She wants me to send money to buy one via her money transfer account.
Just like online dating before it, dating apps started out as a bit of a dirty secret – how many Tinder profiles joke that they’ll want to lie about how you met?
Once you connect your Facebook account, it recommends matches you have mutual friends with – letting you know their employment and education, then giving you the chance to chat if you both like each other.
It limits you to 12 or so potential matches per day (the exact amount depends on how many Facebook friends you have), giving it a bit more focus than the sprawl of Tinder or Happn.
You’ll be served one ‘bagel’ (read: person) each day, in the hopes that it will encourage each of you to give the other your undivided attention for 24 hours.
Of course, that flies in the face of the old adage that dating is a numbers game – with only one potential match each day, it could be a while before you find someone you really get along with, especially if you’re looking for long-term prospects.
Where you live and how much you move around will determine whether Happn works for you.
Her latest development is a pioneer of the ‘female-friendly’ dating app, requiring women to send the first message after the two of you match with each other – though they only get 24 hours to do so to encourage them to be proactive.
You also pick up ‘beans’ (read: points) for joining the app, getting friends to join, promoting it on social media and more.
These are essentially an in-app currency you can spend to match with more people, by ‘taking’ a ‘bagel’ you’re interested in.
But time and ubiquity have meant that apps like Tinder and Grindr are no longer seen as a source of shame, and they’re just another of the many ways people can try and meet each other in the modern digital age.
Inevitably, that success has sparked a wave of imitators and successors, from established dating websites dipping their toes in the app waters, to start-ups with a bright idea and a novel gimmick hoping to make an impression.
