The Best iPhone Apps For Online Dating You Should Know

Dating is hard dating through an app is even harder. Especially during an age of online flings and one night tinder dates. Surprisingly, there are apps out there for your iPhone that are actually made for forming real relationships through online dating so that you don’t have to go through the awkward, “What do we want out of this” talk.


Bumble is very similar to the infamous Tinder in terms of the swiping left to right. However, this app lets you swipe based off of more than just a few well angled selfies. Bumble allows you to include your interests and goals out of the app on your profile. They also have quirky preprogrammed questions to answer only our profile.

This app is also super beneficial for women. Women must respond to matches first within the first 24 hours and then the man in the following 24 hours.

OK Cupid

This dating app is one of the veterans. Ok Cupid before becoming an app was a dating platform through the internet for over 10 years. The app works like Bumble and tinder, with the tradition swiping, but your profile is built from more in depth questions that better help you understand someone before swiping right.

Coffee Meets Bagel

This dating app is much more user friendly than others and may be a better option if you’re new to the online dating world. This app comes with step by step instructions on how to set up your profile and begin matching. It also provides pre programmed ice breaker questions in case you don’t know how to approach a match. There profiles are also pretty in depth when it comes to dating app standards.


This is an up and coming dating app that has been hidden behind the Tinders and Bumbles. This app although online, provides a more organic communication. Your matches are based on proximity to each other. This enables setting up a first date in person much more effective and you’ll be able to determine right away if you want that relationship to continue.
