I am an avid dating app user, there I said it. I like having full control of how others perceive me; I can give as much or as little away as I want on my profile and of course, display my best pictures. It has also given me the confidence to start conversations. I would never do that in person, the fear of rejection is real! If you get rejected online, you can delete the message and pretend it never happened!
According to the Digital Market Outlook, there is expected to be 5.8 million users using Online dating by 2023.
I know what you’re thinking, that is A LOT of people! At times the industry leaders; tinder, badoo, and bumble can be very overwhelming — swiping and scrolling for hours on end. You think you’ve found a good one, to open their profile to find out they are a cat person! Not ideal for dog lovers.
With the new breed of niche dating apps, finding the ‘ideal candidate’ is now a whole lot easier… If you want to date a pet lover, somebody who shares your religion or just looking for a one night stand there is a dating app for your every need!
