Dating for you
You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.If something goes wrong, it’s also easy to report or block accounts — though there are a limited number of blocks for free users, which is a serious turn-off. Free users only get to see 100 profiles in their area and are limited in other parts of the app too.If you want to lift those limits, then there are two subscriptions you can take out.Sign-up is easy — you can either choose to enter your details in the old-fashioned way by filling in the form, or you can quickly sign-up with your Facebook account.Once you’re signed up, you’ll want to set a profile picture, a display name, and make it clear whether you’re looking for love, a hookup, or just friends.
The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account, but you do have to be older than 18.The first, Grindr XTRA, allows you to see up to 600 profiles in your area, view only people who are online now, strips out ads, and other upgrades for a month.If you want the best possible experience, then there’s Grindr Unlimited, which has no limit on the number of people you can see, lets you see who’s viewed your profile, and browse in Incognito mode.The free option comes with limited swipes, and you’ll have to pay per month for unlimited swipes.The photos are large, the app is — comparatively speaking — svelte, and setting up your profile is pretty painless. Also, no one can message you unless you have also expressed an interest in them, which means you get no unsolicited messages.
