5 best dating apps for Android
The dating game doesn’t change much. It always involves meeting someone, getting to know them and hopefully hitting it off and seeing how things progress. That being said, the dating game is a lot more accessible in a much easier manner these days thanks to technology.
Not only is the TV filled with dating reality shows, but your trusty Android device can help you meet the love of your life with a few simple taps. To help you find love, we’ve found 5 of the best apps on the market so read on to discover who you are supposed to be with!
Coffee Meets Bagel is a great idea which keeps things simple and to the point. Every day, around noon, men will get a list of women in the area. They can then decide who they like and try to match with them. The women will also get a list of men, however rather than being random, these are usually men who have shown some interest. It’s clean, user-friendly and doesn’t involve hours of searching through profiles.
Happn is another great idea, which has a nice spin to it which helps separate it from the crowd of social apps. It basically puts you in touch with real people who you walk passed in the street. Using your GPS, whoever you walk passed who also uses the app will be noted. If you pass them a few times, you’ll be able to start a blossoming conversation and see where it goes.
Anyone using an Android device for dating knows that Tinder is the one that started a trend. It’s completely free and you sign in with Facebook. Then you just swipe one way or the other on peoples photos. If you like them and you match with them, you can begin to chat and then go from there. It is known though that Tinder is used by a lot for one night stands and fun, so it might not be the perfect place for dating.
Plenty of Fish, or POF, is a great communication tool for one of the largest dating sites in the world. You can meet people in your area with your, hopefully expertly crafted, profile. You can also see who has viewed your profile, what you have in common with people and see who lives nearby. It’s great, although there is a pay wall you eventually can cross for additional features.
Bumble runs slightly different to most dating apps as it focuses on the female side of things. What I mean is rather than the man swiping or liking someone, matching and then needing to start a conversation, Bumble gives women 24 hours to initiate chat with any man they’ve matched. The men then have 24 hours to reply, else it is lost forever. If both parties respond then a normal conversation begins. It’s great to weed out the creeps and gives women the power to say what they want.
