The O/B Hot List

Bozinder: a new dating app for Bozeman.

An indelible part of the Bozeman ethos is to ditch the 9-to-5 and spend more time in the mountains and on the rivers. We’ve rejected the big-city mentality of working ourselves into happiness, and we place a higher value on our hobbies. So, why do we think the standard dating apps meant for city slickers will work for us? In short, they won’t. Which is why there’s now a dating app specifically designed for southwest Montana singles, especially those who think a day on the Madison makes the perfect first date. It's called Bozinder, and here’s a snapshot.
