Thrill is a fresh, safe matchmaking application for India. Men can apply to join, and the female users vote guys up and down in the application list and only the best ones make the cut. Women get membership to the network automatically. Once a man is allowed to join he can anonymously find someone “Thrilling” or “Not Thrilling”. If that person feels the same, an intro is made and from there you’re on your own.
