Bagel facebook dating
I have a friend who met her fiancé on Tinder, and another friend just dated a Tinderella for over a year. That being said, however, I went in with an open mind but a heavy sense of skepticism.I’ve heard the success stories, but I’ve also heard the horror stories – as, I’m sure, have you. As I enter my 24th year, I also enter into real adulthood in a new city.
You connect to your Facebook to make a profile, so the photos are pretty much selected for you.
Because of all this, I was led to embark upon one of the weirdest, funniest, and most rewarding adventures of my life: I joined five different dating apps at once.
I’ve never been into online dating, so signing up for any app was daunting.
I tested their standards of profiles (yikes – see more below), their processes, and their successes and failures. While each individual app is unique, I wanted to present myself as uniformly as possible.
I did all this for one main reason: to make this process easier for all those of who want to try it. (For example, while Tinder has more of a “hook-up” stereotype than Hinge does, I didn’t want to present myself as more open to hook-ups on one versus the other.) It’s difficult to decide how to present yourself in this capacity – how much is appropriate to share, but how much is not enough?
Matches are based on your preferences and personality type, and you get to pass or connect with the ‘bagels’ (aka profiles) you get for the day.
