How To Find the Right Dating App For You

As the world speeds up to keep pace with technology trends, constant travel, and ever-changing communication styles, so does the dating scene. People are going out less, which means they aren’t meeting people organically as often anymore. For people who are too busy, too shy, or just prefer something different, dating apps offer a convenient solution. But how do you choose which one to invest time and money into? If you’re interested in finding the right dating app for you, here are five different things to look at when making your decision.

Type of Relationship 

One of the first things you should consider before you even look at all the different datings apps on the market is what type of experience you are looking for. What exactly are you looking for in your dating life? It’s important and responsible to think about what you want out of the dating app. Are you looking for a casual dating experience like Tinder can offer? Or maybe you’re trying to settle down for good and find a life-long soul mate. No matter what your goal is, there is a dating app that can help you.

OurTime is an online dating website geared toward singles over the age of 50, who are looking for all types of relationships. Whether you want marriage, travel buddies, or even just someone to chat with, you can find it on OurTime. It’s perfect for the mature person looking for a companion, whether that be a travel partner or something more serious. This easy-to-use app is perfect for you if you’re ready to meet people at a similar time in their lives as you. With their 14-day free trial, you can even test it out before you commit.

If you know exactly what you’re looking for, choosing a dating app can be easier. Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps used today, and it’s mostly used for casual dating and hookups. Other well-known apps like Match and eHarmony are great for finding long-term, serious relationships. Because of this, you’re also avoiding people on other dating apps that might want to string you along or hurt you.

Once you’ve figured out what you’re looking to get out of the online dating experience, it becomes a lot easier to narrow down your options. Next, you should consider if you want a completely free app or if you’re willing to pay for a subscription.

Did you know...

  • After her role as First Lady came to an end, Jackie Kennedy went into the publishing business. She became an associate editor at Doubleday and worked mostly on autobiographies. In fact, she was one of two original editors for Michael Jackson's 2009 autobiography Moonwalk, a #1 New York Times bestseller.
  • Jennifer Aniston's star-defining role on friends started a hair craze in the 90s that even lasted into the early 2000s. Called "The Rachel," Aniston's shoulder-length haircut had grown-out bangs and highlights styled to perfection. A hairdresser in Detroit noted that at the peak of its popularity, 40% of her business was devoted to recreating "The Rachel." Too bad that it was notoriously difficult to maintain on your own at home.
  • In February 2020, Jeff Bezos bought the most expensive property in California: a $165 million mansion. It was designed for Jack Warner (the former president of Warner Bros. entertainment company). It took a decade to construct (spanning the 1930s and 40s). It comes complete with 9 acres of Beverly Hills land, a main house, a guest house, a tennis court, a golf course, and terraces.
  • Paris Hilton not only lives in a mansion, she also built a doghouse mansion for her Chihuahua. It's 300 square feet and includes air conditioning and heating. It comes decked out with designer furniture, a chandelier, a pink paint job, second-floor balcony, and enclosed "yard." It's not enough for you to live in luxury. Your dog must, as well.
  • While attending the Grammys in February 2000, Jennifer Lopez stepped out in a green Versace dress that instantly became a phenomenon. The barely-there ensemble had a dramatically low cut that came below JLo’s belly button. It became such a talking point that it was Google’s most popular search query up to that point, and it spurred the company to include images into search results. It became the motivation for Google Images.
