Whats so bad about online dating
The good thing about Tinder is that it has a ton of users.
The bad thing about Tinder is that it's so superficial (only showing photos of a person by default) that many times people just try to game the system by swiping right on everyone to get the most matches possible and then just start chatting to the ones they only really find attractive.
By putting women in charge, weirdo men (because there’s plenty on Tinder) are left pretty much powerless, which is always a good thing. An Android app is in the works, apparently, but we’ve yet to see any developments in recent months.

The idea behind Happn is that it shows you people with similar interests who you’ve “crossed paths” with in the real world.
Happn uses your phone’s GPS location to search within a 250 meter radius of where you are and will show you other Happn users in the same area.
You can contact someone without, truthfully, putting much effort into it.
And you can even completely falsify an entire identity to make you look more attractive or be more cool than you are without your interests being any the wiser (at least until you actually have to meet).
