We believe that it gets harder to make new platonic friends when you hit adulthood. After running a survey
of over 2,000 US adults, we confirmed that only 1 in 4 adults find it easy to make friends.
And that number drops to 1 in 5 after moving to a new city or place.
We also believe that there are some awesome people around you who share your interests, who you might otherwise never meet.
So we thought: there must be some apps or websites that address this problem out there, right?
Well there are some, but they suffer from one pretty difficult problem - users who are there looking for more than friends tend to push actual friend seekers out.
The entire concept of Patook is therefore based on building a platform where such behavior results in an immediate ban. If anyone attempts to flirt on the app or the website,
not only will their messages not get delivered, they will also be permanently banned from the site. And it's all done by an artificial intelligence robot that
was trained specifically to recognize flirty, creepy, needy or aggressive behavior, and that evolves every day based on the new data it receives.
