Briefly: Here's One Sure Way To Find Love, But It'll Cost You $49

Fredrik Colting has decided that destiny needs a helping hand and he's dreamt up a creative way to speed things along. It's called Serendip, an app that "helps you find true love".

Here's how it works:

  • Serendip is designed to be worn by single people looking for love.
  • Wearers fill out a detailed personality questionnaire aimed to match them with compatible people. 
  • The device sends out a signal using radio waves to find other users nearby.
  • Once within 100 feet of a match, The watch vibrates and flashes up a ‘destiny’ symbol when a potential match is in sight.

Call me a cynic but I keep thinking, 'If only it were that straightforward.' 
  • What if a user lies when filling the questionnaire?
  • What is a user is already married?
  • What if a user is a kidnapper or ritual killer? 
My over-analytic self has conjured all the horrible possibilities...

And of course the watch doesn't provide any help for toasting. You know, converting your perfect match to happily ever after :D
