Tinder has been on the scene since 2012. In this time, it has amassed a total user base of 50 million.

Coffee Meets Bagel also has a blog, and a very helpful dating stats page that will surely help you up your online dating game.


#4 Bumble

Free Dating App 4 - Bumble

On Bumble, women make the first move. This approach helps remove a couple of the negatives that have plagued online dating. One being the numerous rejections men must face, the other is the amount of creepy PMs women must endure. This approach has been very well received by the Bumble community. It has helped them build a database of over eight million active members worldwide.

Bumble works similarly to other dating apps. You swipe right to like a member and left to pass. Once a mutual like has been established, the woman has 24 hours to initiate conversation. This unique approach yields very good results in terms of members setting up actual real-life dates.

Bumble is an absolutely free dating app. It operates under a freemium model. Although the app is free, members have the option to upgrade to a paid membership. This is called Bumble Boost. Bumble Boost costs $9.99 per month. What you get with Bumble boost is 3 extra features. One is the ability to receive only profiles of members that have already liked you.

The closest members are presented to you in hopes of a match being made. Blendr has an impressive database of members that exceeds 300 million worldwide. We did, however, encounter many profiles that were inactive and even some that were fake. Tighter moderation would make this one of the best dating apps out there but unfortunately, at the moment this is not the case. If you’re good at filtering out the fake profiles, you’ll have a better time on this app. If not, you may go down the road of chatting with fake members which can cause a lot of wasted time.

#8 Hater

Free Dating App 8 - Hater

Unlike other dating apps that match users based on what they like, Hater takes the opposite approach and matches its users based on what they hate.
