Whether it is for a friendship, for a casual flirt or for falling in love, Millennials love meeting new people to enjoy every part of their lives and now this is easier than ever. We have the chance to find different mates at our fingertips and only the ski or these digital apps are the limit!
However, as everyone connects to dozens of new matches per week, standing out in the crowd and making a good impression to others is becoming a hard task. And for most of us, flirting is not as easy as it seems.
According to a study by the popular app Hinge, a small part of the people who have made a match have started talking on the chat, and since chatting is the only way of communicating in the app it is clear that being liked does not assure us to have a date. So, how can we actually have a date with someone we have liked online?
Some apps have tried to facilitate the interaction between users by giving them different roles according to their gender: women choose first to like someone or are the first to open conversations as it happens in Ok Cupid. However, even when women choose, after having thousands of similar conversations with other mates it is likely that they will just stop talking first.
So how do we get out of the indecision and boredom that causes talking with so many people at once? We believe that the best way to succeed in the online dating world is to spend some time trying different dating apps to find out which one is the best ones for us. We all already know Tinder or Happn, so let us help introduce you other dating apps on this list with some of the best dating apps in the market:
MEET FRIENDS OF FRIENDS AND FLIRT WITH THEM
Hinge is a simple dating app. It is an advanced version of the gossip we usually do on Facebook looking for the friends of our contacts. On Hinge when we create our profile we also log in our social media accounts, so the app can scan our contacts and display us the friends of our friends who have the app installed. It is a great opportunity to talk to that guy or girl so cute that we saw on that birthday party last month or to finally meet that pale that was going to our university.
Hinge is one of the dating apps that gives users the chance to start the conversation talking about the same circle of friends or interests. And this is such a great start when we meet someone new. It has a free version and another paid one and it is available for iOS and for Android.
FIND YOUR CONCERT BUDDY
What music do you listen to? This is probably one of our favorite phrases when we start a conversation with a stranger. However, this is often a bad idea if we find out that we and our online date have very different musical tastes or if we discover that our date has no idea about the groups we are talking about.
To avoid bad vibes, Tastebudd is a dating app that brings people together for their musical tastes, assuring, at least, that the first conversation will be good and smooth. If we also talk about some mythical songs we have almost assured to have a date in person. It’s free and available for iOS.
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
Impatient people will certainly not want to hear about this option, but for those who are tired of swiping hey can try Once, a dating app that, as its name suggests, only sends a match a day to our mail. For this, we must dump into the app a large part of our personality with our tastes and particularities so it can sends us a proper match. It also gives us a single day to reply back to the match or discard it. With Once there are no excuses for busy people to date online as it is the most relaxing app to do it. It is free and available for iOS and Android.
SIGN IN THE SPINNING CLASS
Some of us might think that flirting in the gym is reserved for those ones who wear a six pack. However, simply sharing the love of sweating in the spinning class can connect us to other sport lovers, especially if we have installed in our smartphone the app Sweatt.
This online dating app takes the city’s gyms to our phone and paires us with those ones that share our favorite exercises. Get off the couch immediately and go to the gym; besides improving your health you could find love, flirt or whatever you are looking for. At the moment it is in only available in NYC but it plans to expand throughout the world. It is free and available for iOS.
The lucky ones that are about to have a date can use Wave Application, an app that facilitates the meetings between friends, dates or relatives by sharing their live location on a private map. Besides displaying each other’s location in real time, it has the possibility to set a meeting point on the map, see how to get there and what is the estimated time of arrival. Use it to take your date to your favorite restaurant and to chat privately. It’s free and available for ios and android.
