Online dating is making its way to the top. It’s quickly getting out of the dark zone to being fully accepted by society. Online dating is the best way to get in touch with someone if you’re not the most sociable guy on this planet. Why? Because you can think and rethink what you want to say and how you want to say it. Plus: the barrier that the screen offers, makes a huge difference in feeling comfortable talking to women. But which apps give you the best chance to actually train your dating skills ànd maybe even score an actual date?
Welcome to the world of slow dating! In the free version of Once, you’ll get one perfect match per day, based on your profile. The good thing is: there is actually a human matchmaker who screens your profile which makes it more reliable. From the moment you get your match, you have 24 hours to get in touch with her and have a private conversation. You only have to pay when you want to get in contact with someone who isn’t your match of the day, or when you want to text someone who hasn’t liked your profile.
It exists since 2013, which is relatively short, but it has become such a hit that almost everyone knows ànd uses it! It’s the most popular dating app of the moment because it is so easy to use! Just swipe left or right when you like or dislike someone based on their picture. Be prepared for nudity, as some people have made it their goal to be obscene and provocative. But good for you guys, those people turn out to be mainly masculine. Women tend to be a little bit more caring about their account. The fact that you will have to filter, doesn’t mean your perfect match can’t be on the other side of that screen. Meanwhile, the first Tinder babies have been born. Lots of success stories here!
This app focuses on finding matches based on location. Happn shows you people who are or recently have been on the location you’re at. It’s the perfect app to make connections in a place you haven’t been before or if you have been away from home for a long time and you have missed a part of real life. Also a great way to optimize your social life when you moved to another place.
Great app for men who have issues to start a conversation! Only the ladies can start a conversation through this app. As a man, the only thing you can do is post the perfect profile picture and wait until someone reaches out to you.
More and more dating sites have a dating app, next to their regular website. Examples are Parship and Elite dating. Same thing for OKCupid who started off as a website, but gained more and more success as an app. Signing up for this app is easy and free. You log in with your Facebook account and after some (easy) steps, you’re good to go! These steps are answers on some questions which will be used to link you to women. The more questions you answer, the more possible matches of course! Using this app will give you the opportunity to meet women who are confident that you are trustworthy as women who used to be convinced Twitter-users, say the good men have moved to OkCupid. Worth a try if you’re looking for a solid relationship rather than a quick encounter.
