Users must choose which genders they want to date, like men, women, non-binary or trans people.

Sparked will then cycle users through speed video dates that last four minutes.

If both users have a good time, they can schedule a second date that lasts 10 minutes.

If the second date goes well, users are prompted to keep in touch on another platform.
