried Patook, this friendship seeking service, or anything else like it?  I'm curious about experiences anyone's had with it.  I know there have been previous efforts to create a service like this one that failed and shut down, but this one seems like they're taking a more heavily-moderated approach.

I haven't used it a lot, but I decided to sign up tonight and at least check it out. The whole thing feels very beta still (pre-beta even in some places, especially in the app). 


That said, it seems to have a few things going for it. There's lots of interesting options and they reckon they can filter out flirts automatically.


To give you an idea of how broken the UI is at the moment though, here's a few little snippets...





Update: It's actually still officially in alpha. That means very early testing. Expect things to be broken.

Update 2: You can customise their ranking algorithm to manually add points to people if they meet certain criteria.

Update 3: Oh, no QPP/QPR options (yet?) but I'm undecided whether this is a good thing or not.

If the focus is strictly platonic I can't see how adding QPR options would made much sense. It would most likely just confuse the majority of users.

Dosn't especially appeal to me since I'd really want something which was more QP focussed. Rather than either romance or purely platonic...
