Created by the co-founder of Tinder, Bumble gives women the upper hand

Getting a mutual ‘like’ gives you 24 hours to initiate conversation before the connection disappears – it’s all about seizing the moment.

It isn’t big enough in Singapore. After a brief session of swiping left, I had completely run out of people to ogle. Even after three days, the app couldn’t find anyone for me – not even recycled users. And as for how Bumble compares to its nymphomaniac sibling Tinder, the kind of quotes that were in the profiles of my potential matches were like outtakes from 9GAG. So, not that different.

Talent pool Lots of expats and local boys who studied overseas. Almost all the photos were of them at the beach or in sportswear – basically, any situation where they didn’t have to wear a shirt. Pictures also featured a lot of lion cubs and elephant-riding – the animals-attract-girls strategy is a lot more endangered than the fuzzy golden retriever here. I also encountered a guy or two I knew had girlfriends – that’s a turn-off, people.

Grindr

A dating app for gay, bi, trans, and queer people, Grindr is the perfect online gateway for the LGBTQ community to socialise and connect. This geo-social networking app https://hookupdate.net/es/college-dating-es/ uses your phone’s location to pick up fellow Grindr males in your area. It’s safe space for those looking to come out of the closet, meet like-minded people and navigate through the queer world.

Despite being a lot quieter than most of the other apps, I’m giving Happn kudos for having more better-looking users (I’m not always that superficial, just sayin’). Read more
