Everything you should know about online dating apps

I am sure the topic we are going to touch now is very interesting. First of all, because you, my friend, are looking for your better half and dating is an inseparable part of every relationships. Secondly, I am sure, that you are looking for your one outside your country and in your case online dating can be of great help. That is why you must know about pros and cons of using such a service and I will help you get through this with pleasure.

To begin with, you must know that online dating industry is quite developed and consists of numerous dating sites and dating apps.

Dating sites are usually “services” provided by dating agencies. So, to use one you have to be the client of one of such agencies. You will have a profile opened and then you will be able to get in touch with ladies whose profiles you will find attractive. But… There is one HUGE “But”. You have to pay for every minute of your chat. Of course, some agencies make 2 or 3 first minutes of a chat free, but that is absolutely not enough to get to know a woman better. So, if you like someone, you will have to continue your chat, which will not be cheap for you. I am not saying that it is not worth it, however you can spend your money to reach your goal more wisely.

Dating apps are a good alternative to dating sites lead by dating agencies. They are free and you do not have to pay money for using them. What you have to do is open your profile, like in any social network and start communication. However, some of the apps demand that you should have a Facebook or some other social network account and there is also content for which you have to pay like “VIP” profile, which gives you extra options, but you are not obliged to use it. Having conducted a survey I have found the list of dating apps which are considered the best and most comfortable for online dating: Tinder, OkCupid, Coffee Meets Bagel, Hinge, Tastebuds, Match.com, Bumble.

As you can see, if you want to look for a lady in the world wide web, you have a lot of chances to do it. So, let us make a conclusion and systematize the pros of online dating:

  1. You do not have to leave your house to find a girl.
  2. You can date a woman from any part of the world sitting in front of your computer.
  3. You do not have to think of what to wear for an online date.
  4. You can choose among lots of profiles and date more than one woman at a time (no one will see it).


  1. Online dating can be quite expensive.
  2. Photos of the girls on the internet can be different from real life.
  3. Your cyber date will never give you a chance to take your lady by the hand, hug or kiss her.

You may think “What shall I do then? I really want to find a girlfriend in Ukraine (for example)”. To help you do this, I offer you to use the services of a matchmaking agency. Yes, you will have to leave your cosy apartment, go to the office of the agency, fill in the questionnaire, talk to nice staff and pay money. But… you will not have to spend lots of hours looking through thousands of profiles, thinking whether this or that woman will want to talk to you, trying to guess if she is serious about getting married, etc. Staff from the matchmaking agency will do it for you. They fill find the best matches for you and send you their photos and information about them. If you like the girls, you will get a chance to have a date with each of them, communicate in reality and either “get a sparkle” or continue your search.

So, it is up to you to decide whether you want to try luck and use “extreme” online dating, or be on the safe side, knowing that your matchmaker is doing her job and women, who you will communicate with are definitely looking for a life-partner, not just an online acquaintance for short communication.
