And this approach kind of makes sense too: you’re more likely to have something in common with somebody at a similar gig, pub or night venue than you are with a complete stranger you just happened across during a 10 minute swipe-break at work.
By some counts dating apps are the most popular downloads among the 20s crowd –– even more popular than games and messaging apps.
When people think of dating apps, their first thought is probably of Tinder, specifically because the app first found traction with college-aged kids.
But there are other popular dating apps that are up and coming, such as Happn as well as tried and true dating apps like OKCupid, and premium services like E-Harmony. Despite the “hookup” reputation Tinder has there is no denying it's a brilliantly simple app.
One in ten are going out with another person, whilst three in ten are supposedly so committed that they have stood up in front of their friends and taken vows,” reports The Daily Mail.
“Even so, they have signed up to the dating app, which allows people to scan for other users nearby, and decide whether they like the look of them based on their photographs.” Happn does things a little differently than both Tinder and OKCupid, however, and is all about proximity.
And if you’re zipping through London on the overground, Happn will pick up any people whose flat is within 250 meter of the train tracks–not really “crossing paths” eh? The service has existed in website form since 2004, before coming out with its app about five years ago.Happn uses your phone’s GPS location to search within a 250 meter radius of where you are and will show you other Happn users in the same area.It doesn’t show you profiles of anyone you haven’t crossed paths with.Happn has a better mode of matching people than Tinder.
The idea behind Happn is that it shows you people with similar interests who you’ve “crossed paths” with in the real world.Yes mobile apps and online dating have, like it or not, changed the way we date.For better or worse - it's still open to debate, and the answer may be a bit of both really.The mobile age has brought us many innovations and changes, some great, some questionable, and none more signficant than those which seems to signficantly alter elements of our culture.
