Introducing Spex

Putting the sex back in to wearing specs.

That’s the risque new tagline of our latest dating app, Spex. We’re excited to reveal our latest app, dating for those that are bespectacled!

Take a look at the new app here.

Spex is the brainchild of dating industry expert, Charly Lester, a passionate glasses wearer and advocate. Here’s what Charly has to say about why Spex is important for glasses-wearing dating enthusiasts:

I never used to like photos of myself with my glasses on, and when it came to dating, I’d never include photos of me in my glasses. And yet I wear glasses at least 85% of the time. It took me a long time to embrace being a glasses-wearer, but when I did, I was surprised by how many people told me I look more attractive wearing them!

The thing about glasses, is that they can tell you a lot about someone’s personality. They are something you choose to wear day in, day out. And so you need to love the glasses you wear, and feel confident wearing them. I think SPEX can help people find that confidence, and realise just how great they look with their glasses on.

I’ve worked in the dating industry for years, and have always said that niche dating sites are the key, as they bring together people with common interests. And while being a glasses-wearer may not be a personality trait, it’s a decision you’ve made. After all – you could wear contacts or have opted for laser correction. Some people even wear non-prescription glasses as a fashion statement.

I think you can tell a lot from the glasses someone chooses … and I like to think that us glasses wearers are as intelligent as all the stereotypes suggest!

With more than 50% of the population wearing glasses, Spex will be a step forward in making eye-opening changes to the online dating industry.
