Are you single and ready to mingle? Are you looking for a love that’ll last a lifetime, or just a nighttime? Maybe you just want to “Netflix and chill”. Either way, we’ve got the apps here that’ll help you find what you’re looking for. Make sure you read through them all first before downloading, as the last thing you want is to be on an app where you’re hoping to meet people who want to settle down, but instead, they’re all sending dick pics.
OkCupid has been around for a while. It can thank its longevity to it’s intricate matching system, based on countless amounts of data that’ll tell you within a percentage point who’s the perfect partner for you. Although, some have been calling it “OkStupid”, as its matching system is sometimes quite flawed.
They say the best way to meet someone is through friends. Well this is the idea that Hinge was based upon. Hinge cuts out the strange creeps on the scene by connecting you with your Facebook friend’s single friends.
Coffee Meets Bagel
Coffee Meets Bagel believe in bringing you quality over quantity. So it works by bringing you a single “bagel” (match) every days, then, you have 24 hours to decide if you like that person. If you do, then off to a private (virtual) chat room you go.
Hitch works very much like the hit movie of the same name with Will Smith, except that it lets your friends play the role of match-maker, setting you up with their single Facebook friends.
Grindr is the original hook-up app that inspired Tinder. Although, you have to be a gay or bi-sexual guy to get the most out of it as there are no women on it.
Bumble is the hottest app around now. Why? Mostly because it works just like Tinder, except, after swiping each other right, only the woman can send the first message. It’s essentially a female dating empowerment app that lets women control who messages them, while letting guys know that someone’s actually interested in connecting.
If you don’t like our suggestions thus far, then you can always go back to Tinder. The first straight swipe left / right app that turned every single person in the world into a superficial narcissist. But we’re not knocking it here. Tinder is still the go-to app for all your Netflix and chill needs.
Brain & Mouth
No, this isn’t an app that goes on your phone. It’s an app you were born with. If you’re too old-fashioned, or find these apps just don’t work for you, then we recommend simply going up to someone and talking to them in person. It’s truly still the best way. Not sure what to say? Try asking them what dating app they are on. If they mention one, say, “Ok cool, I’ll download it and swipe you right”. If they say they’re not on one, then say “Oh, that’s too bad. I wanted to swipe you right.” From there, you’re on your own to advance the conversation. Good luck!
