Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.
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.
The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.
When you exit back to the list, there’s no guarantee that it’ll be in the same order or that it will return you to the spot you scrolled down to, making it extremely obnoxious to keep track of what you’ve already viewed.
Worse, you can’t see who has liked you unless you pay for an upgrade. If you don’t reply, they’ll probably just keep on messaging you, too. Facebook verification helps block a percentage of bots and catfishers from creating accounts, so without it, Ok Cupid loses a level of accountability.
Sadly, you also will only be able to see the five most recent visitors to your profile unless you pay for an upgrade and — worst of all — anyone can message you. Download now from: i Tunes Google Play Coffee Meets Bagel is another dating app that piggybacks on Facebook.
Once you’ve set up your profile and input your preferences, it will send you one “bagel” a day, which is essentially the profile of a potential match.
As successful as it is forming long-distance relationships and successful marriages, Tinder has long been accused of changing dating into some form of hookup game.
But it’s the king of the dating hill for a reason and the first port-of-call for many daters.
That chat room expires after eight days, regardless of whether you’ve talked with your bagel or not.
You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.
Dating apps kind of suck — just ask anyone between the ages of 21 and 35.
