Do you still remember the world BC (before COVID19)? I’m sure among the things that you miss would be your daily commute to work (not really?), Friday and Saturday nights out with friends, and if you are still single and ready to mingle, that occasional (twice a week? weekly? monthly?) date with someone you matched in a dating app. Now that we are still pretty much in quarantine, it really can be said that a lot of “romantic” or “love” lives have been put on hold because of social distancing. The irony of it all is that we have all the time for social media to compensate for our lack of actual social activities outdoors. The only hindrance to us fully enjoying is the fact that we can’t see each other face to face, at least in the meantime.

That is why people are asking, what is the good of trying to look for “the one” through a dating app if you can’t see each other face to face? You are only making yourself susceptible to being a victim of catfishing and other dating “scams” and “frauds”. Well, that is, of course, if you have concrete plans of taking each and every match you have on these dating apps to the next level. If you have plans like that, maybe it’s time for you to do a reality check and remember to not take these apps too seriously. There is always that possibility that you’ll meet your special someone in a dating app, but don’t forget to always keep the fun element of meeting interesting personalities when using them. In other words, set minimal expectations when using these apps. So, without further ado, try to read up on these three most popular dating apps and see which one you would be the best fit for you.

Bumble

Bumble is a dating app that has phenomenally risen to popularity over the past years, it is even challenging the current leader of all dating apps, that app that makes you swipe left or right (we’ll talk about that app later). What makes this app special is that it’s the women (or at least those who identify themselves as a female in the app) who call the shots. Male members cannot initiate conversations or make any contact. So, if you are into an app that is empowering to women, give Bumble a try!

Of the half a dozen photos, please include one where we can see your eyes, one solo shot (so we can identify you in the group shots you insist on including), and one full-body shot too.

Tinder

Hail, the current sovereign of dating apps! Everyone who’s interested in dating, and I dare say even those who are not have surely come across this ubiquitous app. If you’re looking for an app that can cast the widest net for you because they have the most members (thus, more chances for you to find someone compatible with you), then better get back into swiping on Tinder.

Everybody knows Tinder is ALL about the pictures, but your bio is also super-important. DO NOT LEAVE IT BLANK. The main reason for not leaving your Tinder bio blank is that a person might think your account is fake (or a Tinder bot). You don’t want this.

OKCupid

If Tinder is the current ruler of the dating app world, OKCupid is the grandfather. Starting out as a website, OKCUpid has transitioned into an app that has also found a stable following. What’s great about this app is that you can send messages to anyone you ‘like” even if the other party doesn’t like you back, which is the case for Tinder. You can’t send videos to anyone through the app’s chat feature, though.

If you’re in your 20s or 30s and looking for a hookup or a casual dating relationship, OkCupid is a great choice. It’s free, popular, and has a large user pool especially if you’re in a big city.
