    The problem:

    I want to chat with guys who actually want to meet up right now. The 'Right Now' status really just means 'Guess if I'm horny and if I am, which is not guaranteed at all, then... Maybe'.

    Proposed feature:

    Make 'Right Now' an expiring status (say 30 min) triggered by an action button that users can turn on when they are actually looking for right now.

    Tech notes:

    Don't over engineer this with cron jobs and caching layers; have the client do the work.

    1. Add a right-now-UTC-timestamp to the user obj that gets reset by the action button.
    2. Have the client add/remove the existing Right Now status based on the timestamp.

    This is a shiny new feature that users would love with super low effort. Tiny epic. Add it to your next sprint. Please and thank you.
