At first people were drawn to the app for its simplicity - users can swipe left to decline and right to approve a date. Now, it seems you can’t go anywhere without meeting couples who got together though it.
The app’s best quality is undoubtedly its sheer amount of users – there are 50 million active ones, so it’s unlikely you’ll run out of potential matches.
But the app has fallen in popularity compared to Tinder, and the fact that you can receive messages from anyone - without matching first - means that your inbox can quickly become clogged with sleaze. It matches you with people based on your location and a shared interest in music.
It can import your favourite tunes from your smartphone or and does the hard work for you by collating matches.
It also lets users have a more detailed profile than Tinder – which just offers a bio – and lets you add activities, preferred dating spots and so on. This UK website has more than 130,000 members and as one Twitter user tells me, it’s ‘perfect for meeting posh boys.’ This app has been popular over the last few years, as it shows people you have crossed paths with geographically.
The only issue is it makes the matching process a lot harder – two of you have to like two other people.
And what if you end up fancying the same person as your friend?
The only awkward thing is it means people in your social circle will all know you’re on the app, so if you’re not keen on having all your mates see your profile, this might not be for you. Spend most of your time complaining about life in London? It means you can match with hotties you live near, or with someone who always goes to the same bar as you.
Some people I know, though, have complained that though they receive matches, there’s often a reluctance amongst users to send messages.
