When it comes to the link between romance and your phone, a lot of people seem to agree that, in this modern age, there is a big connection. More and more people are meeting online, thanks to the creation and evolution of new social apps.
Once upon a time, you had to physically be near someone to meet them; now, you can meet someone that you may have otherwise never crossed paths with, but the power of social media brought you together. If you are a single person and looking for love, here are some of the best apps for finding just that, all with the power of your phone.
This app is the originator of “stories” and disappearing messages, which has since been ripped off by Facebook and Instagram. This app not only allows you to send creative messages back and forth with users of your choice but you can also download the media and post it wherever you want.
The nice thing about disappearing messages and images is they opened up an opportunity for flirting without running the risk of an embarrassing, permanent text hanging over your head. The idea of it being only temporary before expiring gives users a different kind of freedom for flirtation. Make sure that you never snap while driving, however, since you may get into an accident.
Unlike Tinder, which could be seen as a more “hook-up” app with no emphasis on compatibility but almost entirely on looks, Ok Cupid offers users an opportunity to really put themselves out there with a profile which includes questionnaires, giving other users an inside look into your personality type.
Users can upload over 10 photos, unlike other dating apps, which is great when it comes to being able to present yourself accurately.
Because of its enormous popularity with millions of users on a daily basis, Instagram is becoming more and more popular as a way to meet other singles in your area. Unlike a dating app, Instagram is less pressure and you can really put yourself out there.
By clicking on hashtags, locations, and profiles which are of interest to you, you can open yourself up to the possibility of meeting someone who’s into the same things as you, as is potentially your soulmate.
You never know…love may just be one hashtag away!
Facebook is nice because you can see if you have likes and friends in common, which can be a great way to see if you click with someone. Additionally, Facebook has the option of saying whether you are in a relationship or not. This is handy when it comes to scoping out potential partners.
