Regardless of all the technological advances happening every day, there hasn’t been much evolution in the dating world to date. You have to meet new people, talk to them, and then maybe the two of you start dating if you see the sparks between both of you. There are certain dating apps, which come in handy during this entire process. However, we did conduct stringent research only to find out that dating apps need some significant improvement even today. The applications still do not have any proper flagship products, which are too good to be true. We tried some ourselves, and to tell you the truth, our experience with most of them was outright frustrating. However, there were some, which did stand out and seemed usable.
You can find some free dating apps, which are decent and do not cost you a lot of money. However, most of them are hugely expensive. Our job is to give you a bit of a heads up so you know where to put your heart, time, and money. So, let us get started and take a look at these apps one by one.
Price – Free with some in-app purchases
Natasha, an educator who works with EduWorldUSA, says that she has been using Bumble for quite some time, and it is one of her favorite dating apps. It is truly one app that helps you shake things up. The best (and maybe the worst too) thing about this app is in Bumble; women initiate the conversations first. So, the woman has around 24 hours to start a conversation, and then the man will have the following 24 hours to reciprocate her conversation. In the case of a gay couple, either of the two can go first. A lot of people see this as a way to keep creepy people at bay. But that means that things are a bit difficult for male users. With the app, you can see the possible matches, and it presents you with an opportunity to communicate with new people.
Even though Bumble does have its share of problems and is not the perfect app we know, it is still a lot better than the competitors. It is an excellent application for homosexual couples because they can enjoy a classic dating experience without any bells and whistles, points out Davis, an associate with FineGrades.
Price – Free, with some in-app purchases
Clover Dating is a relatively new dating mobile app. However, it is more than just your traditional dating application. You can search for the people like you in the app, and it sure will work out for you. Using Clover, you can set updates, find events, join mixers, and do so much more. The app has a free chat option, which is fantastic. Nathaniel, an educator who offers the best full stack developer course, says that he did not find a girlfriend on Clover, but he did make two good friends. Yes, that is an incredible thing about Clover; you can use it to make some friends too. So, if you are only seeking a platonic relationship, this app can come in handy. This app is hugely popular, and that is for a reason. On the app, you can find a good number of results in your area. One noteworthy thing about this app is that its reviews are more favorable than most other applications. However, the app has quite some problems with spambots. Thus, to use this app, you do need a bit of patience.
Coffee Meets Bagel
Price – Free, but comes with some in-app purchases
Another popular dating application available out there is Coffee Meets Bagel. Every day at noon, the app will prepare a curated list of all the women in the vicinity and send it to the men. Simultaneously women will also get this curated list. However, in the women’s list, those men will be prioritized who have shown interest in their provide. So, once you match, you will be given a private chat room that will enable you to get to know each other better. Janet, a teacher who helps students with accounting assignment help, says that she loves the app’s curated list feature. Another notable feature of the app is that it is also LGBTQ friendly. The entire process of finding a match on the app is comfortable and clean. It is perfect for people who lead a busy life. So, yes, no more flicking through the profiles to find your match. However, the app does have some problems, but all of them are tolerable. To get access to more features and get better visibility, you can shop for some in-app purchases.

Eventbrite is not the dating app, per se. However, it is still an excellent platform for dating. Eventbrite is one of the best ways to see new people, go out, and enjoy new things, says Nancy, who works with TAE. This is one that is full of things that you can do in your area. The app lets you look for conventions, sporting events, concerts, and so many other things. You can go to these events and meet and communicate with new people, and then go on a formal date with them. However, two pieces of advice do not be a creep on the date, and please do not go to any event with the sole expectation of finding true love. Dating apps do have a ceiling for folks, but social gatherings do not. So, nonetheless, it deserves a try.
