Matchmaking services internet dating cupid
If you want to play the odds when it comes to online dating, you need to be swiping where everyone's swiping.
On the upside, the profiles are brief, which allows you to make decisions quickly.
You'll need to wade through a sea of profiles, which makes it easy to pass over people you might have given a chance under different circumstances. I have friends who've met spouses through Ok Cupid. In fact, I've been on Ok Cupid, on and off, for roughly the last 11 years.
Profiles are much more in-depth than most dating sites, and if you answer a seemingly endless series of questions, they will spit out a reasonable Match/Enemy percentage ratio on profiles to help you gauge compatibility.
However the rate of overly confident males tends to be higher than I've seen on other apps.
Bumble also has a BFF feature, but that's really not the focus of a dating app gallery, so I'll save it for another time.
Also because women must message first, Bumble tends to weed out the slightly more insecure males.
Hinge focuses on common connections that you and a potential partner share on Facebook.
Which is great if you trust the judgment of your friends and family.
Coffee Meets Bagel hopes to offer users better-quality matches by sending curated matches, or "bagels," each day at noon.
They suggest ice-breakers for first messages, and the profiles are more in-depth than Tinder.
