We are living in a modern world where technology is the way for all kinds of communications. In this era, a way to mix and mingle with new people has become both a challenge and liberation for those seeking stimulation and basic human needs. Dating apps have completely attracted people's understanding of "connect now." And with the rise of more and more apps, these social dating platforms are here to stay, paving the way for more complex or challenge-seeking individuals.
The problem is that with dating apps, all things come with it, meaning you do have the control over choosing who to connect with and who to respond to or meet in person. However, the pressure is there, feeling less motivated to be proud as a single person and more content by being in relationships. One of the challenges of dating apps is if a man or woman is looking to just hook up for the night, or on occasion, serious suitors may be left behind. Another challenge may be for actual serious people who do want to take relationships to the next level, yet they meet someone who wants nothing more than just a sexual encounter.
Exploring Popular Dating Apps
Let's browse through the dating app categories and get more acquainted with each service, style, and appeal of some of the most popular apps. I want to break down four apps: Hinge, Grindr, Bumble, and Tinder. First, let's discuss the app Grindr. This app is exclusively excellent for people who are looking for LGBT friendly community of people. I am Asexual and hoping they, if not already, have a specific sexual orientation or explanation of choice to put up as a sexual orientation on the app. We are all unique people looking to grow and evolve; why not find someone in your community who is similar yet different from you?
The second dating app we will discuss is Hinge. Hinge is for people who take friendships and relationships seriously. To grow with a companion and experience something deeper where both parties decide to meet, connect, stay together and delete the app for good. The Hinge app was created to help you find a long-lasting relationship, not for a casual hookup or one-night stand.
The third dating app for discussion is Bumble. This app is also centered around developing and building relationships and caters to women. Bumble works by letting the woman make the first move, giving her the power to choose who she prefers, is attracted to and feels comfortable getting to know better. Rarely do people join or meet others for hookups on this dating app.
The fourth dating app listed in this category of dating apps is Tinder. On the popular dating app Tinder, account users swipe left or right to quickly sift through who they find attractive. Whenever two users swipe right at each other, a match is created, giving them access to start chatting and getting to know each other better.
Creating an Honest Bio & Dating App Profile
When creating an eye-catching bio, it is important to be interesting, but above all, stick to words and concepts that express who you are. Physical appeal isn't enough to have a person continue a conversation with you. Be honest on your profile about things you want in a partner and your sexual orientation. No one wants to meet a person who doesn't even remember the false hobby or interests that are written on their page. The last thing you need is to be remembered as a fake person on an app who most likely will not get a second date. Overall be authentic, respect yourself, and focus on what you like and not necessarily on habits you don't like. No one likes a person telling them what to do or how to behave. We are all adults here.
Choosing a Profile Picture
A great profile image that will catch the attention of a potential partner is essential. Good lighting is key! A profile photo showing your smile or background of your hobbies or pets is really nice for attracting a like-minded partner. Focus on your great features and be yourself in your photo. I know it may sound silly, but truth be told, people see one another through a photograph. Pictures say a thousand words.
Ice-Breakers for Hitting Things Off
When the first conversation starts, it is always best to ask a person how they are doing. You can ask a question or remark on something interesting you saw in their profile photo or a word/phrase written on the profile. This conversation starter opens the door to first impressions and shows the other person you're genuinely interested in getting to know them. Keep the conversations respectful and engaging, and allow the conversation to continue about your interests. There is no need to focus on past relationships or why they are single - that conversation will come up for discussion at another time. Always stay kind and respectful. Above all, respect yourself and use kind words when talking about yourself. Expressing your self-love is sexy!
Connect with a Love and Dating Psychic
I would suggest connecting with a Psychic Reader regarding connection on love, romance, and meeting people online. Sometimes an additional tip or confirmation will help you in a situation you are currently experiencing through chatting with others on dating apps. Please listen to your intuition above all else. Your body will literally tell you if it is comfortable around a person or not. Perhaps you have not yet downloaded any dating apps and want to speak to a Psychic Advisor to find out if these apps are for you. I wish you and your love life nothing but the absolute best!!!
