InviteUp Swizzles Dating, Restaurants

Is the key to finding a satisfying date (or mate) thinking more about sharing a meal, than swapping hot photos? A new, LA-based dating app developer, InviteUp sure thinks so. InviteUp recently launched in the Los Angeles area, and lets users connect at local restaurants, coffee shops, bars, or through local activities and venues--all aimed at getting to a real, live date. InviteUp said it was created by Avi and Mitch Kahan, who are local real estate and restaurant entrepreneurs, and is trying to respond to "tinder-fatigue". The app is currently available on iTunes, and the company said it plans to release an Android app soon.
