However, looking at the popularity of these online dating websites in India, I decided to experience the ‘never before experienced’ arena myself.
So I plunged into the world of dating apps, swiping men I liked right and those I didn’t like to the left — most apps have the same operating mechanism.
Worry not, if you do not want to disclose your location, for there’s Tinder Plus for that. It logged me out on several occasions where there was no net connectivity.
This is a problem for me because I use my smartphone to remain logged in to various social networking platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc and that is the whole purpose of a personalised phone, that you don’t need to log out every time you are not using a particular app.
It isn’t entirely similar to Truly Madly as it gives you a number of settings through which you can date ‘differently’.
First up, to log in, you need to have a Facebook account.
It banks on the Facebook verification process, which can be used to create a profile on Tinder as well.
The app works on a ‘Trust Score’ system, which lets people rate you on the basis of your interactions with them.
Keeping in mind the safety concerns, it also gives you an option to switch on your profile visibility only to people who you choose to talk to.
