Philippine students for dating
Algorithms are smarter and sharper, and you can meet up with people in your area in literal minutes if you wanted to.
I do slightly appreciate the way you are able to get into contact with one of your matches (you send them 5 questions, they send you 5 back, you get to talking), but not being able to see anyone’s face is too much to ask. By making people think up of date ideas as part of their profile, it’s a great way to see how people think, and what they like.
And just like OK Cupid, you basically have no privacy; absolutely anyone can check you out and message you, and vice-versa. I was complaining about OKCupid’s crazy filters but I’d like them back, please. It took all of the wrong parts of social networking and made it into some kind of free-for-all dating app. It takes forever to finish your profile (and when it says you’re done, you’re actually only 40% done and still have a ton of follow-up questions), only to find out that you have to PAY to get any decent action in. I do not have all day to set up my profile because looking for a date isn’t my day job.
They also have this terrible Chat Roulette-type gimmick where you shake your phone and the app will match you up with someone who also happens to be shaking their phone, and you two are instantly put together and pretty much forced to chat! And I hate to say it but the people who use this app leave a lot to be desired. Or let’s just be superficial and head to Tinder where if you get poorly-phrased opening lines, it’s at least from people you find attractive. The only amusement I got from this was reading the posts on people’s walls full of jeje speak, and grammatical errors. Technically, you can get matches for free, but here’s the catch: YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE. When I finally set it up, I got myself matches that for some reason have no faces. Despite the 40 minutes it took to get through all the questions, I was looking forward to finally using this app because it was being extremely thorough about the important questions.
Smartphones have changed the dating game immensely in the last few years.
Now, choosing your potential mate (or one-night stand) is just a matter of swiping on your phone.
This feels so much like Friendster when it comes to viewing profiles.
