The dating culture in India has evolved over the years. From meeting slyly in your local haunts to searching incessantly on dating apps, we have come a long way. With the ever-increasing number of people being open about their relationships and sexualties, there has been a tremendous growth in the Indian dating app industry. There are hundreds of dating apps on the market but only some are worth your time. Let us explore the best dating apps of 2023.
This app was launched in 2010 and has become quite popular since then. What sets this app apart is that it requires the user to answer a set of questions and determines your personality type from your answers. It then uses this data to match you with compatible people. Thus it goes beyond the superficial process of just judging by the domain picture and helps you to actually find a meaningful relationship. But in case you are looking for a quick hookup, that too can happen through OkCupid. It is available on both iOS and Android.
TrulyMadly is another app like OkCupid but it focuses more on maintaining the security and privacy of its users. Its incognito mode helps the user to chat with only those people whom he or she has liked. This allows you to avoid creepy messages from random people. It also has the feature of TrustScore which one can increase by verifying their mobile number, Facebook ID and email ID. Thus it ensures that you are not catfished on the platform. It also offers a paid version with some additional features like compatibility quizzes, no ads etc.
Bumble is one of the most popular apps on the market even though it was just launched a few years ago. It is an app not just for dating but also for friendships. One can date, socialise or network through Bumble’s user-friendly interface. What sets this app apart is that once two people are matched, only the women can start the conversation thus breaking the stereotype of men approaching first and also saving women from creepy messages. For same-sex matches however, any of the match can start the conversation. Thus this is one of the best and most inclusive apps in India.
No list of dating apps can ever be complete without Tinder in it. It is the most popular and one of the best dating apps out there. Its user interface is simple and works on the mechanism of swipes. The free version gives you limited swipes but the paid version is much more advanced and interactive. It is commonly used as a hookup app and rarely used as an app for a serious relationship.
Aisle is an app for people who are looking for a really serious relationship. It connects Indians from around the globe. The best thing about this app is that it employs a really tough screening process thus one can be sure that your match is a real person and not a bot. It matches you based on your likes and preferences and thus is an app worth downloading.
Woo is one of those elite and niche apps on the Indian market. It is exclusively for well educated Indians and in order to make a profile one has to go through a routine of tough tests and questions. It has unique features like voice introduction, quick search and direct messaging.
GoGaga is an app which works in a completely different way than others. This app is based on the principle of a common friend introducing two people. On this app, a match occurs when two people are introduced to each other by a friend. Thus there is no need for you to talk to complete strangers and can easily rely on your friend’s good judgement.
While the dating apps are many, only a handful of them are actually worth downloading. These apps may help you find your soulmate or look for new friends. Thus, pick up your phone and start exploring, who knows, maybe the one you are meant to be with is just a click away.
