The horror stories I've heard about online dating has me scared, y'all. From creepy comments, axe murderers and catfishing, I'm just not ready to do it alone. 

Today Kitestring was recommended by a caller for a safer online dating experience! Kitestring isn't an app, but a web based service. While I do wish it was an app, Kitestring is a tool that is a game changer to the online dating community. 

Kitestring is basically the online version of the buddy system. It's super easy, too! Users sign up through the website and enter their phone number and name and then Kitestring texts the user a verification code. Once the verification code is received, users enter it on the website along with the password they make for their account. Once the user is verified, you have the option to add up to ten contact numbers!

When you're on the website, next to the umbrella icon you will see 'Going Out?' where you can select 15 minutes, 45 minutes, 2 hours, 5 hours or 12 hours, with any time and date the user chooses. All the user has to do is click 'EMBARK' and the time sets for when the user needs to check in! There is also a way to have a check in code and an immediate distress code set up! Users can select emergency messages that go out to contacts that can be enabled and disabled at will!

The only flaw about this is of course, a dead battery.

Other than that, Kitestring is definitely a game changer to the online dating world!
