    "Free is always worth a try! I was impressed with all the aspects of the app and the different types of people that are on here. Have used other free apps, which then charge you to connect with others. Not here though! I am already having conversations with some great people!"

    "I am new to the city I am in now. I moved here about 6 months ago and found it very difficult to meet people anywhere except at my job. I wanted to meet someone that I could do fun things with that would not overlap with my workplace. Tinder was fun and easy to use. I've meet some fun people!"

DID YOU KNOW

According to Sophie's article on 36 Interesting Facts, Tips and Statistics About Online Dating and Relationships, a 2010 study claims that 17% of married couples have met online. In this digital age, several tasks have become more convenient. For instance, because of the easy access to Internet services through the use of smartphones, a lot of things have also become less complicated such as having food delivered at your doorstep, chatting with friends anytime, taking photos whenever you want to, listening to any songs you like while relaxing in bed, and more. In fact, you can also meet random people without getting out of your own house. Since there are various resources for online dating, it is now easier to talk with anyone about anything. Online dating is considered as a growing trend, especially for teenagers and young adults who are either just bored or looking for potential partners. In addition, numerous apps allowing users to meet someone new for the purpose of dating, are available for download on Google Play Store and iOS's App Store. One of the most popular apps that offer this feature is Tinder. This app for Android and iOS users offers easy registration by simply using one's Facebook or phone number. This location-based application is an online dating tool that also lets users meet interesting people by simply swiping right.

    "This is a combination of match.com and linkedin.com. I would probably not use this website because I am married, but I can see how busy business professionals would find this more appealing than a traditional dating website. This focuses more on a business person so it probably makes better matches for those people."

    #8Bumble

    "I have tried many dating apps with limited success. I am always willing to try a new one and Bumble puts a new spin on online dating and scratched me right where I itch. Ladies always talk first on Bumble and that is fine by me. It's not just for dating though, it is for networking and friendship. I now have a network of friends and colleagues at my fingertips and have been dating a wonderful person for the last 4 months and it is great! They have the highest post match chat rate in the industry and it is working wonders for my sex life."

    "Great dating app, it's a bit like Tinder but not as skeevy or creepy. I found that the people you meet using it are a lot more open to simple conversation and getting to know each other rather than simply "hooking up". The interface is also very snappy and easy to use, and it's great for meeting people that live or are just passing by your area."

    "I wasn't a big fan of this book. I was looking for some kind of resource to help me out with dating, and I guess it kind of served that purpose, but I couldn't help but feel it was a little weird that I was reading a book by a man that was telling me about "how to be a woman". At times it felt like I was reading something written in the 1950s. It has mostly positive reviews, so I guess some people found it helpful, and it had some tips that sounded alright, but I couldn't get over my issues with it. I wish I could get my money back."

    "I posted my profile here last week, filling in as many details as I thought needed. Afterwards, I perused the men's profiles, and while I did see some I liked, none of them have replied to my requests. I think perhaps these profiles are not being maintained or they aren't online, or maybe I should wait longer. I did receive one unsolicited message from a man, but he is clearly not my type. There appears to be a lot of people, so the pond is quite large."

With this app, I've had the option to meet one new person each day (if I want) and they even helped me pick my best profile pictures. Another neat aspect is that they ensure privacy when chatting and offer a line solely for this purpose. So far I met one really cute girl and things are going well!"

If you think your members could benefit from our services please share. Specifically, how might we enter the review process that you may suggest our services, in the future? I give it 4 stars only because the site is in need of content, but the concept is great and could prove to be quite valuable.
