Often, the app would pair you with someone of the same career interests. Not only does this ensure a solid match, it also makes sure your first date isn’t awkward at all – with all the things you could be talking about, you know?

3. Crush:

‎Crush Online Dating & Chat App on the App Store

Crush is an app for the women of tomorrow – while we all believe in women voting, women possessing the right to freedom of speech, the freedom of what to wear, the freedom for basically anything; Crush places almost all the power of dating in the hands of these empowered women. The app gives the ladies the final say in who to date. 

Like Tinder, you will go through profiles, and instead of swiping, the woman will be able to ask a question to any man she fancies, if she likes the response, she will be the one unlocking the match and they can begin dating. Crush is a mirror to the Bumble app, except with Crush you ladies have all the power you could get!

The men on this app have to wait until a woman approaches them first, once the lady has approached you, you will have 24 hours before the match expires. If you do not reply within the 24 hour window, the match would disappear.

Likewise, if the guy replies to the first message sent and the woman is unable to respond within the 24 hour window of the reply – the match would again be expected to expire, making it a very time sensitive application for the youth of today! It also has extended apps such as Bumble BFF where you can connect and make new friends!
