This might be helpful if you're looking to date your immediate neighbors (or Uber drivers), but I don't see the attraction when competitors like Tinder already show the distance between you and other users.
Frankly, if I saw an attractive guy in a coffee shop, I'd just approach him rather than check to see if he's on Happn.
On the upside, the profiles are brief, which helps you to make decisions quickly.
The downside is that short profiles make it harder to figure out what a lot of people are looking for.
Bumble also has a BFF feature to help you meet new people, but that's really not the focus of a dating app gallery, so I'll save it for another time.
Whether you're looking for a hookup, friendship or an LTR (long-term relationship), Tinder has you covered.
It's basically the first stop for those entering the dating world.
For people who like a little extra hand-holding, CMB isn't the worst option.
Hinge finally won me over, becoming my favorite dating app in 2019.
Originally the app focused on common connections and mutual friends that you and a potential partner shared on Facebook, which was a gimmick I was never sold on. Hinge has designed the app to make user profiles more engaging (and helpful) than on apps like Tinder.
You have the option of displaying a lot of useful information that could be deal breakers: your political leanings, your religion, your alcohol consumption frequency or even your interest level in having children someday.
And the prompts provided by Hinge do help create more engaging profiles.
