Background and Overview

  • Introduce yourself in a short video and ask potential mates a question you would really like to know.

  • Crush'd algorithim matches you with other users who can video record a reply to your question.

  • If you like how they answered, a match is made and you can message each other and take it from there. ❤️

  • Real-time: Communication feels instantaneous. More generally, updates to the state of an application in multiple locations occur with no perceptible delay.

  • Seamless: Users can expect a responsive application that is intuitive to use and has a consistent look and feel regardless of the platform.

Crush'd is primarily built with the MERN stack, a combination of following four technologies: MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.
