  1. Afghan Taliban have drawn international criticism for contradicting promises regarding girls education, restriction on media
  2. Findings have shown that women value "resource acquisition" while men look for “reproductive capacity” above all
  3. Most of the wealthy English-speaking world and the Middle East hate dating app Tinder
  4. Apps allow residents to put their orders for slaughter, have it delivered or even distributed to local charities
  5. Apple sends notices to indie developers to update apps within 30 days but then extends it to 90 days after protests
  6. Every app is a dating app if you’re Gaston! But did you know most people are NOT Gaston and actually hate it when you try to make a normal online conversation all about hookups? Maybe that’s why you should use one of the best hookup sites for better success in dating. The best way to find hookups without the drama is to join a dating community and put yourself out there. So why not use a dating app to improve your chances of finding a hookup? In this article, we’re going to list the hookup sites and apps that are most likely to find you the hot date you’ve been dreaming about. We based our recommendations on the honest reviews of users, overall site popularity, and the user-friendly experience. Let’s get started with some spoilers! Best Hookup Sites- Adult Friend Finder: Best place to find hookups - Ashley Madison: Easiest place to get laid - Seeking: Best for meeting attractive women - Reddit Dirty R4R: Best free hookup website - FriendFinder: Biggest membership - Searching for Singles: Easy sexting option - FetLife: Best BDSM hookup classifieds - Pure: Most discreet hookup app - Bumble: Best hookup app for women - Tinder: Best free hookup app for indiscriminate dudes 1. AdultFriendFinder - Best Overall Hookup Site Loveflutter.com Pros: - An adults-only social network interface - Free to join - Live video from members & pros - Customizable partner searches - Blogs and forums to help meet users - 80 million members - In business since 1996 Cons: - Higher than the average price AdultFriendFinder is the granddaddy of getting laid via the internet, dating back to 1996. But the hookup site has kept with the times, creating its own app, adding live video feeds to its content - and creating an adult-oriented social media community. The site is easy to use and all you have to do to find a hookup is to choose your tab of interests: who is online now, who is nearby geographic location, who’s posting new content, or even a filtered search. Filtered search combined multiple factors like verified members only, elite members, or even preferred race, age, and body type. AdultFriendFinder has always been fetish-friendly and LGBTQ-friendly. The only downside is the high monthly price, but it does help to weed out the users who aren’t “real” and ready to meet in real life. Plus, you can register for free, and check out some of the site’s basic features - like browsing other members. Overall, AdultFriendFinder.com is still the most popular site, with 80 million members, and impressive features such as live streaming. Features: - Search locally, worldwide, or by keywords - Watch professional or amateur live video - Chat about niches with forums and blogs - Add friends and enjoy an adult community Pricing: - $39.95 a month - $26.95 a month for 3 months - $19.95 a month for 12 months 2. AshleyMadison - Easiest Hookups Loveflutter.com Pros: - Anonymous & married dating - Mask filters for discretion - No mutual matching - quick chats - Free profile browsing Cons - Credit-based system is still pricey Ashley Madison has earned a reputation for “easy hookups.” They’ve been called the “cheating dating app”, and the one promising casual encounters without commitment, as well as the “go-to” site for unhappily married couples. It makes sense. Cheating husbands and wives have a lot to lose. They might feel safer in a community like AM, where everyone has something to lose and discretion means everything. Ashley Madison’s interface is surprisingly simple. You get to choose between your ISP-based location or you can search a city worldwide by name. With over 60 million members, the site is popular and has a large database of users standing by. Once you find a profile you like, you can check out public photos and read their vitals without cost. Ashley Madison’s free preview is what makes it one of the best casual dating sites on our list! But we do miss the fun community aspect of other adult hookup sites. There’s no video, no blogs, no niche chat, and no real group interaction. The site does have mask filters though, which is a nice touch. And while there are women on here (yes, real women!) the male-to-female ratio is wildly unbalanced. That means men will be waiting a while to chat with a legitimate “married woman” and they will have to wait in line until she decides all the other guys bore her. Keep in mind that in an ultra-competitive environment, most flirty women here pay attention to the most charming and wealthy of men. That means wealthy guys that enjoy the chase and aren’t on a budget will have the most success. Features: - Use virtual masks to hide photos - Search by geographic location or who’s nearby - Filter searches for better matches - Women chat for free Pricing: - Basic: 49 cents per credit (100 credits) - Classic: 30 cents per credit (500 credits) - Elite 25 cents per credit (1000 credits) 3. Seeking - Best Hookup Site for Finding the Hottest Partners Loveflutter.com Pros: - The highest female-to-male ratio site, 4-1 - Inclusive of all types of relationships - Meet famous people and “elites” - Very specific filter searches - Founded 2006 - Women join free Cons - Only for wealthy and successful men - Only for beautiful and young women - No community feel - Simple interface Seeking is not necessarily going to ban anyone who falls short of their “perfectly beautiful” or “extremely wealthy” standards. But let’s just say your profile will probably be laughed off, if not outright removed. This is a casual dating site made for people who know exactly what kind of relationship they want and are willing to pay for it. Hookups aren’t guaranteed but remain an option. But will a young and ambitious person consider it? Of course! The long-standing site makes browsing easy and you can even choose between “beautiful” or “successful.” You can also customize your arrangement, whether you’re married and looking, in an open relationship, or separated, as well as the usual single or divorced options. You can even choose tags to further filter your search, everything from trans friendly (or any other LGTBQ category) to passport ready, or flexible schedule. After creating your profile you can further filter your searches by ethnicity, and lifestyle choices. Overall, Seeking is the ideal matchmaker for someone with high confidence, that special kind of confidence that you’re usually born with! Features: - 4-1 female to male ratio - Filter your search for the ideal arrangement - Messaging and video chat - Verified profiles, including millionaire status - 40 million members Pricing: - Premium membership $99.99 a month - Diamond membership $249.99 per month - Women - Free and unlimited 4. Reddit DirtyR4R - Best Free Hookup Site Loveflutter.com Pros: - Completely free - Good female-to-male ratio - A variety of adult personal ads - DM any poster you want Cons: - The Reddit app is lacking - No video chat - No site-wide features - No matching - Verification system is questionable Reddit is one of the best sites for anything, not only because of the high membership (about 430 million) but also because of the general demographic balance. Women make up about one-third of the users, which is higher than any other of the dating sites, except maybe Seeking. But did you know there’s a thriving adult community within Reddit, spread across multiple niches or “subreddits”? The most popular is Dirty R4R (or Redditor for Redditor) and it features personal ads from user to user, explaining what kind of hookup encounter they want. These ads can include anything from online roleplay to big city one-night stands, LGBTQ, or swingers looking for unicorns or stallions. There aren’t many limits to what you can post, however, there is a subreddit moderator to weed out minors, spam posters, over-posters, overly vague ads, and people giving out personal information. What’s fun about Reddit is that it’s one of the few free hookup sites that allows everything from photo sharing (even GIF animations) to private chat, to private emails, to even group chat. There is even a new Live Reddit, which works similar to Snapchat or TikTok! The problem is that Reddit communities are so high in number, and so scattered, it’s hard to pick just one subreddit that’s a “best bet” for local hookups. Dirty R4R is the most popular, with 747,000 members. But most postings are for big cities. There is a verification process, sort of, since users can verify a photo with their handle clearly written in handwriting. This verification can even be shared across many subreddits that are partnered together by association. The real issue is that Reddit is not a dating app and has no centralized features, which includes filtering, swiping, or photo locking. Features: - Free personal ads - Moderated forums - Photo sharing, private mail, and live chat - No matching necessary - DM anytime Pricing: - Free! 5. FriendFinder - Casual Dating Site Loveflutter.com Pros: - Clean interface - Part of a larger network, reaching 700 million - Browse profiles for free Cons: - No forums for discussion - Pricey FriendFinder seems a bit familiar - probably because it’s part of the AdultFriendFinder network, which also includes Alt.com. The interfaces are also similar, while the demographics are slightly different. FriendFinder is all about uniting people passionate about life, casual dating, and relationships, regardless of how you define them. In addition to social networking and online personals, members can also share photos and videos, or start a live video stream. FriendFinder may seem like the second choice when compared to the flashier AdultFriend Finder, but FriendFinder has more members overall. In fact, when the network combines all of its users across platforms, we’re talking 700,000,000 signups. FriendFinder made our list as a separate dating site, because of its extended free preview. Whereas AdultFriendFinder has some limitations on the free preview, FriendFinder lets you browse profiles, filter your search, and start following attractive people by “becoming a fan.” Features: - Keyword search - Region or nearby search - Photo sharing - Add profiles to your favorites - Send gifts to start a conversation Pricing: - Gold membership $34.95 a month (unlimited) - Gold membership 15.82 a month (6 months) - Silver membership $22.94 a month (limited) - Silver membership $10.82 a month (6 months) 6. SearchingforSingles - Fun Hookup App for Texting Loveflutter.com Pros: - Friendly place and easy to start chatting - Buy messages instead of a trial month - Very discreet for wild hookup experiences Cons: - No real moderation to eliminate fakes Searching for Singles promises wild, discreet, and experimental hookups. And there are three ways to approach your search. First, by browsing through nearby profiles, (you can filter body type, hair color, and age) and chatting with fellow singles. Second, play the match game, which is similar to a swipe right/swipe left feature. You see a photo, with no explanation, and then can click to read the profile. One of the best features is that you can buy messages to have short conversations and test the chemistry. Five messages for $4.49 is more tempting than paying full price. Potential matches can also message you first to start a conversation, and these singles seem very blunt about what they want. Searching for Singles is a fairly new site but the friendly disposition of its casual dating pool gives it bonus points for starting a conversation. Features: - Search for local singles - Browse profiles - See who viewed your profile - See matches Pricing: - $4.49 for 5 messages - Or buy bulk messages between 10-200 7. Fetlife - Best *** Classifieds for Fetish Dating Loveflutter.com Pros: - Free membership - An adult social community - Free chat - Founded 2007 - 8 million members Cons: - No matching - No photos in chat - Not as many friendly people - No filter searches FetLife is a handy little compromise between adult dating forums and dating apps. The site is free to use and offers not only free profile browsing but also a number of forums about your favorite and most obscure fantasies. You can start your search by looking for local singles, or swingers, or “it’s complicated” kinksters. You can like photos, share a comment, read each other’s posts, and even have fun with other community features like user walls (say hello!), and a list of 100s of unique sexual interests. We’re talking hundreds, maybe thousands! User photos can be marked private or public and all posts can be tagged for better interaction. FetLife charges a small fee of $5 a month to see user videos, though it’s more of a donation to support the site’s hosting fees. Membership is completely free, although you may have to pay the premium to gain access to thousands of archived photos. In addition to matching and geographic browsing, you can also chat with users via private messaging or in hundreds of niche forums. Yet, FetLife probably sounds like a better deal than it is. With so much free use, you’re bound to find fakes, ghosters, rude people, and people who just prow for photos. That’s the disadvantage of a forum/dating site. Many users are not serious about hooking up and filter searching is non-existent. Still, FetLife is the best option for someone that wants an adult community but doesn’t want to pay the fees of more successful apps and hookup sites. Features: - Free membership and interaction - Thriving community - Photo sharing, public, and friends only - Forums and fetish searches - Keyword searches Pricing: - Only $5 a month for video and photo archives 8. Pure App - Most Discreet of the Casual *** Sites Loveflutter.com Pros: - Local or city-wide search - Browse and like profiles - Half a million active users - Founded in 2012 Cons: - Not the easiest app to install - Non-existent free preview - Pricey The Pure App is sometimes difficult to install, but the pitch is solid: a discreet and fun dating environment, perhaps catering to the anonymous lover looking for a buddy while on the road. Pure does get right to the point, customizing your hookup search (even offering labels of bi, gay, queer, and asexual), and does have some fun graphics to make the signup process go faster. The initial ad should state what you want or what you propose to your potential match. However, the free preview is limited. In order to post an ad, you must commit to a premium monthly fee, weekly fee, or yearly fee. Once you sign up and pay, you can check local ads or search by a major worldwide location. You also don’t have to wait for a mutual match. Simply tap on the heart icon and start chatting! The discretion factor is good since all chats self-destruct after 24 hours, so the app is ideal for professionals, marrieds, or anyone that doesn’t want their profile to be visible. Video chat is also available allowing for real-time verification. Features: - Video chat - Self-destructing messages - Discreet hookups - Browse profiles without matching first Pricing: - Weekly $14.99 - Monthly $29.99 - 3 Months $49.99 9. Bumble - Best Hookup App for Women Loveflutter.com Pros: - Women start the conversation - Founded 2014 - Over 42 million members - Above-average female-to-male ratio Cons: - No community aspects - Premium features aren’t worth it - Switching social modes is difficult Bumble was devised as the female alternative to Tinder. Whereas Tinder was overpopulated with men (and oftentimes men with no charm or conversational skills) Bumble had the idea to let women make the first move after a mutual match. The idea worked too because now women on Bumble can filter out the wrong type of guy and not waste any time figuring out a nice way to reject them. She can get the VIP pass to all the best guys in the local area, or in any geographic location, for that matter. Bumble has some perks, like adding a playlist or social media page to your profile. You can also choose one of three modes; Dating, Friendship, or Business Associates. However, you cannot easily switch between the three modes after signing up. Bumble also has a higher female-to-male ratio than most dating apps. Users say Bumble is also a bit more cautious in regard to moderating profiles or asking any suspicious users for photo verification. Bumble is the safer and more practical alternative to Tinder, but is definitely not a “serious relationship” dating app! Men just have to up their game a little if they want to stand out. That’s great news for women but might also intimidate men on the shy side. Features: - 3 modes: Dating, Friendship, and Business - Local searching or travel mode - Advanced filtering with premium - Discounted Lifetime Premium membership Price: - Free basic membership - Premium monthly $22.99 - Premium Lifetime $139.99 10. Tinder - Best One Night Stand App for Guys Loveflutter.com Pros: - Free basic membership - Low-cost premium membership - Search locally or by city - Tag your interests -Gay and trans-friendly Cons: - No real moderation - Hard to find a date - Lots of ghosters and fakes - Terrible male-to-female ratio Tinder is the most popular dating app in the world and probably because it’s ridiculously easy to use. Tinder pioneered the swipe right/left system, requiring only some great photos and a semi-interesting profile. It’s also free to use, assuming you get a mutual swipe right. If you want to message before you match, you need a Tinder premium. To this day, Tinder is one of the easiest ways to put yourself out there to an audience who is mostly OK with date talk, *** talk, and hookup offers. But you also have to use discretion. Some people use Tinder for casual dating, others use it for long-term dating. Some people have no idea why they use Tinder but plain curiosity. There are also fake profiles, ghosters, spammers, working girls, cheaters, fraudsters, psychopaths, and just about every bad scenario you can think of. Tinder doesn’t have a great reputation, but can you find a date on short notice? Sometimes. In addition to swiping, worldwide city search, and local searches, Tinder users can also link to their favorite songs, or Facebook page, and give people a better glimpse into their real-life personalities. Tinder is usually the app you use, get tired of using, and then delete…right before trying it again when the mood hits you. It’s addictive, even if it’s not always your best dating app. Features: - Geographic or local search - Message before you match with Premium - Add your playlist or Facebook page - Tag your interests Price: - Free basic membership - Plus for 1 month $4.99 - Plus for 12 months $19.99 - Gold for 12 months $59.99 11. Plenty of Fish - Best Hookup Site for College Students Loveflutter.com Pros: - 100 million users - Swipe system or browse profiles - Live! Video chat Cons: - Long questionnaire - No way to connect Instagram or Spotify Plenty of Fish gets a lot of credit for combining your favorite online dating features into one hookup website/app. You can start by chatting with members online and see their basic profile, or you can use the Meet Me swipe system and yay or nay based on looks. You can also search by nearby location, my matches, or by filtered search. There is no keyword search and you must upgrade to search by username. The premium membership only boosts your profile and gives you a few extra perks like priority messages. The most exciting feature is POF Live which lets you buy little gifts to get your favorite partner’s attention. Pricing: - Buy 10 tokens $19.90 - 5 tokens for $14.95 - 1 token for $3.99 - Or upgrade membership for $20 a month - Or $10 a month for 12 months 12. What’s Your Price - Best Hookup Platform for Budget Singles Loveflutter.com Pros: - Fun auction-style dating - 4 million members - No need to be a millionaire - You can auction yourself! Cons: - Not much matching, just money! - Not much of a social community What’s Your Price is the ideal dating app/site if you want to experience luxury dating, but are on a budget. The concept is similar to Seeking’s relationship “arrangement” setup but lets users convert a date to real numbers. As a wealthy-ish person, you can start the bidding for a date with an attractive partner. The highest bidder wins the opportunity to go on a date and according to the site, the average winning price is $125. It’s a lot of effort to get ready for a date and so attractive partners are reimbursed for their time. Meanwhile, wealthier people can finally date someone “out of their league.” You can even auction yourself and be a high-priced date! Pricing: - Buy 100 credits $50 - Buy 500 credits $150 - Buy 1000 credits $250 13. Alt.com - Best BDSM Hookup website Loveflutter.com Pros: - BDSM themed dating site - Very detailed profiles - Adult chat rooms - Live member or model shows Cons: - No real advantage over AdultFriendFinder Alt.com is part of the FriendFinder network, so has a lot in common with AdultFriendFinder, though this site leans more towards the BDSM side of dating. You connect with people, not based on casual conversation or location necessarily, but by shared interests and or fetishes. Alt.com boasts many features similar to Fetlife but one-ups them with a better search feature, more filtering, video intros, and group discussions. Pricing: - Gold $29.95 a month - Silver $19.95 a month - Gold $12.50 a month (12 months) - Silver $8.33 a month (12 months) 14. OkCupid - Free Casual Hookup Site Loveflutter.com Pros: - Free basic membership and chat - Questionnaire helps make matches - Inclusive to LGTBQ - Inclusive to non-monogamy Cons: - Not the best premium features OKCupid has a reputation for being “young” and millennial-friendly, as opposed to other general demographic dating apps like Tinder or AdultFriendFinder. Immediately, you’ll notice the signup process is generously quick, and you can choose a number of sexual and gender preferences. There are even non-monogamy options for polyamorous dating and you can link yourself to a partner in case you’re wild marrieds. The most challenging part is the 15-point questionnaire, which the site claims helps find you better matches. The questionnaire covers everything from your relationship wants, to more complex questions like religious, lifestyle, or political views. Premium features include seeing who liked you, seeing all questionnaire answers, unlimited likes, and the ability to unlock all intros at once. Pricing: - $49.99 a month - $33.33 a month for 3 months - $24.99 a month for 6 months How to Use Hookup Sites - FAQsNow that we’ve reviewed the best casual hookup sites, let’s answer some questions about hookups, safety, and the best features that matter. What Are the Best Real Hookup Sites for Me?The “best” is a matter of perspective. Different age groups may prefer one casual *** site over the other. We found that AdultFriendFinder was the “best” in the sense that it had a thriving community, many features, and a lot of activity to make the membership fee worthwhile. Ashley Madison and Seeking didn’t have as many features but were still the most active hookup apps. What Are Some Free Hookup Sites To Try?The most popular free hookup apps like Tinder and Bumble can find you a date, but don’t underestimate Reddit and Fetlife. If you’re determined to avoid payment, you’re not alone! Many people only use free dating apps and accept the limitations. Which Are the Best Hookup Sites Made for Women?The best hookup sites for women build around what women want! The feminist app Bumble was created to fix all the problems associated with Tinder, and it lets women make the first move. Seeking and What’s Your Price are also popular hookup apps for women because they reward a woman financially just for showing up for a date. Even Fetlife and AdultFriendFinder have a high female population, because the site is about them and their wants and needs, and not just about men asking them out. What Cool Features Do Hookup Sites and Apps Provide?Most apps and dating hookup sites provide cool features, such as the four different ways to search: by keyword, by local matches nearby, by geographic location, and by filtered listings. Some hookup apps like OkCupid provide the best matches based on chemistry, while AdultFriendFinder and FetLife let you find partners based on sexual compatibility and fetish matching. Live streaming chat is a new feature pioneered by AdultFriendFinder, Plenty of Fish, and OKCupid, and it’s the virtual equivalent of going to an open bar! What Are Some Safety Tips for Online Dating? Depositphotos.com When it comes to safety tips, online dating allows consenting adults to explore hookups and one-night stands without the need for oversharing personal information. Never give out any financial or personal data to someone you’re not literally engaged to! Meet for the first time in a public location and make sure someone you trust knows where you’re going in the event of an emergency. Are Hookup Websites Safe or Risky?Generally, the safest hookup sites are the ones that go beyond the minimum standard of safety. Some hookup websites require a photo and income verification, like Seeking, while others like AdultFriendFinder and Bumble let users post a verified badge. One-on-one video chat always helps to prove who is “real” and who gives off weird vibes, and AdultFriendFinder, OkCupid, and Plenty of Fish offer this advantage. Linking your dating profile to Facebook or Instagram, like Tinder and Bumble, is also wise. Do Escorts or “Working Girls” Use Casual Dating Sites?When it comes to the question if “working girls” are using casual dating sites, legally speaking prostitution is banned in 49 states and on every hookup dating site. Although escorting is not legally prostitution, professional escorts are also banned from every dating app and *** dating site. Are some profiles “undercover”? Possibly, but they can’t say anything of the sort through chat or a profile. They have to be a little more subtle about it. But remember, users also have to be careful not to accidentally solicit *** through chat, since you could bet talking to an undercover cop! Sites like Seeking and What’s Your Price are not escorting sites, because there is no sexual negotiation. The money exchanged is just for dating, allowance, and time. Which is the Top Hookup Site Overall?Overall, we found that AdultFriendFinder offered the best of all worlds. It has video streaming fun, lots of friendly users, multiple ways to search for a date, and many fetish groups to start a conversation. AdultFriendFinder also got bonus points for its five-star reputation and its huge database of profiles. Why not skip all the awkward moments of dating and take a VIP pass to a hookup app where there are hundreds of people ready to hook up? Thanks for reading! View the full article

  12. Apple is not shying away from cracking down on apps that access your private information with powerful new features on iOS 15. If you want to protect your private data such as location data, photos, camera, microphone, and what servers an app is communicating with, you need to turn on this feature on iOS 15 right away. This feature will now let users find out which apps are storing what kind of personal data and what they are up to behind the scenes. However, in order to make use of this privacy feature, iPhone users need to turn it on manually as it isn’t enabled by default. The new privacy feature is called ‘Record App Activity’ where it does exactly what the name suggests. You will first need to update your iPhone to iOS 15 if you want to start tracking what apps are doing. After updating your iPhone, you need to head to Settings > Privacy and then scroll to the bottom of the page. Tap on the ‘Record App Activity and turn it on. © MensXP Once enabled, your iPhone will now start recording everything that apps are up to and give a 7-day summary. The feature will record sensitive activities an app tracks such as: The user's photo libraryA cameraThe microphoneThe user's contactsThe user's media libraryLocation dataScreen sharingThe new privacy feature essentially gives users more control and gives information that they weren’t necessarily privy to previously. It will come most handy when you want to know when apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media apps record your usage and other personal details you may not be comfortable sharing. It’s the perfect tool to turn the tables on nefarious apps and spy on them in return. iOS 15 also introduces other new features such as Focus Mode, Shared With You, new FaceTime features a new weather app, a redesigned Safari app and much more. The iOS15 update has rolled out for a range of iPhone models, all the way back to the original iPhone SE and iPhone 6s models. View the full article

You can tell by just a scroll if she is a nice girl who’s worth your time or someone who’s outright annoying or worse, it’s a fake profile (swipe left faster than the speed of light). © iStock If you are new to the digital dating game, let’s give you a heads up. Here are 10 types of women every man is likely to meet on dating apps. 1. The Beauty (Filter) QueenShe is pretty but has super bright lighting, beauty filters and sometimes those weird stickers in her photos that make you think you are looking at some kid’s art project, and not a good one. 2. The Sanskari OneShe has photos in a saree (not the seductive types), some with family and kids which scream she’s perfect marriage material. She is definitely not here for casual hookups. She means business. Makes you wonder why she isn't on Jeevansathi.com. © iStock 3. The ‘Sin’skari OneThe alternate personality of the sanskari girl. If she’s wearing a saree, it's a seductive one. She’d have photos in a bar, half naked selfies on bed and or of her having fun with friends (a lot of friends). She might or might not be here for hookups, but she’d let you think she is. 4. The Swipe Left Girl‘Swipe left if you typ lyk dis’, ‘Swipe left if you’re any shorter than 6 ft’, ‘Swipe left if you hate cats’. She’s utterly annoying and even more snobbish once you text her. © iStock 5. The Fan GirlShe's crushing hard on either BTS or the latest US TV show she's watched. How can you tell she’s a big fan? Her profile is filled with quotes from her favourite band/show and she desperately wants you to know she’s cool (but is she?). 6. The Girl Next DoorShe looks cute and has a smart and sensible bio. One of the few normal girls from the lot. And, when you talk to her, she’s cool and funny. Jackpot! Just the perfect blend of everything you could hope for. © iStock 7. The Influenzaa The incredibly stylish (kind of out of your league) woman who has linked her Instagram account on her profile. Why? To let you ogle more of her pics? Wrong. You’d be one of her million followers. 8. Miss MIAShe will match with you only to leave you stranded in her chat. She almost never replies. She isn’t aloof. Either really, really busy or she forgets she’s on a dating app. © iStock 9. The HeartbrokenShe is still recovering from her breakup and that’s why she isn’t looking for anything serious. When she says, “but can we be friends and hang out?” to make my ex jealous is silent. 10. The CatfishThe most common of the lot on dating apps. She looks unrealistically beautiful in her pictures and is sweet to talk to but when you meet her, she looks nothing like her pictures. At least, she isn’t a guy. © iStock So, how many of them have you met? View the full article
  14. Dating apps are equally fun and exhausting. While there are people who met the one and swiped right for life, there are some who are still scavenging apps for true love (or hook-ups) which feels like searching for a needle in the haystack. © iStock Whether or not you end up finding what you are looking for, you do meet some crazy people on these apps. I won’t lie, while I have dated a couple of guys and met some really good friends (things don’t always work out romantically), I have blocked some super weird guys too. The spectrum of personalities you come across on online dating platforms is that broad. © T-series To give you a quick glimpse of the world, here are 10 types of dudes that every woman has met on dating apps. If you have not met them, you are probably one of them. © iStock 1. The Gym FreakOne look at their profile and you know your first date would be an intense physical activity (not the one you were hoping for) like hiking or a bike ride. His photos mostly feature gym selfies with his naked torso that show off his six-pack abs. 2. Here For The ‘GramThe guy who’s there to connect on Instagram and increase his followers. You never hear from him again after you add him on Insta and end up deleting him after a while. 3. Mr. RightHe has a funny bio, nice photos and seems genuine when you talk to him. What’s the catch? Well, he might be the one or you may find out he is catfishing. It can be either of the two. Guess, you will only find out on the date. © iStock 4. The ‘D*ck’Why I have a certain name for this category is because either their profile has a d*ck pic or they would send you one after you’ve matched. 5. The ClingHe would seem okayish but as you keep on chatting, you realise he is a total creep. He will bombard you with “Hey dear.” “Why you no reply me?” “Good morning” “U der?” And, that’s exactly your cue to unmatch. 6. The TravellerHis profile looks like a catalogue for holiday destinations and he would boast about his travel bucket list that he wants to tick off. © iStock 7. The Family GuyHe would have photos with friends and family and at first it would be hard to make out who among the clan is the owner of the profile. 8. The HollowHis profile would be as empty as your life. He'll have one blurred selfie or a photo of a guitar. You will find nothing except his name and would most probably think if he’s a secret agent of RAW. 9. The Pet Dad He would have pictures with his dog/cat/parrot/tortoise and would come across as a caring person. Damn, we always fall for such guys. © iStock 10. The ‘Shashi Tharoor’He uses big, fancy (scary sometimes) words out of the Oxford dictionary in his bio but when you talk to him, he is either exceptionally basic or says things like “I didn’t knew you are passed away from my school.” View the full article
  15. A very wise man once said, “Somewhere, someone is made for you”. That man was Aditya Chopra who made us believe that there is someone out there for us with his film Dil To Pagal Hai. The place where you find your soulmate may not be a dancing studio like in the movie, but it can be a dating app (since we are keeping up with the times). © iStock Regardless of how different someone's preferences, appearance or personality is, there are dating apps that play cupid to people who are looking for strangest requirements in their partner. You might find these apps weird but they are actually helping people find their perfect, a bit odd, match. © iStock Here are 5 such strange dating apps that you won’t believe exist on the internet: 1. Singles With Food Allergies © Warner Bros. Studios Food allergies are serious and one cannot simply spend their entire life with someone who might kill them accidentally on a date night by ordering something fatal. © Singles With Food Allergies This dating app helps you match with people who have the same food allergies as you so you can have dinner dates without worrying about your death. 2. Tall Friends © Netflix For people who are incredibly tall and have a hard time finding love, this inclusive dating app makes it so much easier. © Tall Friends Whether you are tall yourself or are looking for someone who can reach the top shelf in the kitchen, this is where you should be. Women who put ‘swipe left if under 6 feet’ should sign up on this. 3. Stache Passions © CBS Remember when Barney Stinson told Ted that there are women who are naturally attracted to men with moustaches? Well, guess it’s true and there’s a whole legit dating app for women who are into men with the stache. © Stache Passions If you are a proud owner of a mighty moustache, you can find your soulmate who would fall for your face-mane. 4. Millionaire Match © Warner Bros. Television Ever wondered where the crème de la crème of society, the most successful and filthy rich people, meet their dates? It’s not always at a yacht or a club in Miami or at wine tasting events. © Millionaire Match Sometimes, it is dating apps like Millionaire Match where the elite and eligible singles find their grand love stories. 5. Clown Dating © Clown Dating This is a one of a kind dating app for clowns or admirers of clowns. While some people find clowns scary, there are some who are apparently looking for someone who can make them laugh all their lives. © Lloyd-Levitan Productions And who better than a professional entertainer like a clown? Clown Dating also helps people in this profession to easily find love. Although these apps seem bizarre, they prove that you can find love regardless of how different you are. And, it’s great!

  16. Thanks to the magic of technology and the internet, ordering food is just a click away. Your mindless, aimless hunger has a full stop courtesy the plethora of options available online and the food delivery apps helping us find the right place to order, not to forget the little discounts that fall in our kitty are an added bonus. However, as a consumer and a regular user of these food delivery apps, it is possible that there are some mistakes you might be making as elaborated by a former food delivery agent. In an interview with Insider, a former delivery agent pointed out the most common mistakes people make while ordering via these apps and it includes points like lack of clarity when mentioning the house address. According to Annie Smith, who worked for a US delivery company called Postmates, app users feel that it is not a big deal when they don’t keep the entrances of their houses well lit. This, however, becomes a problem for your delivery agent who has trouble locating your address. Annie recalls that she had to often walk in dark streets to locate the correct address. © Twitter The next common mistake is the lack of delivery instructions for an order. This includes not mentioning gate pass codes, if any, or landmarks, or like a floor number etc. this becomes an added headache for your delivery agent who has trouble locating your address if it’s a corner house at the end of the street or like in a gated community. So besides navigation issues, the next common mistake according to her that most users commit is not tipping enough for the rider. All food delivery apps in India have an option of choosing to tip your rider and it looks like it’s a common issue in the US as well, where riders feel they aren’t tipped well. © Twitter The last and another common mistake as pointed out by her is that most people feel weary of ordering food during a rush hour or peak traffic hours, thinking that their order will be delivered in a longer period of time than they estimate. However, that’s not always true as during busy hours, the app services have more drivers on call, so that means there’s a big chance that your order might be delivered sooner than you expected. While these mistakes have been pointed out keeping the American demography and consumer culture in mind, if we think about it, then the scene back home in India also seems pretty similar. How many of these common mistakes are you guilty of committing? View the full article

  19. You may be scouring all the dating apps out there only to end up with zero matches. Zilch. Nothing. No, nothing is wrong with you. Let’s get that out of the way first. Before you blame the algorithm, there is another possibility why the dating apps never seem to work for you. There could be something wrong with the way your profile looks. © iStock Take it from a woman who has used dating apps and been a subject to cringeworthy profiles a lot of times. I don’t wish that for you so let’s fix your dating problem by fixing your dating profile. Here are 5 reasons that are keeping you from getting a match on a dating app and how you can fix it. © iStock 1. You have a boring bio or you’re trying too hard © Twitter An uninteresting bio is as off-putting to women as one that seems like you are trying too hard. Even if your profile picture is killer, your bio can mess it up for you. When a girl comes across your profile, she doesn’t want to read quotes that she can find on Google or worse, behind a truck. Avoid things like ‘My motto is live, laugh and love’. Keep your bio short, crisp and original or make something up that is funny but tells something about you. 2. Your pictures are making her roll her eyes © iStock I’ll let you in on a secret. A girl can tell a lot about a guy and his personality just by looking at the pictures he puts. Nothing makes her swipe left faster than a shirtless selfie or a childhood photo of you (that belongs in your family photo album). Gym photos are complete no-no, even if you have a smokin’ body. It doesn’t hurt to be subtle about your hotness, especially on a dating app. Instead, put aesthetic SOLO photos of you, maybe some travel pictures or just you in your element that don’t come off as trying too hard. 3. Your profile Is incomplete © Instagram/Bumble India Putting only a couple photos when you can add five or six and missing out on information about you like passions and interests or things that could give her a sneak peak on what she’s swiping right to, is the most common mistake guys make. In other words, it is the first step to a lifetime of singlehood. An half-assy profile would make her think you don’t use the app much, aren’t active or uninterested and rest assured, she won’t bother. 4. You are sticking to the cliches © Instagram For Hinge and Bumble users, you have a great opportunity to get creative with questions. However, guys often stick to the cliches like ‘unpopular opinion: pineapple on pizza’ or ‘together we could: Netflix & Chill’. Also, steer clear of vague answers like ‘I know best places in town for: Brunch’. Be witty, random and specific to make your profile as personal as you can. That, my friend, is what will pique her interest in knowing more about you. 5. You have a snobbish or negative profile © iStock Women like men who are chill, sweet and positive. I mean, we need someone to deal with our random mood swings, not walk away and tell us off. A lot of guys try to play hard or seem cool by choosing prompts like ‘don’t swipe right if…’ or ‘You should *not* go out with me if’ and answering them with even snobbing things. You are only making her run, instead of drawing her into having a conversation with you. © Instagram/Tinder India Remember that on most dating apps, men outnumber women and the chances of you standing out in her ‘new matches’ section is all that matters. Good luck! View the full article
  20. “Sexuality shouldn't define anyone. It doesn't define me. Love should be at the core of what you do.” - Jessie J (Singer/Songwriter) When I came out as bisexual in 2015, I was lucky enough to be surrounded by friends & family that understood and supported my decision. But, many are not so fortunate. We hear stories about parents rejecting their kids, queerphobic messages on social media that hamper our mental health and just a fear of being cast off by society. Even though we are all moving towards creating a more inclusive and accepting world, every member of the LGBTQIA+ community faces some stereotype or other on a daily basis. © A Little Late With Lilly Singh I was subjected to my fair share of creepy, indecent and crass remarks as a bisexual on dating apps. Yes, you read that right, even people our age who are supposed to be “woke” and “inclusive” have no understanding of how to speak to an out and proud queer individual. So, grab your notebook and take note of things that no bisexual wants to hear: 1. “Threesome?”This is a patent question that I get asked on every dating app that I have ever used. As soon as my match finds out that I am bisexual the only thing that they are interested in knowing is whether I have in the past or would be open to having a threesome in the future. © Instagram/ Pritish Nandy Communications My sexuality is not a way for you to live out your sexual fantasy! 2. “I Can’t Even Imagine Being With A Man”Okay? So, don’t. Me being bisexual is not an indication for every straight man to walk the same road but it is definitely time to learn what not to say! Finding other men attractive does not make you gay, complementing their outfit does not make you gay, having a fashion sense does not make you gay similarly matching with an LGBTQIA+ member is not an opening for you to showcase how straight you are. __ECOMPRODUCT__1800__ 3. “Your Oral Skills Must Be Through The Roof”Whenever I hear this statement, it makes me want to delete the app and give up on mankind. It is crass, cheap, in poor taste and just unsophisticated to make this statement. MensXP Me being bisexual is not about my sexual skills and it is statements like these that will make every straight & bisexual woman cringe and unmatch. 4. “Are You Sure You Are Not A Lesbian?”If I had a rupee for every time someone asked me this question, I would 100% be a millionaire. What people fail to understand is that bisexuality is not a pit stop towards becoming a lesbian. There are many people who are curious about being with the same *** and while that is absolutely okay, it is important to remember that Bisexuality & Bi-curiosity are two different things. __ECOMPRODUCT__1801__ 5. “Bisexuality Is Not A Real Thing”This is the statement that makes every other line seem insignificant. Whether you are gay, lesbian, trans, asexual or a part of the LGBTQIA+ community in any other way, you have heard this statement in some form or other. © Instagram/ Happiest Season I can choose to love both men & women, I can choose to build a relationship in the way I see fit. Bisexuality is real because it is what I feel! To Wrap It UpIt is 2021 and the time to fix our mindset towards the members of the LGBTQIA+ community is long past gone. This Pride Month, we need to start listening to our queer friends and family members, we need to fight for their right to love and most importantly we need to educate ourselves so that every one of us can be a true ally to this community.

  21. Thanks to the pandemic, the chances of you bumping into the love of your life at a library or on the train are zero to none. Because do gaz ki doori, mask hai zaroori! Thankfully, online dating apps make it so much easier to meet someone. © iStock All it takes is a simple swipe followed by flirty texts and pick up lines to score a date while sitting at home. While it’s convenient and fun, you can’t deny that it’s no Bollywood romance, you know with violins playing in the back (if that happens IRL). © Dune Entertainment Plus, OLD is hard. You go through the same set of rapid fire questions, your pace doesn't match and the chances of being ghosted and catfished is much higher than when you meet someone organically. I mean, don’t you miss the school and college romance? Or meeting someone by chance? Twitter misses it too and started a trend where people are discussing how they would want to meet ‘the one’ the old fashioned way. © Yash Raj Films People are tweeting “deleting my dating apps because i want to meet someone the old fashioned way” followed by their wildest and filmy fantasies of how they would want to find love ‘offline’.

  22. Ever wondered which apps drain the most amount of battery on your smartphone? Well, you would be surprised to know that many apps you may have ignored earlier are the biggest culprits. While both Apple and Google have been tweaking their respective OS to help users conserve battery life, there are some apps that still end up being power-hungry. Cloud storage company pCloud decided to test out some of the most popular apps and found the worst battery hogs. Apps like Tinder and Uber were found to be the biggest culprits amongst many others. The company explained in its summary that it set out to determine which apps were draining the battery the most as well as throttling the performance of devices. “When looking at which apps are the most demanding on our phones, we (analyzed) three things,” pCloud notes. “The applications each app uses, such as location or camera, the battery these applications use and whether dark mode is available. By combining the results of these three factors, we were able to calculate which of the 100 most popular apps are the most demanding and crown them the ultimate phone killers.” Apps that drain the most battery happen to be dating and social media apps. Apps like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Linkedin, YouTube and WhatsApp were amongst the top 20 biggest culprits. If you want to know apps that are the biggest culprits, check out this infographic shared by pCloud. © Twitter pCloud In addition to these apps, pCloud also published 50 secret phone “killing” apps which have been illustrated in the infographic below. © pCloud For its conclusions, pCloud used a methodology that checks which apps demand the most permissions from a smartphone at any given time. “Each “demand” e.g. Wifi was then weighted based on its perceived battery consumption to give a weighted total demand. If an app had access to a larger total of battery draining permissions, it would be ranked highly as a phone killer,” pCloud said in its findings. Source: pCloud View the full article
  23. Apple’s new App Tracking Transparency feature has finally rolled out for iPhone and iPad users via the iOS 14.5 update. The new features prevent companies like Facebook, Google or other apps that use your personal data for serving targeted advertisements. The new feature is a big deal as it directly impacts the business models of giants like Facebook, Google and other apps that rely on advertisement revenue. © Apple While this feature was unveiled last year at WWDC, it finally made its way to users earlier this week. Apple has switched to IDFA (“Identifier of Advertising”) replacing the previous Unique Device Identifier that was used by websites and apps to track for targeted ads. Now, Apple is giving more control to iPhone/iPad users who want to limit ad tracking on certain apps or all apps they use on personal devices. How To Stop App Tracking in iOS 14.5 © Apple In order to use the App Tracking Transparency feature, you need to first update your iPhone or iPad to iOS 14.5. You can update your OS by going to Settings > General > Software update. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the latest update, you can head to Settings > Privacy > Tracking. You can now disable “Allow Apps To Request to Track” if you don’t want any of your installed apps to track you. However, if you wish to grant certain apps to track you, you will need to leave the feature on. Each time you download a new app, you will get a pop-up notification asking whether you want to give it permission to track your activity across other companies. You can also manage specific apps that can track you from the Privacy menu if you want more control on which apps should be allowed to track you. View the full article
