It's heavily branded with laddish imagery - like those red cups you see people chugging beer absent of in frat films - after that language too. It also appears a lot like a hook-up app. Accordingly is it a place for above-board, manly men to date other above-board, manly men? On further investigation, I think it might be a bit more nuanced than that.
