Find your next no-strings-attached romantic encounter on LoveRoom.

LoveRoom is a new online platform that launched last week with the intention of helping people find a place to stay for free. There’s one significant catch however, the only people who are able to use it are those deemed “attractive enough” by the community. It claims it can help you to find your soulmate, but the company’s definition may be something closer to a one-night stand.

Here’s what greets you on the LoveRoom homepage:

A platform where single people from all around the world can rent their living space to others under one condition: they need to be attractive.

You would be forgiven for thinking the website is the love child of OkCupid and Airbnb, but just to be clear, it has no affiliations with either of the established brands.

If you’re concerned about inviting a stranger into your home, the company has posted six tips to help you avoid any problems. Some of the advice isn’t exactly new, “do some research on the person,” and some of it isn’t exactly useful either, “make sure your host is a hottie!”

The site also asks you to answer questions such as “Tub or shower?” and “Carpet or hardwood?” so that other members can determine if they would like to share a room with you. You can also upload photos, add friends, and send private messages to get a better idea of your potential host/guest.

So far the idea, which Josh Bocanegra came up with last month, doesn’t make a lot of sense to people. Fast Company also pointed out that only 41 members signed up on its beta launch, which could be a sign there isn’t really a demand for this kind of service. That’s a decision you have to make on your own though, and if it does appeal, you can look forward to the full launch which is slated to take place on Valentine’s Day, 2014.
