Mainstream Dating Apps and Their Special Features

 

Dating apps are great because there are people all over the world who are embarrassed to get to know each other traditionally. Dating apps help users break that wall right away and find their true love or friends. Let’s see what mainstream dating apps are worth being installed on your phone.

 

Tinder

This one belongs to famous options and has over 26 million matching users per day. It allows you to find potentially suitable partners in your area of ​​​​residence. You select the partner you like, and if he or she also selects you, a match occurs, and you can start virtual communication.

Since this service is very popular, there is a big audience and, accordingly, a lot of potential matches, so many subscribers simply add all the profiles in a row in an attempt to expand the network, without thinking if this partner is really right for them.

Tinder is undoubtedly a good app to build a relationship or just have some fun. Ultimately, it all depends on how you interact with it and what your ambitions are.

Badoo

Before Tinder, this was one of the most used dating apps. Although the popularity of the application has subsided somewhat, it is still very popular to meet and communicate with single people, and it has almost 450 million users. 

Many people use Badoo to find friends, not just to flirt. This app is especially interesting for women as it has several security features, such as stealth mode where you can view profiles anonymously, and the possibility to request photos in a chat to verify the identity of the other person. Badoo is available for Android, Windows Phone, iPhone, and Blackberry.

Bumble

This app sets itself apart from the first contact between potential partners. The unique thing about it is that it’s where women make the first move. The program will automatically calculate the best potential matches, and within a day, the woman will receive an invitation to send a message to this partner.

Bumble prioritizes sincerity and respect between users and reacts negatively if you constantly create matches with almost every member, just to get the most conversations.

Happn

It is a slightly different type of dating app as you are going to communicate with people with whom you have crossed paths in your daily life. Naturally, both parties must be on Happn to establish a potential connection.

The app marks the places you pass as you walk the streets. When another user passes by a place you’ve visited, their profile becomes visible to you. If you wish to contact them, you need to like their profile. If they do the same, the communication starts.

OkCupid

This math-based app will first question you and then provide you with profiles of users, revealing the percentage of compatibility with each. You can provide only the minimum required information about yourself, or you can answer all (several hundred) questions in detail.

Another interesting difference is that it is open to all kinds of sexual orientations and allows you to search for polygamous relationships, etc.

Grindr

This option has become one of the most popular apps for gay users, launched in 2009. This is a network for bisexual, transgender, and other non-traditional communities.

Users describe Grindr as a truly safe space where they can meet and connect with the right partners and interact with the broader community of interest.

Facebook Dating

The last dating app on this list is Facebook Dating. This is a new Facebook dating service, currently in testing and not yet fully available worldwide. However, with more than 2.5 billion Facebook users, this service was only a matter of time.

Since Facebook already has access to a lot of your personal information, you will soon be able to use this to your advantage and meet other interested parties on Facebook without the need for a dedicated app.

Before you sign up for any of these apps, remember that when you meet someone from the site for the first time, do it in a public place. Be careful with the personal information you provide (home address, bank account, etc.) and do not neglect security issues.
