Dating Apps: Tinder and Bumble's 'Ladies First' Feature

8 Online Dating Success Stories That Will Make You Believe in (Tinder) Love

"I was really surprised by how much the perception of Valentine's Day has shifted over time".

- Don't ask, "Hey, what are you looking for?" Coffee Meets Bagel has been positioned as a private and free online dating app "for singles looking for real relationships".

That's right, there's more than just Instagram direct messages. This sounds easy, yet anyone on dating apps will tell you it's apparently very hard.

Chances are, you've heard about Tinder. Whereas the feature is standard on Bumble, Tinder plans to give women the choice. If two users swipe right on each other's profile, the pair are matched and given the opportunity to talk. "Tinder" was launched in 2012 and has about 50 million users. Although it is typically referred to as a "hook up" app, it's certainly not that way by rule. According to the app's description, they "spark more than 26 million matches per day".

Grindr is very similar to Tinder, except it's created to specifically serve the gay male community. If you try to date someone whose schedule does not compliment yours, trying to schedule a date needs strategic planning.

Bumble applauded the move with a statement reading: "We applaud any company making business decisions that empower women". "So, the odds of that stranger you like actually being on Happn are not great", says a user who remains hopeful that the app will take off someday.

Uber Will Soon Force Drivers To Take Mandatory Breaks After Extended Shifts
Lyft has required drivers to take a six-hour break for every 14 hours spent in driver mode since January 2014. NHTSA describes drowsy driving as "a profound impairment that mimics alcohol-impaired driving in many ways".

In the wiggle room between the "your place or mine?" conversation starter and matrimonial sites' "your last name or mine?" game-enders - lie the millions of Indian millennials who may also like to discuss "your favourite film or mine" on their first dates - and our readers have pointed out just the right apps for most of these scenarios. The feature was created to ensure that matches actually lead to conversations.

Currently, Tinder allows either men or women to make the first move after a mutual match has been made.

Coffee Meets Bagel was developed in 2012 with the idea of meaningful relationships in mind and is arguably the app on this list most designed for relationships.

This app sends women about six curated matches or "bagels" every day at noon. Men can either like or pass on the profiles.

Cons: It can be frustrating to get a match just for them to not message you and have it fizzle out, which is the case if a woman doesn't decide to message after a match. The app also has settings for the LGBTQ community.

Are we so far gone that we can't just ask one another if we're interested in having sex, or just feel out how the night is going?
