The app limits the folks you meet to a 100-mile radius, in accordance with its app retailer web page.

The limitations inherent in each the focused viewers and its design would clearly restrict person progress.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped the app from selling itself on the latest winter convention for conservative advocacy group Turning Point USA the place they reportedly handed out their “dump your liberal boyfriend” merch.

The app has a score of two.5 out of 5 stars on App Store and someplace round 1,200 evaluations. Reviews have complained there’s a normal lack of girls utilizing it. This is regardless of the app incentivizing girls to hitch by providing a free premium subscription in the event that they invite their mates. McEntee claimed to Fox Business that the ratios between women and men are “close” to half. He additionally claimed most customers are between the ages of 23 and 35.

Of course, in an effort to keep its politically restrictive nature, The Right Stuff is invite-only. According to person evaluations, it doesn’t reveal its restrictions till after you add an image and submit person information.
