Some men ain’t got game so they take to booze to drown their sorrows while others take matters into their own hands and beat their meat.
But one North Carolina man has emerged with a funny yet marvel idea of creating a dating app which has him as the only male for various females to have access to; that is an app which bars other males.
Aaron Smith, 31, observed his hopes of landing a lady by visiting dating sites were not yielding the desired result because his photos were not displayed boldly enough. So he took the initiative with the help of an app developer friend to outdoor ‘Singularity’ dating app which he says saves a lady seeking love countless hours of swiping “by just matching you with me!”

“The biggest problem with the other apps is that my face is not featured prominently,” he told CBS affiliate WFMY.
Critics note Smith is just eliminating competition but he is unperturbed, confident he will meet “the one” now.
According to the Greenboro man: “If life gives you lemons, you should first make lemonade,” adding, “then make sure no other companies can produce or distribute their own soft drinks. So the only game in town is lemonade.”
Scott McDowell, Smith’s engineering friend, said he sympathized with his pal when approached with the idea.
“All of us who have done online dating in some sorta way can all relate to the fact that it really does sometimes suck,” he told the outlet.
Unlike other popular apps like Tinder or OkCupid, women who sign up for ‘Singularity’ will be met with a rotating collection of pictures that only feature Smith. He has photos showing in a Santa Claus hat, playing the guitar, and jumping in front of an ice cream truck, all sure to be featured prominently on the app.
Smith also has a YouTube channel where he posts footage from rock concerts and music sessions, and he recently uploaded an ad for Singularity that has received over 20,000 views.
Despite the views so far, Smith is yet to line up any dates from the app but believes the tide will soon turn in his favor.
Given that Smith is easy on the eye, it’s a wonder ladies are not looking his way even when he says he is gainfully employed.
