    "I recently used Tinder as a dating app in India since there weren't that many other ones available. This made dating easily as I found my soulmate in a few hours just by swiping right or left. I availed the Tinder gold subscription and it offers more features such as mothly boost, unlimited likes, etc."

    "Happn provides a way to meet up with people that you are interested in, and cross paths with. You like someone's profile, if you run into them, you will get a notification. Don't worry they won't know, unless they like your profile too. Then, "It's a Crush". The app sounds kind of fun and like a good icebreaker to get to know people. "

    "Yet one of the best dating apps in India. I agree with the other comment that access to the internet is not so easy in india but as smartphones came into play, it has changed the dating trend a lot. I like this app for it lets me customize my chats with different emoticons, themes, and gifs. Plus as a proud member of LGBT i can also set the sexual preference. 5 stars~!!"

    "Living in India for some time now I have found it very difficult to find people to date given my increasing nervousness and uneasiness thanks to having not settled in completely. I tried a few different dating apps and websites, but none of them really seemed tailored to my needs. With Kik I fix all those problems and I can have face to face conversations as well as free phone calls with people I meet through the app so I can break down a few of the barriers and let go of the uneasiness I have before meeting them in person for the first time. My only problem with this app is it doesn'[t have a good support from developers if you have a problem."

    "For dating in India, this could be a good app, but time will tell. You can install it for free, but there are some paid upgrades too. There seem to be a lot of women on it, but it is hard to make a connection sometimes. I will keep trying this and other apps too. Who knows where you will find a good match?"

    "Technology and dating meet in one app. This is a great app to meet that special someone or even if you just want to find someone you can spend some time with and enjoy a more vibrant social life. The best part is you can actually add a video to your profile as your display avatar to introduce yourself. :D"

    #8Bumble

    "I happened to be travelling in India last summer, and I was feeling a bit lonely so I looked for a locally popular dating app, and soon found Bumble, which apparently a lot of people use over there. I found the app to be buggy, slow loading, and I got the same matches over and over again, many of which I suspect were spam, or scammers of some kind. There may be some reason why it is particularly popular among Indians, or maybe I was just misinformed, but based on its own merits the app isn't very good, I didn't meet anybody, and I would use many other dating apps in preference to this one."

    "This app is more than OK but not stellar. I was looking for something specific to India, which this isn't, but it does let me find women in my area, which is obviously a plus (imagine the travel expenses if it didn't) I was able to view it in a fun way, with colored dots showing on a map potential dates near me. I can use filters and block people, i can message with people and get to know them. Overall, it isn't too bad. I would recommend giving it a whirl."

    "So if you're in India like I am, you know it's not easy finding results on a lot of dating apps out there. This one is definitely different. There are people, actual people who aren't awful! My only complaint is that even though it's a free app, there are 'paid' features that really make the app complete. Without the paid features, you're not gonna get very far unfortunately. But there is hope yet!"

    "I think this app has some bugs. When you try to filter the advanced search and look for a specific city or location, it says not available. Although I like the idea that this is a free application, I hate the fact that i still need to pay juist to maximize the features. Definitely not the best app."

However, I dowloaded this app and tried it in my country but it doesn't seem to open or it takes forever to load? Is it my location or just my device? Pls anybody who has the same experience."

    "This is a great option to meet other single people that are serious about dating and considering the option of marriage. There is an age minimum, so this filters out a lot of immature individuals, which I consider a great thing for the purpose of this app."
