Dating Help for Shy and Introverted People - Interview with Jon Pethke

Today, our guest is Jon Pethke, a United States Air Force Veteran out of Appleton, Wisconsin with a Bachelor Degree in Organizational Leadership who has developed a dating app specifically for shy and introverted people.

Jon started development of the app in 2022 when he founded Introwoo LLC and partnered with CodeGlo Technologies. Together, they developed CoyAmore, the dating app for shy and introverted people.

Join us as we talk with Jon about what inspired him to develop CoyAmore, how he developed the app, and how to use it. We will also take a tour of the app and his website to give the audience an idea of how it works. As an introvert himself, Jon will offer some dating advice to those who are shy or introverted and offer tips and tools to use in the dating world.

Jon is currently working on his Masters in Science Degree in Sustainable Management at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. He currently works as an Internal Auditor for American Family Insurance while also working part time as an instructor for Fox Valley Technical College teaching veterans about small business development.

Key points and Timestamps:

2:02: Jon explains why he developed CoyAmore

“Developing an App wasn’t easy at all” It took a year to develop CoyAmore, and it was released in May of 2023.

A lot of time and patience went into developing CoyAmore.

5:46 Jon explains how he developed the questions on CoyAmore specifically for shy and introverted people.

• Based around the 5 universal love languages and paired with people who best fit your love languages

• CoyAmore is different, and hopefully will help to create a community that helps shy and introverted people more comfortably engage with one another

• The hope is to create more features (like a “Blind Date” Option) which is a second layer of matching that takes the fear of asking someone out on a date.

8:45: Jon Explains how the App works, starting with the login process, and the intention of meeting up in person eventually. Tracy goes over the questions that CoyAmore asks when creating dating preferences.

Smoking, drinking, political affiliations, height, Astrology, Love Languages, children, pets and movie genres

For example: “What do you think about Astrology?” or “Cats or Dogs for Pets”

21:32: Tips for helping people feel more comfortable developing a dating profile

• “Get support and talking with someone to help” to be as comfortable as possible reaching out

“At the end of the day, to meet someone in any capacity you need to take a step out.”

More people have problems getting a conversation going to figure out if they want to go out on a date
