Pure and genuine online dating sites
Discovery settings allow other users to find you if desired and set a few preferences regarding who you see. You can also choose to swipe right (to like them), left (to pass), or up if you want to use one of your precious “super likes” to show them you really like them.
If you and another person have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message.
It’s easy to message people — just tap the messaging icon on their profile — and there are large, high-quality pictures too, so you have a good idea of who you’re meeting up with.
You can even location share for really easy meet-ups.
After creating a username, you’ll start filling out a very long profile, to which you can link to your Instagram account.
You can answer questions, giving both your answer and what you’d like your potential match’s answer to be — this creates a percentile score for users that reflects compatibility.
You can also link Tinder to your Instagram account, and include info about your employer and/or school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if you’re logged in through your Facebook account).
The free option comes with limited swipes, and you’ll have to pay per month for unlimited swipes.
The photos are large, the app is — comparatively speaking — svelte, and setting up your profile is pretty painless. Also, no one can message you unless you have also expressed an interest in them, which means you get no unsolicited messages.
The first, Grindr XTRA, allows you to see up to 600 profiles in your area, view only people who are online now, strips out ads, and other upgrades for a month.
If you want the best possible experience, then there’s Grindr Unlimited, which has no limit on the number of people you can see, lets you see who’s viewed your profile, and browse in Incognito mode.
