Newly updated dating sites
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.
Instead, it encourages them to score the date with – not wits or smarts – but gifts. Post an update like “Who wants to go surfing this afternoon?
Those who mutually rate each other at a four or higher will get introduced via email.
“Black Status” users are sent 100 matches per day, which means they have a large number of Facebook friends who also use Hinge.
The true intentions (“trints”), which can range from “let’s talk” to “coffee” to “romance” to “hookup,” aren’t revealed unless there is a successful match.But singles can leave a hint if they’re feeling brave. Grouper sets you up with a match, then lets both parties bring along two friends.Down can be used for dating as well, but let’s be honest: This app still lives up to its former name. Trint Me allows shy users to initiate the next step behind the veil of their smartphones.
Using Facebook, Hinge sends you a selection of friends-of-friends every day at noon.A simple profile photo followed by age, job and education information are all users have to go off of when they rate the potential connection on a scale of one to five.
