In this day and age, it is often easier to find your significant other by using several hookup apps. In the past, people would go out and get to know people personally, which sometimes took a few months. In the modern era, users of these dating apps can do away with this long period of time by just posting the best pictures of themselves and hoping to get a match. Some more good news is that there are plenty of different hookup apps to try, not just the couple you commonly hear about. Below are the best hookup apps that you should definitely utilize if you’re hoping to find a SO.
Tinder is probably the best known of all the hookup apps. It’s also pretty easy to use. All you have to do is post a picture of yourself and a little biography of your personality (although no one ever really looks at this). Once you’ve got your profile all set up, it’s time for you to start looking at potential matches. The folks in charge of the app made this process very simple: swipe left if you don’t like the way someone looks, and right if you do. The only real problem here is if you accidentally swipe a person in the wrong direction.
Unlike Tinder, OkCupid puts more emphasis on your biography. You can go more in-depth to really show people your personality. Hookup apps like this one will probably be more to your liking if you’re looking for a long term relationship. In addition to the longer paragraph about yourself, this app also has users answer many different types of questions so that it can find the best match possible for you. You’ll find yourself answering questions such as “What’s your favorite color” and “Is this dress black and blue, or white and gold?”
Coffee Meets Bagel
You’re a busy person who doesn’t have time to meet people in the real world, so you naturally turned to hookup apps thinking that the process would be much quicker. While you found that it is faster, you still don’t like how you have to swipe through so many people that you aren’t interested in. While browsing the internet one day, you hear about an app that will do pretty much all the work for you. This includes giving you matches every day that the app thinks are best for you. Now, you can look at one or two people everyday that a computer provides for your perusal.
Not satisfied with using regular hookup apps, you want to find something that’s even more out of the ordinary. It’d be preferable if it was still a dating app, though. Luckily, Bumble offers you the change that you’ve been seeking. In this app, the women are in full control. Going against traditional roles, the women have the power to approach men first. To expedite this process, the men only have 24 hours to respond before the woman is lost to them forever. This system is actually genius, since it’ll test how responsive men are to the women they are dating. If they don’t get back to you now, when they should be trying their hardest to win your affection, then they definitely won’t if you decide to get married.
You’re reluctant to start using hookup apps to date since you feel like they’re only for desperate people but, at the urging of your friends, you start shopping for a suitable app. You quickly find one that you think will work called Hinge. Unlike other hookup apps that seem to put an emphasis on looks more than anything else, Hinge actually gives you important information about the people you’re looking at. Are they religious? Political? Do they want kids? These questions, along with others, are the primary focus on this app.
A veteran of hookup apps, you’ve learned after many years that it’s better to start dating someone that lives nearby, since your long-term relationships never seem to work out. You’re currently using Happn, which only shows people in your area. Your plan is to find someone on the app, get a conversation going with them, and finally ask them out to dinner. What could only be done after a month or more of hard socializing can now be accomplished in less than a day. However, there don’t seem to be many people who actually use the app since they’re all on the more well known ones. True, you find people every once in a while but, more often than not, you’re glancing at the same people all the time.
Plenty of Fish
Yes, the app may be full of bots and scams which try to take your identity, but that’s the risk you have to take to find true love. If you think about it, the inclusion of these scams truly simulate how not all fish in the sea are nice. If you can avoid the scammers, though, you’ll find the people are pretty friendly…probably. Like Happn, Plenty of Fish gives you the choice of looking for people in your own neck of the woods unless, of course, you don’t live in the woods. Seriously, though, odds are that the majority of interactions you have on this site will be real. Will they work out for you? Probably not, but at least they won’t try to take your money. Only your time.
You don’t like how with other hookup apps they seem to just let anyone go in. Because of this, you’ve interacted with a lot of fake accounts that get you excited, only to eventually let you down. With The League, every user goes through a rigorous application process that tests not only your mental capabilities, but your physical ones as well. If you’re not up to their standards, you’re not getting in. Can you do 20 push-ups nonstop? If so, you should be fit enough to enter the club. There’s even a rumor floating around that the app is offering elite memberships to users who can run a triathlon in less than 30 minutes!
