If it doesn’t work out, that’s okay, there will be another bagel tomorrow, and hopefully the day after that too, until you’re so sick of looking at bagels who don’t want to hang out with you that you swear off breakfast for a week.
I am one app in, and no messages, but that’s alright.
Anyway, here’s the list, hopefully your luck will be better than mine. I was used to the endless stream of faces provided by Tinder, so I want to start somewhere that emphasizes quality over quantity.
Coffee Meets Bagel provides you with only one curated match, or bagel, every day at noon.
I’ve had an Ok Cupid account for a few months now, and although the app claims there are a number (not a particularly big number either) of potential matches for me, none of them are actively looking for me, or even looking for me at all. Available on i OS, Android, and Web My words are a bit sharper than my looks, so the idea behind Loveflutter really appeals to me.
Rather than swiping left or right based entirely on a few pictures, Loveflutter asks you to provide a quirky fact about yourself, and then obscures your picture behind it.
It only took me two days to come up with my interesting fact, which is “One time I got my hand stuck in a jar of organic peanut butter.” Pretty great, right?
If you both like each other, you’ll receive a text from a disposable cell number where you can text each other for up to a week without sharing your real phone number.
If he/she likes you too, you can view their full profile, send a message, and plan a meetup.
At least that’s how I assume it works, I wouldn’t really know.
Available on i OS Ok Cupid is definitely more of a dating site than a Tinder alternative, but it’s made strides lately to be everything for everyone, and it shows.
The new Quickmatch system operates almost exactly like Tinder, giving you the opportunity to swipe left or right, while also providing a match percentage based on questions answered by both of you and details of your profiles.
