Chappy, a fusion of ‘choice’ and ‘happy’ is the brainchild of Ollie Locke – of fame – and Jack Rogers.

A new dating app, specifically for gay men, has been launched with the aim to give users a choice between relationships or more casual hook ups.
On the “Meet” tab, I browsed the profiles of fetching young lesbians in my immediate vicinity.
I like that instead of clicking on a profile to see more than one picture, HER shows you a collage of images to quickly convey who you’re looking at.
One thing both men are determined to distance Chappy from is “hook-up culture”.
Grindr, the most well-known existing app for gay men, and Tinder, where users can search for dates by gender, have long been associated with casual sex and hook-ups, although both apps have also been the foundation for many new millennial relationships.
I wanted to be able to find someone who I could bring to my friends who I had fallen for.” “Both of us identified that all the apps out there at the moment are very much casual dating apps which focus on facilitating hook-ups,” Rogers adds.
He claims that these apps only further fuelled existing negative stereotypes and long-standing myths surrounding the gay dating scene.
The app, which can be downloaded from the app store is being rolled out in London, New York City and Los Angeles and has been backed by Whitney Wolfe, the co-founder of Tinder and CEO of Bumble – the dating app where women have to initiate the conversation.
