Most Popular Dating Apps

If you want to meet a ton of people

App with the best success: Tinder

Maybe you just got out of a relationship. Maybe you want to find the one by meeting every single “one” you can. Whatever your motivation, if you want to meet as many matches as possible, swipe right on Tinder.

The OG dating app has a massive pool of users to swipe through. The company told WomensHealthMag.com via email that there are 1.6 billion swipes every day. Every day! Of all those swipes, 26 million matches are made every day and 1.5 million end in Tinder dates each week. Basically, you’ll have no shortage of potential partners—whether for an LTR or just for the night—to swipe right.

If you want someone else to do the hard work

App with the best success: Coffee Meets Bagel

If the idea of endless matches is overwhelming, you might find greater success with a more curated set of potential suitors. In that case, Coffee Meets Bagel will do some of the work for you.

Here’s how it works: Guys are given 21 potential Bagels (a.k.a. matches) per day, and given the option to “like” or “pass.” From there, CMB curate the four best potential suitors for you, based on men who have already expressed interest (the number four was chosen after the company surveyed women on their ideal amount of daily matches).

With this method, CMB helps you cut the requests for nudes and chances for ghosting by showing you only a few quality matches you’d actually want to grab coffee with IRL.

If you’re really damn picky


App with the best success: Bumble

According to stats released by Bumble, women on the app average eight matches a month (a month!), which is basically nothing compared to Tinder or even Coffee Meets Bagel. So if you fall into the picky AF category, or the “I don’t have time for this” category, the original ladies-choice dating app is probably the one for you.

Bumble told WomensHealthMag.com that according to their data, womens’ choices on the app have led to over 20,000 weddings and engagements in the three years since the company launched. That’s right, #WomenGetShitDone.

If you want to take it slow

The League

App with the best success: The League

TBH, the idea of meeting a stranger from the internet still kind of freaks you out. What if they’re a serial killer? Or worse, a fan of Arie Luyendyk Jr.? If you’d prefer to spend some time chatting before connecting IRL, The League is the place to have a real conversation.

The app surveyed former users who’d been in relationships for at least a year and found that League members who eventually got together exchanged an average of 34 messages on the app before exchanging phone numbers. Time to brush up on your witty repartee.

If you’re non-binary or gender fluid


App with the best success: OkCupid

Mainstream dating apps can be challenging for the LGBTQIA community. How the hell to you explain your gender fluidity or non-binary orientation to an algorithm?

If you’re non-cisgender, OkCupid has the spectrum of gender and orientation covered—they were the first dating app to offer non-binary gender options for your dating profile. Today, they have 22 different gender options and 13 sexual orientations to choose from.

If you want a serious relationship—guaranteed


App with the best success: Match

Raise your hand if you have tendonitis from all of the swiping and just want to find someone to snuggle with on a romantic couples’ getaway. If that’s your goal, Match doesn’t mess around. Because they take your dating app success super seriously, the app has a six-month guarantee package—if you don’t find an S.O. in that time frame, they’ll give you another six months free.

If you hope a wedding announcement is in your future


App with the best success: OkCupid

While it’s hard to track exactly how many marriages come from each app (let’s be real, you’re probably not inviting the developers to your reception), OkCupid matches are more likely to end with a wedding announcement in the New York Times.

Data shows that OkCupid was three times more likely to be mentioned in the NYT wedding announcements than any other dating app. Looks like cupid really does know what he’s doing.
