Global: A new social experiment opens the door for real-world dating in a tech-driven era.
In an era where online dating – that is finding dates from apps such as Hinge, Bumble, and Tinder – is growing increasingly normalized, so are the issues that may arise with such technology. Many users report feeling uncomfortable with the increased usage of said apps as they quickly become congested with bots, high pay walls, and people not taking the apps seriously.
In an effort to encourage a more real-world approach to dating, single people are turning to an experimental new way to date, the “Pear Ring”.
The Pear Ring is a teal-colored finger ring. Wearing this ring signals to others that they are single and ready to mingle, much like the opposite of a wedding ring.
The rings are a single flat fee and grant the wearer access to free events held within their city.
