Da jeg først blev bedt om at skrive en dating app anmeldelse, var jeg tøvende. Everything on the internet seems to live forever, including my 5K race times from 1997, so I was not sure that I wanted my foray in the world of online dating to be so publicly documented and searchable in the future. Mænd jeg Bridget Jones navn og min try-anything-once mentality besluttede jeg at prøve.
With productivity in mind, I chose to nulle on the most common dating apps out there: Hinge, Bumble, Coffee Meets Bagel and Happn (Ed. Note: Vi slår ud Tinder fordi, ja, hvem er ikke på Tinder?). Mænd jeg stedet for at downloade og udforske hver enkelt app individuelt (som en normal person måtte gøre), I decided to download them all in one fall. Rødvin i hånden forbereder mig mentalt til at konfrontere spejle selfies, mænd snuggle med tigre, Tough Mudder-billeder, og selvfølgelig den altid frustrerende gruppe pic (I do not know how to get you out of a crowd?).

Men before I began to swing, I had to create the most prominent profiles that were imaginable. I chose carefully pictures, which I felt most accurately caught my essence. I wanted to say to the world: I’m active and fit, career oriented, I appreciate a nice pair of heels and I’m a fan of sarcasm and fast humor. In other words, I am opposed to fundamental. Nedenfor er mine detaljerede anmeldelser af hver oplevelse.
Dette er en dating app formel jeg kan komme bagved. In the course of the day, you get around 13 people to choose from, but your options are not exclusively consisting of random strangers. Jeg skal ved at knytte appen til Facebook, dine gæster skal være inden for dit netværk eller en ven af en ven. Hvilket means that if absolutely necessary, you can theoretically chase the common friend to give a sign witness to a future date. Inden for at spise præferenceindstillinger kan du definere aldersinterval, du er interesseret i og deres afstand væk (så du ikke forbinder med mænd, der bor to lande herover) udover at tilpasse din egen profil. You have the opportunity to include education, height, ethnicity, religion and any interests you identify with from a specified list. The function I appreciated most, however, was the ability to upload as many as 16 images. This made it possible for me to get that token picture of me golf i blandingen (because I think which one does not love a girl who golfer in the apartment?).

If you’re looking for a less overwhelming introduction to dating apps, this is definitely the one to try. Every day at noon you receive a bagel, which is a cured match that you share reciprocal Facebook friends with. Dette tog presset fra stor tid. I did not see anymore through endless currents of men. It came down to a simple “yes” or “no” to the game, and I was looking forward to my day. Once you have “enjoyed” each other, a chat room for digital sweet nothings opens to be exchanged. Men der er en fangst: Disse chatrum er forsynet med en udløbsdato. So if you need to make an app connection, it must be done within the 8 days when the chat room is open. I learned this in the hard way. If you by chance do not love the displayed options, visit the “Give and tag” section of the app. There you can see other qualified bachelors and either claim oneself by using “beans” (the currency of the app accumulated through different social media sharing or inviting friends to the app) or forward a match together to a friend who might be interested. Din profil på Coffee Meets Bagel er også lidt mere omfattende: They only allow 4 pictures of yourself, but you can list everything from height, occupation and education to your interests and what you are looking for in a partner.

Den relative nykommer på blokken, Bumble giver en helt anden adgang til dating app fænomener: The girl is obliged to reach out first (gisp!). Denne rolle reversering i forhold til andre apps er en interessant en. Suddenly I found myself breaking my brain for creative conversation starters. In addition to the female who has the proverbial power, there is also a time limit on the original communication. Når du har begge svinget til højre (eller “lide”) hinanden, har duen 24 timer at nå ud og start samtalen. (Min spilplan var på en søndag og start konvojen spørger om deres weekend.) Even if a guy really has his heart set on a girl who does not yet have to contact him, he can choose her once a day and add an extra 24 hours a day in the hope that she will send a flirting message and begin the potential kærlighedsaffære. I reacted really well to this model. It forced me to focus on only the men I actually was interested in talking to rather than the connections that were made while you were really pushing with a reckless task. Bumble søgerindstillinger var de samme som Hinge, men det giver kun 6 billeder af dig selv på din profil ud over din jobtitel og sted for beskæftigelse, uddannelse og en tagline til at dele noget jazzy om dig selv med 300 tegn eller mindre.

I currently are fighting strictly based on proximity. Hjemmeskærmen has a scrolling interface that allows you to see someone on the app as you crossed trails with that day. It is created more like a dating website, where many options are presented, and you can zero based on interest, rather than using swipe technology (where one touch left means you never see them again). Your profile can contain up to 6 pictures along with your name, profession, education and a card that shows exactly where you crossed paths with a potential suitor. When I first explored Happn, I found myself scanning the black color landscape on my way to work secretly and hoped that some of the more attractive men would later be shown in my queue. If you find someone of interest, you can either click on a button on their profile and hope they do the same after which you will be tuned or taken the direct route and send a “charm” review and start a conversation from there . Notice to first timers: Office areas are a gold mine.

I’m not sure if these dating apps will be permanent fixtures on my phone, but I think they open the door to a whole new group of undiscovered and potentially amazing romantic possibilities. Finally, I definitely meet my fair share of men in daily life, but this experience made me realize that it can not hurt to throw some dating apps into the mix as well.
