If you want to know more about someone, you can always just ask the friend you have in common, which is a human touch that’s absent from most apps. Moreover, people can message you only if you’ve matched, so there are no unsolicited “greetings”. You can see what sort of relationship people are looking for, and while that doesn’t sound that revolutionary, it reflects the fact that Hinge carries more of a dating expectation than a just-hooking-up expectation à la Tinder. Furthermore, because of the friends-of-friends connection, you’re less likely to run across inappropriate photos. That’s a plus in our book.
However, if you’re a woman and you really hate being the first person to initiate a conversation, then Bumble definitely isn’t for you. Profiles are also very short, consisting of a concise blurb and six photos or fewer. This can make it hard to gauge whether or not you’re interested, even at the most superficial level, in someone. Furthermore, because Bumble places the onus on the woman to initiate the conversation, we’ve found that it can attract a more passive crowd than other dating apps.
If you’re mentally winking when you say “flirting app,” then we catch your drift. Adult Friend Finder is the app you want to download, whether you’re an iOS or Android user. This sex app has more than 77 million members to flirt with, and they’re totally open to whatever your interests might be (one-night stands, threesomes, swinging, or cheating). Adult Friend Finder is free to download, not to mention add your information and photos, search for matches, and receive daily recommendations via email.
Ganz so dramatisch ist es glücklicherweise noch nicht. Dennoch geben rund 72 Prozent der Nutzer an, dass sich ihr Dating-Verhalten durch Dating-Apps stark verändert habe. 21 Prozent der Smartphone-Besitzer lernen über Mobile-Dating-Apps mehr Menschen kennen. Besonders kurios ist, dass jeder Fünfte sogar während der Arbeitszeit auf mobilen Dating-Seiten aktiv ist. Fakt ist aber auch, dass 49 Prozent der mobilen Dating-App-User das mobile Dating oberflächlicher finden als das Flirten per Computer.
