No wonder they say men and women are from different planets. Men are from Mars and, my fraternity, i.e. Women are from Venus. Ladies, that doesn’t mean your partner is an alien. Jokes apart, there are significant differences in our personalities, our liking, the way we see the world and our approach when it comes to taking to the opposite sex. Right? Of course, that is. But one common thing in our personalities is our love for dating.
We naturally tend to get attracted towards the opposite sex, and the ratio is similar in between the residents of mars and the natives of Venus.
All right, folks, it’s the 21st century now, and my idea of writing this article is to help thousands of Adams and another thousand of Eves meet each other with the help of popular dating apps.
So, reaching this piece of article denotes two crucial information about you. Either you are in the search for the best dating app or you are seriously looking for your perfect match. In either of cases, the write-up is going to give you significant hints. The world of dating has not changed for past some years, but a massive number of dating apps have arrived only to make it harder for all the Eves and the Adams to choose the best app. For the same reason, it won’t go wrong to claim the world of dating apps another ballgame these days.
The endless roster of activities, the new trends, the way of approaching a new match is all mesmerizing for non-so-versed-Adams and Eves. The range of such apps has gone to such an extent that today it is not only the right or the left swipe that works for you, but there are also food preferences to let the Romeos romance perfectly with their best-match Juliets.
Right from taking hints of users you follow on Instagram to getting your likings from Facebook profiles, dating apps are leaving no stone unturned to bring forward the best dating choice for you. So, with such a practice, you need not worrying about those who don’t like you as these sites will only provide you with matches that you like. All in all the world of dating apps is becoming wider making it harder for users to get the perfect match.
A few years ago, the game was not the same as it is today. For having fun with your new date, you had to stick to your computer screen to chat. But all thanks to the new dating apps that we have a plethora of options now to choose from. We have done extended research to find out the best dating apps. Here is the list of the best apps that gets your date matched with your preference.
Tinder is the modern day dating app for all the peers and the pros and our very first choice for many reasons it offers to us. Tinder has remained the boon for lovers maintaining their long-distance relationships to take it to another level. Tinder gives it all to you from swiping option to mix-matching you to the perfect choice. The best news for new Tinder applicant is users need not having a Facebook account to enable the dating app. But the users must be above 18 years of age to use the application. Once, you are done with the download, the next step is to write 500 characters of bio to add to the profile.
Another application that doesn’t require Facebook login to create the profile. The users need to set up their profiles by entering their preferences. As per the choice of the users, they will receive a“bagel” a day, that is the profile of a potential match. Within 24 hours the users need to decide whether they want to “like” or “pass” the bagel to others. In case the users and the potential bagel like each other, they will be matched.
That means the users would get to connect with each other in messages through a private chat. Despite the fact, the users like their legal or not the chat room expire after eight days. There is an option for the users to earn beans that allow them extra app functionality. The users can either buy the beans or can get them outright by recommending the app to the friends.
Hinge is a bit like Tinder, actually a lot like it. Though both the dating apps strike some similarities, there are key differences too. Talking about the interface, Hinge looks like a newly-born sibling to Tinder. Looking at the functionality, the app gets your Facebook friends to make connections. The app also connects the users to the friends of friends of friends.
It only shows the people in common so your match may know about you. The app suggests you matches with only those having interests similar to you. The dating app asks a number of questions to the users in order to offer them a match as per their liking. Swipe right as a yes if you have done the activity. Swipe left in case you have not done it.
Happn gets you local dating choices near you. It uses user’s GPS Location to get matches close to them. To get the match, the app asks several questions to the users in order to get them, someone, they like. The criteria are matched upon where do you live, what are your preferences and what would interest you the most. The app works wonderfully to match the path of two strangers when they cross the path in real. If you like the match, you can then connect as well as chat with the person. There is an option to buy coins as in-app purchases. Just like Coffee Meets Bagel, the coins help to add functionality to increase the matching visibility for the users.
Another application that doesn’t require the Facebook login. Although the users need to create a username along with filling up a profile, which can be connected to Instagram account (which is almost giving a part of your profile authority to Facebook as it owns Instagram). The questions are obvious to make it easier for you to match with a potential profile. And it’s not all. The app asks what you would like to see as the answer to your potential match. This streamlines the searches and increases the probability of finding the best match for a user.
To browse a profile you like, all you need is to tap the “matches” option, which, works to show the people you could potentially match with rather than the ones you have matched with. It is a lot interesting and one of the best options. okCupid has both positivities and a few downsides similar to Tinder. But, the app does its work pretty well to offer you the potential match.
While having your research on the list of dating apps, you would find a number of blogs claiming Match.com the granddaddy of all. It’s another app that requires a signup instead of Facebook login. The signup process requires you to add photos, complete information along with answering some of the questions that would help the app put potential matches in front of you. The app works differently. The idea of flirting with this application is to wink at someone to get connected. There is a massive database from where you can find people to wink at. It is quite an innovative attempt to add something new in the dating applications.
The app offers suggestions as one match a day. It thus gets easier to choose the potential match. To get the most from Match.com users need to have a subscription. It offers additional, perks, more services and a whole suite of added functionality for users to enjoy the same.
PlentyOfFish (POF) is one of the oldest applications that is offering suitable dating matches to the folks for quite a few years. It has a massive base of 90 million users and that is how the app is able to dominate the market. So, as a PlentyOfFish (POF) user, you are going to find a number of matches. Also, with that many users, it is obvious to find a suitable match as per the preference. The app is very much likely to offer you a match within 24 hours of registration. That’s quite a big offering from this dating application.
PlentyOfFish (POF) has plenty of other features to offer to the users. It is a lighter version of the application having Tinder’s swiping mechanism and Happn’s ability to provide you with matches near to you. It makes icebreaking easier for the users by quoting any favorite part of their potential match’s profile. The app takes a chemistry test of profile’s likes and dislikes in addition to presenting quiz of their likes and dislike. It thus ensures you get the best profile.
Hater is an innovative and unconventional dating app that doesn’t follow the path other apps seem to follow. All the applications listed above have one thing in common. They get matches as per your likes, preferences, and the requirements you have posted in your bios. Contrary to these apps. Hater gets you to meet someone who dislikes your dislikings. So, basically, it works to find you someone matching your dislikes. The app can be logged in with the help of Facebook profile by using the phone number. After that, you can add your profile pictures and birthday along with providing other essential details.
Users can change their preferences by adding the gender type they would like to match with. The app working is much similar to other dating apps, which includes a swiping functionality that says swipe right if you like the things and swipe left if you don’t like them. The app is entirely different from others with a plethora of offerings that is as much amazing as it should be. So, to all those who prefer a path less traveled by can get the app to find the perfect match.
Another swipe-it-right for like and left for unlike app for the users. The big catch with Bumble is a bit different. It is not conventional and appears to be a lot modern. So, justifying its modern-built-in features, when two people of opposite genders get a match in common, the women are supposed to message first. Isn't that amazing?
The women have 24 hours to message the guy as the connection disappears after a day. Well, the guys can extend matches for another 24 hours if they are looking forward to hearing from the women. In some cases, ladies can also extend the time limit if they are busy somewhere and forget to drop a message. As far as the case of the same gender is considered, either of the person can initiate the conversation first. The game with Bumble is totally different.
To sign up to the app, the Facebook login is not the only way. Following Cambridge Analytica controversy, the team behind Bumble has now added an additional method to create a profile. The profile creation needs adding your phone number and thus you are done with the same. The users can then upload the photos along with filling the information they would like others to know about themselves. The signup option with the Facebook is also there. The users can opt for any of the options they would prefer.
MeetMe is another local-based dating application that offers you a match from the nearby location. The interface is simple but colorful enough to attract the users. There are over 100 million downloads that speak for the popularity of the application among the users. An easy sign up lets you use the app with a comfortable interface. Another exciting news about the dating app is, it offers you video chatting option. The option becomes one applicable to those who are looking forward to getting into a healthy relationship. The app works quite similarly to any other dating application.
MeetMe asks you about your interests in order to find a match that could suit your level of interest. The long list of users makes it even better to get the right match with those who share similar interest. However, it is suggested to remain to beware of the fake profiles as the app had remained a victim of such cases in the past. Apart from this concern, it is extremely comfortable to use the app with the utmost comfort. MeetMe has helped a number of couples get their relationship to the next level by getting a perfect match as per the preference.
Clover is the ultimate dating app not because it gets you to meet your date but because it gets you closer to them. Like any other popular dating application, Clover also asks about your dating specifications in order to get you a preferable date. Just like other prominent apps, Clover does the same for you. It gets you meet new people around you, set up real date and let you join people to get profound matches. The chatting feature is available with in-app purchase and thus the users need to get the app for a small amount of money. The reviews for Clover are exceptional and thus it becomes important to give it a try.
This brings an end to our list of dating applications having some exceptional names that younger generation is using across the globe. All the names are prominent in the dating world and thus it is worth giving them a try. Do try one or some of these apps and let us know your preference in the comment section here.
