Dating for young adults
But it’s the king of the dating hill for a reason and the first port-of-call for many daters.The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account, but you do have to be older than 18.You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.
The photos are large, the app is — comparatively speaking — svelte, and setting up your profile is pretty painless. Also, no one can message you unless you have also expressed an interest in them, which means you get no unsolicited messages.
If something goes wrong, it’s also easy to report or block accounts — though there are a limited number of blocks for free users, which is a serious turn-off. Free users only get to see 100 profiles in their area and are limited in other parts of the app too.
If you want to lift those limits, then there are two subscriptions you can take out.
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. If you don’t reply, they’ll probably just keep on messaging you too.
