Dating can be hard in this age and era with hurdles like global pandemics and sold-out marriage vending machines. Most people are now turning to the convenience of dating apps to make romantic connections. Dating apps can be full of pitfalls like fraud and misleading profiles. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has resorted to releasing its own dating app with the security that only the world’s biggest bureaucracy can provide.
The app is aimed at those who are eighteen and above who are living, working or studying in Tokyo. It is said to utilize AI to find pairings of users based on their bio. The app has a vetting process that requires users to prove their income, and marital status and undertake an online interview to confirm their identity. The online reaction to this move has been lukewarm as many point out that the government has taken this direction to deal with the declining birthrate. Here are some of the comments by Netizens on social media:

“I don’t know how this matchmaking works, but the government should probably stay out of weird stuff like this.”
“I tried to sign up for the browser version, but they required a studio photo so I never bothered.”
“Times are changing…”
“Older people might use this but they won’t help the birthrate and this is too much hassle for younger people.”

“Tokyo loves spending money on things that will never work.”Is Tokyo’s tax money going towards this? If this is meant to tackle late marriage and declining birthrates then even a layman like myself thinks other things need to be done… But maybe I’m wrong and a dating app is the last resort?”
“This is pretty laughable, but if they want to be taken seriously, they should emphasize the fact that marital status, number of dependents, and income are all true.”
“This is just like Psycho-Pass.”
