While Hinge first started by showing you Facebook friends of friends, their algorithm has been getting smarter and smarter, and is now able to surpass friends of friends as a predictor of compatibility. This means you won't be matched with someone all wrong for you simply because you know the same person. Rather, Hinge will help you get to know the other person more deeply than any new app has attempted, by revealing answers to juicy personality questions and detailed information like future plans, religion, and vices. Seems like a pretty good recipe for a strong connection past looks, right? According to Hinge, 75% of their first dates lead to second dates, and we totally believe it.
The app does an incredibly good job at collecting feedback from singles, using it  to help increase your rate of success. Members are given a report card-style dashboard that shows them why users liked or passed on their profile, down to the specific reason, such as low-quality profile pictures, as well as offering ways to improve their likelihood of getting “liked.” For any online dater, this dashboard alone is a good (and free) tool to gauge how their profile is performing compared to others.
Einer der größten Fauxpas ist das intime Bild unbedacht an den falschen Adressaten zu schicken. Anstatt im Chat-Fenster des Freundes oder der Freundin landet das pikante Foto bei einem entfernten Bekannten oder in einer Gruppe. Schlimmer hätte es nicht kommen können. Selbst die Mama oder ein enger Freund hätten das Foto peinlich berührt wieder gelöscht. Ist es jedoch zu spät und das Bild gelangte einmal ungewollt vor fremde Augen, besteht die Gefahr, dass es einen viralen Charakter entwickelt und schnell die Runde in verschiedenen sozialen Netzwerken macht.
Zoosk is a leader in the dating app space, as they were one of the first ones on the scene. Their integration with Facebook and Google+ makes for quick and easy signup because you won’t have to input your information and pictures — they’ll do it for you. Then you’ll be able to search for matches, introduce yourself as well as have the app do the introductions, and chat all for free.
The idea of matching people who have already crossed paths hasn't really been seen before, and Happn knew damn well that young people would jump on anything fast paced and spontaneous. You're pretty much getting a notification for every time a hottie is within walking distance, and who would say no to that? On a more serious note, it's honestly exciting to wake up in the morning thinking you might just have a love at first sight moment in the Starbucks line. (Yes, technically that's always possible, but not everyone is keen on introducing themselves to attractive strangers in person. Happn just wants to decrease your number of missed opportunities.)

Who it's good for: This is the place for queer, bisexual, trans, and lesbian women to go when they're so over men pretending to be women online or if they're tired of being asked for a threesome by straight couples. The fact that it's made by queer women for queer women was a much needed addition to the online dating world, and knowing that it's a safe space is really nice. This is due to the fact that HER requires a Facebook account to register, which does a pretty good job at solving one of the main issues that comes along with online dating as a lesbian: Desperate men posing as women, attempting to do...well, as much as they can, and being all around creepy and invasive.Another refreshing aspect is that HER goes way past being a hookup app — that is, without adding pressure to find a romantic partner. While it can be used to couple up and find local matches that you never knew existed, you can also get involved in local LGBTQ events, read LGBTQ news, and make friends through its social-media like feed.Mashable's Heather Dockray pays homage to it in her piece on the best queer dating apps, choosing it as the best app for queer women: 


Downsides: You mean, other than the obvious fact that you'll probably get carpal tunnel from having to swipe through so many profiles? Well, there is no real matchmaking process, so Tinder will suggest literally every single person in the age range and distance radius that you set. (And if you specifically opted to only see matches of the same gender, Tinder will still throw the opposite gender in there, because they apparently don't believe that you can actually just be gay.)
That being said,  services you pay for usually provide some extra user value to justify the price tag. There’s usually more advanced matching algorithms along with other bells and whistles, and because you must pay to use them, they tend to attract people who take online dating a little more seriously. Of course, many free sites have matching systems that work just as well as (if not better, in some cases) their paid competitors, and each dating website or app tends to have its own unique aspect that makes it stand out.

Another reason for using a dating site is to get away from traditional dating methods. Going to the local bar, blind dates, going to a dance or country club are some of the old ways of doing things. With the internet age among us we don't have to confine ourselves to our neighborhood and we can do our searching behind the safety of our screens. The internet allows for the unfiltered ice breaking opportunity to meet someone. The best part is that it's a Free dating site, so you have nothing to lose!
Die französische Dating-App läuft über die GPS-Technologie. Raffiniert erkennt es Benutzer der Flirt-App, deren Wege sich kreuzen. Sollte das passieren, erscheint ein Foto mit kurzen Profil-Daten. Auf einer kleinen Karte kann man sehen, wo sich die Wege gekreuzt haben. Wenn einem die angezeigte Person gefällt, klickt man auf ein kleines Herz – „It`s a crush“. Auch hier kann das Chatten per App beginnen.
Online dating requires commitment and patience while scrolling through lots of profiles to see who matches the criteria you’re looking for. Be assertive if you find someone interesting but also be kind to others. If someone sends you a message online, they’ve taken the time to read about you and are interested in meeting you in person. If you’re not interested, it’s always a nice gesture to send a reply of ‘thanks, but no thanks.’ You’ll be glad you did. Common courtesy goes a long way. This is something that can get lost in our fast-paced, modern technology and superficial, and fleeting moments of human contact.

Features for introverts: Since AFF has millions upon millions of users from around the world, there’s always a large group of people constantly using it 24 hours a day. No matter your kinks or sexual orientation and no matter the time of day or night, there’s someone on the dating site waiting for you to share your preferences, sexual desires, and maybe hook-up with you too. It’s like if New York City and Las Vegas had a baby. Adult Friend Finder is the dating site that never sleeps and whatever happens on the site, stays on the site. 
The bottom line: If a site's janky aesthetics don't bother you, POF offers the largest variety of potential mates of all the apps on this list. Regardless of whether you're super picky with your type or have no idea what you want, there's pretty much no way you won't find a few people (out of 90 million) who you find interesting. If you're only looking to hook up, definitely stay away from POF — but if you're looking to settle down, POF's matchmaking has got your back.
I have been quite an active user on Oasis for the past few years. Men come and go. Until one day a guy with nickname Jiwa Muda liked me. We were the same faith so I said to myself, what the heck and liked him back. We started chatting but never had a proper conversation, both logged in at different times. One day he sent me a message and gave me his mobile number. Since then we have been communicating via WhatsApp. We fell in love. He decided to come to Malaysia and he did. He flew from Yogjakarta and reached Malaysia on March 1st. On March 4th, we got married! I found my love and so did he! Thanks, Oasis!
Who it's good for: This is the place where the older crowd can avoid the non-serious people and find other singles their age. Chemistry is the name of the game here, and the multiple questionnaires are no joke. This isn't a quick five-second set up like other apps, but that's only because Plenty of Fish truly wants you to dig deep so that they can give you the best quality matches. Not only does POF attempt to match you with people who you'll statistically get along with (based on how you've both answered questions), but it also wants to match you with people who are looking for the same thing as you. 
Chen, for example, still uses dating apps, but does so begrudgingly. She and her girlfriends regularly send each other outrageous texts they receive from men and laugh about them. Others, such as Anna Heissler, a 26-year-old executive assistant also living in Toronto, describe the apps as a “necessary evil.” And others still are looking to slower forms of finding a mate online or throwing in the towel entirely, preferring instead to revert back to the old-fashioned ways of meeting someone: introductions from family and friends, chance meetings at a gym, or at singles events.
