A 30-Day Trial Of The World’s Most Popular Dating Apps


The ever-growing number of dating apps makes choosing an app most suited to you extremely difficult, so why not try them all?

This recent Mashable article recounts one man’s 30-day quest to find love on an array of dating platforms.

Written by JP Mangalindan, the post describes his experience of using 13 of the world’s most popular dating apps, pointing out the good and the bad in each of the platforms.

Mangalindan, a 32-year-old gay man living in San Francisco, trials apps including Grindr, Once and New York-based app Coffee Meets Bagel, with the hopes of finding “a meaningful connection that could eventually develop into a committed longterm relationship”.

After going of several dates, Mangalindan concludes that his favourite app was The League – an app that approves users based on their education and employment history.

Describing the overall experience, he said: “Instead of helping me find love, these apps turned me into a compulsive serial dater more focused on swiping through packs of people on Tinder, checking out guys on Grindr and messaging “just a few more guys” on OKCupid.”
