Best Dating Apps like Tinder for Android and iPhone

June 08, 2017

Over the course of the previous few years Tinder has become such a dominant force in the online dating industry that many mistakingly regard it as the entire dating world itself. However, the reality is that there are many dating applications for smartphone users, which are not worse and in many respects even better than the popular Tinder. Online dating as a whole has enjoyed a growing trend recently, including the expansion of apps that provide mobile access. This article aims to present you with some of the most exciting dating applications available today.

1)    HowAboutWe
Thanks to its incredibly effective design and layout, dating on HowAboutWe is incredibly effortless and simple. Even though it does not yet boast a particularly huge userbase, HowAboutWe is certain to become the next big thing. Keep in mind that the app caters primarily to daters seeking affairs and romance, while inappropriate content and behaviour is not something one would expect here.

2)    Pure
Similarly to Tinder, Pure focuses on that group of daters, for whom privacy is of primary concern. Whenever you log in to the app, you will be presented with a list of people who are close to where you are, and are available for a date. Your chat history, as well as any pictures or videos you have share, are automatically deleted after an hour. Such an approach is great for those who are not patient enough to exchange messages back and forth and want to proceed straight to action instead.

3)    Bristlr
This niche dating application concentrates mainly bearded male singles and their admirers. Unlike most other dating apps, where, upon registration, you are required to state your gender and relationship status, Bristlr asks whether or not you have a beard.

4)    TasteBuds
TasteBuds is the perfect dating destination for those daters who consider compatibility and similar principles to be of utmost importance in any relationship. Therefore, if you are hoping to meet your soulmate and start a long-term committed relationship, TasteBuds will certainly be able to help you with loads of opportunities to meet new exciting people. Discuss your favorite movies, share your iTunes playlist, and hopefully you will meet somebody who likes all the things you like.

5)    OkCupid
With millions of registered members worldwide, OkCupid is probably one of the better known dating destinations on this list. Needless to say, all of those users didn't end up using this particular app by incident – OkCupid attracts followers with an abundance of fun dating tools. Thanks to its huge and diverse userbase, you are certain to find the right person, no matter how specific your preferences might be. Members who choose to upgrade their OkCupid profile also enjoy new excellent perks such as the ability to see who likes you and browsing anonymously.

6)    Happn
Unsurprisingly in regards to the title of this article, this is another app that is similar to Tinder. Whenever you discover somebody you like, click the heart button and you will be notified if the other person feels the same way about you. Only those users who are currently nearby are listed on your feed, so that you may arrange an exciting date for that same day. Happn is available for download for both Android- and iOs-users.

7)    Hinge
Lastly, Hinge aims to be the opposite of Tinder. It links your Hinge account to your Facebook profile, allowing you to connect with your Facebook friends, their friends, and friends of their friends. The main idea is to let one meet somebody from their existing social circle, which implies having similar tastes and principles. Although you can't really hook up with a total stranger on Hinge, having a mutual friend with somebody is usually a good topic to start a conversation. And who knows what that conversation may lead to? Just like most other applications on this list, Hinge is available on iTunes, as well as on GooglePlay.
