Looking for serious or casual relationships? These 5 apps are a ‘must-try’

With the Valentine’s Day is on our heads all the single folks are must remember that there is still time left to find love (or even something casual) before the holiday. With that in mind, here are the best dating apps to try out. This is the best time to lookout for someone special as all the singles might be looking for a partner on these apps.

1. Bumble
Bumble is basically Tinder for women… and on a timer. In this app it is mandatory for women to text first and if the guy whom she texts doesn’t reply within 24 hours, he loses the potential match. Because that’s the one thing my love life was really missing… arbitrary time limits. The timer feature is appreciated by many as it is designed to encourage contact. But if you’re someone who procrastinates, Bumble may not be for you.


2. Inner Circle If you’re a tad tired of swiping to no avail, then Inner Circle’s super selective process – that allows you to screen fuller profiles that showcase hobbies, favourite venues and past holidays – might just be thing to get you out of the dating app funky. Dating in 2021 is a drastically different experience for anyone single and looking, so Inner Circle have a handy ‘Refund My Sh*t Date’ option for any dud dates. It’s the ultimate cure for anyone feeling exhausted by pandemic dating. It’s free to join, but to get the best full experience you can switch to the full membership option – the price point is around the same as going dutch on a blind dinner date


3. Hinge
It was a gimmick as originally the app focused on common connections and mutual friends that you and a potential partner shared on Facebook. But from then onwards they have pivoted away from this model. Hinge has designed the app to make user profiles more engaging (and helpful) than other apps.


4. Tinder
This is one of the most renowned dating website not only in India but over the world. Whether you’re looking for a hookup or an LTR (long-term relationship), Tinder has you covered. It’s basically the first stop for those entering the dating world and you can start swiping if you feel yourself eligible for online dating as there are millions of people swiping.


5. OkCupid
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 which is one of the best features and is not possible in many of the other dating platforms.
