Tired of Tinder? 6 Dating App Alternatives for a Change of Scene

Whether you are single or not, chances are you or someone you know are on Tinder. The popular dating app has garnered much success due to its novelty and ease of use when it first came onto the scene. But with the mass amount of people now on Tinder, it’s hard to filter out the ones you don’t want to efficiently get to the ones you do want. If you are weary of the Tinder scene, give these next few apps a try. Maybe you’ll meet someone different than the rest.

1. Tastebuds - Music connects us

If you love music, Tastebuds is for you. It highlights music tastes. You can send others songs or messages whether you are matched with them or not.


2. Bumble - Feminist Tinder

The biggest highlight of Bumble is that men are not allowed to start off the conversations and that ladies have the first say. She only has 24 hours to make the first move, or the connection will disappear forever.

If you are an active female, Bumble is the right dating app for you.


3. Happn - Cross paths with the love of your life

You’ll have to turn on location service for this one to work. Happn connects people who’ve crossed paths by pinpointing the last time and place you were near each other; so you wouldn’t have another missed connection. That cute guy or girl you saw in the subway or at that coffee shop? Never miss another chance ;) Press “like” to open the option to chat.

Happn works best for big city dwellers.


4. Coffee Meets Bagel - One bagel a day

CMB will send you only one “bagel” - a potential match a day. You have 24 hours to decide whether to “like” or “pass” on this bagel. If you liked your bagel and they liked you as well, you will connect. This chat room will disappear in 8 days regardless of whether you have talked to each other or not.

For those looking to develop meaningful relationships, for haste makes waste.


5. Hinge - Based on your Facebook friends

Hinge is the more reliable version of Tinder where it’s not completely randos coming up, rather, friends of (Facebook) friends. So that cute guy or girl you spotted in one of your friend’s pics? This could be a more natural way than stalking them. Based on your answers to its questionnaire, Hinge will show you a selected list of the people who have all the things in common with you. You can also use this app to scope out secondary connections and ask your friend for an introduction.

Hinge is for the timid stalker in you, who is also kind of old-school.


6. OkCupid - Detailed dating profiles

OKCupid’s two most distinct features are that it doesn’t require users to sign up through Facebook, and that users can create extensive profiles. No detail is too small.

Choose OkCupid if you enjoy learning others’ stories.
