    "I find it difficult to meet people. I do rely on people to help me. I also like to use dating apps to see if I have anyone out there. Coffee Meets Bagel was great for what I needed. This matches you with someone and you have 24 hours to decided what to do."

    "It bases distances on where you are instead of where you live. Out of town you can't use it because it just presents locals. Spend a lot of time in 2 cities so you don't mind getting locals? When they are presented with your pic...they won't if you are outside their distance limit at the time"

    "I tried DOWN Dating after striking out with some other apps, but this was hopeless. While I appreciate its distinction between casual dates and serious, there are too few users. There were almost nobody in my area, and those who were in my area were...well... Let's not get into that. And you shouldn't get into DOWN Dating."

    "I thought this was gonna be another sugar daddy dating site but it turns out it is slightly better. I mean I still sensed a few diggers in one Luxy party I went to but most of the women there were looking for a serious relationship too. Got too excited that I can't seem to pick who to call that night. "
