Dating apps are growing exponentially year by year. There’s a whole new bumper crop of new dating apps exploding online lately, so let’s go take a look to see what’s new in virtual dating.
Tastebuds. This app matches people according to their passions and interests. So, if you’re looking for a fellow Deadhead, a flea-market fanatic, or someone that digs chillin’ with lil Wayne streaming on YouTube, this one’s for you.
Coffee Meets Bagel. Imagine the riffs on this name, not to mention the corny jokes. But whatever, people are flocking to this app, among the new dating apps out there. The draw is the app uses your Facebook friends list. With mutual friends in common, what better way to get the conversation going?
Score. If information-overload on other new dating apps has you running for the hills, try Score, the low-fat version. Yes, you’ll answer some questions but short-and-sweet ones, like the kind you’d ask on a first date while having a microbrew at your favorite watering hole.
Zepeel. We saved the ace of the new dating apps for last. Zepeel stands head and shoulders above the crowd. Once past the registration process, new members can produce a can’t-stop-watching 30-second video. Simultaneously, you can start cruising other member video profiles. Find one you like? Touch the plus button to message your interest. Being plused back means you’re connected now!
With Zepeel’s multi-layered video features, from video profile to video messaging to video chat, Zepeel is the next best thing to having a real date.
Safest Dating Apps Caution About Sharing, Bad Behavior, and Use of Information
Zepeel. Not surprisingly, Zepeel tops the list of safest dating apps. They operate a robust backend security module and review all reported content and users and remove content and suspend users where necessary. Among the many safety policies they operate the website with, the shortlist includes:
No harassment of any kind
No junk mail or spamming
No illegal activities
No inappropriate content and nudity
No abusive, maligning, degrading, threatening or slanderous behavior.
Zepeel is explicitly dedicated to making your video dating experience as safe and secure as possible.
Bumble. Bumble came about due to its founder’s experience of sexual harassment on a dating app. After a whopping settlement she launched Bumble, one of the safest dating apps around. Bumble puts the reins of control smack-dab into women’s hands. They initiate contact with men within a 24-hour window. Men can widen this widow for another 24-hour period.
Bumble cautions all users to consider the types of information they post, particularly emails, cell numbers, addresses, complete names, and other personal info, which could compromise their online security.
Badoo. Badoo offers options to disclose as much or as little information from social media sites such as Google Plus and alike. Members can also exercise control over what push alerts they receive on their cells. Lifestyle habits are also their choice to share or not, and they can manage these preferences in settings.
Badoo cautions not to exploit other members’ information for financial gain, or spam, stalk, or threaten any member. Any violation subjects the violator to termination of their account.
OkCupid. Once registered and logged-in users are directed to an About Me section, which poses questions on quirky topics like are you a slob or a neat-nik? Searching and meeting others is anonymous, which makes this app one of the safest dating apps. OkCupid warns certain information you share like an email can backfire with unwanted messages sent to you. So, proceed with caution.
