A platonic friends app
Swipe or Scroll for Friends

Swipe right if you'd like to be friends with that person, or left to skip for later. If you both swipe right on one another, a mutual match notification is sent. You can join as individuals or as couples.
Strictly Friends. Absolutely no flirting

Patook is for friends only. We believe we have the most advanced flirt detection algorithm in the world, and it will ban and block any users who aren't here to make friends before you even hear from them.
Interest based matching

Detailed profiles and interest matching algorithms allow you to find people who share interests and opinions with you, and you can take questionnaires to refine your matches any way you'd like.
Local Community Access

You can also make public posts that are visible to all people nearby, and thereby kickstart conversations among people.
Privacy and Preferences

Only want to be visible to women? No problem. Women and gay men? Done. Patook allows you to customize who you can see and who can see you.
High reply and follow-through rates

Patook uses artificial intelligence to detect lulls in conversations and to help it keep going and suggest users actually meet. As a result, the reply rate for messages that are read hovers above 80%.

Testimonials from Users and Journalists


Sex-free service has a very clever way of making sure there's no funny business during 'platonic' relationships - Jasper Hamill, The Sun

I love that I'm not getting aggressively hit on when I'm trying to find platonic friends. This is the first friend finding app I've had any success with. Great job! - Stephanie

Patook is great, I am really excited to see it grow. Recently moved to Fresno and omg, its hard to make friends here :)) didn't think i would find anyone, but i did! Worth downloading for sure!! - Claudia

Great app to find friends Easy to create profile and set up points systems to generate matches, plus there are genuine people answering tech support questions! Also it's got a filter on private messages so it doesn't end up as another Tinder - Ben

This app has delivered everything that it promises so far. I love that the developers the whole platonic-friend-courting thing seriously and I have not received any unsolicited or NSFW messages so far. Really excited to see how far it will take off after launch day. - Rebecca
