About Fast Flirting
Fastflirting is a mobile app that does – as the old saying goes – exactly what it says on the tin; allowing its users to flirt with one another, but only for a maximum of 10 minutes! The concept is quite novel and for a time seemed to catch the popular imagination in the UK. After 10 minutes of flirting with another user you are forced to make a decision. So it’s a bit like virtual speed dating.
It’s an interesting idea, but with its focus on fast instant messaging, it’s definitely not for the faint hearted.
Here is how Fastflirting describe their product: "Fast Flirting represents the convergence of several popular phenomena -- social networking, speed dating and mobile chat -- to a simple and fun form of mobile entertainment.”
Fast Flirting has a unique appeal and encourages its users to really think on their toes as well as get in touch with each other very quickly. However, having only 10 minutes to flirt is a considerable restriction and it’s also not a format that seems to encourage deep conversations. Mostly people flirt best when they can do so in their own time! This format seems to be designed to encourage dirty talk and so will not be for everyone.
So for many customers a better solution might be to use the chat function on some of the more established sites. For example Zoosk has great instant chat options, with many fewer restrictions on how you can use it and within a much ‘cleaner’ online environment.
Fast Flirting was launched in 2002 and today boasts over 40,000 daily log ins across the countries it operates in (UK, USA, Canada). That’s a lot of flirting! The service is operated by Jumbuck Media, a global player with several other dating and mobile services in their portfolio.
It’s extremely easy to have a go at using Fastflirting as you don’t even have to give an e-mail address to start using the service. The only information they require is a nickname, your age and whether you are looking for a man or a woman. However beware, ease of access is not always a sign of quality! This tiny time commitment from prospective users means that people are likely to use the service very trivially.
On the flip side, what you do have to commit to with Fastflirting, is immediate contact with people. As soon as you are into the service you have the option to request to flirt with another user. If they accept then your fast flirt begins and you have 10 minutes to impress the girl of boy of your choice. Again, not an app for reticent people!
