GirlsAskGuys is a digital community meant to close the gap between genders by bringing them together to help each other. Women and men discuss lifestyle issues such as dating, relationships, fashion, and health by sharing their experiences and opinions to help the opposite sex understand their own.
There are three additional versions of GirlsAskGuys in other languages: the Turkish KizlarSoruyor.com launched in 2011; the Spanish EllasSaben.com launched in 2014, and, the Brazilian Portuguese ElasSabem.com in 2015. In September 2013, the company raised $1 Million in its first funding round to grow its presence in Latin America.
On GirlsAskGuys, users ask for feedback and opinions. The two main features allow asking questions of the opposite sex, and posting "myTakes", a way to share experiences without having to ask a question.
Upon subscription and through site participation, members earn Xper Points, which later can be redeemed for gift certificates or other exclusive features. Xper Points also allow members to advance levels, called Xper Levels, which is an indicator of member activity and experience.
Top users are awarded Editor status, which allows them to create articles, as myTakes, with rich media embedded to give prominent users an additional way to help the opposite sex.
