All the single ladies and gentlemen will appreciate our curated list of the best dating apps you can find around. We know meeting people can be a little complicated. And even if it isn’t, a little help from these apps can never hurt, right?
If you are ready to spice up your life with new friends, relationships or whatever you may be ready for, you will find plenty of apps to aid you. The only issue is very few of them are worth their salt. If you are lost in the wilderness of dating apps, just check out our favorite options!
Tinder is probably the most popular app of its kind. It is now available in both Android and iOS, and it is simple as pie. You simply sign in via Facebook, set up your profile and start tindering!
This app works by creating encounters with people within your vicinity. You can set the distance you prefer and a few other preferences, like whether you want to meet men or women. When it’s time to get started you will be presented with a stream of images accompanied by a short bio.
You can tap on the image to see their profile, swipe left to “dislike” or swipe right to “like”. If the other user also “liked” you, you will then be connected and you can chat away. That simple! The app will also tell you if you have friends in common, which could be good or bad, depending on your personal preferences.
Plenty of Fish
Are there really plenty of fish in the sea? The classic saying may come to life with the Plenty of Fish app, one of the most popular dating applications around. With over 50 million users, you are bound to find your very own fish!
The application mixes in your profiles information with Tinder-like features to suggest the best dates around you. Plenty of Fish will offer you a list of people based on your preference. You can re-visit your curated list whenever you prefer. It’s a great app for new people, and it doesn’t lack a user base, which is usually the main problem.
Surely, most of you have at least heard of this service. OKCupid is a well-established and very popular dating service that aims to be more honest in its matches. Instead of asking direct questions, OKCupid makes you take tests and determines your personality.
Data is probably more honest than people and their perception of themselves. You can also rate profiles and connect with a huge variety of users. Their “Locals” feature is also pretty fun. It allows you to check who is around your area and is willing to meet up.
If you are into those spur of the moment meet-ups (which are the best, in my opinion), this is your best bet.
If you are down to… you know, anything, this is the right app for you. Previously known as Bang With Friends, Down does exactly what its old name suggests. It connects to your Facebook account and gives you a stream of friends and friends of friends.
You can say whether you would like to “date” or do some “fun stuff” with them. If the other person is also “down”, you will both be notified. You can take it from there.
Grindr and Brenda
We know the other apps are not exactly designed for the gay community, so we are giving you a section for gay men and women who may be interesting in finding a special someone.
Grindr is an app for gay or bisexual men looking for the right guy. Likewise, Brenda is a dating app for gay or bisexual women. They work very similarly, utilizing location to allow users to find profiles of nearby users.
