This app is like Tinder, but for finding your dream job instead of a bunch of dick pics
Swipe right on success, not mirror pics
You know there’s an actual, medical condition from swiping on dating apps too much? You can literally rip that little muscle between your thumb and index finger and what do you even have to show for it? A bunch of “haha and then what ;)” texts, some dick pics, and about a hundred new Snapchat contacts you never use.
Well fuck that. It’s 2018, and I refuse to use my hand strength on anything that’s not contributing to my success, health, and wealth. And guys who list “self-employed DJ” as their job definitely…aren’t.
Enter Shapr. It’s like if LinkedIn and Tinder teamed up to have the most convenient baby in the world. It’s built for networking, to find you your dream mentor, internship, job, everything. And it completely satisfies that need-to-swipe compulsion that washes over you the second you lay down in bed. We’re the idea generation, and that’s what Shapr is about: connecting you with valuable people who can make your dreams and ideas a reality — people you might not otherwise come in contact with.
Here’s how it works: download the Shapr app from either the App Store or whatever the Android version of the App Store is. Fill out the information the way you would a dating profile, and try to get as specific as you can. I’m sure you’ve already schemed your career out with demonic precision so that’ll be easy. Then, the app gives you a list of 15 professional contacts who could be a match. If you dig ’em, you swipe right (duh!) and if it’s mutual, you’re connected.
Shapr takes the terrifying-as-hell part out of networking, so it’s perfect for shy people with big ideas (also known as every artist I’ve ever met). It breaks the ice for you so you don’t have to do that thing where you gather in a ballroom and try to awkwardly hand out business cards to total strangers like the greatest scene from the greatest film of our time, How To Be Single:
Basically, Shapr the easiest thing you can do to turn your dreams into a reality. Why would you waste your time swiping on someone who’s just going to steal your scarf and ghost when you could be seizing the new year and going for it? Swipe. Match. Chat. Meet. I don’t know about you guys, but this is going to be the year I manifest everything I want, and this is the perfect first step.

This cuffing season, tie down your career with this app instead of another future ex
Finally, a meaningful, lasting relationship
by Natalie Clark and In Partnership With Shapr
I have a theory. My theory is that cuffing season is really a stupid concept constructed by someone at the height of a summer fling, who didn’t necessarily want their romantic entanglement to end after Labour Day, but also had no plans to have the “so what are we doing?” chat. So, they came up…
I switched out my daily Diet Coke for two weeks and DAMN I never knew my skin could look this good
I feel like a new woman
by hint water and Allison Sadlier
I like to think I eat pretty healthily. I mean, besides the massive order of waffle fries I devoured last night, but hey, I never said I was perfect. However, I will admit that I have one daily vice and that is Diet Coke. Ugh, I know soda isn’t supposed to be that good for…
This summer is going to be fucking wild, so we asked these girls their best ways to bounce back
Give me strength
by Care/Of and Natalie Clark
Everyone loves the summer for their own reason. Some people dream of wholesome picnics in the park. Others whisk away to white sandy beaches with glittering, crystal-clear waters. I, however, like to ensure that I am never more than 3 feet away from a gin and tonic. This is my calling – if summer is…
