Lastly, if you’re looking for a serious partner and you fancy yourself a dime-piece someone with a reputable job and education, you may want to take a crack at applying for The League, a free dating app which searches through your social media and only allows you to join if you’re deemed “a catch” by the developers.Once you’re in, The League gives you four matches a day and allows you to (you guessed it) swipe left or right.
I've been hearing my girlfriends discuss their wins and losses with a variety of online-dating phone apps, so I'm breaking down the newest means of tech-based courtship.
Online dating has grown in popularity to the point where there is almost no social stigma attached to it.
It was created in Southern Germany in 2011 and boasts over 20 million worldwide users, though admittedly it’s more popular outside the United States.
Jaumo is free to use, though its “red carpet version” is available to users as well.
We’re not saying you shouldn’t have an account — swiping right and left is always going to be fun, and there’s something exciting about an app with over 50 million users — but still, you might also want to look elsewhere.
Before we go over the best apps for different people, here’s a look at the dating apps with the most satisfied users from a 2016 Applause report: Glancing at this data, we’ll note that Just Say Hi, the most popular video-based dating app, blows all competition away as the most-often enjoyed dating app on the market.
Surge is the second most beloved dating app in the data set above, and it’s the number one most highly rated app for gay guys.
All the apps listed in this section have options for guys looking for a serious relationship, but their primary function is to hook up strangers quickly.
GROWLr and Scruff are primarily for bears and cubs, but Hornet services guys of all physical types.
Hornet also allows users to talk to men all over the world, so you can experiment with chatting up strangers until you’re ready to meet up IRL.
Controversially, Jaumo allows users to geo-locate others on a map (if they’ve opted into that service), which might put some people off.
