Coffee Meets Bagel is the flip side of a coin to Tinder

Just as satisfying as the combination of a bagel and coffee sounds, this app is a treat to have. Rather than liking and disliking profiles, it provides new matches every day with whom you can converse.

Coffee Meets Bagel is more for those looking for a serious relationship because it is slow-paced and not as great for finding casual hookups. It limits the number of “bagels” to five a day for the user to demote the usual swipe and chat later norm of other dating apps.

Coffee Meets Bagel eliminates the usual swiping though not getting rid of the option to pass on a match. This app preaches simplicity and may not have a great ton of features, but this also means that it is not overwhelming and the few features it has are wonderfully exceptional.

The paid version of this app provides extra perks such as getting more profiles to like and chat to every day and can be a bit costly.

You know nothing goes wrong when an app has such a fun name. So be assured of finding your significant other on Coffee Meets Bagel. Available on IOS and Android.

Facebook Dating

Facebook also has an online dating feature. Currently limited to 20 countries, Facebook Dating works by creating a separate account based on your Facebook and does not include your friends or posts from your original Facebook account. Meaning, you do not have to worry about your account being publicly shown.

The integration of Facebook Dating to Facebook is one of its selling factors of it. You do not need a separate app anymore if you use Facebook Dating.

You can even add your new friends to the secret crush section where if they add you to the same it would make a match. Now you can know if they like you back too and ease your way to building your relationship rather than starting from scratch.


Grindr is like Tinder for the LGBTQ+ community. All online dating apps long to become as great as Grindr when it comes to supporting the LGBTQ+ community.

Grindr is a basic app where you can go ahead with just a name and a blank profile and find people to meet up with.

Within minutes you can find a match and go ahead meeting up with them. You no longer have to wonder if the other individual’s sexuality, as heading to Grindr allows you to skip this hassle.

Grindr XTRA is a paid feature and very similar to Tinder Gold. It enhances your search and allows you to find matches more quickly. Although, this does not limit your matches or affect the experience of the hookup app by itself.

There is an app like Grindr known as Zoe which is targeted toward lesbian and queer women. The app is available on IOS App Store and Android Google Play Store.


Without a matching algorithm, Badoo is like a social media app but for dating. With over 465 million users it is one of the most used socialized dating apps to meet new people with real-time matches and coordination. It is under the same company that made Bumble.

You can add your pictures and videos and build up your profile. Many of its features are restricted till you upload a selfie of yourself.

It also censors explicit content automatically reducing any of the unwanted bad experiences you can have on an online dating app. It’s available on IOS and Android

Badoo also has a cool feature to add a picture of a celebrity and find a look-alike so that you can date someone similar to your celebrity crush. Badoo is for people with specific interests.
