Dating because your bored
I’ve had a few fun dates through it, you just have to put the time in to weed through the rubbish.”Paul said: “All I ever hear from men is that women never reply, and all I ever hear from women is that they get too many messages.”That said, we know personally of one real world couple that are now married having met through Plenty of Fish, so love can be found here!
is another older dating website that’s evolved over the years to become one of the most popular apps.
Louise told us: “The men are better, looks and personality.” Paul agreed: “It’s Tinder, but better.” Calling itself “the relationship app”, Hinge is aimed at those who are tired of Tinder, or just have really sore thumbs from all the swiping.
You’re prompted to ask a series of questions, but you can choose which you answer. Sarah said: “Hinge definitely sounds good in theory. I’m trying to stay patient and positive, but I think the instant buzz of Tinder might have ruined me.”Plenty of Fish is another app that allows you to create a profile, answer questions or just upload your favorite selfies.
It’s ideal if you’re looking for something not so serious, but that’s not to say you won’t find a more long-term partner. Louise said: “I’m sick of it, but most people are on it.
By answering questions and filling out your profile, the app’s algorithm will suggest people who share your interests in the hope you’ll build more genuine connections, which you can easily see from a ‘compatibility’ score next to other users.
You can also link up your Instagram account if you think it gives potential dates a better idea of what you’re all about. Once you’ve signed up, you select a time window when you’re free and then choose what you’d like to do, like ‘coffee’ or ‘drink’ or ‘entertainment’.
Built from an idea by Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke (stick with us...) it's a respectful community with a higher quality user than some of the sleazier apps. The idea is it’ll cut out time wasting and lead to a greater chance of a connection.
Letting you choose between "Mr Right" and "Mr Right Now" it's fun and playful if you're in the mood for some quick company, while offering a bit more depth for those looking for a bit more. The app also has a recently launched premium feature, which serves up more information about your matches, like how likely they are to reply to you.
