All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.

To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.

That chat room expires after eight days, regardless of whether you’ve talked with your bagel or not.

While there are a fair few people on Tinder who use it strictly to collect swipes, many people are actually inclined to meet up in real life, which is not always the case with dating apps.

Tinder is possibly the most popular dating app, too, meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.

You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.

It might work on a dating website where that much information would presumably be read on a larger screen, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access.

Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.

The service also offers more specific preference options, meaning you can narrow your choices to certain religious beliefs or ethnicities, if those things are important to you.

You create a username and fill out a very long profile, which you can link to your Instagram account if you choose (which is, admittedly, almost Facebook).

You then have 24 hours to decide whether you want to “like” or “pass” on your bagel.

If you like your bagel and they have also liked you, you’ll connect, meaning that you’ll be able to message one another in a private chat.

Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.
