Throughout human history, dating has changed dramatically, and Americans today are increasingly looking for love online. There are, of course the traditional kind, but more of us are opting for the no-strings sex variety? Don’t want to be stuck in one lane? “Tinder sucks,” if they say, we always have something more exciting, like Passfeed, Badoo and Happn. No matter what type of relationship you’re looking for, we put together top 10 hookup apps so we could give you a breakdown discussing their wins and losses.
Passfeed is a dating app for college students to meet hotties nearby. Unlike other hookup apps, Passfeed will help you to find coolest people near you instantly. You can share wonderful feeds and pictures in life instantly with people nearby, and you can also find interesting things and news in Explore by fresh tags.
Millions of people are already connecting and dating through Passfeed every day. Moving your dating life from online to offline, from mobile phone to a coffee shop or night club, from a chatting avatar to a real person, Passfeed can be one of your great choices.
OK, the claim that “Her connects you to every lesbian worldwide” is a bit of a stretch, as every lesbian worldwide definitely does not have this app. So it’s a little hyperbolic. But Her is certainly is the most popular app for women ISO women, and the interface is clean, easy to use and handsome. Whether you’re down for dating or looking for love, Her is certainly worth a download.
From the minds of previous Tinder executives comes Bumble, a newly released iOS app that lets women run the show. Like Tinder, Bumble lets users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If two users mutually swipe each other right, they are allowed to chat, but here’s the kicker: Only women can initiate the conversation, and they only have 24 hours to do so before the connection disappears.
Tinder blazed the trail, set by Grindr, toward a world of swipe and scroll dating apps. On its face Tinder encourages you to make shallow, snap judgments about potential partners. You create a simple profile with a handful of photos and a few sentences about yourself, then throw yourself at the Internet’s mercy. The appdisplays singles in your area. If you like one, swipe the photo to the right; otherwise, swipe to the left. If you both swipe right, you can send messages and set something up. New features include GIF messaging, uploading profile photos from your phone and the ability to ‘like’ chat messages.
Tastebuds is a dating app that highlights music tastes to ascertain compatibility. You can link it to your Facebook account or not, depending on your preference. You can also make your profile as detailed or sparse as you like — character limits for each question, which are mostly centered on music, are pretty high. Once started, you can flick through individual profiles to view all the information the user has included, including song clips from artists they like. You can “like” a person if interested, and if not, simply “skip” them. You can even send a song or message users before or after they match with you.
The overall experience is also enjoyable. The user interface is clean and simple, and creating your profile is uncomplicated, allowing you to use both Facebook and non-Facebook photos. Even if profiles are a bit long, they’re never cumbersome and only include what you actually filled out. Listening to a song that the person likes while scrolling through their profile is also an added personal touch, as is being able to send someone a song. It’s the updated, truncated version of making someone a mixed tape. Moreover, a lot of people use the app to find friends and concert buddies, as well as dates. Of all the information dating apps use to determine compatibility, music seems the least arbitrary.
Unfortunately, Tastebuds is not without its drawbacks. There isn’t a place in the app to see all people you’ve matched with — just those with whom you’ve started a messaging thread. The app also only plays clips of songs and they occasionally stall, which is annoying, especially when someone has a longer profile and a good song selection. Possibly our biggest complaint with Tastebuds, though, is that it is very easy to accidentally skip someone you didn’t mean to skip. There are a few reasons it’s easy to unintentionally skip someone, most of which have to do with the way the app is laid out. Simple fixes, such as positioning the “like” button on the right and using a different motion to view addition profile photos, would help immensely. We can dream, right?
Coffee Meets Bagel
Here, you get a ‘bagel’ match a day based on your personal preferences. If you both end up liking each other, a private chat is set up that expires after a week.
Coffee Meet Bagel lets you focus on one match a day as opposed to many many matches to sift through. Although it isn’t as high frequency as Tinder, for example, it is typically for more serious daters and people generally seem more engaged on the app.
There are less things to worry about and no more multitasking!
