Top 6 Dating Apps for Women

Swipe, scroll, tap, tap; welcome to the world of dating apps. Will you find your match or miss the catch? While it’s impossible to promise you a perfect match; read on to find your perfect app.

Are you looking for a tall hunky dude to just fool around with or a cute nerd to have a meaningful conversation over a drink or maybe food? Whatever you prefer, the buffet is laid. Choose wisely though, you need the right app to find the right man!

Here’s a list of best dating apps for 2019.

1. Tinder

Too good to be true? Swipe up. The guy seems nice? Swipe right. Wouldn’t even friend-zone? Swipe left. Swipe, swipe, swipe, match & chat; that’s how the tinder-world drifts. Tinder isn’t best, but it has one of the largest user bases, so it gives you a better chance of finding the one, or two ... or how many ever you are looking for. Talking about rules, tinder allows you to swipe right as much as you want. It matches you if both of you swiped right or swiped up. Then the texting game begins! Not a tinder fan? Scroll down for alternative dating apps to tinder.

2. Truly Madly

Truly Madly Crazy Deeply, this app is in love with account verification. Seriously, who uploads their documents on a dating app? Well, if you don’t mind their super strict account verification, it’s a safer and fake-proof version of Tinder. This app doesn’t allow anybody to download or even screenshot your images. So, if you don’t want random guys taking a screenshot of your photos or are tired of fake tinder profiles, this might just be the app for you.

3. Happn

Are you crushing over a guy in your neighbourhood? Well, if that’s your situation; stop staring and download happn! This app shows people you have crossed paths with. So, no more thinking ‘Ooo that guy at the bus stop was so hot,’ if he happens to be single and on happn; you might just get a shot. You never know, he may be crushing on you too.

4. Ok Cupid

Ok Cupid requires you to fill out some basic details to give you better matches, and then you can let the swipe game begin. While this app is like many other dating apps, it’s much more descriptive as it allows you to answer various questions and take a stand. Also, it is one of the most inclusive dating apps with 12 gender identities and 20 sexual identities to choose from.

5. Bumble

Bumble is pretty new in India. It gained popularity with its ‘equal, not loose’ ad featuring Priyanka Chopra. While many people now know about bumble, it doesn’t have much user base. Limited user base may not give you as many matches as you expect, however, its pro-feminist stand might keep you hooked. It allows you to make the first move, so you know you are in control. Also, they have a team who verifies each profile, so you don’t need to worry about fake and blurry profiles. So, will you give this newbie a try?

6. Hinge

You were matched to an almost perfect person. You texted for a while which made you want to meet-up. You guys made plans to meet & the date was perfect. You text him back to let him know you had a wonderful time. No reply for days or even months. Well, he didn’t die or suddenly get super busy. He ghosted you. As mean as it seems, it’s quite a common thing that happens to the best of us on dating apps. If that’s what you are afraid of, hinge is the app you’ve been waiting for. While we can’t say that people on Hinge don’t ghost, it has taken a very strong stand against ghosting.  It’s ‘your turn’ feature reminds your date to respond. It also allows you to hide a match to de-clutter your inbox so that you don’t forget to respond because of a messy inbox. Also, hinge only gives you a certain number of matches per day; this keeps the overwhelming number of texts at bay and prevents ghosting to some degree.


 The world of dating got a lot simpler and complicated at the same time with so many apps trying to find you your ‘perfect match.’ So, enjoy the dating life or get hooked up and live your life to the fullest. Also, tell us about your best and worst dating experience in the comments section.
