Spring A Clean Home Forward With Handy

Winter is harsh to our homes. We often don’t clean them very well in winter. When Spring rolls up and we’re able to air out our houses and stay healthy, we notice how badly we’ve neglected our homes. We either grab our cleaning supplies and scrub until we can’t scrub anymore or we sit in a dark corner and try to ignore it. We don’t ignore it on purpose. We get overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. That is where Handy comes into play.

Background On Handy

Handy, formally Handybook, got developed in 2012 by Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua. It all started when Oisin Hanrahan started renovating apartments in Budapest. He found it was very hard to find good handy-men he could trust. A couple of years later he met Umang Dua while they were studying at Harvard Business School together and realized that it was as hard to find good handy-men in the US just as it was overseas. Together they developed Handy to aid people everywhere to find good professionals to help them with their household needs. It operates in United States, United Kingdom and Canada.

Is This the Dawn of Dating Armagedon?

Have you heard the one about the lady who walked into a bar? Wait, cancel that thought. A lady reaches into her handbag and takes out her phone. She quickly wipes left as she does away with Michael, 27 and Jason, 31. She quickly hones in on a photo of Mason, 28 and swipes right so effortlessly, it’s no doubt she is a pro when it comes to online dating. As such, they are a match. They chit chat, and afterwards, make plans to get together. After all, they are only 5 miles apart.

Welcome to the wonderful world of online dating and meetups. As the almost-constant use of smartphones continues to increase, people are becoming quite comfortable with sharing the location, a new generation of dating applications are cropping up whose dimensions are are diverse as the human race itself.

Busy with school, work and social lives, millennials agree that mobile apps not only save time but also allow users to easily sort through and discard undesirables, based solely on a handful of photographs, words and Facebook connections.

Unlike dating apps of yesterday, with never-ending profiles to peruse and messages to write, the newer apps now offer such immediacy, that it’s almost comparable to the days of simply walking up to a complete stranger and chatting.

With regards to potential matches, let’s just say there is plenty of the fish in the sea. One of the most popular apps on the market is Skout. It was developed in 2007, and has been making meetups easier than ever imagined. With a simple click of your phone, you can find people who are close to you and if all goes right, meet up for a coffee, cocktail or tour a new city you are visiting.

With millions of user worldwide, Skout has made a name for itself as one of the original smartphone apps for meeting new people.
Revealer is another app that lets you listen to a person’s voice and only then show their photos if you have a mutual interest. For men who are looking for men, Boyahoy, Scruff and Grindr are the apps to check out.

As for Tinder, its simplistic interface and popularity among celebrities has made it one of the most downloaded dating apps when compared with Skout. But unlike Skout, Tinder requires users log in with their Facebook accounts.

Although mobile dating apps are still relatively new, they are used from finding “the one” to casual dating among users between the ages of 25 and 44 years old. Interestingly, most people have become as comfortable with the online dating scene as they are with online banking, shopping and booking their next vacation on the Internet.

Unfortunately, there is a downside. This is the point where most of us have had to come to the realization that the fine art of courtship has gone astray. Facebook has also decided to catch the wave of online dating and recently released a new feature called “nearby friends,” which allows users to see who is near than at any given time.

Regardless of one’s opinion, people across the board have a love-hate relationship when it comes to online dating. We may not like the idea of being judged solely on our physical appearance, but this hasn’t stopped us from airbrushing and retouching our photos to perfection. Let’s face it, nobody wants to be the one they swiped left on.
