The future is unpredictable. It seems like it was just a few years ago that we still used the postal services and were amazed by the capabilities of the dial-up internet. But now the world wide web is absolutely essential in our daily lives, and we cannot imagine any part of our existence without the Internet.
But why is that? Well, it is simply convenient, it allows everyone to do something, to be interested in all sorts of different topics, read books, watch movies, listen to music, and in general, enjoy the beauty of life from the comfort of one’s home. The same can be said about dating. It seems ridiculous that the possibility of online dating was non-existent back in the day, but now it is the most convenient way of meeting other people. But there are thousands of different services to choose from, so which one should you pick?
Well, here are the top five best dating apps for iOS.
In addition to scrolling through the profiles of people you like, you can see if they are verified in other social networks or if a user has a valid phone number. In general, the interaction mechanics are very similar to Tinder. But there is a difference – here, you can set the status to “Wants to talk,” receive notifications about users alike from the application within a predetermined radius around you, as well as simply receive messages from other users, even if they did not like your profile.
The service gives you the ability to conduct streams, order paid promotion of your profile, and view non-reciprocal likes of your profile (the feature is worth around $7). There are also internal tokens that can be exchanged for profile promotion. Also here you can find “doubles” – users of your gender who look just like you, or users of the opposite sex, who look like the people you liked in the past.
Here’s yet another great service for meeting Russian brides, be sure to give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
It is impossible to say exactly what Match is – a classic application or a social network. Fans agree that after all, it’s the latter, and there is a reason for that. Match has a convenient search function which works by using keywords; it allows you to comment on profiles and mark your favorites, take photos right inside the app, and even read the news feed. The feature of having “favorite contacts” adds the ability to always keep the people with whom you communicate most often in touch, and the notifications of the messages you have viewed are, in this case, a nice bonus. At the same time, do not forget that Match is still an application for dating and meeting other people, albeit incredibly similar to Facebook.
The oddity of Down, especially if we are to compare it to some other apps on the market, lies in the fact that it is looking for partners for dating and friendly sex among your friends on Facebook. All you need to do is to mark all the people that you like (you can also access the list of “friends of friends”). If a person whom you’ve marked is using the application and, which is important, marks you back, you can start communicating with that person. Despite the relative publicity of the entire process, the fact that you are using the application will only be known to people with whom you’ve already matched via the app. Let’s not forget about yet another useful feature of Down which is called Daily Picks. It offers three options to choose from each and every day.
The project was launched in the summer of 2018. The key criterion to its users is the belonging to Christianity of the Eastern or Western rite, or to Protestantism. The public organization “Territory of responsibility” is behind the creation of the application. During the registration process, the user must specify their gender, height, date of birth, city of residence – and indicate the age of the potential partner and the distance they are willing to travel to meet another person in the search conditions. It is forbidden to use photos that depict full-on or partial nudity. Also, you cannot search for the profiles of your gender.
When you intersect with other users in the same city and district, you receive alerts in Happn. There is also a timeline which gives you all the profiles of people with whom you have recently crossed paths. The principle is quite simple: you press like for the people you like. Preferences are hidden until a user likes you back. You can also send messages without liking a person – but this feature is not available to free users. The application has an element of gamification – there is a game called CrushTime which allows you to guess which of the recent 4 profiles with whom you’ve crossed paths is interested in you. To increase the number of preferences and be able to send an unlimited number of messages within 24 hours, you will have to buy a premium account.
