Nowadays, few people doubt that mobile dating apps really help find a soulmate. Research has shown that the quality of relationships that start online is not fundamentally different from those that began in person.
Today, everyone has a friend who met their Russian brides online thanks to dating services. However, choosing a suitable internet resource can be as difficult and deceiving as choosing a real partner. We have analyzed several of the most popular platforms to help you understand their features.
Seemingly “business”, relative to the other dating platforms, the JustLunch application allows you to find potentially useful acquaintances in a particular area within a few minutes and try to transfer them from the virtual world into reality. To do this, you will need to create a meeting (like in a social network) and describe its purpose, and then invite certain people to become its participants. The creators of JustLunch warn: to avoid surprises like those when you are waiting for the head of the corporation, and the cleaner comes, carefully look at the places of work that are publicly available here.
It’s impossible to say for sure what is more in Match — a classic application or a social network. Users agree that it is still the second, and this is not unreasonable. Match has a convenient keyword search function, allows you to comment on posts and tag your favorites, take pictures right inside the app, and even read the news feed. The setting of “favorite contacts” adds the ability to always keep in sight the people with whom you communicate most often, and notifications of viewed messages become in this case a pleasant bonus. That being said, keep in mind that Match is still a dating app, albeit incredibly similar to Facebook.
Everything is again tied to the social network Facebook and your friends, who know better who is right for you, as the creators of Hitch believe. This way, in the application, users can “bring” their virtual friends together, as well as discuss the prospects of this acquaintance in an anonymous chat. You can choose the best option from those suggested by your friends (of course, with the indication of age), and send a potential partner a short message. History is silent about what will happen next.
The peculiarity of Down among other dating apps is that it invites you to look for partners for dating and friendly sex among your Facebook friends. All you need to do is mark those you like in the list (there is also access to “friends of friends”). If the person you tagged is using the app and, importantly, also tagged you, you can take action. Despite the relative publicity, only those who have expressed sympathy for you will be able to find out that you are using such an application. Let’s not forget the useful Daily Picks feature, which offers three choices every day.
5. WouldLove 2
WouldLove 2 has an intuitively clear interface and is very similar in concept to Down. If two people on Facebook like each other, WouldLove 2 will definitely notify them of this and offer to go out on a date. The sexual context, unlike the same Down, cannot be found here, but no one forbids you to create it yourself. Active users warn that on the first launch, the application takes an extremely long time to load and freezes, but already on the second launch, this problem will most likely disappear.
It helps to get acquainted with open-minded, curious, and experimental couples and singles near you. The only thing that you need for registration is to log in with your Facebook account, and the app DOES NOT connect you with friends and people with whom you have many mutual friends. The rest of the mechanics are like in Tinder.
Unlike Tinder, OkCupid is not affiliated with Facebook, which means that no one can find out (even if they really want to) where you work and who you are friends with. It is suggested to search for a partner using a complicated questionnaire, which includes strange and sometimes even absurd questions, which obviously allow determining your position in life. Or, which is much simpler, by geolocation. It has a great Quickmatch feature that brings up a massive gallery of pictures with age and location underneath. The principle is the same as in Tinder: you scroll to the left – nothing happens, to the right — a person gets a well-deserved “like”.
