The Target of dating sites, it's one-stop shopping for every make and style of mate.It pulls your photo, job, age, and education from Facebook, offers space to write a brief biography, and allows you to match with people within a given distance.Ostensibly, this app is a way to match with people you're connected to through friends on social media. In the spirit of journalistic tenacity, I tried to start conversations with three people.
One person a friend tried to set me up with I also matched with on three different apps; the attempt was a failure across social networks, real and virtual.
I recently went out with someone I'd known for a couple of years, one of the few people who responded to me on Bumble.
Happn is the surveillance state of apps, letting you see who was or is within 250 meters of you, and when, where, and how often you've crossed paths.
(Thanks to Happn, I know, for example, that there is a cute veterinarian named Matt who lives somewhere near me.) On the app, you can secretly "like" or aggressively "charm" someone, or advertise your availability for a drink, a walk, or a movie.
That, combined with the fact that it doesn't use members' real names, may lend to the culture of carelessness on this site.
