It pretty much sucks when Valentine's Day is fast approaching and you don't have a date. But don't give up just yet. In this day and age, there is an app for everything, and we got some apps listed below that might help you hook up with somebody this weekend.
Let us start with something that you probably already have heard about -- Tinder. If you have no idea what it is, it is basically just an app that lets you browse through photos of people. If you find someone attractive or interesting, you just swipe right. If they are not your type, you just swipe left. If someone you swiped right also finds you interesting, you will be able to send each other messages directly.
Tinder's mechanics for hooking up is rather simple, but it could also be fun. And even if you fail to hook up with somebody, at least you get to have some bit of mindless fun.
The Tinder app is available for both Android and iOS users, so the pool of potential dates is deep. And although you will be required to log in via your Facebook account, nothing will be posted on your timeline.
If you are okay with the concept of online dating, then you can try dating apps like OkCupid, Hinge, or Plenty of Fish. Not only are they easy to use, you can also download them for free.
OkCupid and Plenty of Fish function much like your usual dating website. You create an online profile that others can view, and even take several personality tests, that is if you believe in that sort of thing.
Both the OkCupid and Plenty of Fish apps are available for Android and iOS users. These dating services can also be accessed via the Internet.
As for Hinge -- well, you can say that it is more fitting for people who do not want to be overloaded with too much or too random information. What this app does is feed you with a limited list of potential dates, specifically from your Facebook circle of friends, or friends of friends. Compared to Tinder, Hinge does away with showing you random faces. Instead, it recommends possible matches based on your interests and web browsing activity. Once you find somebody you are interested in, Hinge morphs into Tinder, wherein you can only directly message someone who also finds you interesting.
If you want a dating system that is even more controlled, you should check out Coffee Meets Bagel. It works the same way as Hinge but you only get one possible date match once every 24 hours. This means that to get hooked up, you and your possible match will need to “like” each other within a one-day timeframe, or the deal is off. Once you both “like” each other, you will get to send each other private messages.
