You are probably wondering what U Feel Me is all about.

U Feel Me is a platform that uses an artificial intelligence algorithm to match people based on shared feelings and interests, allowing them to express their inner selves and match with like-minded people in a simple, effective, and meaningful manner. Fill out your hobbies, thoughts, and feelings first, and then let our algorithm match you with the people who actually matter. It’s a platform where you can quickly connect with those people, start a community and even participate in activities organized by like-minded individuals. You can limit yourself to one validating conversation, or you can have several. It is entirely up to you. By destroying diversity in order to create inclusivity, U Feel Me combats loneliness while also encouraging happiness. U Feel Me is a website as well as an app that allows people to connect and reveal their true selves through feelings.

UFM will begin as a digital platform and brand, such as an app, website, podcast, and YouTube channel, with the goal of eventually also becoming a physical platform.

What inspires me to do this? I’d like to address the issues and questions raised above, and I believe U Feel Me is the solution. What about making friends later in life, for example? How come you don’t have a feature on most social platforms that allows you to show yourself and connect with others in a non-superficial way? How is it that people between the ages of 16 and 24 can be so lonely? What about the psychological consequences of digitization and globalization? The world is becoming a global village, but is that what everyone wants? Isn’t it true that some people simply want to filter it? What about those who feel misunderstood? Alone. And the list goes on and on. I believe that U Feel Me can provide answers to many of my questions while also contributing to a more beautiful society.
