With Huggle, there’s just as much focus on finding friends as dates, but whether anyone actually uses it for friendship, we’re not sure.
When signing up, you have to verify your profile in one of various ways, for example by sending a selfie mimicking a certain pose, which hopefully limits scammers too.
You’re asked to put in lots of details (including your height, which is rare) in order to create your “story” – for example, what you’re watching, what you spend most of your money on or how you’d describe yourself in three emoji.
You can pay money for premium features including Tinder Passport (the ability to swipe through matches elsewhere in the world, say, before a trip) and Rewind, for those times when you swipe left too hastily and immediately regret it. Bumble: Free Bumble is much like Tinder but with one key difference: only women can start the conversations after a match is made.It made a nice change to have lots of information about people including little quirky details.The app claims to learn your tastes too, although it seems rare to start conversations.I have enjoyed the site very much and I will do my best to inform my friends to sign up for it and hopefully they can find their perfect partner as well.Around one in four relationships start online now, and among the millennial generation, the number is likely to be even higher.
