Belovy - Frequently Asked Questions


Why do you need my real date of birth?

Now, we know how it works. Nobody ever gives their real date of birth when signing up to apps. Just like you all accept the terms and conditions without checking them!

But it’s kinda the point of this one.

Now, we’re not in the business of holding pressure or sending the heavies round to check your birth certificate.

But that’s how the algorithm finds your best chance of a successful relationship – by aligning your dates of birth according to astrological reasoning.

So, give us the wrong date of birth and you’re setting yourself up for incompatibility and waste the time of others.


Can I change my date of birth later?

No. It’s the most important factor the algorithm factors into finding your matches and (as per the first question) you’re going to give us the right date of birth anyway. So, why would you want to change it?

And here’s our part of the deal. We promise to never share it with anyone and to only use it to help identify high probability matches.


How does Belovy work?

When you sign up, the algorithm recognizes your date of birth and carries out a series of complex equations to find dates of birth of your most likely matches (factoring in your preferences such as age, location etc).

We could tell you exactly how it works, but the last person we tried to explain it to fell into a coma, so we’ll spare you the details.

Once the algorithm has worked its magic, you’re given a list of fellow users according to your criteria and theirs. Then, if you like them and they like you back, you can message each other.

But that's where the similarities with other dating apps end. While swiping apps are designed to provide a never-ending avalanche of nearby users, Belovy is more exclusive.

Our algorithm is based on astrology with the power of Astronomy, and designed to find you matches with whom you have a real attraction.

In fact, we promise not to overwhelm you with hundreds of 'matches' and to focus on quality over quantity.

And as new potential matches join the site, we’ll let you know.

It’s what we call passive dating.


What is Passive dating?

Passive dating is a new concept. To explain it, let us introduce the phrase ‘active dating’.

Active daters are those people you see on the train or in the coffee shop just swiping and swiping as if they're thumb has a mind of its own. They can get through hundreds of profiles in a day – most of which are of no interest to them.

These are people actively seeking a partner. Sometimes for the long term, sometimes for a quick fling. Always on a ‘hit and hope’ basis that assumes they will eventually find a compatible match.

NB: Mathematically speaking, they will – but it could take decades.

Passive dating is different. It’s for those who are prepared to wait for the right person, but want to stack the odds in their favor. People who prefer to just relax, get on with life and wait for a notification.


How does Belovy work?

We’ve developed an algorithm that uses a process known as ‘reverse astronomy’. Without getting too technical (remember our friend in a coma) it basically extracts data from the NASA ephemeris (check it out – this is a genuinely cool bit of kit!). It then compares millions of date combinations to identify which are in alignment with those of successful couples included in our study.


Does Belovy work even if I don't believe in astrology?

Absolutely! In fact, as a passive dating app, it’s perfect for skeptics. It will take no more than a couple of minutes to sign up, and then you can forget all about it until you receive a notification.

It's even free of charge (for a limited period), so you have literally nothing to lose. Sign up here.


Is this really Free?

Absolutely! Check the terms and conditions if you don’t believe us!

We are planning to add some optional premium features to enhance the user experience in the near future. But it will never be mandatory to pay a single cent.


What happens to my data?

Belovy may use the information you provide to contact you about relevant content, products, and services. You can easily unsubscribe from Belovy at any time, in a few clicks. For more information, check our Privacy Policy.


Why don't I have more matches?

That’s down to destiny. If you feel like you don’t have enough matches, you’ll have to take it up with the universe.

For our part, we’ll stick to our promise not to inundate you with hundreds of ‘matches.’ But when someone who is predestined to be a highly compatible match joins the platform and ticks all your boxes, we’ll be sure to let you know.


What are the three levels of attractions?

For the age range you select, we’ll calculate all compatible dates according to three levels of attraction:


What are the four kinds of attraction?

Ok, now we’re getting into the technical stuff. But this is interesting technical stuff.

For Belovy, there are four kinds of attraction:


What is the definition of the Belovy attraction?

The spontaneous tendency to want to get to know someone and make a connection. Attraction means you are interested in who the other person is and want to learn more about them. It’s a feeling that favors pleasant attitudes towards someone and makes you feel something inside – even if you’re not quite sure what it is yet.

You find the other person makes you smile and that you feel tenderness and warmth towards them. Depending on age and other factors (e.g. philosophical, social and cultural), a strong attraction may be the first step towards developing an intimate or sexual relationship.


Is Belovy a location-based app, like other popular dating apps?

Sort of! While you can specify that you want people close to you, our app doesn't automatically update when you move around – because it’s not about finding hook-ups but identifying people you might actually date.


How popular is Belovy?

Belovy is a start-up at the beginning of its journey. We’ve done the groundwork, established the algorithm, and already have a solid base of users. But this is just the start.

Naturally, the most important thing is that we can deliver what we promise. So, we’re not going to run before we can walk, but we are rolling out the app right across the globe.

Here’s how. We plan to launch city by city across Canada, the US and Europe, gradually adding new users and increasing your chances of finding your perfect match.

And if you get in early (like right now by signing up here) you can start to benefit from the latest technology to hit the dating market while there is less competition on the app.
