If you've been single within the last couple of years, I’m sure you’ve used a dating app or two (or ten), as well as online dating sites via your computer.
Hands down or fingers down, I should say — there are more benefits to using dating apps versus sites, I think.
And, personally, I’ve met more of my boyfriends on apps (I’m looking at you, Bumble, Happn, Tinder, and Hinge) than sites (Match, e Harmony, and Ok Cupid).
“Dating apps give you access,” Allison Gerrits, Matchmaker, Three Day Rule, tells Bustle. You can connect with people based on a wide variety of interests."Here’s why dating apps are better than dating sites.
You’ll also have something in common to talk about instantly when you’re first communicating, which is nice.”With apps, there are so many great ways to determine if a match seems right for you: the mutual friends you share, the music they like (if you’re on an app where you can display your music tastes or send each other songs), the few pictures they post (I mean, is it just me, or does Match allow people to post way too many?! “You can find people who have similar interests and people who are looking for the same thing.”You probably know that dating app profiles tend to be way shorter than online ones, so every word or picture really does count.
“In general, apps are usually a little more abbreviated because they’re meant to be used on smaller screens, where less is more,” says Masini.
Online dating has an even balance of advantages and disadvantages on the whole when compared with offline dating.“If you’re a swiper or a quick-choice dater, an app is more suitable than a dating website.”Gerrits agrees.“You have to develop a strong sense of self to paint an accurate and intriguing picture of your identity,” she says.“Because they’re so easy to use on phones, you can take them with you and use them all over the place.Your life can be a lot more flexible with these portable apps.
