It’s a new type of live random video chat site. It’s a live random video chat for straight adult people. On LuckyCrush, guys are matched with random girls, and girls are matched with random guys, through live video chat. They can chat speaking out loud or write to each other while seeing each other on webcam. A simple click on “next” allows changing partners. The chat can last a few seconds or several hours but remains as long as no any of the partners click “next”. This is not a dating site but just a chat site. It’s purely ephemeral. There is no physical meeting.
The flirtation is virtual, starts on the site, and ends on the site. Many people even use it to have naughty chats with strangers anonymously. It’s anonymous as users are free not to show their faces, and username is the only thing that other members can see.
It’s even prohibited to share personal details during chats on-site to guarantee it remains safe, anonymous, and ephemeral. Male and female registrations are regulated so that there is always approximately 50% of girls and 50% of guys online at any time. The goal is avoiding guys or girls to wait too much before getting paired up with a partner. In a sense, we can say that it’s « virtual flirting through a live video chat with random partners. We had a 50% increase in registrations during and after the COVID-19 global lockdown as people couldn’t do it in real life.
Question: Why are men only matched with women and women only matched with men? It may look intolerant toward the LGBT community.
Answer: The current system is optimized for straight people. Through registration regulation, we are trying to have 50% of male and 50% of female members with a maximum probability of having them interested in each other when they are randomly matched. A same-sex match-making process is under study but would probably lead to a dedicated chat site.
The chat site is available from desktop and any mobile device. The URL is LuckyCrush. There is no need to download any app. It has 1 million members from 100+ countries after only 1 year (created in 2019).
How do you start on LuckyCrush?
You just have to select your gender and click “Start searching”. You can browse a few partners before you are asked to register to continue chatting unlimited.
We tested “LuckyCrush,” where one man connects online with a woman, and it’s all just flirting.
The concept is original. Two participants, flirting, but no meeting in the end. LuckyCrush offers an interesting alternative to other dating sites in these times, where physical distance is still required.
Goodbye, Tinder, and other Meetic. Despite the end of containment, bars, cafes, restaurants, and cinemas keep their doors closed. Barrier gestures remain de rigueur. As you will have understood, dating is compromised.
To remedy loneliness, why not look into a new concept? LuckyCrush proposes ephemeral flirting without a physical encounter. This website, created in 2019, randomly selects two people and connects them by video chat, in the manner of Chatroulette (a random messaging site created in 2009). Rest assured, on LuckyCrush, the security rules are more serious than those of its predecessor at the time of its creation.
Match-making currently optimized for straight people
When going to the site for the first time, you’re asked to say whether you are a man or a woman. If you are a man, you will only be matched with women. If you are a woman, you will only be matched with men. Guys, you got it! No need to click “next” hundreds of times to find female partners like on most other random video chat sites.
“All you have to do is select your gender, and you are randomly connected with a person of the opposite sex,” says LuckyCrush. The site does not offer same-sex dating at the moment, for “conception reasons”, but a new version of the platform is in the pipeline.
Not satisfied with the flirting, next!
The rules of the platform appear when you first log in. Under penalty of banishment, it is forbidden to share any contact information and accept payments from other users.
The account may be suspended if no one is in front of the camera during conversations. On the other hand, it is not necessary to show one’s face, and nudity is not forbidden as long as both users agree.
The rules established the chat can start. “You can access it from a computer, a tablet, or a phone,” says LuckyCrush.
The conversation started, if the flirt is not satisfactory, the user can click on the “next” button and will be put in relation with a new person. The exchange can thus last from a few seconds to several hours—something to keep busy while waiting for the return of the cafés on the terrace.
