Everything is online now, including dating. The most popular alternatives appear to be Bumble and Tinder. Each app has its loyal users and there are advantages and disadvantages for both. Let’s put them side to side and see how they are different.
Do you want something serious?
Both dating apps can help you meet someone else, and it is up to you how things go from there. However, if take into account their reputation, Tinder is better for casual relationships. On the other hand, if you are looking for something more serious, then Bumble should be your choice.
You don’t have to pay for these apps as they are both available for free. However, if you want additional features, you will have to pay for them. If you use Bumble you can purchase the Bumble boosts which costs $9.99 per month. Tinder has two different options; you could get Tinder Plus which costs $9.99 monthly or Tinder Gold, which is more expensive at $21.99 per month.
Some studies revealed the age groups for the women who use these dating apps. It appears that Tinder is more popular among young women, with ages between 16 and 34 years old. Meanwhile, Bumble appears to be popular among women of all ages.
You should pick a dating app based on the country in which you live. For example, in the United States Tinder remains the most popular dating app, which means that if you live in the U.S.A., Tinder might be a better option for you.
Then again, if you are looking for a serious relationship you might prefer Bumble. According to their stats, almost 60% of the matches on that app become something serious. This might be because Bumble matches expire within 24 hours if there is no response.
