The lack of endless matches is both a positive and a negative — it's not as overwhelming as Tinder, but there's also not the possibility for limitless hours of swiping entertainment.
Check out my top 5 dating app picks and feel free to text Tinder to say you're just not feeling it anymore.
If you get overwhelmed and have to go crawling back to Tinder, don't worry — it will always be there for you.
Even more good news: The app now calls out users who are already in relationships, putting their Facebook relationship status on the app so no one is deceived. I don't think I need to explain it since it seems to be just as popular with Millennials as Tinder, but it is worth including since it has such a large network of people to choose from.
If you're tired of simply swiping and want to procrastinate for hours by penning the world's wittiest dating profile and answering hundreds of match questions, Ok Cupid is perfect for you.
By turning on your location services, the app shows you people you've "crossed paths with," within one city-block.
Then, like Tinder, you can "like" someone which opens up the option to chat.
If the lady doesn't start a convo with a match within 24 hours, the chat disappears forever, providing an incentive to actually make connections with people rather than just playing the "who'll make the first move" waiting game.
While it's true (and great) that many women may already feel empowered enough to send the first message, Bumble is a fun Tinder alternative for girls who are on the shy side.
It has a Tinder-like feature called "Quickmatch" where you can swipe through people nearby — if you both "liked" each other, it lets you know (although you can chat with them either way, unlike on Tinder).
