You can find forever love on the platform, but Tinder is an app best designed for more casual hookups. The new Millennial dating app offers casual daters the chance to find like-minded matches, though that doesn’t mean there aren’t serious relationship opportunities. As the app says, “You can be here for a long time and have a great time too.”
There have been 30 billion matches so far worldwide, which further attests to its practical use and short-term compatibility. Free to use, you can nominate your sexual orientation to narrow down the dating pool and then wait for viewers, which you can easily follow under the Likes You feature.
Matches are secured by Tinder photo verification, a much-needed extra security measure. Plus, if you’re a little nervous about meeting your match, go with Noonlight, which lets you bring someone along with all your dates. Swipe right or left, but either way, Tinder can help you find a whole variety of matches, no matter what kind of relationship you’re looking for.
Price: Tinder previously offered age-based pricing with two models for over 30s and under 30s. However, the company is phasing out this practice and replacing it with a flat-rate model.
