Now that Tinder is charging for its services, it might be time to turn to one of the many other dating apps available.
Since its 2012 launch, Tinder has quickly become one of the most popular forms of online dating.
The easy to use dating app has resulted in more than 10 billion matches, ever since its inception in 2012. Well, not really and there are a number of reasons that suggest we need an alternative to Tinder.
One of the reasons for Tinder’s popularity was the fact that it was free.
Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.
Verdict: The more you think about it, the less sense Down makes.
Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do different.
This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.Its simplicity has been part of what makes it so attractive to its users – using geolocation, the app shows users profiles of their preferred gender and age-range within a set geographical area.
