Online dating sites free philippines action
Smartphones have changed the dating game immensely in the last few years.
Now, choosing your potential mate (or one-night stand) is just a matter of swiping on your phone.
This feels so much like Friendster when it comes to viewing profiles.
You always see who checks you out every single time, and the free version has no real privacy settings so basically anyone can ogle you whenever they please.
They’ll be using pseudonyms for the sake of human decency.
Tinder’s strongest point is the fact that you can only talk to someone if you’ve mutually liked each other.
Because, you know, I don’t want to come off as desperate...apart from the fact that I’m on OKCupid to begin with.
On the plus side, though, I love how detailed people’s profiles are.
Like, “Please stop looking at me.” At the same time, I have to ration the times I check out profiles, too.
This app highlights your compatibility with a person so you can better judge if they’d be a good match but, honestly, answering the unending questions was more fun for me than browsing through the choices.
Also, why wasn’t I ever compatible with any of the cute ones? It’s also kind of a downer being able to compare how many people visited your profile and how many you matched with. The interface is a mess; it’s just a crowded checkerboard of tiny faces. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do when I open the app and their little Shake feature is basically just asking for some sleazebag from the other side of the world permission to send you photos of himself topless. And it’s such a gyp because the interface is actually really nice! For someone who loves talking about herself, I got sick and tired of talking about myself.
And it’s actually not that tedious to fill in your own profile, thanks to the Tinder-like yes-or-no swiping game (e.g. Swipe right for yes, and left for no.”) Unlike Tinder, it’s easier to get a gauge of what kind of person you’re checking out.
Then again, Tinder’s originally just for hookups so I can’t blame it too much for being that, uh, minimal.
The second I signed up I was bombarded with come-ons in really bad English. But after all the effort and built-up excitement it turns out that the app is basically pointless unless you pay up.
