You can swipe their picture to the left if you’re not interested, or to the right if you want to chat.
The interface is easy to work with, and the features are easily identifiable.
Unless someone has written out their autobiography in the “about” section, the whole getting-to-know-you thing is up to you.
Kik is all around less automatic than Tinder and Ok Cupid, because even though the app can import your contacts who also use Kik, you have to manually search for new users by their username.
The former is when you decide to get to know each other over the date itself.
I really wouldn't recommend this form of date with anyone as it could just be a recipe for disaster.
If you’re looking for a quick way to connect, maybe to meet some new friends or to finally have that one crazy Friday night with someone you just met, Tinder may be a download to consider.
If you want something that goes a little bit further, with a better foundation for actually getting to know someone, Ok Cupid is the better way to go.
When viewing a profile, Ok Cupid lists two percentages that estimate how much of a match or enemy the person may be, based on differing interests. It’s possible to have a short, boring conversation with someone who is a 75 percent match, and have an ongoing, energetic conversation with someone who is 75 percent enemy.
And not everyone loves spicy Indian/Thai/Moroccan/etc. And don't you dare make your way to a fast food joint. if you'd rather meet up at a bar/lounge or coffee joint, do pick a nice, slightly more up-market one.
I know it may seen crazy to pay (insert appropriate currency and gourmet coffee price) for a cup of coffee when you can make the same at home for under a dollar/pound/whatever.
Tinder only notifies you if you and another user have both swiped right on each other.
Tinder’s most prominent disadvantage is the minimal profile layout.
Remember that just because you find something utterly enjoyable doesn't mean your date will feel the same way. Even then, check to make sure if your date is okay with your choice of restaurant.
