Aww. It's the cuddliest end to normal human interaction ever! (via)
Do you need a hug? Sure you do. But are you so desperate for a hug that you'd voluntarily cuddle a stranger you met online? If so, Cuddlr may be the disturbing new app for you! You simply input your cuddling preferences (Big spoon or little spoon? Cold feet welcome, or socks required?) and location to find other people looking for a cuddle nearby. You meet, cuddle, and get on with your lives.
My gut reaction is suspicion, but the video below suggests you can and will find other, non-psychotic people with great hair who want to cuddle with you but will not have bad breath or get creepy erections. Hot singles want to snuggle in your area!
Sorry, obviously snuggling is not available on Cuddlr. Only cuddling. Try Snugglr. (Don't try Snugglr. Please don't try Snugglr.)
Charlie Williams, the app's creator, apparently truly believes this app will be used for platonic cuddling, though he does warn, "We encourage first-time pairs to do their cuddling in a public place." Oh great. When that cuddling turns into something more, it will be in our nation's cafes and public parks.
Let's be real. This is a hook-up app. In fact, it's an extremely advanced one. Instead of finding people to have sex with and then working backwards to see if you have anything in common, like you do on Tinder, Cuddlr lets you start with the post-coital cuddle, work backwards to sex, then backwards to relationship.
In other words, we're doing great, fellow humans! Now if only there was an app to find someone to give us a pat on the back!
