New online matchmaking service to be launched today |17 May 2021
Bouldou.sc is a new company that offers Seychellois an online matchmaking service. Nou metye se trouv lanmour/ Lanmour, konmans par pwente are a few of Bouldou’s slogans and targets.
The aim of Bouldou is to help the single adult over 18 years to connect with others through common interests, develop attractions and date online. Bouldou has several features that enable even couples looking to better their relationships through counselling as well as a platform for friends to come together and participate in various blogs. The main priority remains to find matches for the single adults who can eventually meet offline to proceed with what could lead to a serious consented and loving relationship.
Bouldou.sc will be launched today, Monday May 17, to commemorate the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. The purpose of this day is to help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide.
“We are living in the new normal,” says Betty Mondon, the founder of Bouldou. “We know that the use of social media has been more apparent over the past year and with our need to stay connected and with the restrictions on groupings, how can people meet, date and get to know each other? That’s where Bouldou comes in! We have a small dynamic team working to ensure that the single people out there have a chance and that our platform attains its objectives.”
All good and interactive websites have to be updated, introduce new features and deliver on customers’ needs and wants. Bouldou will be introducing features as and when ready, new levels and services, gifts for users to buy and have delivered to other users and more. Advertisement slots for public and private companies to use the space to showcase their businesses as well as upcoming events are available.
“In our creole tradition, our ‘granmoun’ went through the stage of ‘pwente’; they got to know each other before any physical or sexual activities. I hope in this new normal, we can still ‘pwente’ with Bouldou even if it is over the internet,” said Mrs Mondon.
“The hope is that Seychellois use this platform fully and respectfully. You often hear couples’ stories about how they met and I was always fascinated with couples who met on Facebook! I feel like many guys and girls are being let down on Facebook because it is not the ideal platform to seek a relationship of that level. Someone may not want you sending them a ‘Hi cheri!’ everyday for the past 2 years! But everyone on Bouldou will not be upset when they get a ‘Hi!’ or ‘how are you?’, ‘do you want to chat?’ because that is indeed the right platform.”
