Dating apps are part of today’s dating world whether you like it or not.Dating in today’s time and age can be difficult contrary to popular belief due to the convenience social media has created for us to stay connected.This is due to the fact that it is hard to physically ask someone out when even when out and about people are always on their phones. It can also be extremely nerve-wracking to go up to a group of people and ask the girl or guy you have your eye on for a date, for all you know they might also already be in a relationship.You might come off as creepy or overly desperate and nobody really wants that. Furthermore, it is also difficult to tell a person’s sexual orientation upon first glance which serves more of a disincentive to ask someone that has spark your interest out. On top of that, there is also the issue of most people don’t even get the opportunity to meet people outside your social circle. This is due to the fact that people are so caught up with school, university or even work to find time to go out of their way to get to know potential dates that might not even work out. Therefore, instead of looking at social media with a negative point of view, we should then used this convenience that it has to offer to our advantage. The way to do that is by thanking and using the multiple variety of dating applications that we have to our disposal! Here are 5 top dating apps that you are bound to find a potential date on.
This is the most basic and well-known dating app of our time currently in Malaysia. Almost everyone is on Tinder despite still being in high school or just having one through a divorce. It can argumentably be said that Tinder has the largest audience out of all the dating apps. This could be advantageous as there is more of a possibility you will find someone that you can actually click with. The success of Tinder can be due to its simplicity where you swipe right if you are interested in the person and swipe left if you are not. The people that Tinder chooses to show you is also location based therefore if you were to like someone and decide to go out on a date, it does not have to be too out of your way.
Muslima is a dating app which is targeted to people who want to date with the guidelines of the Muslim culture. This application helps set people up who are serious to start a committed relationship as well as having the same Islamic principals about dating. This dating app is especially popular in Malaysia as half the population abides to the dating principles of Islam considering the fact that Islam is the official religion of Malaysia. This app is however not restricted to people only in Malaysia but also open to people internationally if they are interested. This dating application however does provide a fee if you want unrestricted communication with the matches that you get but looking around for potential dates still remains free!
Similarly to Tinder, Badoo is a dating app to be considered if you are willing to just casually date. It’s main features are free making it one of Malaysia’s popular dating apps which is a plus point as you have a bigger pool of people to date from. Much alike to Tinder, you can also swipe left and right to indicate interest to the people on the application. If interest is mutual you can then start exchanging messages and start getting to know your potential boyfriend or girlfriend.
4. Coffee Meets Bagel
This is another significant dating app among the vast number of dating applications available in Malaysia. They have made their algorithm such that the matches that you obtain are mostly based out of the people that you have showed interest in before as well as the contacts of your friends. This application also gives you the option to filter out people before they decide to send you a message and what differentiates this application from Tinder and Badoo is that it emphasizes a little bit more on personality rather than just looks. You are also led to know more about the person you are matching with as their profile would display information such as height, weight, location or even education level. However you cannot just randomly match with as many people you like on this application as there is a rather low limit of people you can match with within a day.
Grindr is currently the biggest dating app for bisexual, homosexual and queer people. Grindr creates a safe environment for people from the LGBTQ+ community to socialise and find potential partners. This application demolishes the awkward sexual orientation conversation as this would be listed on the application. The people on the application are frequently looking for something casual but I’m sure some people on the application are also down for something serious. Grindr has perfected the art of allowing their users to find the perfect guy they are looking for without too much hassle!
In conclusion, if you are looking to put yourself in the dating scene and are too busy to go out and actively pursue, then these online dating apps are definitely the choice for you. However, if dating is not the hobby for you, you could spend your time blogging on your own personal website. Instead of sharing your thoughts and opinions to a significant other, why not share it with the world?
