Skout is one of the largest online dating platforms with over 5 million users.Skout’s “Meet Me” feature allows users to flip through and see who’s nearby and ready to hook up.
At first people were drawn to the app for its simplicity - users can swipe left to decline and right to approve a date. Now, it seems you can’t go anywhere without meeting couples who got together though it.
The app’s best quality is undoubtedly its sheer amount of users – there are 50 million active ones, so it’s unlikely you’ll run out of potential matches.
Before you join, the app has to approve you as a member (a slightly daunting process) or you have to be invited.
If you want to unlock certain features you either have to pay or invite other to join.
You can see who’s checked you out, send messages and send wink bombs.
Wink bombs give you the opportunity to reach out to over 500 women and say, “Hey, what’s up? Shake your device and Skout will find someone nearby to chat with in 30 seconds or less. With Miu Meet, it’s easy to find Miu Meet users who are nearby. Let them know you “like them,” and if you “maybe interested” in meeting up.
A friend who uses it tells me: “It’s good if you’re picky…
but there aren’t a lot of people on it.” Cost: Free I can’t really make a list of the best dating sites without mentioning Tinder. Tinder once had a reputation for being a ‘shagging app’ - but that's changed.
Profiles consist only of a first name, an age, a 500-character description, and up to six photos.
