Finding love in the land of Corona is nothing short of heroic achievement. It’s a battlefield of red flags out there, and all anyone wants to do is stay safe while dipping their toes in the romance pool. Yes, these are dark and troubling times, but we shall persevere. Clearly, hookup apps have never been more instrumental in safely finding that special someone. Fortunately, these modern times have inspired many promising options for hookup apps. Let’s take a look at some of these options.
Ah, yes, the wild world of Tinder. Tinder is a place where the hopeless and hopeful romantics of the online dating world can seek out long-term relationships just as easily as they can engage with the app and its Tinder users by dispensing all kinds of cheesy one-liners that they’d never use in real life. It’s an app that can be taken seriously, but also, it can just inspire a whole lot of silly conversations.
The free version of Tinder can’t hold a candle their Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold options. If one were to upgrade to the Tinder Gold (most elite version), they’d find themselves with the ability to see who liked them before they played the guessing game of a right-swipe here, and a left-swipe there. They’d also be rewarded five super likes a day. These super likes put a Tinder user’s profile at the front of the line. If you’re really awestruck by someone, or five someones, this might prove worth it very quickly.
Lastly, Tinder Gold throws each of its members a monthly boost. The boost shines the light on that beautiful profile and has the potential to bring an unprecedented amount of likes in. The Tinder Gold feature will run anyone just about $16 a month. The Tinder Plus feature is the same deal without the free monthly boost, and will only run users $10 a month. Just be mindful of the auto-renewal feature if you find yourself displeased with the upgrades, and want to cancel.
With all those exciting features and memberships having been covered, it’s crucial to remember that clear and honest communication between Tinder users is key to stopping the spread of the Coronavirus.
Grindr is a widely used geo-located, gay hookup app. Gay men using the app are able to upload their profile photo with a small bio, and then see other guys around them, listed in order of proximity. There’s also Grindr Xtra, which allows any Grindr user to see upwards of six times the amount of guys around them that they’d normally see.
One can see how this might vastly increase the odds that someone is able to go about locking down a successful hookup. Just as we pointed out with Tinder, it’s key that anyone using the app establishes with the other person what their status is on the Coronavirus. Got to stop the spread!
MeetNFuck is a real fun one and is hailed by some folks as the ideal dating app for folks who just want to hook up. If you’re looking for a quick fix instead of being on the hunt to look for something serious, or if you’re just too busy to settle down at the moment, MeetNFuck may be your easy solution for a good (and horny) time. This hookup app has an easy conversation platform, so you can make sure to vet your hookup candidates prior to meeting them. Make sure to stay safe and offer to meet someone in public before going somewhere privately.
We’ve taken a look at a few of the world’s leading dating apps. Yes, this is a uniquely stressful time, and we’ll no doubt be telling stories about living through the Coronavirus, one day in the future. In the meantime though, let’s do everyone a favor and practice dating in a safe and mindful manner. We’re lucky to have these kinds of dating apps at our disposal in the first place!
