Which is very minimal - we only need your name, some tag-line & profile image. If you are single then we’ll need to know gender - yours and what you’re interested in and year of birth.
We use your phone-contacts to build your connections graph, from which we derive your friends and later your potential matches, and potential matches amongst your friends.
Contacts of yours that also hold your phone number in their contacts list will automatically become your Pairing friends, which means you will both see each other’s profiles as friends, you’ll be able to chat and you’ll be able to see which of your other friends they potentially might match with.
Users who we find are part of your extended community (ie friends of friends or so) are candidates to match you. If their criteria for a match meet yours, then they will be displayed to you as a potential match and vice versa. Bring your friends to Pairing - even the non-single ones, as it increases your pool exponentially.
You will see which of your friends gave you hearts - in the match’s profile. A heart by a friends means this friend is mutual to you and your match and thus can help you get some more insights about that person.
Potential pairs amongst your friends will be visible to you. Go on and send them a heart, so they know you are a mutual friend and they can get some more info from that.
