The messages last long for a week only and after that, everything will be erased. So, this app is pretty much forces you to get connected in real like. If you don’t like a person in a week, then there is no point chatting with each other, so I personally like this concept.

If you’re not sure, then you can share a link of any of yours social media profile like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or whatever social media platform you use often else you can exchange your mobile number. but you’ve to be very careful, because you don’t want to get hooked up with a gold digger or criminal.

6. Hinge

dating apps

Hinge is one tinder like apps. In fact, it looks like a sister project of Tinder but that’s not the case. The UI is very similar to the Tinder but little more interactive and smooth. It uses your Facebook profile to connect with people.

It will search for friends of friends of your friends who are using their app and showcase them you. Hinge is a pure dating app, not for people looking to get hooked up, so one of your Facebook friends should be using this dating app so that you can find people in friend’s circle.

You can upload your profile pictures from Facebook, Instagram. This system limits you especially when you’re not active on either of these social media platforms. No one can message you without getting MATCHED and you can expect to not see any inappropriate pictures because it uses Facebook and people can only use  their official Facebook pictures.

Like we said earlier, it’s really a recommended app because it’s more of a pure dating app unlike Tinder other one night stand app – thumbs up!

Though, it lacks in fancy functionalities but it’s a good app for women who want protection and safety. Here is what Hinge says “Inspired by love, and guided by authenticity, Hinge creates meaningful connections among those bold enough to seek real relationships.”

7. Taste Buds

dating apps

Taste buds is a unique app you’ll ever find. We are not sure how many of you guys are aware of this app, but this is app is really worth trying – especially if you’re a music lover.

So, this app allows you start your profile without any social media account requirement. However, you can connect your Facebook account to the app, but it’s up to you. If you want to connect it to the Facebook then use Facebook otherwise you can fill out your profile yourself.

The UI is simple but little uneasy – more on that later. You’ll be asked to fill out couple of question. Since the main concept of this dating app is based on “music taste of people” so you’ll be asked to fill our your favorite tracks.

We all love music and we know song of choice pretty much defines the personality of people, so if you find a profile which have same song choice as of yours then you might want to message the person.

You can message anyone before and after match, so the restrictions are limited. You can send song tracks to people. Since their is no match restriction, the app has hundreds of thousands of users, and you’ll never run out of new people to chat with, new music to discover, or fun things to do.

Overall, it’s really a new concept and you’ll definitely enjoy it. Like we said earlier, it has some problems like you can’t find you previous matched people or match history to be precise, the app only plays clips, and UI has issues.

It’s easy to skip on profiles, the like button should be replaced to right-side, better motion while checking profiles of people. If Taste buds work on these areas then it would be a good experience with new concept for dating.

Overall, it’s a nice unique dating app that definitely worth your time especially if you’re a music freak.

8. Match

best dating appsMatch.com is one of the best dating sites available on Internet. And, not to our surprise, they launched the mobile app version for people. It was launched in 1995 and today serves millions of singles in 24 countries, insane, right?

Well, unlike most of apps, you don’t need your Facebook profile to initiate your profile on Match.com, but you do have to upload picture and fill in basic information about yourself which is pretty simple an basic.

Match.com have a lot of people so you’ll never fell short of people. However, this app requires premium subscription to get the most out of app, so if you don’t have budget then it might be an issue like it offers who’s recently looked at your profile and who has liked your pictures, and includes a bunch  of other features.

Its UI is simple and smooth, and easy to use. However, you’ll need time to get use to it. It has bunch of related tabs like “matches,”  “viewed me,” “search,” and “mixer” which breakdown the app according to premium features.

9. Bumble

Bumble is a new dating app with a twist in working mechanism and we love it, haha. This app is pretty much similar to Tinder but works differently. Like tinder, you’ve to signup for the app using Facebook profile which might be annoying to couple of people but it helps to kick out spammer and keep the safety for app users, so end of the day it’s good for you.

Once two opposite gender match with profile, then Girl has to message a single man. She has 24 hours to do so. If, she is not interested then she will not reply. However, if  guy really want to hear from girl then he can extend the process for 24 hours. Basically, if the girl might get busy then it’s a good option.

Unlike Tinder, when you swipe up, you see the additional picture of person. In tinder, it means super liking the profile, so you don’t have to forcefully see the people who thumbs up your profile.

The UI is very interesting and smooth. It’s easy to use. You can not send any P**n content to the user, it’s strictly prohibited as stated in Terms&condition which we people often ignore.

The funny and interesting part of this app is that Girls have to initiate, so if you’re a girl then it might be possible that you might not like this idea as some Girls just time pass on mobile apps.

You can read bumble’s blog which often posts success dating stories. The people  who met through this app and successfully dating or got married.
