It damn near invented the idea of right-swiping for "yes" and has evolved from its original "hookups-only" origin to a more standard dating app.
Because of the vetting process, you'll find very few catfishers or fake profiles here, not something that's guaranteed on other apps.While it's a dating app, it also has a community feel to it.You can read and share content, as well as find local events to attend.There are a few dating apps that are more inclusive, however it is slim pickings.
