However, looking at the popularity of these online dating websites in India, I decided to experience the ‘never before experienced’ arena myself.
So I plunged into the world of dating apps, swiping men I liked right and those I didn’t like to the left — most apps have the same operating mechanism.
You can either log in with your Facebook profile or an e-mail id.
You are required to fill in a few mandatory fields such as your date of birth, height, state, city, occupation and highest educational qualification.
It even offers vivacious stickers to express things you might or might not be able to ‘describe in words’.
One needs to obviously create a profile on the app first.
Needless to say, they are different from social networking platforms because of the fact that they have been specifically designed for dating people.
It is unlikely that you missed the ‘boy browsing’ ad of Truly Madly on TV or the Woo ad that says ‘Find magic, Find love’. I used four top dating apps over a week and based on my experience, here’s what I have to say: Since you have already made up your mind to date online, why not do it the most ‘fun’ way.
The thought of online dating never occurred to me until I was asked to review apps in this category.
Call me old school, but the idea of meeting strangers online and discussing things with them just doesn’t click me.
Truly Madly truly ensures that you have fun while chatting to people you have liked.
I am saying this because the app offers a number of games like ‘Foodie Funda’, ‘Hocus Pocus’, ‘Styletastic’ etc.
Additionally, it also asks you to choose your hobbies (at least three) from a series of hashtags such as #Travel Buff, #Artsy, #Foodie or you can add your own.
The verification process may sound tedious, but there’s more to it. Truly Madly assigns percentage to different mediums you log in with.
