Abstract

This thesis project is an approach for having virtual dates through an app interaction and gather the basic elements to show the level of affinity with the user is having the date. A real need of the users, who use these apps and look for a relationship, is to find affinity with other users. Currently, there are many apps, which offer more interaction rather than swipe right or left. However, these apps do it based on affinity behavior and let the users use their flirting skills. They might have hobbies and interests in common. Nevertheless, it seems this is not enough. That is why this project aims to give an extra value to these kind of apps. Therefore, this project has as final user the people who look for a formal relationship. The proposal idea of this thesis is to design a virtual dating app where the users only see users who have more affinity and who can interact with them through virtual scenarios. These virtual scenarios should be planned and generated in such a way that a longterm relationship analysis will measure the attributes. During the development of this thesis, it is used usercentered design methods to formulate and translate the user needs to the final product. The outcome for this project is an interactive high fidelity prototype developed for Android devices. This app prototype simulates a virtual date, including one virtual scenario where both users should comment about it and rate the level of satisfaction of the others response. The agreement or disagreement between the users are the data collected and processed for the results. Not all long-term relationships elements are included on this prototype, given that it is out of the scope for this work. Nevertheless, it is seeded the idea for a future work.
