Out of the apps on this list, Zoosk is most like Tinder because its 38 million members are mostly younger singles and it has a fun matching system called the Carousel.
You’re presented with a compatible profile based on your criteria, and then you can tap the check mark if you like the person, the X icon if you don’t, or “Maybe” if you’re not sure and want to decide later.
There’s a plethora of dating apps out there, and they all try to differentiate themselves from each other, and some manage to do that, but when it comes down to it, they all do the same thing: replicate the already terrible process of finding a date in real life.
Some though, do it better than most, and some hookup apps target different segments of the dating market; there are apps for finding people to hook up with, apps for long term relationships, and apps for those looking for semi-casual, short-term dating. Here are the three apps for every type of relationship: Pure, Coffee Meets Bagel, and Tinder.
In June of last year, on a whim and mostly out of boredom, Abuhamdeh mounted his phone next to the register and began to broadcast his day on You Now, a live streaming service. People would walk up and pay, he would ring them up, and then as they left, nail them with a zinger spoken to the camera.
But I was nervous, I felt like there were people watching. It was weird.” After a few weeks of broadcasting he began to find his rhythm.
CMB might not be as refined as other dating apps, but rather than select random people from a pool based on characteristics they have, CMB takes friends of your friends, and recommends people to date out of that pool based on what you want in a partner.
The catch with CMB is that you only get one bagel per day, so you’ll need to come back to the app each day if you don’t get a great recommendation right away.Here’s how it works; you sign in, and create a profile that’s basically just a selfie, and after that your mission is to find someone near you who wants to hookup.Each post you make is like a shoutout about you, and it lasts one hour; users near you will see your selfie, and if they’re interested you’ll be sent a notification and you can set up a meeting time if you like them back. Not everyone is into casual sex, and if you’re the type to date people long-term, I’d recommend downloading Coffee Meets Bagel.Tinder doesn’t take much to find you a match, as all you need to do is create a rather simple profile and it does the rest of the work for you- now you just need to swipe left or right. Tinder has a TON of users, and there’s bound to be plenty of stinkers out there, and you will have to swipe quite a lot to find a match.If they like you back, you’re able to chat with them and set up a date or time to shag, whichever you choose.Today, Tinder creates 26 million matches a day and has been mimicked and referenced in popular shows, like “Master of None,” and movies like “How to Be Single.” But Tinder isn’t the only awesome dating app out there — plenty of other dating apps making their mark on the space are worth giving a try.
