15 Apps Like Tinder That Are Free (Regardless Of Age)
If you’re afraid that by now Tinder has just been overrun by married people looking for side action, Catfish and creeps A) You’re right and B) You need another website. How about 15? Here are 15 apps like Tinder that are free — even if you are over 30.
Hinge pulls from your Facebook friends, their friends, and those friends’ friends to find you matches. So the upside is you can easily research your matches, but the downside is they can easily research you.
The app actually says, “Skip the chatting, and get to smacking those cheeks.” What more do you need to know?
Happn matches you up with people who you’ve been within a one-city block radius of recently. The app even tells you how many times you’ve been in the same place as that person.
Loveflutter wants you to, well, make your decisions based on a flutter apparently. It doesn’t give you much else to go by: people’s photos are blurred and users are only allowed 140 characters to describe themselves.
Pure is admittedly only temporarily free, but when you sign up you get five free “tickets.” Each ticket is good for an hour during which time your profile is visible. It finds you geographically close matches like Tinder.
Bumble is for the women, by the women. Men are not allowed to send the first message, which eliminates the number one problem of online dating: creepy, unsolicited messages from dudes.
You can finally see how others rate the dater. Or, actually, how they “grade” them. Users have a grade based on the quality of their profile, their response times, the tone of their messages and so on.
Are voices a big turn on or turn off for you? You need Revealr. Users have to upload a 20 second voice clip to their profile.
JSwipe is essentially the app for JDate. You can just swipe your way to the chosen one.
The League is just what it sounds like: a bit uppity. The app looks through your Facebook and Linkedin to see if you’re up to par. Next you’re put on a waiting list before getting access to the app.
Tastebuds choses your matches based on how your and his or her Spotify and iTunes selections match up. So if you’re pretentious, here you go.
You could visit your local hipster neighborhood or you could go on Bristlr which, as the app says, works at “Connecting those with beards to those who want to stroke beards.”
Looking for someone to go to wine pairings with and stay in art-deco boutique hotels with? Glimpse will find them by matching up your Instagram accounts.
Skout is quite similar to Tinder in that there is a premium paid version and a free one. Your location is only revealed if you allow it. Unfortunately the free version comes with ads.
Coffee meets bagel
Coffee meets bagel searches your Facebook connections and their connections and sends you a match every day at noon. If you choose to, you have one week to chat with that person until communication is cut.
