Dating apps kind of suck — just ask anyone between the ages of 21 and 35.Despite this, they’ve become the normal way to meet people and ask them out. Because Tinder is one of the most famous dating apps out there, and the obvious first choice in our list of the best dating apps.To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.First off, Tinder the app requires you to have a Facebook account in order to enable it, and you have to be over 18.Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).The fact that the chat room expires after a week puts some pressure on you to exchange phone numbers or meet up in real life or to just quietly fade away without any fuss.
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
You can also choose to make your answers public and note how important they are to you.
All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.
Once you’ve set up your profile and input your preferences, it will send you one “bagel” a day, which is essentially the profile of a potential match.
You then have 24 hours to decide whether you want to “like” or “pass” on your bagel.
You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.
