While being in a relationship can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life, the dating game can be frustrating and heartbreaking. Using computers for matchmaking is not a new idea, but the current crop of dating apps owes a lot to Tinder.
Which in turn is a knockoff of a gay dating app called Grindr. All the apps on this list have copied it to varying extents. Every new face opens a new realm of possibilities.
What if I ended up marrying this one? The fantasy is more important than the outcome. Bumble is a Tinder clone with a twist. The woman has to make the first move. Women like this because it cuts down on the of creeps. I like it because it saves me having to message a bunch of women who will never message me back. So even though this is game-like, I can appreciate it. Not only does the woman have to message first, she only has 24 hours to do so. Otherwise the connection is lost. The man can extend the window to 48 hours, but only for one match a day. It all seems so arbitrary, and indeed it is.
With a few extra bucks here and there, you can extend and renew your connections.
It borrows one particularly obnoxious aspect from video games: microtransactions. You get a couple of matches a day without spending a single bean. The thing is, anything else is going to cost you. Cough up some beans. Want to jump to the head of the line of a particularly popular match? Pay up. I understand that CMB needs to make money to keep the lights on, but it gets tiresome. All of these apps are annoying to some extent, so why do I stay? For example, I downloaded a dating app called Happn, that finds people you cross paths with in real life.
And then there was Hinge, a Tinder clone that I liked better than Tinder. It worked great, until they started adding expiration dates to conversions. It quickly turned into a ghost town. Last I heard it was a pay app that I have no interest in. Ultimately it comes down to the people. Ultimately the goal of these dating apps is to stop using them.
