Recently launched in Hong Kong, DateTix is the first time-based dating platform that’s designed to engage people in real life. It allows you to host a date by picking a time and a restaurant on the app and wait for the most suitable ladies to apply. You can chat with each of them before deciding who you want to share the table (and maybe your bed) with, and then get to enjoy their company over a meal.
Coffee Meets Bagel
If going through endless profiles is too time-consuming for you, Coffee Meets Bagel delivers one perfect match to you per day based on your age, education level, religion, interests and preferences. When your “bagel” arrives at noon, you can take it, reject it or even give it to your friend as a treat. If there’s a mutual like, the app will connect you with the match via a personal chat line that will last for seven days. Think quality over quantity!
Can’t rid your mind of the hottie that you locked eyes with this morning? Chances are, you can find her on Happn and continue the unfinished story. Using a GPS tracking system, the app presents you a list of lovelies in your proximity, showing their photos, names, ages and the times that you two crossed paths. Send your crush a heart and if the feeling is mutual, you can move forward with your agenda. Since she needs to be within a distance of 250m, instant hookup seems pretty feasible.
There are studies saying that music tastes can accurately reflect a person’s thinking style and personality, so let Tastebuds help you find like-minded matches based on your favourite tunes. Add your favourite bands to your profile or let the app scan your iTunes library or Sportify (remember to hide your guilty pleasures) to find ladies who share the same musical preferences. If you both “like” each other, you can start messaging her or sending her your favourite songs to break the ice.
Tired of making the first move? Here comes the first women-in-charge dating app, Bumble, which offers a Tinder-esque swiping mechanism that only allows women to take the initiative to start a conversation. To lift the stakes, you’re only granted 24 hours to get the girl out on a date before the conversation connection ceases. Think of it as a chance to tap into your feminine side.
There are actually a lot of open-minded ladies who don’t mind to share their beds, or their “friends”; you just need a way to track them down. Thanks to 3nder, gents full of beans can now set up threesomes, foursomes, or more (if you can handle it) by making a few swipes on their smartphones. Not only can you use a fake name, the app’s considerate Incognito Mode also makes sure your judgey, nosy Facebook friends will never find out about your late night adventures. You can also sign up as a couple if your relationship needs some extra…spark.
