Valentine’s Day 2021 sees people’s dating lives as a special challenge. Pandemic-hit 2020 pushed us all back to our home’s cramped spaces, and it became a struggle to meet new people and then go on date with someone. It might be a good time to try out some online dating, with Valentine’s Day 2021 around the corner. Here are five dating apps that could help you build some new friendships and relationships.
Online Apps To Search For Your Date:
For anyone looking for a long-term and serious relationship, OkCupid calls itself the perfect dating app. It takes time to construct an account, but Anukool Kumar, Marketing Director, OkCupid India, describes why “The process of making a profile on OkCupid is deliberately time-intensive where users have to answer a minimum of 15 questions. The algorithm considers your responses to questions, your preferences, interests and hobbies, and your profile to find you the people you’re compatible with to date.”
Grindr is among the most common dating apps that address the date in LGBTQI groups in particular. Though you get the core functions on Grindr for free, to access the premium features, including the ability to see who is online, and selected images, you’ll have to upgrade the account to Grindr XTRA.
This dating app is one that perhaps many of us have already used. Launched in 2016 in India, Tinder quite quickly gained popularity as a dating app. With the tagline, Tinder goes: ‘Match. Chat. Date’. This describes the forum pretty much. While Tinder is dubbed because of its swipe-and-select feature as the app for casual relationships and hookups, there are couples who met here and later got married. So, we’re not going to pass any general judgments on Tinder and this could be the area this Valentine’s Day where you discover the genuine romantic partner.
Hinge is a mobile dating app that allows you several ways to let someone feel you are willing to start a conversation. It is an absolute break from the swipe culture. You can either like their image or respond to a prompt from the Hinge that they replied to. Themes like ‘a life goal of mine’,’ my most divisive view’, and so on are included in the templates.
Bumble is yet another app that allows you to socialize anything. By selecting the right choice on Bumble, you can find a Friend, make a business link, or schedule a date. Only female users may make the first contact with the male they have corresponded with heterosexual matches. The likes you make for Bumble last just 24 hours, and then vanish. On Valentine’s Day 2021, Bumble might be the perfect app to create a potential relation, date, or friendship.
