Enter: the vast array of online dating options, including Tinder, which might be one of the best dating apps and is definitely the most popular.
While it's true (and great) that many women may already feel empowered enough to send the first message, Bumble is a fun Tinder alternative for girls who are on the shy side.Plus it's never a bad thing to remind women that they're in control of their own bodies, despite what many gross trolls would have them believe.Then, like Tinder, you can "like" someone which opens up the option to chat.So next time you're on the subway and are too scared to actually approach a Ryan Gosling lookalike, download Happn and pray to the Sex Gods that he has the app, too.It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the dating app possibilities, or by the prospect of dating in general, but if the blizzard that the East Coast just got hit with is any indication, people are out en masse in search of connection, and that is only more true as the temperatures drop.
In fact, winter storms and cold weather in general are the best time for dating, so now may be the time to jump into the fray.Like Tinder, your profile is built around your Facebook photos and interests, and then you can chat with someone once you've both "liked" each other, but the similarities end there.Hinge provides only a "select list" of matches rather than an endless amount, so the number of potential baes is more of a gentle stream than a roaring waterfall.(If you live in a less populated city, this may not hold true, but it still beats hanging out at the same dive bar hoping a sexy stranger will sweep you off your feet, right?)We've all been that person who's standing in the corner of the bar on a Friday night fiendishly swiping left and right — whether it's because we're bored, drunk, or lonely is irrelevant.If you're tired of simply swiping and want to procrastinate for hours by penning the world's wittiest dating profile and answering hundreds of match questions, Ok Cupid is perfect for you.
