Tinder is simple, quick, fun and free -- and everyone seems to be doing it.If you're single and looking, keep an open mind and check it out. What is Tinder and Why has it become the Focus of Debate? People who have considered online dating desperate find it much easier to download the simple app, link to Facebook and swipe away.But, dismissing this app would be a mistake, and I can give you 50 million reasons in 196 countries worldwide to convince you. Over the past few months, I've used Tinder Plus (premium subscription / worldwide) to "informally research" Tinder users (women and men) across a wide age-range (25-50) all over the world. Here are examples copied from Tinder profiles in the United States: Not looking for a hook-up, but thanks for the thought . Afraid of matching and chatting with a married person? Oh, but wait, it also happens in bars, restaurants, at speed dating events, and through matchmaking services. Trust your instincts and make sure your partner is on the same page.But it's the biggest and baddest on the playground.
Why it’s better than Tinder: Not everyone has a beard and that dramatically decreases the pool of available men who aren’t you, making your chances of finding a match higher.Users put in a specific time for romance and the peeps at How About We search through your matches for those who’ve also opted in for the same date.They call themselves “the Uber for dates,” and speed and discretion is the name of the game with Pure, which is probably named incorrectly.And what's better than a night of unadulterated sex followed by an ice-cold soda—an old “poke-n-coke? For parts of a conversation that you’d like to keep temporary, there’s a feature called “Whisper” that automatically deletes the conversation after 25 seconds and even foils screenshots—If a friend manages to capture the screen, they won’t be able to capture who said what, since nicknames are blocked out. lovers who believe taste and compatibility are married forever, Tastebuds is an app worth trying.” Dating apps have begun to lose their stigma, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t still weary of showing their faces on what can be considered another tier of social media. Users match based on their i Tunes library and can send each other songs to find that person who loves Krautrock as much as you. Are these women hiding their true intentions about hooking-up? In fact, many find them superficial because of how simple they are. Whatever the case, Tinder is popular and has brought online dating to the masses.
