Think of your dating profile as your first impression: you don't want to blow it! There's no need for your whole life story - that can wait - simply focus on writing about what interests you and what you hope to find on SilverSingles. It also helps to upload a really nice picture so your fellow SilverSingles members know who they're talking to - make it recent, and show off your best side!
That having been said, using an app to get lucky also has its downsides. Putting out feelers for a casual hookup to strangers you haven't met yet can get dicey fairly quickly. Figuring out the right approach can take some time, too. You want to make your intentions known, but you need to do so in a way that doesn't come off too strong or make her feel uncomfortable. You'll need to exchange a few messages to see if you two are feeling each other, but you don't want to become pen pals with someone you're just trying to get it on with, either.
You’ll start getting profile views and messages within moments of signing up on Flirt.com, but unless you pay, you won’t be able to reciprocate any real actions. The welcome screen of your account displays a variety of other profiles for you to browse instantly, while notifications in the top navigation bar keep you posted on activities relating to you.
Sometimes, half the battle of finding a willing hookup buddy involves proximity. Even when you're filtering through matches that are extremely close to you, the inconveniences of city transportation can thwart your best efforts at sealing the deal. Enter Happn, an app that connects matches based on the places you both frequent (the gimmick being that you both could have, if the timing were right, passed one another on the street at some point without knowing it). While this isn't strictly a hookup app, taking advantage of a platform that curates your matches based on locations that you frequent makes for a convenient way to facilitate meeting somewhere that's centrally located and convenient for both of you.
Don't be put off by the name: Hinge is the newest kid on the dating game block, known as the relationship app. To set up a profile, you need more than just photos and a one-line bio. Instead, you must answer three questions (e.g. "My childhood crush...Andrew Garcia") and potential matches can 'like' your answers and start up a conversation. Hurrah to the end of swiping.
