Three new dating apps to try right now
We have long passed peak Tinder. These days, almost every single person is on it, whether they are looking or not. Swiping through potential matches is a fun pastime and an ego boost. It rarely results in meeting in person anymore.
Jumping on a relatively new dating app will mean you are matching with people who are actively looking for likeminded others. Women who download the latest dating app are being proactive about finding someone. They also have not been exhausted by finding countless poor matches on the app.
Here are three unique dating apps to give your love life a boost.
Dating app Once gives you just one match a day. In some ways it is the antithesis of Tinder. Rather than being presented with so much variety that you do not put effort in to each match, you are given only one chance a day to find your fling. Your love interest is chosen especially for you by the Once staff matchmakers. Likewise, you are the only person shown to your match that day. You each have 24 hours to contact them, before they disappear and your new match arrives.
The real beauty of Once is that you have no competition. Each woman who matches with you will be looking at your profile- and deciding whether or not she likes you- based on your own merits, rather than in comparison to other men on the app. If she doesn’t like you at first glance, she has 24 hours to reconsider- unlike on Tinder, it is not a split-second decision.
Use this app to find women who are actively looking for a boyfriend. Keep in mind that women who are just looking to have some fun will be choosing an app more appropriate to their wants.
Once is free to download, but you have to pay if you want to get extra matches each day. It has been around for just over a year- long enough to accrue a decent user base, but not so long that everyone has jumped ship.
Men on Tinder can be unoriginal, annoying, and even vulgar. The Grade is an effective dating app which puts quality control front and centre.
On The Grade, users rate each other and can report crass behavior. Users who are so awful as to attain an F rating are expelled from the app. The Grade does not have as many users as some other dating apps, but it is certainly worth your time if it is popular in your area as it picks up all the women who are experiencing Tinder fatigue, but are still interested in online dating.
Pure is a discreet and instant app to meet others. Meeting is the key word here- you don’t waste time chatting, as you only have one hour to talk to your match, in which time you are supposed to organise your real-life meet-up. Pure represents a great way to cut the small talk and get to the point.
This app is ideal for those who are not looking for anything serious. Be aware that due to its intense security measures including self-destruction of chat history, it is a favorite among cheaters.
The app has a three-month trial period, but membership costs after that are quite expensive.
