One aspect of emigration is the chance to meet the love of your life in a strange land, but meeting up by chance doesn’t always work!

Finding a soulmate as the direct result of leaving the home country for a new life in another land is the dream of many would-be expats, but making it happen can be a tough call for those who’re not good at turning chance meetups into long-term relationships. For British and Irish expats, a recently uploaded and exclusive first ever dating app may be the answer which helps make the dream come true.

Based in Australia and the brainchild of two Brit entrepreneurs who’d been there and done that, the site aims at linking people with shared interests and similar life experience. It’s being rolled out in the massive Oz capital, and will make building genuine, lasting relationships far easier via its many features aimed at singles looking for a lifetime partner who shares their common goals as well as an understanding of each others’ past life and heritage.

One important aspect of the app shows the length of time each user has been in Australia and if they’re planning on staying, thus eliminating the risk of falling in love with an expat who’s planning to eventually return to the home country. The hometown sector lists each user’s exact place of origin, thus allowing people a choice of suitable users from their native area. Pairing personal preferences concerning behavior can ensure a choice of partners with similar interests.

Over one million Irish and Britons are living in Australia at present, with the founders of the app appreciating that not everyone is finding it easy to pair with a potential partner who’s a blend of cultures. Moving so very far away from one’s home country is disorienting at best and scary at worst, and is always unsettling as family and friends aren’t there to give advice and encouragement. Although the app is being marketed to British and Irish expats looking for a partner, it’s also perfect for all those with a romantic interest in both expats like themselves and the local offerings.
