I am looking for products using which I can message people near me and make new connections.
- You need be over 21 for this app because it involves alcohol. It also costs $20, but you get a free drink and a pre-planned night out of it. You go on a Grouper date with two of your trusty friends in tow to meet up with three other people. Grouper specifies the place and time of the meetup based on your schedules. Your gang shows up, the other gang shows up, ya'll have a drink together and give it a few minutes to see if any sparks fly.
- Coffee Meets Bagel is unique because you can only view one person's profile -- which the app chooses for you -- per day. You can either "like" or "pass" on this person, and if you both "like" each other you're set up with a temporary phone line to text. If you're too busy to scroll through the infinite number of potential matches on most dating sites, CMB could be a good option.
