    "I'm a bit ashamed to say that I have this app on my phone. I don't actually use it to pick up women. It's more of a curiosity for me. I like to swipe through the profiles just to see what type of people are on it. I would be way too shy and wary to actually contact anyone. "

    "This app did not work well for me. First off, I am a lesbian. I am not interested in men. I am also not interested in getting into weird misunderstandings with straight girls. I want to meet other lesbians, but this app didn't do that for me. I can also see where some people might try to use this app to be creepy and stalkerish."

    "I heard a lot of bad things about this app or at least about the people that use this app. After trying it for a while I can safely say that I've had no problems using it to socialize with others. It makes it much easier than going out to meet people. I can meet others with the touch of a button, which is nice. I've met some people that I've liked and others I didn't. All in all, I've made some good friends by using it."

    #4Bumble

    Bumble

    Bumble is a dating app where women make the first move and a respond must be done within 24 hours or else the connection will expire, which is changing the archaic dating rules. But, in same-sex matches, either person can message first.

    "This dating app has all the ideas and some are novel but unfortunately, as of now they do not have the technology. Between fake profiles, spam, being buggy and pushing an agenda that is in conflict with my own ideals, it just screams run away."

    "OKCupid Dating is the dating app in my opinion, it has a lot of the great features and it helped me find my true match. I especially like how only certain people are allowed to send me messages."

    "This app still has a bit of catching up to do to other apps such as Tinder. There aren't a lot of people on it my area. I often see profiles of people too far away from me. A lot of profiles also seem to be fake so I don't rely on this too much for dating."

    "I would say this app is not the best solution for best dating apps in DC. The reason for this is because it doesn't look like an app specific to the DC area. It looks like a generalized app and the reviews are in spanish and DC is not a spanish primary community. "
