Who doesn’t want to have a date? At least I want it. I know you also want the same even if you don’t admit it in public. The people’s shyness to have dates was the real reason behind online dating apps. Have you ever done online dating? You will never feel the obvious embarrassment one faces during the actual dating if you choose to go with the online method.
So tell me, are you ready for an online date?
Popular Dating Apps like Tinder | Tinder Alternatives
Yeah! Whenever I heard about online dating, the first name that pops out of my mind is Tinder. Being one of the pioneers in this field, Tinder has shown a new level of interaction.
But why are you searching for an alternative? Why shouldn’t you use Tinder itself?
Well, there are multiple reasons for it. The first one would be the introduction of Tinder Plus version. The app used to be free of charges. But Tinder’s new subscription-based service made the free version limited. Moreover, Tinder does matchmaking based on the appearance not according to the personalities.
One may hate Tinder for other reasons too. But the above mentioned two are the remarkable issues I found out.

Are you ready to dig into the list of best hookup apps like Tinder? Here you go!
OkCupid is the perfect choice for those who are in search of mobile dating apps like Tinder.
Though this app has a premium version, it can satisfy you with the free version as well. For the starters in online dating, OkCupid’s free version is more than enough.
At the startup, you need to enter a bunch of details about you that leads to getting you the perfect matches. OkCupid is not just another app like Tinder with less sensible matchmaking.
With more than a decade’s experience, the guys behind the app know exactly what they do. The incognito mode and advanced filter feature will excite you, I swear.
The swiping feature notifies the other person that you are into them. The app is available for both Android and iOS as well.

The second item in this list of apps just like Tinder is Skout. It offers two types of interfaces; one with the swipe feature (similar to Tinder) and the next with a grid layout to see the profiles quickly.
In case you are looking for an app to meet people in real life, you are going to thank me later because Skout is built exactly for that.
You can get to know who checked you and hit the favorite button as well. These features allow you to have a set of options to hit on.
The app is available for iOS and Android in both free and paid version. Going with the premium plan eliminate ads and improves your visibility.

Happn is yet another dating app like Tinder for Android and iOS. Unlike all the other apps of its kind, Happn stays unique as it shows the people with whom you shared the same location. This doesn’t mean it shows people from the same area. But they show more of profiles of people who crossed their path with you at least once.
Once a person likes you, and you like him/ her back. You both can start conversing. In case you are carving out for the attention of a particular user, you can send them Charm. But it needs some credit which can be bought or earned via referrals.

4. Hot or Not
Being started ten years ago, Hot or Not hasn’t lost its charm yet. Truth be told, Tinder took inspiration from this app, and you will find greater resemblances here.
Though this one works as a location-based service, it allows you to send messages to any user. And, you can check your popularity in your region by analyzing the number of likes.
The app is completely free to use. But you have to pay a few dimes to send special stickers and gifts. The only thing that bothers me on this app like Tinder for dating is it needs us to link the Facebook account during the sign-up.

5. Plenty of Fish (POF Free Dating App)
I know I got your attention by the name itself. As PoF is one of the favorite alternative apps to Tinder, you can find a lot of people in it.
The app has a bunch of cool features like chat heads, VoIP calls and sorting (new users, online users, etc.). So, you will never get bored of using the service.
The advanced matchmaking algorithm of PoF makes sure you get the right one. You can see your matches for free and send messages to anybody with no strings attached.
The interesting fact is this app is owned by Match Groups who also has Tinder, Match and a few similar apps under their banner.

The biggest problem that guys face when using online dating apps like Tinder is the lack of response. Even after the matchmaking, women stay silent.
You will not face this issue with Bumble as it requires the female counterpart to initiate the conversation. Or else, the match would be canceled within 24 hours. I think it’s a pretty good move.
The swiping features are present here too, exactly similar to Tinder. While testing both the Android and iOS versions, I found out the latter to be more innovative. Don’t worry! They are continuously working on it to bring the app to perfection.

7. Coffee Meets Baggle
CMB is one of the best Tinder alternatives which you can give a try to. It’s quite similar to Tinder but it does not allows you to choose from Random persons. Instead of this, they brings you one match (or Baggle :P) each day which has quite similar interests with you.
Best part which we liked about this app is that the Baggle (or Match) which this app chooses for you will be having mutual friends with you. So, you can easily ask from those mutual friend before going ahead in relationship. Moreover, when any bagels like you back, you can know more about him/her by asking her questions.
Coffee meets Baggle is a free app but still there are some in-app purchases like Woo feature (similar to the Superlike feature).

Lovoo is a kind of paid alternative Tinder app. Similar to Tinder, it also allows you to swipe between different matches using which you can easily send them Chat request or directly like them. The reason which we listed it in last of this list is that it is reported to us by one of our reader that it has many fake profiles too.
Lovoo is one the best Tinder alternatives and offers all features of Tinder and offers some unique features too like Invisible Mode or Unlimited Chat requests but you have to pay for these services.

You have got a list of six best apps for online dating like Tinder. Each of the apps has its own advantages and limitations as well.
One must examine the features carefully to determine whether what suits him/ her the best. Looking at the features of these six, I can clearly rule out Hot or Not because I don’t want to connect my FB account. Moreover, I want to exclude apps that need location access on a mandatory basis too.
It is possible for you to eliminate one by one carefully according to the features and requirements as well. Finally, you will end up getting the one and only perfect dating app like Tinder.
