From Beards to Vegans, There’s a Dating App for You
With millions of daters using mobile dating apps and thousands to pick from, how do you know which site is best for you?
In a recent interview on 7 On Your Side: Can You Find Love Through an App on ABC TV’s KGO in San Francisco, we talked about a few dating apps to help you find love this year.
From Happn to Bristlr, Wingman to Salad Match, there are mobile apps outside of Tinder for you to swipe right and left on.
Watch the full interview on ABC 7.
In this interview, one Bay Area couple using Happn, while riding on the BART train, were notified they were in the same proximity. The couple connected and is a mobile dating success story.
If it wasn’t for the Happn app, they would have never met, ever. Now the couple has been together for six months.
Happn is one of the thousands of dating apps in iOs and Google Play that help you find a match.
Dating author Julie Spira says some apps are off the charts. Sizzl connects only singles who love bacon and you can decide what pork type you’re really interested in.
“There’s this sort of mystique and magical feel about connecting to someone who has a similar lifestyle to you.”
Other apps mentioned include Twindog, which matches dogs and their owners, and Wingman, which connects airline passengers who will be traveling on the same flight. Salad Match sets up salad lovers for a salad lunch. And then there’s Bristlr, where you can basically rub faces with someone who has a beard, if that’s your fancy.
