Assisted Romance: Matchmaking Makes a Comeback


Tina Wilson lives at the intersection of technology, friendship, and romance.  She has studied how people use technology and how they wish they could harness it to find love. In the process, she's found millions of people who aren't part of the online dating world. For these people--and the friends and family who love them, she developed Wingman, the mobile matchmaker  app that lets people create profiles for their single friends, find a potential match and make the introduction. Significantly, people cannot create profiles for themselves on Wingman. The whole point is to collaborate, to help your friends find happiness and let them do the same for you. "The art of matchmaking is as old as friendship itself. Tina brought it into the digital age."
