First up, to log in, you need to have a Facebook account.
It banks on the Facebook verification process, which can be used to create a profile on Tinder as well.
Similarly, logging in with Linked In or with references only gives you a 15 per cent score.
However, looking at the popularity of these online dating websites in India, I decided to experience the ‘never before experienced’ arena myself.
So I plunged into the world of dating apps, swiping men I liked right and those I didn’t like to the left — most apps have the same operating mechanism.
The app works on a ‘Trust Score’ system, which lets people rate you on the basis of your interactions with them.
Keeping in mind the safety concerns, it also gives you an option to switch on your profile visibility only to people who you choose to talk to.
So, finally when you log in to the app, it will provide you with people based on proximity as well as number of mutual friends in your Facebook profiles.
You can view pictures, read about their hobbies, job description, age etc and choose ‘tick’ or ‘cross’ to accept or reject.
You can edit age range, height, state or city and the app will stick to your preferences by showing people from only that city or state and of that age, height that you choose.
The app is designed in such a way that you can only see the names of those you choose to select and for the rest, only ‘xxx’ appears instead of name.
Tinder therefore could not stay far behind in our list.
It isn’t entirely similar to Truly Madly as it gives you a number of settings through which you can date ‘differently’.
Truly Madly truly ensures that you have fun while chatting to people you have liked.
