Real true dating
Changes in the last year have made Ok Cupid a bit more like Tinder, focusing more on swiping and eliminating the ability to message a user without matching with them first.
You can still send a message -- it just won't show up in the recipient's inbox unless you match.
Hinge focuses on common connections that you and a potential partner share on Facebook.
Bumble also has a BFF feature, but that's really not the focus of a dating app gallery, so I'll save it for another time.
If you want to play the odds when it comes to online dating, you need to be swiping where everyone's swiping.
On the upside, the profiles are brief, which allows you to make decisions quickly.
After signing up, Happn showed me 68 users it said I had crossed paths with in the preceding three hours, though I hadn't left my apartment all day.
This might be helpful if you're looking to date your immediate neighbors (or Uber drivers), but I don't see the attraction when competitors like Tinder already show the distance between you and other users.
