Download now from: i Tunes Google Play Ok Cupid is one of the few dating apps that doesn’t require Facebook to sign up.
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.
Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.
The fact that the chat room expires after a week puts some pressure on you to exchange phone numbers or meet up in real life, or to just quietly fade away without any fuss.That chat room expires after eight days, regardless of whether you’ve talked with your bagel or not.You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if any).Discovery settings allow other users to find you, if desired, and set a few preferences regarding who you see. You can also choose to swipe right (to like them), left (to pass), or up if you want use one of your precious “super likes” to show them you really like them.
