Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.The service also offers more specific preference options, meaning you can narrow your choices to certain religious beliefs or ethnicities, if those things are important to you.You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if any).
While there are a fair few people on Tinder who use it strictly to collect swipes, many people are actually inclined to meet up in real life, which is not always the case with dating apps.
Tinder is possibly the most popular dating app, too, meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
It might work on a dating website where that much information would presumably be read on a larger screen, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access.
Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.
