Internet dating for young adults
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.
But if you're someone who procrastinates, Bumble may not be for you.
Also because women must message first, Bumble tends to weed out the slightly more insecure males.
Whether you're looking for a hookup or an LTR (long-term relationship), Tinder has you covered.
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.
Here's an overview of the best dating sites on the market. Bumble requires women to message first and if the guy doesn't message back within 24 hours, he loses the potential match.
My recommendations for the best dating sites are based primarily on my own experiences with online dating sites as a woman, with some word-of-mouth impressions from friends thrown in for good measure. Because that's the one thing my love life was really missing... The timer is designed to encourage contact, and some people really do appreciate that feature.
Frankly, if I saw a cute guy in a coffee shop, I'd just approach him rather than check to see if he's on Happn.
The app seems designed for people who don't want to use online dating but who also don't want to approach people in real life. The League is an "elite dating app" that requires you to apply -- and supply your job title, college and Linked In profile.
