Mobile Dating App Facts (Updated In 2018)

Time to get started…

Looking at Mobile Phone Numbers

Millions of people use cellphones daily

Let’s do a little math. According to a statistical study, there are currently 237.6 million people in the United States with smartphones. With that in mind, the census bureau says that 110.6 million Americans are single. What does this tell us? Well, for starters, it means that you should be using your smartphone to hook up. There are far too many single people out there with perfectly good phones to waste your time trying to score at the bar, or with second cousins at family reunions.

The Numbers Don’t Lie End

The Numbers Don't Lie

There are tens of thousands of dating apps on the market and all of them can be used by anyone with even the slightest understanding of how they work. The best thing about them is that they often service specific niches rather than the scattershot approach traditional dating sites use. Plenty of the apps out there are for hookups only, and the people who use them are practically begging to get laid.

The iOS App Avoids

Worst iOS dating apps of all time

Of course, that’s not to say that all apps are created equal. A recent study ranked the five worst iOS apps and they’re certainly ones to avoid.

5. Grindr Xtra
4. Hinge
3. eHarmony
2. Flirt – Yes, it’s even worse than Flirty9.
1. Mamba

Whatever you do, just be sure to avoid ALL five of these apps as they are legit the absolute worst ever. In fact, the only one you need to use is this one – right here.

So how do you flirt once you’ve got yourself set up on an app? Well, you’re probably going to be speaking in emojis; since they’re the official language of the known universe at this point. Some are safe to use, but others should be avoided at all costs. For instance, never use the eggplant followed by the squirting water. It’s been done. Worse than that, it’s presumptuous. If you want to imply an ejaculating penis in your message, then find a better way of doing it. Using the same emojis that a grinning high school kid would use won’t get you anywhere, especially not into someone’s pants.

Safe Emoji Use

emojis you must avoid

Safe emojis are plentiful, though. For instance, pizza emojis always make you happy. If you want to ask someone out on a reasonably inexpensive date, this is the way to do it. Blushing emojis and faces with hearts for eyes always have a place when you’re trying to tell someone how they make you feel. Naturally, the kissing emoji will always get you somewhere because it looks cute and conveys a message. It’s the best of both worlds and can be taken with any level of seriousness when it comes to sex.

Dating App Conversation Etiquette 

dating app conversations matter a ton

However, when you message someone for the very first time, try to use your words. Don’t go in with a slew of tiny pictures that no one will understand. Say hello and talk about yourself, and ask plenty of question. Never start off by telling them you want to see tits or dicks. Never tell them you’re in love with them. It’s cheesy and people can always smell someone who’s desperate for a lay. Finally, the number one thing that you never want to start a conversation with is your ex. That’s your baggage, not theirs. You’ll come off as bitter and resentful, and no one wants to fuck that guy.

If these mobile dating facts don’t help you, please don’t shoot the messenger. I’ve put a lot of time and research into this so that you don’t have to. Simply move right along if you don’t approve. On the other hand, if you do feel the research is helpful, please share the data with others.
