Skout dating review
I feel like I’ve wasted hours of my life swiping and my thumb hurts.
COFFEE MEETS BAGEL | Slow-paced for the busy; higher quality matches You get ONE match per day at noon based on your Facebook circle, preferences, and location.
PROS: There are a lot more nice-looking, educated, have-their-sh*t-together men on Bumble than Tinder (percentage-wise).
People here seemed more thoughtful in their picture choices (less pictures of just landscape and shirtless selfies).
CONS: I didn’t always get responses (which can be a change for girls) and there are less users than Tinder.
If your style is to click rather than swipe (options available in Tinder), it may take some getting used to.
Questions include the slightly random and odd, “Do you believe in dinosaurs? If you are really bored or lonely and looking to chat with anyone and it doesn’t matter where they live, you will like this app. I don’t have enough Facebook friends to use Hinge, which bases matches on mutual friends and uses timing to push dates: giving you 24 hours to send the first message and 14 days to chat before expiring.
I also felt—and this was confirmed by other users I talked to—that there were super nice looking, eligible bachelors for the first 25 profiles/few days, and it seemed to taper off quickly.
We also found that we rarely matched with these men. Then you will be shown your compatibility rating as you browse profiles. CONS: I had so many people I wouldn’t have matched in any other app messaging me with “hey girl/sexy/beautiful/gorgeous” and messages riddled with spelling and grammar errors.
It is estimated there are 50 million Tinder users around the world, which makes for a big pool—or ocean—to fish in. Upload some decent pictures, write something slightly witty, and it can easily happen.
PROS: You will get the most action here in the immediate and quantitative sense. I got the opportunity to meet people I wouldn’t otherwise have had the chance to meet, which really, is the biggest draw for online dating.
