    "You know how people can easily fake their accounts on different social media today...that is my biggest fear and that is also the reason why Zoosk is among my best pick for online apps. It makes me feel like more secure becaause of its photo verification process. It has a Dating Insight feature which I find unique in its simplest sense--getting to know my self a little more. That means my behavior is being studied for better match-making. Yet, the best app!"

    "I think this app stood out from the rest of the choices because of its filtered esteem list of bachelors. I am always into professional young bachelors of my age. I am attracted to guys who are ambitious and goal-oriented. Aside from this, I believe almost all the guys in here are into serious relationships not just goofing around. It offers you like 4-7 matches per day that are compatible to you base on your preferences. This is very intuitive app as it utilizes Five Factor Model type of personality analysis."

    "Ive had my fair share of swipes to left and right but one thing is certain. I made real friends out of this app. I think the feature which requires new users to connect their facebook offers both good and bad sides. It is good as it allows for a safer and further verification, but on the other hand, i think it is an intrusion of personal privacy (I wan to be anonymous sometimes). The thing is you will see who among your facebook friends also use tinder. Sneaky huh? "

    "Whenever my friends would hear grinder, they always think gay people who use this are always into sex. Well, they are wrong. Although it is real that some gay guy users are into hookups, there are still some who like to get into real relationships. Ive made some research why grindr seems to be accurate in providing me matches, research says it utilizes geo-targeting that means it uses your real-time position and location in the map."

    "I have a thing for older gay men, I feel like they are mature enough to handle relationships and for me, age is just a state of mind. It is never about the age but about the maturity level instead. I thank this app for it especially offers guys older than 40s and that's great for me :)"

    "I am not willing to spend that much for a dating app. Honestly, I think the cost is a bit higher than other but i think it pays off sometimes. What i dont like abt this app is that the approval takes time and it made me pissed the first time i registered."

    "This is actually my first time encountering this app, I am a lesbian and i find this app useful. It has become a community more than a dating site for me. I have met my running buddies from here--they even travelled to my town just to meet me. This app is for every lgbt member out there!"

    "First, this app is free but top up purchases are needed to get the most out of it.. Second, it is not exclusive for gay members. Yes, there are some gay users but not all so if you like a bigger selection for gay men, try to look for apps that feature purely gay members. "
