Reality star Dr. Heavenly Kimes is taking her business savvy from dentistry to technology with the launch of her dating app, Piq.
Kimes, affectionately known as the vivacious Dr. Heavenly on “Married to Medicine,” recently debuted the dating service, which allows you to connect with a community of singles all in hopes of finding Mister or Miss Right. It’s specifically geared toward dating professionals who want to date casually or seek a long-term relationship without the “meat market” feel.
“People say they want real love, yet hold tight to superficial criteria for choosing who they date. Piq strips it all away and leaves what really matters - the connection,” says Dr. Heavenly, who is a certified relationship expert. “At the end of the day, you want to be liked for who you are - not for what you have, what you do for a living, or even what you look like. If you’re curious and open enough to give love a real shot, join the Piq community for an extraordinary mobile dating experience.”
On Piq users are able to swipe through the profiles of online singles, set icebreaker questions to “weed out losers,” schedule dates through a calendar feature and place interests in a “dating pool.” The app also has a “blind date” feature that randomly matches two profiles and allows them to chat anonymously and set an offline date without any prejudice.
And for you ladies out there scared the man you’re chatting with may be a potential psycho or serial killer, the app will also let you link out to purchase a background check.
Dr. Heavenly recently showed off the dating app at a launch party in Atlanta. The event welcomed fellow celebrity friends like "Real Housewives of Atlanta" newbie Claudia Jordan, and cast members Toya Bush-Harris, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Lisa Nicole Cloud, Dr. Jackie Walters and Dr. Simone Whitmore.
The true message of the app, Dr. Heavenly says, is doing away with users’ obsession with profile pictures, and instead focus more on getting to know the person.
