Who it's good for: If it didn't work to some extent, Tinder's user base would have gone downhill a long time ago. You're pretty much getting a notification for every time a hottie is within walking distance, and who would say no to that? Hinge is the place for people who want a real relationship but don't want to commit to a full-fledged dating site with extensive questionnaires. While Hinge first started by showing you Facebook friends of friends, their algorithm has been getting smarter and smarter, and is now able to surpass friends of friends as a predictor of compatibility. If you've tried any type of online dating or dating app before, you know that the pool of potential partners can be frightening.
Or maybe you want to test the waters of online dating without investing a lot.
More singles who are more your style.
Though OkCupid's advertisements may have "DTF" plastered all over them, the site's intentions and matchmaking process are no joke. However, if you're good at regularly checking your apps and are looking for someone with the same hardworking values, sign up now. Oh yeah, and its 90 million registered users beats out almost every other dating site's stats — so you're guaranteed to never get bored. Everyone shits on the shallow matching, but that fast-paced action is exactly what many young people want. Overall, their hearts are in the right place, and I commend them for trying to promote the importance of safe sex. Whether you love it or think it's trash, it's going to be one of the best for the foreseeable future, and those are just facts.
