Single Mom Life – 10 Free Online Dating Apps if You’re Single and Want to Mingle

Free online dating apps are already a fully established trend. But every year, they get new features. I for one have been on Tinder since leaving my ex of five years. And wouldn’t you know flirting is getting mobile now. With our busy lives and intolerance for wasting time, more and more of us are turning towards feeling people out before meeting up – so I’m here to share the top free apps you should try in 2016.

Free Online Dating Apps for You to Try Out

Tinder

Of all the free online dating apps, Tinder may be the most well known. It’s super easy to use, interactive, and fast, tinder connects you to the unlimited number of potential mates. Some call it a hookup app – however, it’s multifunctional. You need a Facebook account to run this service, so it gives you a lot of sufficient info about other users.

Bumble

Time for girls to make the first step: each female user gets prospective matches and has 24 hours to initiate a chat. After the message is sent, a guy also has 24 hours to respond. By the way, the service is LGBT-friendly. Just like many other apps, it pulls the info from Facebook.

Match

The online dating site Match.com is quite popular so they released the official mobile app. It’s smooth and features personalized selection of matches. Besides, you don’t have to sign up via your Facebook account.

Hinge

This is a free online dating app I have yet to try. But according to users, this highly intelligent app finds a date of your dreams via your Facebook connections. Check out friends of your friends – there’s probably someone amazing! Hinge recently added a new great feature: Story Cards. You answer “swipeable” questions so any user will know how much you two have in common.

OkCupid

This service does its best to link you to the best matches ever. Well, it takes some time to fill out a profile and pass a compatibility test. Eventually, the app shows your “match” and “enemy” percentage with each member. So you’re likely to have a glorious date! A winner among free online dating apps. Discover now.

The League

A wonderful solution for young and busy. The League is designed for professionals lacking time for bad dates so there are big chances to meet someone really compatible. The app gathers info from users’ Facebook and LinkedIn profiles and provides you with 5 potential matches every day.

Squad

In fact, this isn’t a usual dating app. Squad brings together groups of friends – take your buddies and search for several like-minded peers. Undoubtedly, this is a perfect idea to release pressure from your meetups.     

HowAboutWe

It brings dating to a new level: you can suggest a date idea to singles in your living area and immediately pick the right candidate. Just complete the sentence starting with “How about we…” – put whatever makes you happy and wait for an adventure to kick off.

Tastebuds

What if you find someone attractive, who completely shares your music tastes? Using this fun service, it’s real. When you’re signing up, you should answer some questions about your favourite artists, styles, and tracks. Thus, your profile signals about your preferences and perfect candidates can always get in touch you.

 Happn

If you have ever met someone interesting but your paths parted, Happn gives you an opportunity to reunite! This app is targeted at young city dwellers eager to meet a partner in their environment. It tells you when, where, and how many times you encountered each other.

It’s a new age kids. As a busy single mom I know what I want and I don’t have the time to be out prowling. I love free online dating apps and until I find Mr. Right, you can bet I’ll be using them.
