Online dating is in our modern age one of the best and most important ways to meet women. No matter in the US, Europe or the Philippines, dating apps are playing a key factor and there’s no better way to boost your chances in your quest for fun or love. In this post we tell you everything about the most important dating apps for smartphones on the Philippines…
PinaLove is one the most famous dating apps available for iOS and Android. The big advantage of PinaLove is the Filipino only database. There are 99% only Filipino women registered and you don’t have to mess with other kind of girls you don’t like. PinaLove works really well if you are on the Philippines, but not abroad. PinaLove also has the reputation to offer something for everybody needs. No matter if you are looking for one night stands, paid sex or a serious relationship, the chances to find it are really equal with PinaLove.
The registration is 100% free and more than 500 members per day are joining PinaLove. PinaLove is really a free Filipina dating site and there are some very sweet women who you can contact without having to pay a single cent! Of course there also some limitations in the basic version, so you can not send unlimited messages and have to wait a little bit until you can send the next message via the included messenger.
The premium version unlocks all functions of PinaLove and is in our opinion definitely the money worth, especially if you are living on the Philippines or planning to go for holiday there…
Tinder is one of the most famous dating apps world-wide and also in the Philippines widely known. As successful as it is at forming long-distance relationships and successful marriages, Tinder has long been accused of changing dating into some form of hookup game. The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account, but you do have to be older than 18. Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images. Then the real fun begins.
Tinder shows you a photo, name, and age. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person. You can also choose to swipe right (to like them), left (to pass), or up if you want to use one of your precious “super likes” to show them you really really like them. If you and another person have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message. The free option comes with limited swipes, and you’ll have to pay per month for unlimited swipes.
OkCupid is another big name in the dating biz. After creating an username, you’ll start filling out a very long profile, to which you can link to your Instagram account. You can answer questions, giving both your answer and what you’d like your potential match’s answer to be — this creates a percentile score for users that reflects compatibility. You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.
There is also a search function where you can filter for the location. In comparison to Tinder, Okcupid works not only around your actual location, but world-wide. So you can search for exmaple Filipinas girls even if you are in your hometown in the US or Europe. That is a big advantage and one reason why OKCupid works best for us!
Coffee Meets Bagel
Coffee Meets Bagel does require logging in through your Facebook in order to create a profile. Once you’ve set up your profile and input your preferences, it will send you a few “bagels” a day — the profile of a potential match. You then have 24 hours to decide whether you want to “like” or “pass” on your bagel. If you like your bagel and they have also liked you, you’ll connect, meaning that you’ll be able to message one another in a private chat. That chat room expires after eight days, regardless of whether you’ve talked with your bagel or not. You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.
The service also offers more specific preference options, meaning you can narrow your choices to certain religious beliefs or ethnicities if those things are important to you. You can load up to nine photos and have a much more prolific profile, too. And if you’ve entered any icebreakers into your profile, the app will send one of them to a bagel you’ve connected with as the first message for greater convenience. The fact that the chat room expires after a week puts some pressure on you to exchange phone numbers or meet up in real life or to just quietly fade away without any fuss. The interface is also relatively user-friendly, with large photos and clean text.
Coffee Meets Bagel is more a dating app for serious relationships. If you are searching for quick fun or dates better use PinaLove and Tinder!
