It’s formatted like Tinder (but with more profile), it tells you if you’ve crossed paths like happn and you can use it for friends or dating like Bumble. If you want a quick way to find people who roll with the same crowd as you and don’t want to ask your friend about that cute coworker, Hinge could be the answer. The ironically named Pure is even more effective than Tinder for making casual, ahem, connections. Their 20-questions quiz goes beyond the basic info that a lot of other dating apps ask for.It also has over 300 million users between its website and its app, which means a large dating pool, but also more scammers and fake accounts. Hinge matches you up with friends of friends based on your Facebook contacts. Users post an invitation to hang out and then choose from respondents whom they want to meet. Specify whether you’re using it for friends, a hook up or dating to make sure you find someone looking for the same. There are apps that bring together people with similar nerdy interests, apps designed for encounters even more casual than what Tinder delivers, and profile-heavy apps that really get into the specifics of users’ personalities. Bumble is like Tinder, but with all the power in the ladies’ thumbs, and far fewer inappropriate pics.Here, the female always initiates, and instead of collecting matches, you’re forced to actually talk, with matches expiring after 24 hours (you can extend one promising connection per day).
