Dating app founded in the city of love makes it happn in Birmingham

“Why should we go on dating websites when we meet so many new people every day, in real life?”


Starting with this very simple observation, Didier Rappaport, Fabien and Antony Cohen decided to create happn, which was founded in Paris (known for its romantic atmosphere and stunning surroundings) in 2014, giving people an everyday superpower: the power to find a person you’ve crossed paths with again, and to get in touch with them.

A spokesperson or employee from Happn, said: “What’s amazing with happn is the ability to facilitate real life. People are able to seize missed occasions and connect with the people they have crossed paths with, when life didn’t necessarily allow them to properly meet. Within the happn team alone, we proudly boast 5 lovely couples who crushed on the app!”

The app is geolocated and uses real-time: so every time you cross paths with another member while shopping at the Mailbox, jogging through Cannon Hill Park or even during your lunch break in Victoria Square, their profile appears on your app.

The app has been downloaded over 22 million times in 40 major cities throughout the world, including London, New York City, San Francisco, Madrid, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Mexico City, Milan.
