If you’re having doubts about a particular app working for you, you’ll be happy to know there are now over 1,500 dating apps available online, many of which are catered specifically to different needs, so you can have the best, safest experience finding someone to spend time with! Different preferences include: over 50s dating, apps only you can make the first move on, LGBTQ+ catered apps, single parents looking for love, and many more!
Each dating app works slightly differently to the next, but typically you will be provided with a profile to make your own: adding your interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes, and a few pictures of yourself that you really like. Most apps will then use an algorithm to find people nearby that you could potentially have an interest in, sometimes matching your hobbies, interests, and political views to theirs, so you can find likeminded people to yourself.
In 1965, a team of Harvard undergrads created Operation Match, the world’s first computer dating service. For $3, users could answer questionnaires and receive a list of potential matches, a process that is still used by many dating sites to this day. In 2004, this same Harvard group created what would be later known as OKCupid.
By 1996, there were 16 dating websites available for use, and the number has skyrocketed since.
