Try Newer Apps
One of the reasons that I periodically try online dating again is because you meet happy couples all the time that met on an app. But I notice that I often hear them say things like, “We met on Tinder, back when it was good” or, “We met on Hinge, back when it was good.”
It seems like the trend with dating apps is that the first few cycles of people who join are actually cool people genuinely interested in a relationship, but the latter waves are ones just looking to hook up. Sameera agrees with this, which is why she suggests trying new apps on the market.
A good one is The League, which started out as an “elite” app for Ivy League graduates, and has since expanded to people who are simply smart and driven. She’s also heard good things about a new app called Cheekd, which uses a cross-platform low-energy Bluetooth technology to match you with people who are in your direct vicinity. She’s not a fan of Bumble, which she believes “makes men passive and lazy when they were already passive to begin with.”
