No matter how much social advertising calls for replacing online communication with the real one, the digital age dictates its own terms. People work through the Internet, shop through the Internet, study, communicate, and of course, get acquainted more often on the web. But online dating involves certain risks, and the image created in the mind of the interlocutor rarely coincides with the appearance and behavior of a real person. The only way to reduce the probability of disappointment is to meet people in the right mobile apps.
The Difference for iPhone and Android Users
Popular dating sites create mobile versions for the following operating systems:
The most difficult choice is faced by Android users where the number of applications for online dating has exceeded several hundred. The audience of iPhone apps differs from the audience of Android: there are more serious men and Ukrainian women who are interested not only in conversations but in real relationships.
Types of Dating apps
- If you want to find someone who is geographically close to your location, you can use the geolocation feature built into some mobile dating sites. It helps to hasten the meeting: after all, how can you avoid a date if an interesting person is just a couple of blocks away?
- Services with built-in video chats create the effect of a live conversation. This hastens the dating process. It is easier to know whether to continue communicating when you see a person and talk to her, rather than when you exchange written messages with a stranger on the other side of the city (or the world).
- Anonymous dating sites and their mobile versions are a separate category of services. Here, each person without registration can find an interlocutor. This segment is fraught with the most surprises: you can never know exactly who writes the answers to messages: a guy or a girl, young or old, what intentions he or she has. This is a great place for easy flirting or friendly chit-chat. People with communication deficits can use such sites to practice their communication skills, increase their self-esteem, and broaden their horizons.
- For those who don’t want to build relationships and only need a sexual partner, special applications for intimate dating have been created. Here come people for whom the first priority is to get pleasure. You can ask the other person directly about their preferences in this field and get a direct answer.
Paid vs Free Apps
Modern users often face the question of where it is better to get acquainted — on paid or free services. If you want to help fate find you, then you need to choose which audience you want to communicate with. Are serious, financially independent interlocutors without vested interest preferred? Then you should choose the appropriate option where you will have to pay for using the service.
