Most dating apps are fairly LGBTQ inclusive. Still, it's nice to have an app to call your own. Her is tailored to lesbian, bisexual and queer women. The app serves a valuable purpose, but generally has some bugs and glitches that made it frustrating for me to use. Most of my queer female friends have told me they found the app to be just OK, but they usually end up back on Tinder or Bumble. Still I checked it regularly for some time and had a few pleasant conversations with actual human beings. And isn't that all we're really looking for in a dating app?
While the app itself is free, you do need to pay a small fee to cover your drinks at the bar the app chooses for you. The app also ensures the proper gender ratio for great chemistry and no hurt feelings. Whether you’re looking to meet somebody to hook up with, hoping to meet “the one,” or just looking to meet new people and have fun, this app has got you covered.
But if they are not interested in your request then there are much fish in water try for another one. One thing here to look is if you have only handful friends on your Facebook then maybe this app is not a good option for you. However, if you have enough amount of friends connected with you on Facebook then go ahead. So if you want to spend some good time with friends then download it now, it is free and easy to use. Available for iPhone and Android users.
Many of the applications provide personality tests for matching or use algorithms to match users.[7] These factors enhance the possibility of users getting matched with a compatible candidate. Users are in control; they are provided with many options so there are enough matches that fit their particular type. Users can simply choose to not match the candidates that they know they are not interested in. Narrowing down options is easy. Once users think they are interested, they are able to chat and get to know the potential candidate. This type of communication saves the time, money, and risk users would not avoid if they were dating the traditional way.[8] Online dating offers convenience; people want dating to work around their schedules. Online dating can also increase self-confidence; even if users get rejected, they know there are hundreds of other candidates that will want to match with them so they can simply move on to the next option.[9] In fact, 60% of U.S. adults agree that online dating is a good way to meet people and 66% say they have gone on a real date with someone they met through an application. Today, 5% of married Americans or Americans in serious relationships said they met their significant other online[4]
One of the first free dating apps on the scene, Zoosk is integrated with Facebook and Google+, which makes it even easier to sign up and start searching for your match. Not only does Zoosk have a free app for iPhone and Android, but it also has a free Facebook-specific app, allowing you to choose which one works best for your needs. From a technology and price perspective, Zoosk is on top of its game, so you definitely won’t regret downloading it.
The good: Among the first and most widely used dating apps on the market, Tinder is quite adamant about its goal of fostering genuine human connections versus one-night stands. But, I mean, c’mon. Everyone knows Tinder is very, very casual in its approach to dating. Plus, everybody’s on it. Tinder gives you a huge range of local options, which means choices are endless if you live in a larger city.
You can not send any P**n content to the user, it’s strictly prohibited. You get meaningful relationships on Bumble. If you break any of their rules like hate speech and adult content then you’ll be banned in no time. App if free to join and use with premium membership which provides Bumble booster and Bumble coins which help you grow your profile.
It doesn't cater just for the LGBTQI+ community, but OKCupid is an inclusive app with many non-binary profile options (you can choose from 13 orientations and 22 gender identities). It's also not afraid to get political: users can get badges that show support for organizations like Planned Parenthood or the ACLU. For some singles, this is a drawcard, while for others it may feel like it's breaking the politics and dating taboo.10
2. Blendr: With the simple philosophy of ‘Chat, Flirt, and Date’, Blendr has received a lot of attention in the last few months. It asks to be linked to your Facebook profile and has a lot of single men and women up for some wholesome fun. This is also one of the best free dating apps and the more info you add to your profile, the more info you receive in return. Arguably it is one of the best hookup apps ever developed for our generation.

“And it’s just like, waking up in beds, I don’t even remember getting there, and having to get drunk to have a conversation with this person because we both know why we’re there but we have to go through these motions to get out of it. That’s a personal struggle, I guess, but online dating makes it happen that much more. Whereas I would just be sitting at home and playing guitar, now it’s ba-ding”—he makes the chirpy alert sound of a Tinder match—“and … ” He pauses, as if disgusted. “ … I’m fucking.”

Now hold on there a minute. “Short-term mating strategies” seem to work for plenty of women too; some don’t want to be in committed relationships, either, particularly those in their 20s who are focusing on their education and launching careers. Alex the Wall Streeter is overly optimistic when he assumes that every woman he sleeps with would “turn the tables” and date him seriously if she could. And yet, his assumption may be a sign of the more “sinister” thing he references, the big fish swimming underneath the ice: “For young women the problem in navigating sexuality and relationships is still gender inequality,” says Elizabeth Armstrong, a professor of sociology at the University of Michigan who specializes in sexuality and gender. “Young women complain that young men still have the power to decide when something is going to be serious and when something is not—they can go, ‘She’s girlfriend material, she’s hookup material.’ … There is still a pervasive double standard. We need to puzzle out why women have made more strides in the public arena than in the private arena.”
Some of you may have never heard of Badoo, but it is one of the world’s most popular dating apps with over 400 million users. It is different to Tinder in the fact that users don’t swipe through profiles. Rather, they upload a photo of a celebrity or someone else that’s their type and the profile works its magic to help try to find potential matches that are their taste. Although it is supposed to be more tailored to users personal preferences, they will have a smaller number of potential dates to choose from. It’s an interesting concept that you should try out.
Bumble’s UNIQUENESS lies in the fact that it is designed in such a way that only women are allowed to make the first move. But this app is also used for hooking up extensively and is for more than just romantic connections. It is available for free on iOS devices. It also has a BFF feature which helps you meet new people easily if you are in a new city or looking to expand your circle.

Wild is also dedicated to its members’ privacy.  After you creating an account and uploading a photo, the Wild app will display some recommended profiles based on your profiles as potential matches.  Tapping a heart indicates that you like the profile, or press an X to pass.  If you like someone and they like you back, a match is made and you can chat for free.
This app is also very simple to use similar to the other dating apps listed here. It will start by asking some questions related to you so that it can help in showcasing the correct profiles. It may ask you simple to answer questions like,  “Your Favorite Country”. If by chance, you don’t feel comfortable with any question, then you are free to skip it. But, let me remind you that uploading of a profile photo is a must.
The Match interface is also pretty sleek and minimalist, but it’s not as easy to use as, say, Tinder. It utilizes a set of tabs that run along the top of the display — i.e. “matches,” “search,” “viewed me,” and “mixer” — which break up the service’s various functions. It’s not an overly complicated app, but it does take a few minutes to get used to.
That being said,  services you pay for usually provide some extra user value to justify the price tag. There’s usually more advanced matching algorithms along with other bells and whistles, and because you must pay to use them, they tend to attract people who take online dating a little more seriously. Of course, many free sites have matching systems that work just as well as (if not better, in some cases) their paid competitors, and each dating website or app tends to have its own unique aspect that makes it stand out.
No additional information on Android devices compatibility, at the Google Store we can find “varies with device”. The app is compatible with iPhones and iPads with 9.0 iOS and up. This creates limitations for many users with 7.0 and 8.0. However, the app is officially available for Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows Phone 8, so no need to download third-party APK.

Why? I pretty much only use Hinge now. I have tried almost all of them: Tinder at one point in college, Bumble, OKCupid, Coffee Meets Bagel .... I found that Tinder was mainly for hook-ups and while I liked that guys were less grimy on Bumble, I’m pretty shy so I didn’t like that I had to be the one to initiate conversation. (Editor's Note: Women seeking men must message first on Bumble; for women seeking women, that rule goes away.) 

“I think a lot of people are still interested in having long-term, stable, deep connections to one or a few other people,” he says. “We as a species value intimacy and authenticity very highly. On the other hand, we are very attracted to novelty…. So people are going to go ahead and have sex with the people they’re attracted to, as they’ve always done, and it’s a good thing for everyone if that becomes accepted and not censured by church or state.”

The questions are pretty standard and are similar to what most other in-depth dating sites will ask. You'll give yourself a rating on prompts like "I'm an honest partner," with sliding scale responses. On paper, asking deep questions like these right off the bat makes total sense when pairing two people together — but they're so basic and annoying. As much as you'd like to lie to feel better about yourself, you know deep down that's not the way to a healthy relationship. Admitting that you're not as mature in a certain area is key to eharmony matching you with someone who complements you. SO DON'T LIE.
JDate is a very popular and tenured dating site for Jewish people. It is open to non-believers, but they do have to state if they are open to converting to Judaism or not. It’s a much more traditional user interface and idea, as it has been around since 1997. It’s similar to some of the above apps in that it will offer up several tailored suggestions per day, based on users interests. On top of that, singles may perform their own searches with many options. JDate has been the cornerstone of online Jewish dating for years now. Give it a go if you want to find a Jewish partner (and preferably you’re Jewish).

There are also cybersecurity, data privacy, and public health concerns about Tinder. Public health officials in Rhode Island and Utah have claimed that Tinder and similar apps are responsible for uptick of some STDs.[70] In February 2014, security researchers in New York found a flaw which made it possible to find users' precise locations for between 40 and 165 days. Tinder's spokesperson, Rosette Pambakian, said the issue was resolved within 48 hours. Tinder CEO Sean Rad said in a statement that shortly after being contacted, Tinder implemented specific measures to enhance location security and further obscure location data.[71]
Think more women should make the first move? Then you may enjoy Bumble, a dating app where women have to initiate. The functionality is similar to Tinder: you swipe, and if you both swipe right, a match is created. Where Bumble differs is that the woman then has to send the first message - if she doesn't do so within 24 hours, the match expires (in same-sex matches either person can initiate).5
You are much more likely to convince someone to meet with you IRL if you suggest meeting at a cafe or bar rather than at your house or hotel room. Even those who are interested in using Tinder for casual sex are unlikely to want to come straight to your bedroom for a variety of reasons including their own safety. Remember, you two are essentially still strangers even if you've had a lively conversation on Tinder, so take things slowly and be sensible. In short, meet in public.
Tinder is yet to raise any money outside of IAC, and in June 2014 Yagan told TechCrunch that “IAC has been, is, and always will be the majority owner of Tinder.” [5] But Tinder’s status as a company isn’t the only thing clouded in mystery. Mythology and facts conflict in the story of how the app was actually founded. Sources agree that the founders were originally working on Cardify—another customer loyalty app, also at Hatch Labs—when coder Joe Muñoz created an early version of Tinder during a weekend hackathon. As the team gradually shifted their focus from Cardify to the dating app they were calling Matchbox, they realized the name was too similar to IAC-owned Match.com. There’s disagreement as to who originally came up with the name Tinder. Former marketing executive (and, by some accounts, co-founder) Whitney Wolfe claims she offered “Tinder” up as a spin on Rad’s too-romantic suggestion of “Tender,” [6] while TechCrunch says their anonymous sources were uncertain, but listed Badeen, Muñoz, and Wolfe as possibilities. [7] Though many details regarding Tinder are fuzzy, the numbers are not. As of December 2014, Tinder had been downloaded more than 40 million times with users swiping 1 billion profiles every day. [28] So how is it that Tinder has grown so rapidly in such a short amount of time?
If Match is an inclusive, welcoming cocktail party full of people from all corners of the earth, then Tinder is the loud, crazy nightclub down the street that's primarily for 20- to 30-somethings looking for a bit of quick fun. Sure, older folks can hang out there too, but that's not who (or what) it's built for. The swipe left/swipe right function on profiles is intuitive and immediate; there's a reason basically everyone else adopted it. Tinder knows you're only here to make a quick snap judgment on photos, so scanning users and flicking them into the discard or keep pile is easy and addictive.
We know what you're thinking: "How TF am I gonna find a hookup on a relationship site?" Yes, we know Match isn't the raunchiest place, but it also has a massive user base (7.4 million paid users, to be exact) so even if you're not looking for a long-term relationship like many members, there's a pretty high chance you'll find a ton of users also looking for something risqué. (Like we said earlier — anything can be a hookup app if you want it to be, right?) 
Your opening line is crucial. Your matches are likely to have dozens of other potential prospects in their Tinder messages section, most of whom will be approaching with a tired, “Hey,” or, “How are you?” There’s no need to overcook it by opening the conversation with a sonnet, but it will work in your favor if you approach in a friendly, novel and interested way. Try asking an unusual question, like “If you won a million dollars today, what’s the first thing you’d do?” or compliment a particular detail in one of their photos (“That’s a really cute French bulldog! Is it yours?”)

Down is basically for those who are too chicken to say they are interested in someone they know. It works by allowing users the chance to swipe up (for dates) or down (to get down) on Facebook friends. So users already need to know the person you they swiping on. They are anonymous when they swipe, and they won’t be notified unless they swipe back. Users will see 10 new profiles a day to swipe on. It seems like quite a long shot that the girl you fancy from work will happen to be on this app, but also like you. But then again, there are 5 million singles using it. So give it a go if you’re intrigued! But beware; the reviews aren’t so complimentary when it comes to the 7-day free trial. Be aware that you will be charged after the trial is up!
Tinder’s website works the same way as the app, with the addition of a small button you can click that will immediately open a document titled Meeting Notes with a graph and a schedule. This document is, of course, fake. We imagine if you’re off task at work and browsing dating profiles instead of doing your job, you can open the fake notes if someone walks behind you.

This study, if I may say, is very beautiful. In arguing that no algorithm could ever predict the success of a relationship, the authors point out that the entire body of research on intimate relationships “suggests that there are inherent limits to how well the success of a relationship between two individuals can be predicted in advance of their awareness of each other.” That’s because, they write, the strongest predictors of whether a relationship will last come from “the way they respond to unpredictable and uncontrollable events that have not yet happened.” The chaos of life! It bends us all in strange ways! Hopefully toward each other — to kiss! (Forever!)
The EliteSingles approach: Our personality test is one of the most extensive out there, based on an algorithm implemented by psychologists and statisticians. This means that we’re able to accurately match you to singles that share not only your interests, but attributes of your personality too. We send our users seven compatible matches every single day to allow you to narrow your search; perfect for discerning professionals.

“Sites like OKCupid and Match.com have never been able to hack the rejection problem. They haven’t simplified the process much, either, still prompting users to fill out those long and antiquated dating surveys. The process is a drag. Rejection is disappointing. And the fact that you’re doing it anyway only plays into the lonely stereotype that the online dating industry has had such a tough time shrugging off.” [11]

OkCupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners. The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small. You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app. It works on a website, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access. When you exit back to the list, there’s no guarantee that it’ll be in the same order or that it will return you to the spot you scrolled down to, making it extremely hard to keep track of what you’ve already viewed.
