Interesting online dating sites
If you know what you’re looking for, which by now you likely do, there’s no reason to waste time. Bumble is hugely popular, but the options for the over-40 crowd are fewer than in other age groups.
(Hence the lower rating on our part.) Bumble is similar to Tinder in the sense that you’ll swipe yes or no on potential matches, but it’s different in that the woman has to start the conversation in the first 24 hours after matching. Women tend to favor this app because there’s a lower chance of getting creepy one-liners as conversation openers, which in turn becomes a plus for men who want to meet women who are actually looking for the real deal. The most challenging thing about dating apps is dealing with the sheer volume of potential matches.
Your Facebook name, profile photo and other personal information you make public on Facebook (e.g., school, work, current city, age) will appear with your comment.
The app traffics mainly in creative types and anything ultra status-y: celebrities, people who work in the media, athletes, and even reality TV contestants.
A somewhat controversial element is that women pay a basic subscription rate, but men actually pay per message for each woman they get in touch with. First of all, their top priority is your privacy, which is crucial.
On the one hand, this is a little bit obnoxious, but on the other, you know that anytime a conversation is started, there’s true interest there. The League specifically blocks anyone you’re friends with on Facebook or Linked In from seeing your profile.
I took the test and scored 67 out of 100 QI points, and according to the site that makes me “an intriguing, colorful character.” (I’d like to think that 100 out of 100 QI points makes you Zoeey Deschanel.) On loveflutter, you can “collect funky badges” (seems a little corporate/juvenile) and suggest a date, like on How About We.
The feature I suspect users would like most, though, are the “Instagram-like effects” they have available to make your photos “look ten times cooler.” Or ten times hotter, since everyone looks better through a filter.
