If you are looking for a dating app there are plenty of them in the market that you can go for. Here are 3 of the most popular dating apps with their pros and cons:
With over 7 million monthly users, Tinder is definitely a heavyweight when it comes to online dating. The app comes in two versions: the free and premium version. The premium version goes for $9.99 for one month where you have access to more detailed features than those found in the free version. All you need to do is download the app into your phone and create an account by adding a few photos. Using the app involves you swiping right on the profiles of the people that you like and left on the profiles of the people that you don’t like. If you swipe right and another person swipes right, the app reveals a match and you get an instant message. From there you can start a conversation.
The cool thing about the app is that it’s easy to use as all you need to do is swipe left and right. It’s also fun and convenient. Since it gives a lot of emphasis on looks, it’s a great place to meet people for casual encounters. While the app is great, it’s not great for you if you are looking for a serious relationship. While it’s not totally impossible to find a life partner on the app, it’s difficult. The median age of the users is 26 years. These are often young people that aren’t looking for a serious relationship.
It’s a geolocation-based app that helps you meet the people that you have crossed paths with in real life. The app makes use of GPS to monitor and notify you when you come across each other. When you see a photo of the person that you would like to meet, you can go ahead and like it but it remains a secret until the other person also likes your photo. It’s only after both of you have liked each other that you can start a conversation.
The main advantage with this app is that it’s easy to start a conversation as you already have something in common. If you don’t like long distance relationship you are in safe hands with this app as it only shows you the people that are within your area.
The downside of the app is that it can take you a lot of time before you meet someone. After you have got a notification that you have come across someone using the app in your area, you are always worrying whether you are looking good. This can sometimes interfere with your productivity at work. There is also the worry of whether the other person will like you when he/she sees you.
The app makes use of both the photo-heavy profile and geo-location in order to find the profiles of the people that you might be interested in meeting in your location. When you tap on the profile you will be able to chat, exchange photos and even reveal the location of the person that you are interested in. Just like Tinder, there are two app versions: free and paid.
In addition to the app being easy to use, it also has people with different sexual preferences. It has straight, curious, bisexual, and even homosexuals. This makes it an ideal app for any person. The main flaw according to the users is that it has relaxed law enforcement policies; therefore, when someone makes racist or inappropriate comments they are more likely to go unpunished.
There are many apps that you can go with. All you need to do is research and find the right one for your needs. Regardless of the app that you use always exercise caution and ensure that you don’t leak any sensitive information.
