The app was designed to create a better environment for women online by giving them control over which men join the network. All men who join are approved by a female member and chat between members is limited to 20 messages.[1] Five of the company's 11-member launch team are women and the site was backed by $150,000 in angel funding.[1]

The company's first marketing message centered on a "ditch the creeps," movement supported by a humorous YouTube video.[3][4]
