How a joke dating app for bearded men became an international sensation
Bristlr - Connecting those with beards to those who want to stroke beards.
By Caroline Mcguire for MailOnline. In the last few years, the beard has had a renaissance. No longer just the preserve of tramps and lumberjacks, it is now seen on lawyers, bar staff and artists across the western world who have wanted to add a bit of edge to their look. The move has not gone unnoticed by the fairer sex, many of whom are delighted at the new facial hair trend. So it can only be good news that a new dating website has emerged, specifically linking up beard lovers with men who have beards.
I Joined a Beard-Themed Dating Site
I have a thing for beards, so when I heard about this new dating site and app called Bristlr, I was intrigued. It was not until I heard that it was supposed to be more feminist friendly that I decided to actually try it out. Although I have no intention of dating anyone right now, I signed up for it to see what it was like. Much to my surprise, within the first five minutes of using it, I saw many men who basically resembled my dream guy. I have not gotten one single inappropriate message and their grammar is excellent, too.
Bristlr was founded just a handful of weeks ago by English developer John Kershaw as a complete joke, while he was bored at work one day. I wanted to get some context before I took the plunge. I was expecting to get a few laughs, and then see it fade away. Instead, a whole bunch of people signed up!
