The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account in order to enable it, but you do have to be older than 18.Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
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.While there are a fair few people on Tinder who use it strictly to collect swipes, many people are actually inclined to meet up in real life, which is not always the case with dating apps.As successful as it is at forming long-distance relationships and successful marriages, Tinder has long been accused of changing dating into some form of hookup game.But it’s the king of the dating hill for a reason and the first port-of-call for many daters.But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.
Tinder actually has one of the best user interfaces of any dating app around.
Ok Cupid 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 create a username and fill out a very long profile, which you can link to your Instagram account if you choose (which is, admittedly, almost Facebook).
You can answer questions, giving both your answer and what you’d like your potential match’s answer to be.
There is no need to give up on love, as singles in their fifties meet online every day. Are you in the prime of your life, 50 years old or older?
