Online dating is booming, and a new website or app comes out every other week! From apps for people that want relationships to flings, people looking for interracial dating to farmers looking for love, there’s an app or website that will cater for you. With so many different options, it can seem overwhelming, so we’ve put together this list of our favorite websites and apps to help you find the perfect place for you.
Probably one of the best-known dating apps out there, Tinder became hugely popular around five years ago and hasn’t skipped a beat yet. Renowned for its swipe-to-like system that revolutionized the online dating game to this day, you make a profile, add a bio, and get swiping to find a match. It’s mainly known for people looking for something more short-term, but there are many examples of people that have found long-term relationships using the app.
Hinge is focused on people you’re already acquainted with and uses your connections on Facebook to suggest people you may want something more with. This also means you can check out their full profile rather than just look through a few pictures to make a decision.
Interracial Dating Central
Focused on people looking for an interracial relationship, such as white women looking for black men, this website caters to you perfectly. Just add in your own details, and then what you’re looking for, and find someone who fits you perfectly.
This app is marketed as an exclusive club, and to join, you must submit your LinkedIn profile. Once you’ve been approved, you’ll get up to 6 matches per day to review, so you can decide if they are a good fit for you. You must stay active, or else you’ll lose your matching privileges.
Another app that’s for those people looking for more specific, JSwipe allows you to choose from orthodox to ‘just Jewish’ people. The interface is similar to Tinder, but allows you to make sure that the people you’re matching with match your background.
Bumble works similar again to Tinder in its interface but gives the ladies the chance to make the first contact. This means that the gents can’t make the first move, and the girls must message first. In addition, you can go back to the people you’ve swiped no to, and can change three back every three hours.
Coffee Meets Bagel
Coffee Meets Bagel has an interesting name and some exciting features. It uses an algorithm to give you people that have shown an interest in you, and then you get to pick who you reach out to - similar to Bumble.
This is one of the most established and popular dating websites out there. It uses a special algorithm to match you to people with similar personalities and interests, so that you have the best chance of hitting it off.
