Cuddle Personalities

First Year Anniversary of Cuddle Mobile Apps and Cuddle Site Launch

Our Cuddle Toddler is almost approaching 1 year! A quick look back!

Back in the year 2005-2006, one of us launched a community dating and match making online website services. It was a great experience and one of the memorable smooth journey!

After being away from the online industry for few year, one of the days we got together in or around August of 2018 to discuss launching first ever mobile apps for Cuddling Community.

That very evening, one of us started to explore what all ready-made design themes are available and what all open source code base was accessible to build mobile apps with minimum features. Within no time we had the first alpha version of our cuddle mobile apps ready for both Android platform and iOS platform. While we were building cuddling app for smart phone and smart devices, we also created our new cuddle site.

While the techies were busy with coding the apps and site, one of us felt the need that we should create some short valuable videos for our snuggling community members and snuggle professionals. One of us stepped-in to start creating concise, and focused short cuddle videos and professional cuddle therapy online training videos too. Information oriented Cuddling Videos creation was probably one of the fun parts!

Developing apps (and site) was probably the most easy part for the techies! We did an alpha launch of the new cuddle apps and site by December end 2018 / early January 2019. We know, We know – we had few bugs, issues, and challenges with our mobile apps and site. Like every new site or apps, there are always some glitches or kinks that gets uncovered after launch :-). We are constantly working towards improving our apps and site experience. We could have probably done a better job with our aggressive regression testing. It was a lesson learnt and we are working on improving our production roll-outs here onwards!

Probably it was not the best decision to divert some of the resources to build the website for cuddlers along with mobile apps. Our primary goal was to build a full blown mobile app for cuddling community as there was none existing at that time and there is none existing till date! But looking back, we are glad we did the website too as we have found that we are able to equally attract valuable cuddlers to our site as much as we are attracting to our mobile apps.

Guess what was the hard part? – The hard part was within few weeks of the launch without even starting any marketing, we got swamped by fake profiles, scammers, impersonators, and what not! We felt like we were caught completely off-guard. We struggled for few days/weeks trying to manually chase down the origination points and block them step at a time. We had a realization it wasn’t a sustainable model, so we dropped all our improvements we were working towards and diverted our resources and energy towards figuring out measures we can take to curb fakers.

While we implemented several measures at each level from the point of entry into our snuggle apps and site, we learnt dealing with this fake is going to be an ongoing challenge. We were glad to notice that with the various measures we implemented, we almost noticed over 70% reduction in the fake profile influx. That was a definite win!

We understand in doing so, we might have implemented some false positive situations or un-required gates for our genuine members. But rest assured, our actions were in an effort to improve our member experience in the longer run. We are open to suggestions always. So please keep the communication channel open with your candid feedback!

It has not been an easy first year for us. But it was for EACH of you and your constant support, help, and kind words – that has kept us going! So we wanted to thank our growing snuggle community for the overwhelming support at all fronts!

There is so much more to share but we will save it for next time.

What a memorable first year!

Platonic Cuddling is Different Yet Intimate Than Sex, Hook-up, or Dating

Do you think that love promotes a healthier, better, and happier life? Well, many of you would believe this statement but still confuse the true definition of love. Love comes in multiple forms including filial, parental, romantic, and platonic. Any form of love can lead to spiritual wellness, peace of mind, and relieve you from unwanted stress.

Have you ever been into a platonic friendship? Well, platonic love is a unique spiritual emotion towards one another that many don’t find in one-night stands, ordinary relationships, and hook-ups. Similarly, here at Cuddle Connect, we strive to connect people looking for a platonic, non-sexual, cuddle buddies to avail the best snuggling experience possible.

How a Platonic Relationship or Cuddling Differs?

The very first example of how cuddling or a platonic relationship is greater than sex is of a mother. We all have witnessed mothers cuddling their new-borns and making physical yet skin-to-skin touch. Similarly, you’ll see pets cuddling each other or someone who is upset laying his/her arms into a close friend. Yes, cuddling is far more intimate than sex or dating.

Cuddling can either be adapted to create a strong bond, share untold feelings, and even relieve stress after a hectic day at the office. So where to find someone who is as needy, penurious, or stressed as you? This is where platforms like CuddleConnect comes in handy.

Cuddling site vs Online Dating sites – how are they different?

If you are still concerned about the differences between platonic cuddling vs online dating or hook-up sites, following is a brief chart to educate you:

Human touch plays a key role in physical as well as mental wellness. When you don’t get an adequate amount of human base regularly for a long time, it may result in anxiety, stress, and other therapeutic issues after a hectic day or weekend. This is where Cuddle Connect comes in handy.

Note that when you are into a platonic, non-sexual, and amicable friendship, itis entirely different from ordinary relationships, one-night stand, or a hook-up. Still, people feel a lot free, happy, satisfied, and intimate while cuddling.

Touch Medicine

We encourage our readers to watch our Cuddling the Unspoken short video series. It’s a worth watch for everyone especially who are new to the overall Platonic Cuddling concept!

TOUCH THERAPY

Cuddling is a part of the Touch Therapy industry. Many people who go through this therapy are definitely not children but they are children in their heart and soul and they know they are missing something but just can’t put their finger on it because it is buried so deep in their subconscious that they can’t readily remember it, until they seek help for that gaping hole, wanting and desire.
The need to be touched or hugged, manifests itself through your insatiable desire to be wanted, appreciated, recognized, needed and desired to the point where you find yourself sacrificing your needs for someone else thinking that by doing so, they will love you back or they will want you and love you.

Sadly, it doesn’t work that way and what it does is really the opposite–deepen your wounds further, that needy behavior; until you recognize that something is wrong and it needs to be fixed NOW!

Being A Child Again

Let’s go back to being a child again. You were innocent. You were dependent on your parents or caregivers to love and take care of you and to raise you to be a healthy, independent thinking, fully functioning human being that can manage on its own as you grow your wings and fly. Touch at that time in your life and in your mind shouldn’t have been earned or transactional; in other words, you shouldn’t have to do something right or well to impress your parents, siblings and others to be touched, hugged or loved.

And when we speak of touch here, we speak of healthy touch. A child as well as an adult instinctively knows when a touch is healthy versus unhealthy and there are many books and resources available online about the differences and maybe soon, we will add value to that archive in the near future.

We at CuddleConnect.com have created these training courses and informational resources to help everyone craving for touch or connection!
