6 Dating Apps and Sites If You’re Single And Looking To Mingle

Are you fed-up of spending every other weekend with your couch and your television? Do you feel like the third wheel when your friends come with their dates? There are times when you too feel the need to be with someone other than your friends. We are listing five of the most happenig and popular online dating apps. Who knows, may be you could find someone interesting!

1. Tinder

Tinder totally changed the meaning of online dating with its efficiency to find you a more suitable date based on your proximity and once you've approved them. Uses Facebook information to create your profile (don’t worry, it wouldn’t ever post on your Facebook wall without your consent), locates the suitable singles in your area. The best feature of Tinder is that you can just like a profile by swiping right while you swipe left, if you don’t like it.

Pros: It's quick and easy. You can set up your profile in less than a minute.

Cons: Revolves around quick hook ups and casual sex, not for you if you're looking for a long-term serious relationship.

Available on: Both iOS and Android



If stalking strangers creeps you out or you are not the type of person to talk to a total stranger, Hinge is the app for you.  You log into it through your Facebook profile and Hinge does the noble task of finding you matches based on your friend list. The safety quotient rises, when you know that you have friends in common.

Pros: Safer, since you know that you have got mutual Facebook friends.

Cons: The constant invite friend pop-up, becomes annoying.

Available on: Both iOS and Android.



It’s free, very easy to get register and the enormity of match everyday it offers makes it perfect for the singles. It matches you based on your location, interests, likes/dislikes and many other important factors. If you are on OkCupid for a casual hook up, it will match you to a person with same motive while the people seeking serious relationships can also find singles with the same requirement.

Pros: They have this percentage feature to show you how compatible you are with the person. Note: Anything below 30% match isn’t compatible with you.

Cons: The annoying ads, running on the site.

Available on: Both iOS and Android.


Now, while other applications have pretty cool features and that too for no cost at all. Match.com offers very few perks. The free users can set-up online profiles, upload their pictures and can the flirt online with the “Wink” feature while the paid users can also see the user that visited their profile and liked a picture. Very Tinder –like feature allows the users to like or dislike a profile easy and quick.

Pros: Android users can like or dislike a profile from their smart watches.

Cons: There are many fake profiles and plus the paid subscription has left the app less interesting.

Available on: Both Android and iOS.



Badoo helps you match you with singles with the similar interests and location. Good for a casual hook up, nothing much for the people looking for serious relationship kind of stuff.

Pros The ‘Spotlight’ feature is cool, helps you find more relevant matches.

ConsBeware of the fake profiles.

Available on: Both iOS and Android
