Four words: best new dating app
But which one?
Dating apps have become so individual, so catered that finding the best new dating app is almost like finding the right partner.
It takes time (and a little luck)
To help you in your search for YOUR best new dating app, check out these fabulous suggestions, which are super cool and innovative.
“Tinder for Beards” CNBC
Now, we can’t deny the fact that everyone has different tastes in life, different quirks and likes. Bristlr focuses on the fact that some women like a man with a beard, and if that sounds like you, this is the app you should be downloading right now! It will save you from having to look through endless profile pictures in the search for some facial fuzz.
Known purely as the ‘Social Beard Network’ this app literally focuses on whether you have a beard or not, if you’re a man, and whether you like beards, if you’re a woman.
According to John Kershaw the founder, “we’re one of the few dating apps out there with a shortage of men. In London, for example, we have twice as many people looking to date someone with a great beard, than we have available beards!”
He went on to add “also, if you take the total length of beard hair grown by our users, since Bristlr started, it would go round the world three times.” Now that my friends, is a lot of beard hair!
So, are beard lover type apps the future of dating apps? John thinks so, “the rise in niche dating apps is letting people use super simple apps to find people they have something in common with, beyond just proximity. We’re actually opening up our platform over on M14 Industries to let anyone make their own niche app, which is super exciting.”
“We Believe Relationships Start With A Conversation”
This is a popular dating website in the mainstream, but it has branched out into app form, to make it easier for users to stay connected and find their potential matches on the go. You could easily meet your future partner in your lunch hour!
As with many larger dating websites, you can browse and message for free, but you need to pay for the more premium-style services, such as VIP search facilities.
The Smooch slogan is ‘we believe relationships start with a conversation’, so talking on the app is the first step, meaning you are free to start a conversation for, literally, free. You can log in with Facebook to make the whole thing quicker, and the popularity of the app really does speak for itself, making it a major player in the race to be the best new dating app.
“Self over selfies”
Our final choice is TextDater, a Virgin backed start up launched in mid 2015. The iPhone version is available now, and the Android version is due to be released at the end of Q1 2016.
TextDater targets singles looking for a relationship, not those who simply want to hook up. The app doesn’t focus on your profile picture, so you avoid superficial choices. Instead it’s about your personality, and what you say in your profile itself. TextDater works using compatibility, helping like-minded people meet and fall in sweet, sweet love, through similar interests.
Jon Pellington, founder of TextDater said: “A picture might be worth a thousand words but not when it comes to dating. People looking for a fresh start should take a new approach by joining a mobile dating scene without the pressure of endless selfies.”
He went on to say, “After going on one too many unsuccessful dates arranged through apps that focus on looks, I realised the mobile dating market was lacking a place where people could easily find potential partners based on the things that make each one of us unique. After all, no one can be summed by a few photos or a dropdown list of likes and dislikes.”
As someone who is passionate about the written word, this app definitely ticks all my “like” boxes and sounds like the perfect app for me!
Best New Dating App Is Just A Click Away
So, have you found your personal best new dating app?
Well, if you’re on the hunt for the best new dating app to help you meet the love of your life, the suggestions above are a great place to start.
Busy individuals don’t need to miss out on love with a capital L, because these apps make it so much easier to filter out those who simply aren’t compatible, or those who don’t have the same outlook or requirements from a relationship that you do.
