    I, A Single Person, Tried Six Different Dating Apps So That You Don't Have To

    I did this all for you people (and to find love). Please appreciate this.

    Hi world, Lara here, and I'm single. However, I have recently decided that I might want to pursue finding someone to sit on my couch with me while I eat peanut butter, get high, and watch 90 DAY FIANCÉ: BEFORE THE 90 DAYS, aka my ideal relationship. Therefore, I embarked on a journey. And that journey was trying out as many dating apps as I could stomach.

    Before we begin, let me just say that there are a lot of dating apps. Like is still a thing, as is something called Sweatt (yes, two Ts) where people who love working out or doing CrossFit or something can hang out, IDK. The point is, I only chose apps that seemed applicable to my life and my interests. Some of them are free, some of them cost money, and all of them are going to help me find love, right???

    It's also extremely worth mentioning that I am a straight woman looking to date men and my experience will be based solely on that. I can't speak to these apps in any non-heterosexual perspective.

    Alright, are you ready? Let's do this.

    1. Bumble

    Also, for what it's worth, Bumble *really* tested my limits at times. I still enjoyed it overall, though. Am I insane? Possibly.

    next time someone tells me they met their s.o. on a dating app i’m going to punch them in the face

    2. Hinge

    Hinge was overall great except for this person who is dead to me forever:

    3. Raya

    4. Tinder

    Also, Tinder is low-key hard to delete. They asked me like 12091039292 times. And I was like YES TINDER, I'm sure. I think. I hope.

    5. The League

    6. OkCupid

    So, am I still single? And if so, what apps am I still using you might ask?

    I am still single, but things are promising. 😉(Sorry for using a winky face.) As far as apps I am still on? Just Hinge. That's it. But for the record, I would be open to OkCupid and Bumble down the line if need be. Thanks for listening. And by listening I mean reading.
