Need to find a date for a holiday party? Or maybe just someone you can tell your mom about so she’ll stop worrying? It may be time for you to give dating apps another go. I know, I know, they can be fruitless and frustrating, but if you approach them with the right strategy and attitude, you can be really successful. These are the best dating apps right now, and each of them have their own unique purpose. Give them a try, or get a girlfriend to test the waters with you.
Hinge is probably one of the most popular apps right now. It lets you add three key pieces of information about yourself on your profile, meaning you have a little more information to go off of. For those of you that appreciate humor and sarcasm, this one is for you. Profiles tend to be witty and silly, so if that’s your vibe, dive in.
2. Coffee Meets Bagel
For those who are looking for something real, this app is for you. With longer profile pieces and carefully curated matches, you’re more likely to find someone who fits with what you’re looking for. Each day, you will get a batch of “bagels,” and if you match, you have three days to get the conversation going and exchange information.
If you’re best friend knows you better than anyone, and you want a break from the dating grind, this one’s for you. Let your BFF do the searching for you, and they’ll get the benefit of a little friendly competition with the app’s leaderboard.
First dates can be tough, but bringing a friend along can make things much easier. Set up a double date with your BFF and you both could end up walking away with a new boo!
