As society became more comfortable with the digital aspects of our everyday lives, it is more acceptable for people to meet up with someone that they have met online or through an app.I spent a week on Tinder, Kik and Ok Cupid to check out the world of digital dating.Kik is all around less automatic than Tinder and Ok Cupid, because even though the app can import your contacts who also use Kik, you have to manually search for new users by their username.It’s a convenient app to use for simple chat functions, similar to texting.If you want Valentine's Day to last longer, write each "I Love You" in a different language on a colored, heart-shaped piece of paper. For the next two months, each day you can place a new envelope somewhere where your partner will find it making your love - and Valentine's Day - last a couple of months rather that a single day. If you are in a more playful mood, cut out the heart-shaped pieces of paper and write "I Love You" in a different language along with a hint where your partner can find the next envelope. From general topics to more of what you would expect to find here, has it all. I remember being a 15-year-old kid on Myspace, with all of the worry that surrounds getting into a sticky situation after agreeing to meet up with someone on the site.
Tinder only notifies you if you and another user have both swiped right on each other.
Tinder uses GPS and your current location to find people around you who also use the app.
You can swipe their picture to the left if you’re not interested, or to the right if you want to chat.
Tinder and Kik are among the most popular chat apps, and Ok Cupid is a popular social and dating website (that now has an app).
All three of these are free to download and use, but Ok Cupid has some features that can only be accessed by paying to upgrade to an “A-list User”.
