He’s on Hinge, and he is probably messaging you right now.
OK, so this one isn’t technically an Android app (yet — you can still access it via the mobile web, however), but the concept is such a refreshing take on internet matchmaking that we had to include it.
Here are the top dating apps you should be using to find love (or a quick hook up) and the type of people you will meet on each. If you both swipe right, it’s a match and you can begin communicating.
Tinder has been dubbed little more than a “hook up” app by concerned parents and conservative fearmongers, but if you think it’s that easy to find a little fun in the sheets you will be sorely mistaken. The fact that they are on Tinder suggests so, but they would never admit it.
That Grouper sets up two groups of friends (three guys, three girls) on a pre-arranged date at a local bar or restaurant — complete with a concierge for introductions and a round of drinks — is novel. The fact that these group encounters tend to dissolve quickly and you’re no more likely to hit it off with your match than with any other app on this list — with or without wingmen. The other was dragged along by her friend and is only there for moral support.
For guys: With three options you can’t lose, right? This leaves one eligible bachelorette who will no doubt take an interest in any other member of the group that isn’t you. For girls: You thought one dude from the internet lusting after you was creepy enough? While Grouper presents its group scenario as an innocent way for guys and gals to meet in a comfortable, friendly setting, don’t think for a second that one or all of the guys isn’t hoping the situation might devolve into an orgy that would make even Caligula jealous.
If you’re lucky, you might stumble across a sensitive hipster who will likely bring up the idea of a long-term, committed relationship on the first date.
Hinge aims to take some of the creeper factor out of the dating app genre by setting you up with potential matches that already know your IRL friends.While Ok Cupid has always focused on pairing up couples via a match percentage determined by completing a series of questions covering life views, relationship etiquette, and personal opinions, their mobile app has been updated to include Tinder-like picture swiping. Expect plenty of messaging before setting up an inevitably awkward first date at a local coffee shop or bar.While not as immediately satisfying as Tinder in that regard, it does add a bit of life to the search for Mr. For guys: You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words?Sure, there might be some nice guys lurking somewhere on Tinder, but most conversations start with an icebreaker along the lines of “OMGZ SO YOU WANT TO SEE A DICK PIC OR WHAT!?” This internet dating stalwart tends to attract individuals often described as “alternative” and is a haven for lonely hipster singles.For girls: With Ok Cupid you pretty much have two options: Fedora Guy or sexual predator.
