Popluar phone dating services
With the hectic schedules of modern life, mobile dating apps help you discover people and opportunities around you without the crowds of the bar or awkward blind dates from friends.
If you're someone who's had trouble finding that potential date the old fashioned way, why not give one of these mobile dating apps a try?
It’s fun scrolling through and checking peoples’ date suggestions.
I also like that the button says “I’m intrigued”, a sign that this app was meant for people who can actually understand that word.
The second I signed up I was bombarded with come-ons in really bad English. But after all the effort and built-up excitement it turns out that the app is basically pointless unless you pay up.
I do slightly appreciate the way you are able to get into contact with one of your matches (you send them 5 questions, they send you 5 back, you get to talking), but not being able to see anyone’s face is too much to ask. By making people think up of date ideas as part of their profile, it’s a great way to see how people think, and what they like.
Also, why wasn’t I ever compatible with any of the cute ones? It’s also kind of a downer being able to compare how many people visited your profile and how many you matched with. The interface is a mess; it’s just a crowded checkerboard of tiny faces. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do when I open the app and their little Shake feature is basically just asking for some sleazebag from the other side of the world permission to send you photos of himself topless. And it’s such a gyp because the interface is actually really nice! For someone who loves talking about herself, I got sick and tired of talking about myself.
And it’s actually not that tedious to fill in your own profile, thanks to the Tinder-like yes-or-no swiping game (e.g. Swipe right for yes, and left for no.”) Unlike Tinder, it’s easier to get a gauge of what kind of person you’re checking out.
Then again, Tinder’s originally just for hookups so I can’t blame it too much for being that, uh, minimal.
Because, you know, I don’t want to come off as desperate...apart from the fact that I’m on OKCupid to begin with.
On the plus side, though, I love how detailed people’s profiles are.

And just like OK Cupid, you basically have no privacy; absolutely anyone can check you out and message you, and vice-versa. I was complaining about OKCupid’s crazy filters but I’d like them back, please. It took all of the wrong parts of social networking and made it into some kind of free-for-all dating app. It takes forever to finish your profile (and when it says you’re done, you’re actually only 40% done and still have a ton of follow-up questions), only to find out that you have to PAY to get any decent action in. I do not have all day to set up my profile because looking for a date isn’t my day job.
