With the rise of photo apps like Tinder, it’s clear there are much quicker and quirkier ways to find your better half. The drinks are prepaid and Grouper tells you exactly where to meet up, so all you have to do is decide who should tag along. Maybe all three of you will find a love connection.
Whether you’re looking for friendship, a random hookup or location-based love, there’s a slew of dating apps and websites out there for every kind of single. Formerly called “Bang with Friends,” this app lets you find friends on Facebook who are willing to get down tonight. Friends won’t know who’s selected them unless the feeling is mutual.
Users can also search by shared friends or interests, then connect via a live instant messenger chat.
The “bagel” is based on specific profile information and preferences, such as religion, height and personal details.
Tinder is fast, fun and kind of addicting, which is why it seems more like a “hot or not” game than a site for true love connections.
Facebook profile photos of nearby singles appear randomly; users respond with an easy “like” or “nope” with the swipe of their fingers.
Matches who mutually like each other can begin the conversation via text.
It’s gonna cost about a month to move forward with a match, but Zoosk “learns as you click” in order to constantly deliver relevant matches.
