Dating trends have changed nowadays. Data and analytics now play an important role in finding the right partner for you. For all you singles out there, browse through dating apps and websites if you are looking for casual or stable relationships. You will now find customized dating apps catered to your specific needs. Pretty great how the age of data has completely transformed the course of dating, isn’t it?

These are some of the utility specific dating apps of 2018 that you can look into based on your preference. We have tried to identify the competitive edge of each of these apps. Without further ado, let’s take a look:


Zoosk is one of the global online dating platforms where dating is personalized based on the member’s needs. This platform continuously focuses on its Research and Development department to assess the dating scenarios, outcomes and individual personality traits to find the right dating partner for you. We like how they are constantly innovating with the dating trends and finding appropriate algorithms to find the right match. They even provide expert online dating advice and counselling.

Elite Singles

Elite Singles focuses on matching compatibility based on the personality type. The major difference of this website from other ones is the fact that they help find partners for career-driven individuals. Yes, those individuals who were so focused on their career that they couldn’t find someone to share their feelings with, now have Elite Singles to compensate for that lost time. They have a streamlined approach for finding the perfect match for you. It has proven to be quite successful in the past few years too. If you are into cougar dating, this platform has a separate segment for those individuals. Since this is different from conventional dating, this app makes sure that it understands the specifics of your needs and finds you a suitable match.


If you are looking for surprises, Match is just the right platform for you. It caters to your need for excitement, adventure, surprise and much more. The software has a chatbot that talks to you and tries to understand your relationship choices and needs. In fact, you can also get relationship and dating advice from this particular platform. In terms of ease or convenience, this app is the easiest to operate and understands its members’ hesitations. They even organize events such as ‘Singles Nights’ and many others where you can interact with eligible singles face to face.


eHarmony plans out every tiny detail for you. What sets it apart from other dating platforms is the fact that it does not only find a suitable match for you but also plans your date, communication method and schedules. You have to give a personality test so that the app understands what kind of relationships you are looking for. Then the app finds suitable matches for you and advises you on the date plan and preparation.


OurTime is pretty similar to the apps mentioned before. However, it offers a special segment for people over 50s. We found this particular feature quite rare in dating platforms. Youths have it easy with finding dates because of all their social gatherings and lifestyle, but for the more mature singles, it can become difficult to find a partner who shares the same values and needs. This special segment made OurTime app one of the top dating apps for 2018.


Tinder is more of a communication channel for dating. This app does not go through any compatibility tests. It only provides you the singles available in your location. If you like an individual and the individual likes you back on the app, this means that you are a match. The rest is up to you on how you communicate about your dating preferences and needs. This is different in a sense that it is more exciting since you get to know the person from the scratch without any prior data.

To Summarize

Each of these dating apps we have discussed here has a unique value proposition for you. Whether you are in your teens, 20s, 30s, 40s or more, there are dating apps suited to your age group and personal choices. Do not think that finding partners through dating apps is unnatural or something to be ashamed of. In fact, it is the modern way of finding both stable and casual relationships. If you know your needs and what you’re looking for in a partner, why go through the trouble of doing things the old traditional way? Save yourself some time and give these apps a try!

  1. I miss the good old days when you didn’t need dating apps and could just pick up a girl in a bar.
