Whether it’s matching you on your favourite interests or finding someone who you share mutual friends with. Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do differently and what sets them apart.
Match.com is Old Internet – it launched in 1995! Before Google! Before you even had a computer! – so we understand any scepticism you might have. But Match.com has survived this long for a reason. It’s moved with the times from an algorithmic standpoint but remains extremely stripped-back and basic.\
2. Facebook Dating
It’s safe to say that Facebook Dating has arrived about a decade too late. People are probably far less keen to involved Zuckerberg and co in their love lives following the Cambridge Analytica privacy fall-out of 2018, and the site’s popularity amongst young people is dropping off.
The brashness. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn’t be an issue – your friends are bound to find out. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks. This app allows you to eliminate the middleman. If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide open.
With more than 400 million members, Badoo is one of the world’s most popular dating apps and part of the same umbrella company as Bumble. On it users upload a picture of a celebrity or famous figure they fancy and the app serves up members who look similar.
5. Guardian Soulmates
As one of the longest standing dating sites on the internet, The Guardian’s Soulmates service doesn’t need to prove its credentials. Perhaps that’s why it’s one of the only apps that requires a paid subscription to fully utilise (and at £35/month, it doesn’t come cheap.)
6. Coffee Meets Bagel
Their mantra and methodology is explained thus: “Each day at noon, guys will receive up to 21 quality matches – known as ‘Bagels’. They are given the option to either LIKE or PASS. Then, Coffee Meets Bagel will curate the best potential matches for women among the men who expressed interest.”
Gives you the chance to tell your friends (rather than strangers) that you want to sleep with them. he more you think about it, the less sense Down makes. Isn’t the whole point of internet dating that you can meet someone new? This hook-up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing ‘I Like You’ notes in class.
