Tinder is a dating
app that everyone has heard of, and most of us have used. It can get quite
boring after some time. If you would like to get a bit more out there or are
wondering about other such services, then you have come to the right place.
Here, we will be
discussing other apps that offer the same services as tinder, meeting potential
dates. While everything is going digital, dating isn’t far behind. Buckle up
and read on- you might find your true love or your next one night stand here.
OkCupid is one of the biggest dating apps out there. You can link your
Instagram to your account. You have to answer questions, which you can choose
to make public. The answers you give make up the percentile that helps match
with the potential partners.
Hinge is a lot like
Tinder. The interface is a bit more pleasing though. This also makes you answer
questions but the fun of swiping. It can be a bit more accurate dating app out
there because it uses FaceBook to find matches for you. It connects you with
friends-of-friends-of-friends. If you would like to keep your interactions with
only strangers then this might be a little difficult.
Coffee Meets Bagel
Such a quirky name.
To me, it sounds like a dating site for all the creative people out there. It
requires you to log in through FaceBook to create a profile on the app. After
making the account and answering questions, you are then sent potential matches
known as ‘bagels.’ You then have 24 hours to like or pass your bagels.
Match is one of the oldest ones in the game. It does not require you to log in through your social media account. All you have to do is upload pictures and answer questions. The potential matches are called ‘winkable’ profiles and instead of swiping you ‘wink’ at them.
Bumble is gaining a
ton of popularity. It is a lot like Tinder but has its own personality. Here,
women are the key players. When opposite genders match, ladies have to initiate
the conversation. With the same gender, any one of the parties can message
first. Once matched, you can also extend the connect for 24 hours if you don’t
have time to send the first message right away. If you are a woman and don’t
like making the first move, then unless you want to date other women, Bumble
isn’t for you.
There are a ton of
dating apps available. All you have to do is try to see what works best for
you. Some focus on gender preferences, some are more thorough, and some are
vaguer. Some are popular for casual dates and some for long-term serious-something.
It all depends on what you are looking to gain from the experience of online
