Match was the most successful for long-term relationships, by a good jump. Thirty-eight percent of users had had a relationship that lasted more than a month and, even more impressively, 33 percent reported having relationships that lasted longer than six months, reports The Daily Dot. Does one in three have a relationship that lasts longer than six months? Definitely the best odds I've ever heard. Faithful old man, Tinder, made the list at number four.
Only 13 percent said they had made it through the first four weeks. I know there's definitely a hook-up culture around Tinder, but I would have thought the number was higher considering we're only talking about people who have spent at least a month with a single person outside of Tinder. That's not to say it doesn't happen (I've been with my girlfriend for seven months, one of my other friends is marrying a guy from Tinder this year), but there does seem to be evidence that if you're looking for a long-term relationship, some places are better than others. With more than 26 million matches per day and an astonishing success rate, Tinder can help you explore limitless options.
In addition, its unique Tinder Passport feature that comes with its Plus and Gold memberships allows users to meet new people even across borders. In an attempt to correct one of the common complaints of dating apps, women should message first with Bumble, so the party who usually gets spammed will only be in conversation with someone they actually want to get to know. It's one of the first dating apps to truly hold daters accountable for their ability to move on. I mean, there's no point in joining a hookup app with a sky-high success rate if you're looking for marriage, and there's no point in joining the best Christian dating site in the world if you're an avowed atheist and culturally Jewish.
While most dating sites attract serious and casual daters, some options generate more success for long-term relationships. Many of these online dating apps focus so much energy on catering to millennials that they don't take the time to consider older daters. Many dating sites have optional apps that you can download to mobile devices, but since they started out as websites or are designed primarily for use on computers, they are still dating sites, not dating apps. They can also comment on it, which makes starting a conversation much more interesting than on other dating apps.
Big cities tend to have long waiting lists, so you might find yourself playing with your thumbs while your application to be one of the elite singles on the app is being reviewed. If you're looking for serious dating with no caveats for anything that falls into a “niche”, or you want the widest possible dating pool and feel that more specific sites don't offer that, then there are some sites geared towards serious dating that have high success rates. Whether you're looking for a casual hookup, potential date, friendship or an LTR (long term relationship), Tinder has you covered. The app uses your geolocation and sends the sexual version of an Uber request, although the small user base can make your searches suggest the same people.
Bumble: great option for women Bumble is unusual among dating apps as it allows women to initiate communication. This hella millennial app is a sex-positive, 18+ safe space that features pretty cool art, the model of the truly modern hook-up app. But where to start? There are plenty of good dating websites and apps out there, whether you're looking to meet new people, try casual dating, find others with similar interests or finally find your ideal partner for a long-term relationship. Unless a catfish is willing to go out of their way to snag someone, they're not going to be overlooked on these dating apps.
