CMB functions a little differently than Tinder: You get only one match — called a "bagel" — a day, every day at noon (it sends you a push notification to let you know when it's ready).Then you can either "accept" or "pass" on this person; if you both accept, then a chat line opens up and stays active for a week.The magnetic pull of dating app addiction seems to have sucked unsuspecting Millennials in faster than you can say "let's hook up." When you live in a huge metropolitan area like LA, Chicago, or NYC, it might seem that, despite being surrounded by people, it's impossible to actually meet someone that you could see yourself dating.Enter: the vast array of online dating options, including Tinder, which might be one of the best dating apps and is definitely the most popular.
Then, like Tinder, you can "like" someone which opens up the option to chat.
Plus, reading typo-ridden messages and profiles is half the fun of Ok Cupid, so you can do that to kill time on the subway, even if the more serious "soulmate search" isn't your cup of tea.
Though all that can be rather time-consuming and is surely not for the everyman who just wants to hookup with someone new every weekend, Ok C has other options as well.
Tinder's founders bragged to us about the number of female users when it launched last October, and though they didn't have fresh numbers, the app has received a lot of vocal approval from women online, including female tech writer Jenna Wortham, who says "there’s something about Tinder’s simple, flirty interface that is undeniably fun." This acceptance might have something to do with the fact that unlike every other hook-up app out there, which were birthed by men, as Ann Friedman notes in So far hook-up apps haven't catered to women because they lack certain protections that the XX-demographic likes when meeting potential sexual partners, argues Friedman: "women want authenticity, privacy, a more controlled environment, and a quick path to a safe, easy offline meeting." Perhaps because of its single female voice, Tinder offers a lot of those things mostly by way of Facebook.
The app syncs up with the social network in a "cleverly discreet" way, as Wortham puts it.
