In this day and age pretty much everything is online, from food shopping to dating. Focusing on the latter, here are 5 of the best dating apps on the scene right now to help you possibly find the one:
Founded in 2012 Hinge has been connecting matches for over a decade. With this dating app, you can build a profile with a selection of engaging prompts such as ‘two truths and a lie’, your ‘simple pleasures’, and your best travel stories all complemented by the inclusion of photos. On these prompts, people can swipe up and reply with an answer. This approach creates a fun way for others to learn more about you and your character.
If you’re looking for something long-term then Match is the place to go. Match.com comes in as one of the biggest dating sites in the UK with over 3 million users. Daters can enjoy an easy-to-use interface, detailed profiles and a powerful search tool that lets singles filter according to what matters to them.
Thursday is the new dating app that everyone is talking about. If you’re tired of online dating and would rather talk in person, then this is the app for you.
Every Thursday (hence the name) the app allows you to match with 10 people and arrange a date for that same evening. If you match with someone and you don’t message them that same day, then the match will disappear for good or roll onto the next Thursday. This aims to eliminate the possibility of lengthy talking stages and encourages in-person active pursuit. As a bonus, a series of Thursday Events are held in London at a specific location and time for singles from the app to meet!
With the majority of its users aged 25-34, Tinder is a great place for young people to explore dating in full swing. Again this is one of the most used dating apps in the world, allowing users to swipe through potential matches, add their favourite photos to their profile and easily instant message. Although the app is geared more towards casual dating, with effective communication, it’s still possible to find something long-lasting on the platform. Fingers crossed you’ll land on someone worth a right swipe!
With over 497 million users worldwide Badoo leaves singles completely spoiled for choice. Upon signing up users can select exactly what they are looking for on the platform from simply friends to a serious relationship. The app also allows you to video chat and call your matches before setting up a date in person. This can put nerves at ease and give you a taste of what to expect before a date.
And there you have it, five of the best dating apps that are not only dominating the UK dating scene right now but the worldwide one too. Happy dating!
