    How and when you should ask your new partner to delete their dating apps

    TheVisualsYouNeed / Shutterstock The world of dating can be a minefield. It's hard to know whether you should delete your dating apps when you meet someone you like. The best idea might be to exercise caution early on, because you don't really know the person yet. Also, they could be dating several other people.

History

Badoo was launched in 2006, by a small international group of young, forward thinking programmers and tech entrepreneurs. Their vision was to use the most advanced technologies available to create an elegantly modern, fast and easy way for people to meet new people in their area - and have fun doing it. The scope would be global, but adapted to local needs. It worked.

Badoo now has the majority of its operations in London. It is currently available in 46 languages via Badoo.com and various social/mobile platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Facebook & Desktop application.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Badoo (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It's Skype interview from London office. It's the first stage of the hiring process.

    I am amazed by how the interviewer is so helpful for the interview process. Before this first stage, I had conversation with the interviewer about 3 weeks ago. So they really want us to be ready for the interview.
