Two popular apps have joined forces to help singles searching for the perfect date spot.

OpenTable—the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, and Hinge—the dating app designed to be deleted—have teamed up to help ease the stress many people feel when choosing a location for a date.

According to a survey by OpenTable, 86 percent of respondents feel some level of stress when trying to make a reservation at a restaurant for a date.

Together, OpenTable and Hinge are launching the ultimate Date Night guide, which will provide users with several useful tools including a list of the most romantic restaurants and cafes, plus the Date Night Matchmaker, which will provide personalized, bookable date spot recommendations based on users’ answers to personalized questions pertaining to their date and dining preferences.

“We know it can feel daunting to look for the perfect restaurant for a first date,” Anna Besse, marketing director at OpenTable, said in a news release.

“Our date night Matchmaker offers recommendations catered to each diner’s personal preferences, making it easy to find and book the right spot for any date. Between the new feature and our first-ever Best Restaurants for a Date list, daters can easily find the perfect restaurant for a first date or thousandth,” she continued.

According to the study, nearly 70 per cent of Canadians said they prefer going for coffee or tea over drinks for a first date.

“We recently uncovered that most Hinge members spend over an hour trying to find the perfect date spot and are hungry for recommendations,” Nathan Roth, CMO at Hinge, said.

“Our goal at Hinge is to help our members get off the app and out on a great date. With Date Night Matchmaker, we hope to help even more members plan a date they’ll never forget,” he continued.
