This was probably everyone's first online dating app. What I really like about this app is that you answer a series of questions about yourself.As far as online dating goes, it has your basic, easy features. They ask all types of questions from religious beliefs, social habits, to simply if you are a dog or cat person (I'm a die-hard dog lover so the answer to this question is vital). The part that gets a bit hairy is that anyone on the app can reach out to you leaving the door wide open for a huge creeper party. Ok Cupid ixnays mindless right swiping and attempts to add more depth to the dating scene. The mindless swipe right generation was birthed from Tinder, but I am guilty of feeling hot af every time I get a match. Although I have heard of those fairy tale Tinder success stories, the general connotation of the app is flirty and well... I would highly recommend this app for someone who is getting back into the dating scene after a while or for a casual hookup.These critical questions are then used to generate a match percent with each possible connection. If you have the patience to ween through cheesy pickup lines multiple times a day, then you might just find your hunk on OKCupid!Bumble is the app that women have been waiting for!It works similarly to Tinder's swiping right or left with a mutual swipe right being a MATCH.
When a match is created, the girl has to message the guy first within 24 hours or the match expires. It seems like guys will swipe, swipe, swipe until they get a match and then actually look at the profile and decide to pass.If both parties are of the same sex, either one can reach out first. A lot of guys on this app seem to have graduated from Tinder Academy with a B. But hey, who knows, maybe your future hubby has a clumsy thumb. They recently revamped their app to invite more personality and quirkiness to the world of online dating.Instead of just posting a few frat pictures and a shirtless photo from spring break 2012, the app helps you build a mini profile that allows you to answer a few questions scattered throughout your photos.Some quirks it suggests you share are your bucket list, a funny first kiss story, or just a list a binge-worthy tv shows.
In addition, it only allows you to "like" a limited number of profiles a day, ultimately eliminating the swipe right culture.
The downfall with this app is that it has now created the notion of mindless left swiping!
