While it can be used for either purpose, it’s probably the best app for finding a short term, casual relationship.
Tinder is fast, fun and kind of addicting, which is why it seems more like a “hot or not” game than a site for true love connections.Facebook profile photos of nearby singles appear randomly; users respond with an easy “like” or “nope” with the swipe of their fingers.You’d consider dating someone a friend recommends, right?Coffee Meets Bagel does the same thing, only it does it once every day.Each day you get a "bagel", someone CMB believes would be great for you to date.
You have 24 hours to say yes or no, and if both of you say yes, you’re able to chat with each other.Here’s how it works; you sign in, and create a profile that’s basically just a selfie, and after that your mission is to find someone near you who wants to hookup.Each post you make is like a shoutout about you, and it lasts one hour; users near you will see your selfie, and if they’re interested you’ll be sent a notification and you can set up a meeting time if you like them back. Not everyone is into casual sex, and if you’re the type to date people long-term, I’d recommend downloading Coffee Meets Bagel.The true intentions (“trints”), which can range from “let’s talk” to “coffee” to “romance” to “hookup,” aren’t revealed unless there is a successful match.But singles can leave a hint if they’re feeling brave.If you want a serious relationship and prefer to date people you may already kind of know, give CMB a try. Tinder, the dating app that doesn’t really get the whole "dating" part quite right.
