F*ck, Marry, Kill, the game—usually played at college parties or about celebrities—may be your ticket to love. Or at the very least, your new time-killer.
FMK is a controversial new dating app that gives users photos of three people and three choices. The Memo breaks down how it works: To F**K: “The one suited for a one night stand but that only would introduce to your parents if you want to piss them off." To MARRY: “This one’s good for the long term. Cute and all, and seems like a nice person." To KILL: “Not even if you were the only two survivors of a zombie apocalypse. In fact, you would rather fuck or marry a zombie.”
The app was created by Rui Gouveia of Portugal, who sees it as either a game or a fun way to meet people. “We’re seeing two types of users: the ones that use FMK just for the fun of it [and] others for the possibility of meeting new people."
Unlike dating apps like Tinder or Bumble, which focus on swiping on one person each time, FMK poses a unique problem: What happens if all three choices are actually good? Someone has to be "killed" off.
The very idea of "killing" a total stranger (or being "killed" off) is creepy and it opens up the issue of encouraging real dating-related crimes. "We know the concept is bold and risky [but users] can opt-out at any time if they don’t want their profile to be in the mix," says Gouveia.
