Skout is actually the largest dating app in the world, though, like Jaumo, it’s not as big in the U. Skout encourages its users to contact people who don’t live near them and wants you to check in when you go to public events so you can run into other Skout users.
Surge, especially, markets itself as more of a quick hook-up app than a place to make a lasting connection.
If you want to get married in the next year, for instance, you really shouldn’t be looking for your eternal Netflix partner on Seed.
We’re not saying you shouldn’t have an account — swiping right and left is always going to be fun, and there’s something exciting about an app with over 50 million users — but still, you might also want to look elsewhere.
The second most popular app for straight people, Mingle, uses video profiles, so it’s easy to draw a conclusion there.
Mingle is free as well, and it adds a group chat function — remember AIM singles chatrooms? Mingle takes a chatroom, adds in Chatroulette, and puts the whole thing on your phone. A few other good options are Jaumo, Moko or Skout than Tinder.
Many dating apps allow people to search for partners based on gender identification, but HER is the premier app for women seeking other women (or anyone who isn’t a cis-man).
