Tinder vs. OkCupid vs. Match vs. Happn: Differences Between Dating Apps
With so many different dating apps out there, how do you know which one is right for you? Don’t worry, here’s a breakdown of the four most popular options.
Before the digital age, you could try going to bars or other public places to try and find “the one”, but that doesn’t work so well now, especially with introverts. Fortunately, we live in an age ruled by apps and services on our smartphones to help us find our soulmate.
However, with so many different dating apps out there, how do you know which one is right for you? Don’t worry, we’ll break down four popular options so you don’t have to guess which one best suits your needs.
Tinder is the app of choice for most young people. It’s a location-based platform that’s currently only available as an app on both iOS and Android. And while it’s earned a reputation as more of a hookup app for most, there’s more to it than that (several other ways to use Tinder came up).
Not everyone on Tinder is just looking for a one-night stand, as there are some who are looking for serious relationships on the service. And others may just be looking for new friendships along the way.
How do you register?
Since Tinder is primarily aimed at a younger demographic, the only way to sign up for Tinder is through Facebook Connect.
While this may be convenient for those who like to use Facebook, it’s annoying for those who don’t have an account for whatever reason. Tinder has no option to sign up by email, so it’s Facebook or nothing.
In this regard, since Tinder essentially uses your Facebook profile, your Tinder profile picture will be the same. This means that if you want a more attractive picture on Tinder, you need to change your Facebook avatar too.
Swipe your finger
If you’re looking for a simple dating app, then Tinder is it. It’s the app that pioneered the popular swipe gesture that many apps use today to indicate a like or dislike.
With Tinder, it shows you photos of other users nearby. If you like what you see, tap this photo to show more information about this person. This profile information can make or break a decision. like them Then swipe the card to the right. I’m not interested? That’s right: swipe left.
If it’s a mutual, then you and the other person can send each other messages. Otherwise, you won’t be able to chat with that person.
Tinder is all about ease of use and fun. Users won’t be able to get too much information about someone from their profile alone, so it’s harder to build a serious relationship on Tinder alone. But if you’re just looking for fun, it’s great.
Tinder Plus and Gold
Anyone can sign up and use Tinder for free. However, like anything that’s free, there are occasional ads that pop up as you use the app. But with Tinder Plus, you can get rid of ads as well as get some extra features.
The biggest advantage of Tinder Plus is the ability to send Super Likes to those people you like. You’ll also be able to “rewind” your last shot in case you make a mistake or change your mind. Tinder Plus even allows the user to change their location within the app without having to be physically there.
