Before you join, the app has to approve you as a member (a slightly daunting process) or you have to be invited.If you want to unlock certain features you either have to pay or invite other to join.If you don’t like your option, you can play ‘give or take’ - where you either ‘take’ a possible match or ‘give’ them away by emailing their details to a friend.
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.
It means you can join up with a friend, search for other pairs and go on a group date.
It’s based in the UK so most of the user base will be here, and it means you don’t have to worry so much about awkward silences or safety.
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.
Instead it only lets you match with people who share your mutual friends - and it shows you a new ‘batch’ of users every day.
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.
A possible drawback could be a limited number of users – those figures aren’t available online - but it does look like a good app if music plays a significant part in your life and loves.
