When you exit back to the list, there’s no guarantee that it’ll be in the same order or that it will return you to the spot you scrolled down to, making it extremely obnoxious to keep track of what you’ve already viewed.Worse, you can’t see who has liked you unless you pay for an upgrade. If you don’t reply, they’ll probably just keep on messaging you, too. Facebook verification helps block a percentage of bots and catfishers from creating accounts, and without it, Ok Cupid loses a level of reliability.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.Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps, too (hitting almost 50 million users back in late 2014), meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.
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.
If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
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 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).
