Facebook dating applications review
Download the app, create a profile, upload some fabulous pictures, write an equally impressive bio and voila.But of course, not all dating apps are created equal; which is why we've turned to dating coach and relationship expert David Kavanagh as well as our in-house serial dater to give us their verdict on the apps that deserve to take up space on your home screen.
So when the In Style team was looking for volunteers to write a real-life, first-person review of dating apps, well… Read on for my findings: Tinder I’m going to assume I don’t need to introduce the concept of Tinder and its reputation to you.
Cost: Free The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
I went on at least five horrible dates (like with the guy who told me my pictures weren’t doing me any favors) and a few amazing dates (like with the guy who I ended up seeing for close to six months).
I’m not a fan of the swiping, or the unsolicited comments on my body, so eventually I retired it as an option.
