This is an app for people really looking for relationships.
The people you’ve crossed paths with most recently will be at the top, meaning if you go on during your lunch-break you’ll inevitably happen upon your colleagues.
Perhaps because they’re paying, people on the app definitely treat it more seriously.You’re asked to put in lots of details (including your height, which is rare) in order to create your “story” – for example, what you’re watching, what you spend most of your money on or how you’d describe yourself in three emoji.You can then “like” different aspects of someone’s story, be that a picture or one of their answers – you only get a handful of likes a day though.The stigma that was once attached to online dating has well and truly disappeared – in fact, you’re more likely to raise eyebrows if you’re single and not on any dating apps.Recent years have seen an explosion of dating apps, and there seem to be incredibly niche ones launching every day. For some people, swiping through fellow singles and potential romantic partners is merely a bit of fun and a way to entertain themselves during TV ad breaks.
