In an era of technology where everything happens on screen, the best way to enhance the chances in our quest for love or simply just fun, a dating app comes handy. As our lives have become largely confined around our phones, dating app is a good idea to explore our love lives. And the digital world is flooded with some amazing free dating apps. Let’s explore some of them:
Tinder– One of the most popular dating app available and also an obvious first choice of many. Tinder has transformed the dating game totally by bridging distances and differences to suit one’s need and choice. Their mission acclaims- “Tinder makes being single more fun and rewarding by connecting people who may not have otherwise met in real life. We celebrate that being single is a journey. We stand up for how a whole generation chooses to live their lives.” Being a location-based app, it allows it’s users to use a swiping motion to choose their dating partners befitting their choices. The photos, name, age and some other additional information can be accessed on Tinder. This app also maintains privacy as nobody can message a person unless they express the interest.
eHarmony– User-friendly app with registration being free and easy either through Facebook sign up or by form sign up. A questionnaire is provided to the potential user for free after signing up whose answers are analysed through the eHarmony’s algorithm team and then matched with some potential dates and then after smiles can be sent. This app though does charge subscription for unlimited choices and features. However, they only send a few choices at a time so that one can analyse and review the matches at leisure.
OkCupid– OkCupid is also one of the most popular dating apps. Though signing up for it is a little tedious as one needs to fill an extremely long profile after the username creation, which can be linked to the user’s Instagram account. A percentile score is created by the answers in the profile questionnaire reflecting compatibility of users. However, in this app, only potential matches are shown instead of matched. Also, the pictures are small as compared to that of Tinder with the interface being extremely chunky. Another downside of the app is that anyone can message without a filter to you. Hence, privacy is compromised at this app.
Date– User-friendly and free dating site offering full access without any credit card requirement. The goal of this site is to ‘connect real like-minded singles. Matchmaking at no cost to you.’ Signing up is also extremely easy with just a few basic questions. Through this app, one can easily connect to the locals available online with free dating chat. A catch!
Hinge– It is very much similar to Tinder but a little different in functioning as it relies on the common interests of its users to create potential matches. However, since questions are answered by swiping motion, it is far less time consuming and becomes a lot more fun to answer. No unsolicited messages can be sent until matches. Pictures can be added through Facebook or Instagram, which can be a downside for someone who is not very active on either of them.
