    Best Dating Apps of 2022

    We tested the most popular apps for dating to see which ones had the most user-friendly and fun experience while giving you the best shot at finding love during Covid-19. Here's what we found: 

  • img Expert
    1. With the largest pool of singles in the world, there have never been more fish in the sea
    2. No matter your orientation, you'll find tons of quality straight and LGBT singles in your area
    3. The clean and simple user interface delivers scientifically-matched singles based on your preferences

    I would like to try to change it's options of how the app opens. I also like 3 selections (like, save for later, & not like.) I keep seeing the same person that I am not sure of when want to see others. This get annoying when you see that same person every time you launch the app. I need three categories. Definitely not, maybe, & absolutely yes. This app does not accommodate that. My other thing is I'm a verbal person. I like it to be more friendly to talk to someone with out more fees.
  • Mac in customer service is awesome!! Feb 22, 2020

    By JCodyB77
    I just recently became a paying member about a month ago. I wasn’t finding very many matches, mostly due to the area I live in being smaller. I wasn’t getting very many responses despite me being very intentional about reaching out to what little potential matches I would find or receive. As a paying member I was offered free dating coaching. I decided to try it out. It was a Friday night and I had no other plans. LOL! Anyway, Mac answers the phone with a very friendly and encouraging tone, and we start chatting. We looked at my profile together, discussed what was great and what could be better, and discussed how I was reaching out to potential matches, and if I was saying the right things (I was 😉). We discussed demographics and other ways to increase traffic and responses. We also talked about the fact that there are a lot of people on the site that are not paying members. They can still read your messages, but they cannot respond. There is a service that they offer, for a monthly fee, where your matches can respond to your messages! We discussed this in detail as well. The phone session was very pleasant and I learned a lot. I was starting to get a bit discouraged, but Mac was great at encouraging and helping me out. Thanks again Mac!

    I found one relationship using Match and although it didn't work out, I am hopeful to find the one. Match gives me a lot of options and preferences of what I'm looking for. My only complaint is it is a bit more difficult to find those close by. Maybe its due to a small town or something within the app, but I still love this app and recommend it to all my single friends!
  • Very bad App Jan 24, 2022

    By Palm harbor Florida
    Got blocked for no reason at all! I had Match a long time ago and thought about giving it another try. I just signed up again but not as a paid Subscription. And people were sending me messages I can’t see because I am not a paid Member, so I can’t see their messages, and can’t reply to there messages unless you pay. I was trying to figure the app out, and I was Blocked for absolutely no reason at all! I called there customer service number and the lady said that I was going to get a email to unblock my account, I have not gotten any emails from match at all. So I called them back again and got another lady on the phone and she absolutely did not care at all. This time the customer service person said I have to wait 24 to 48 hours for someone to email me and fix this. I was just about to purchase a Subscription! Lucky I didn’t purchase anything from Match. Also why is it cheaper to purchase a subscription on the internet for $38? and on the app for $47? That’s just wrong for them to do that. Still waiting for Match to send me a email to unblock my account! Look at all the bad reviews on here about Match! Unfortunately what a terrible site it has turned out to be! Customer service is not good at all! A total wast of time.

    It's a decent app but much like the other reviews, it defeats the purpose of liking and matching with someone only to discover you MUST pay for a long term subscription in order to communicate with them. Offer shorter term lengths at a reasonable trial rate if you want my business, since that seems to be all the company is after. They advertise facilitating Matches not successfully meeting or dating those matches. Yes it's free to chat with Top Picks selected by Match. That aren't my top picks.
  • Will not let users delete their profiles Jun 17, 2020

    By Who would choose this nickname
    I am very disappointed that, unlike most other apps (e.g. Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid), Match does not allow you to delete your profile. You can cancel your subscription, or make your profile invisible, but you cannot delete it. This means that, (a) they’re keeping your data forever, and (b) they are creating incentives for you to return to the app. Dating apps make money by keeping people on the apps as long as possible - in this case, by luring people back to the app, because if you find love through their platform and delete your account, that’s the point where they stop profiting from you. Although the practice of not allowing users to delete their profile is not illegal as far as I can tell, it is essentially kidnapping of your data and your online identity. Even the much more casual apps like Tinder do not do what Match does. This hijacking mentality of Match disgusts me. UPDATE: Bumping from 1 to 3 stars as after contacting customer service, someone was able to delete my profile by hand. However, the process is still manual and in my case took approximately a week. It would be nice if this could be automated and users given the ability to do so themselves.

    I had a customer service/dating coach phone call with Bailey. I wanted help with updating my profile and how to approach/receive more messages online. She was VERY helpful and so encouraging!! She was so friendly!! She went over my pictures with me, and my entire profile. I just needed one more full-body picture and headshots taken by someone else instead of selfies. We went over my topics I answered. And the summary as well. She read the whole thing and gave specific suggestions like shortening it and adding details here and there. She was also very helpful/encouraging with some insecurities I had about online dating and just dating in general. We talked about various things and then she also told me to be confident, and while it’s a numbers game and it can be hard with ghosting/silence, to remember the end goal of being with the right person for me. She was great! I was feeling discouraged but she gave specific, helpful, candid feedback while being so encouraging and friendly! And I feel ready to keep going lol. I’m so glad I got Bailey as my dating coach on the phone!

    I feel better on this app than on previous apps, more thorough and safety is a big priority by all the information you provide. Hoping to meet a special man who I begin to know better. Thsnks for caring about our security. The only thing I do not care for is the people that don't include at least one photo. Other than that all is fine. Heard yo open up on profile, I prefer more in person or in a message. I.never thought I would use an app to meet someone but times have changed.

  • “Mac is Where it’s at!” (LOL I KNOW IT’S CORNY) Apr 23, 2020

    By D (4/23, 10:45am)
    So I came here to give my Match Coach a glowing review, just to be pleasantly surprised that he has this same impact on others as well! I called to receive consultation for general dating advice, such as moving too fast, not ignoring red flags (or intuition), and giving others the benefit of the doubt by being willing to engage in difficult conversations; all tips that Mac was able to provide! Mac was superb in his guidance and was able to offer the advice in a nonjudgmental and unbiased manner. He was also able to set a personal tone for the conversation while still maintaining a high level of professionalism. Truly, there is no wonder as to why his experiences with other customers has already been highlighted as a “top rating”, and I couldn’t agree more! I hope he is recognized internally for his expertise in this field, especially since a lot of people are looking to connect online these days (#Quarantine 😩). Thank you very much for your service, Mac! Keep up the good work, the world needs you! Lol P.S. 5 Stars are not enough!!

    Too few "matches" out there. Would be nice to have a "friend" button first instead of like. Some kind of interim button that says you're interested. Profiles in general need more info. That should be a requirement not an option. Facial picture needs to be in focus, up close, and current. You allow too distant of pics. Lastly, you need to encourage more subscribers by offering a better price for beginners. You have too few people on here.

    I'm going days without a match. Having difficulty maneuvering through the app. I keep changing my preferences but still no matches within the distance I put in. Or the age range I put in.. always much older.. I added 35 miles out, keep getting people 60-70 miles away. Also, they keep wanting me to buy more likes, that sort of thing. I can't go any further without needing to pay more. I bought the premium pack $150.00. I shouldn't have to keep paying to search or like other's. Horrible.
  • Materialistic app Mar 29, 2021

    By Valle Fresco
    I’ve used many apps and most of them are full of bots , match is good in the sense that there are real people . My issue is that I am not rich or “successful” and just a person tired of being contacted by bots or scammers and match seems to control that . My issue is that they are not inviting to regular people who are looking for love and not just materialistic things. I am in between finances and it seems that only well off people use this app . I paid for 6 months and I see a buncha models looking for their lawyer or doctor person cuz they want financial freedom . It’s frustrating because everyone’s story is different but as a person who’s trying to look for a connection and not just appearances , you get overlooked . It saddens me that this is what we’ve come to. It’s a measuring contest of who has more to show than the next person . Ima let my 6 months run out and I’m done because it’s not about the inside , it’s about the outside and how much money you have in the bank. I’m disappointed. I wear my heart on my sleeve and use honesty but it’s not enough. But if you have money and are money bags you will find plenty of people willing to take your money . I would like for once to find a dating app that just deals with connection rather than “what can you provide for me financially” . It’s best for those who already have money and established , not so much for the underdogs with big hearts who just want a chance at love

    The most glitchy app I have. Even when it does work, it's slow. On top of it all, I bought the premium membership and they still don't provide unrestricted access to all features unless you add additional money on top of the already premium price. Pretty scammy. Not thrilled with it and I won't be renewing.
  • Hungry money thieves Jan 25, 2021

    By Wan Yun Lee
    If you think by buying the monthly subscription will get you a chance to meet someone and start a conversation out of nowhere, here’s the catch; Too many profiles with stolen photos, their moderator is set for you to believe that your profile is VIEWED also when you send a simple GREETING nobody answers. Did couple of experiments. Posted my photos “I am a good looking person, I do modeling” For one day my account after a certain amount of time sending messages the system stopped functioning properly, then all I was getting on my feed bunch of heavy set looking people xxxxL. There’s no point in buying a subscription; CALIFORNIA people you have 3 days to CANCEL if you want your money reimbursement other than that you gave away your money to the money hungry thieves. I have couple of friends who have tried this dating site and the same experiences; there are no real people and even if they’re out there in the system nobody is paying for messaging someone. If you still have doubts about it; this is a money making app too many profiles with moderators making it seem that it’s real people out there wanting to chat or make it seem that you’re not alone in their money making system. DONT GIVEN YOUR MONEY FOR FREE. For the people that pay subscriptions it’s a minority in 48 states and nobody in the real world in your neighborhood are subscribed....if you live in the big cities, don’t expect to find too many people, expect the fake accounts in a vast majority.
  • Algorithm problem? Oct 22, 2019

    By jjjjaaaayyy
    I’m updating my review to tell you all how bad the “free” version is.... you can’t see anything, do anything, send messages or receive message or read anything or talk to anyone or ANYTHING!! And they charge a freaking fortune!! $40 stupid dollars to send a sentence to someone? This is bull****. All the other apps at least let you send a sentence. Or if they want you to pay it’s not $40 freaking dollars. I’m a “woman seeking woman” and tons of men show up in my filters. So I talked to them and they said “oh you need to report those profiles...” so I did... over and over and over again. Probably 40-50 reports so far? Waste of my time. I edited my profile once and added some info about my likes and it got denied. After the staff reviewed my edit and denied it, they said I was “revealing too much personal information”....ummmm I added that I liked hiking. So if you can review and deny edits such as mine you can review and deny profiles of men posing as women.... Also I get the same people cycled through my “discover now” tab. So people I have X’d out multiple times keep showing up in my search. And also people I have “liked” or messaged also keep showing up so in order to get past it I have to either like or X them once again. And I’m paying for this? When I reported these issues they weren’t much help. Fix your algorithm. And the men showing up are the most annoying. Review demographics.... as much as you reviewed my “I like hiking” and denied my edit.

    Not the worst but still pretty bad. There are too many tiers and like other apps the only times that you seem to get noticed is when your subscription lapses. Of course the only way to see these notices is to resubscribe. But after you resubscribe, everything stops again. Not to mention the people that do reach out to you all of a sudden block you with no explanation just for saying hi. It has happened at least three times. Dunno why I keep coming back. Shame on me. BEWARE!! For shame!
  • Inconsistent Apr 18, 2022

    By COman20
    Had this for about 8 months between the premium and standard subscription, and I’ll say I only had success with meeting one person that had Genuine interest. My issue was the inconsistencies. It seemed like a had a few matches but when reaching out with a message I would get few reply’s, to some at which I was curious if these were just bot accounts. After some time I just stopped using it on weeks end. Recently, I did a renewal (by accident) because I didn’t intend on auto renewal to be active so here I am with another month. The past week though I was actually getting quite a few matches, and ones that seemed like Actual matches with similar interest. Long story short I had a match that finally seemed worthwhile and we had a lot of common as she said the same to. Finally, I was thinking to myself that this match thing was all worth it and it just takes time to get good matches. Buttttt moments later i check my messages to come to find I was unmatched…The thing is I find that I meet more people at the gym, work, or general public rather than what my experience was on here. Sure, everyone is likely to get unmatched quite a few times, but for me it was more about having inconsistent non responsive matches and then having one match just go down the drain after spending a lengths time talking. Surly not worth it for the price you pay . This overall was not my cup of tee.

    Match has been a very disappointing experience. I paid for the upgraded service I still was not allowed to see who viewed me. Even with the paid subscription, you are limited on how you can message people. It's not worth paying for any level of available subscriptions. Absolutely would not recommend anybody to pay let alone be on the site for free
  • Don’t use these crooks. Poorest service of all Jan 12, 2022

    By Iphonereviews2021
    Beware they will suddenly shut your account down without warning or explanation. Even though you broke no policies. They claim you did but when you call for customer service you get nothing but a run around. When you leave a review they contact you as if they are concerned and want you to email them. You email them and they do nothing but continue the termination of your account. They stole my money that I paid for subscriptions. They are nothing but legalized crooks in my book. The lowest customer service around. They won’t contact you to ask about any concerns first. That’s a poor way to do business. Espionage a paying subscriber. I sent my number after a lengthy conversation and apparently they thought they knew more than me about when and who to send my number to. Sorry but that’s the customers business, not for Match to decide. So I called and went through the verification process and they still couldn’t unlock it. They contacted me saying I violated the policy. What did I do Fife? Answer me! I’ll get up in your face down in Texas. I was a legal person. You had my legal information. I never sent anything in a message that was sexual or any such thing. All I did was give someone my phone number and you instantly shut me down. I was a paid subscriber. You bunch of low down crooks!!! Fine! I’m on multiple other sites. Do something!!!

    Been on for a few months, most if not all profiles view you but never match or reply back; even subscribers and new subscribers. Seems like a lot of bots to keep you paying, swiping, and hoping for a response and match. I do not recommend. When I went to unsubscribe, it took 3 attempts to unsubscribe, kept giving me errors. When I went to delete my account, it wouldn't let me. Instead it kicked me of the app and when reloading app, tried to get me to create new. Sus.

    I found one relationship using Match and although it didn't work out, I am hopeful to find the one. Match gives me a lot of options and preferences of what I'm looking for. My only complaint is it is a bit more difficult to find those close by. Maybe its due to a small town or something within the app, but I still love this app and recommend it to all my single friends!
  • Very bad App Jan 24, 2022

    Got blocked for no reason at all! I had Match a long time ago and thought about giving it another try. I just signed up again but not as a paid Subscription. And people were sending me messages I can’t see because I am not a paid Member, so I can’t see their messages, and can’t reply to there messages unless you pay. I was trying to figure the app out, and I was Blocked for absolutely no reason at all! I called there customer service number and the lady said that I was going to get a email to unblock my account, I have not gotten any emails from match at all. So I called them back again and got another lady on the phone and she absolutely did not care at all. This time the customer service person said I have to wait 24 to 48 hours for someone to email me and fix this. I was just about to purchase a Subscription! Lucky I didn’t purchase anything from Match. Also why is it cheaper to purchase a subscription on the internet for $38? and on the app for $47? That’s just wrong for them to do that. Still waiting for Match to send me a email to unblock my account! Look at all the bad reviews on here about Match! Unfortunately what a terrible site it has turned out to be! Customer service is not good at all! A total wast of time.

    It's a decent app but much like the other reviews, it defeats the purpose of liking and matching with someone only to discover you MUST pay for a long term subscription in order to communicate with them. Offer shorter term lengths at a reasonable trial rate if you want my business, since that seems to be all the company is after. They advertise facilitating Matches not successfully meeting or dating those matches. Yes it's free to chat with Top Picks selected by Match. That aren't my top picks.
  • Will not let users delete their profiles Jun 17, 2020

    By Who would choose this nickname
    I am very disappointed that, unlike most other apps (e.g. Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid), Match does not allow you to delete your profile. You can cancel your subscription, or make your profile invisible, but you cannot delete it. This means that, (a) they’re keeping your data forever, and (b) they are creating incentives for you to return to the app. Dating apps make money by keeping people on the apps as long as possible - in this case, by luring people back to the app, because if you find love through their platform and delete your account, that’s the point where they stop profiting from you. Although the practice of not allowing users to delete their profile is not illegal as far as I can tell, it is essentially kidnapping of your data and your online identity. Even the much more casual apps like Tinder do not do what Match does. This hijacking mentality of Match disgusts me. UPDATE: Bumping from 1 to 3 stars as after contacting customer service, someone was able to delete my profile by hand. However, the process is still manual and in my case took approximately a week. It would be nice if this could be automated and users given the ability to do so themselves.

    Too few "matches" out there. Would be nice to have a "friend" button first instead of like. Some kind of interim button that says you're interested. Profiles in general need more info. That should be a requirement not an option. Facial picture needs to be in focus, up close, and current. You allow too distant of pics. Lastly, you need to encourage more subscribers by offering a better price for beginners. You have too few people on here.
  • Materialistic app Mar 29, 2021

    By Valle Fresco
    I’ve used many apps and most of them are full of bots , match is good in the sense that there are real people . My issue is that I am not rich or “successful” and just a person tired of being contacted by bots or scammers and match seems to control that . My issue is that they are not inviting to regular people who are looking for love and not just materialistic things. I am in between finances and it seems that only well off people use this app . I paid for 6 months and I see a buncha models looking for their lawyer or doctor person cuz they want financial freedom . It’s frustrating because everyone’s story is different but as a person who’s trying to look for a connection and not just appearances , you get overlooked . It saddens me that this is what we’ve come to. It’s a measuring contest of who has more to show than the next person . Ima let my 6 months run out and I’m done because it’s not about the inside , it’s about the outside and how much money you have in the bank. I’m disappointed. I wear my heart on my sleeve and use honesty but it’s not enough. But if you have money and are money bags you will find plenty of people willing to take your money . I would like for once to find a dating app that just deals with connection rather than “what can you provide for me financially” . It’s best for those who already have money and established , not so much for the underdogs with big hearts who just want a chance at love

    It should not be this hard to delete a dating app. I've tried several times and have asked to change my password so I can then open and "manage" my subscription but match does not email you the change in password as they say they're going to do. Very frustrating and I'm sure it is intentional.

    I'm just biding my time for this subscription to end. There should be a way to politely decline someone instead of just swiping no and they continue to attempt to connect until you are forced to block them. I see the same profiles cycle through and of the few "connections" I've made they never progressed from the app. I allowed the advisor to attempt connections and not only did they not function in the timeframe advertised, they stopped making suggestions after 4 people. Waste of my money/time.

    Was gonna sign up, before reading the reviews and talking to a buddy who is on the site. Not letting users know who is/isn't a paying member, it's probably the worst. Also, requiring auto-renewal and a lengthy process to cancel, is bad practice. Non-upgraded members are essentially without the additional features, those features are essential. My buddy has been on the site 6 months, only had 2 dates, and it has cost him hundreds of dollars. Pass.

    I'm going days without a match. Having difficulty maneuvering through the app. I keep changing my preferences but still no matches within the distance I put in. Or the age range I put in.. always much older.. I added 35 miles out, keep getting people 60-70 miles away. Also, they keep wanting me to buy more likes, that sort of thing. I can't go any further without needing to pay more. I bought the premium pack $150.00. I shouldn't have to keep paying to search or like other's. Horrible.

    The most glitchy app I have. Even when it does work, it's slow. On top of it all, I bought the premium membership and they still don't provide unrestricted access to all features unless you add additional money on top of the already premium price. Pretty scammy. Not thrilled with it and I won't be renewing.
  • Hungry money thieves Jan 25, 2021

    By Wan Yun Lee
    If you think by buying the monthly subscription will get you a chance to meet someone and start a conversation out of nowhere, here’s the catch; Too many profiles with stolen photos, their moderator is set for you to believe that your profile is VIEWED also when you send a simple GREETING nobody answers. Did couple of experiments. Posted my photos “I am a good looking person, I do modeling” For one day my account after a certain amount of time sending messages the system stopped functioning properly, then all I was getting on my feed bunch of heavy set looking people xxxxL. There’s no point in buying a subscription; CALIFORNIA people you have 3 days to CANCEL if you want your money reimbursement other than that you gave away your money to the money hungry thieves. I have couple of friends who have tried this dating site and the same experiences; there are no real people and even if they’re out there in the system nobody is paying for messaging someone. If you still have doubts about it; this is a money making app too many profiles with moderators making it seem that it’s real people out there wanting to chat or make it seem that you’re not alone in their money making system. DONT GIVEN YOUR MONEY FOR FREE. For the people that pay subscriptions it’s a minority in 48 states and nobody in the real world in your neighborhood are subscribed....if you live in the big cities, don’t expect to find too many people, expect the fake accounts in a vast majority.
  • Algorithm problem? Oct 22, 2019

    By jjjjaaaayyy
    I’m updating my review to tell you all how bad the “free” version is.... you can’t see anything, do anything, send messages or receive message or read anything or talk to anyone or ANYTHING!! And they charge a freaking fortune!! $40 stupid dollars to send a sentence to someone? This is bull****. All the other apps at least let you send a sentence. Or if they want you to pay it’s not $40 freaking dollars. I’m a “woman seeking woman” and tons of men show up in my filters. So I talked to them and they said “oh you need to report those profiles...” so I did... over and over and over again. Probably 40-50 reports so far? Waste of my time. I edited my profile once and added some info about my likes and it got denied. After the staff reviewed my edit and denied it, they said I was “revealing too much personal information”....ummmm I added that I liked hiking. So if you can review and deny edits such as mine you can review and deny profiles of men posing as women.... Also I get the same people cycled through my “discover now” tab. So people I have X’d out multiple times keep showing up in my search. And also people I have “liked” or messaged also keep showing up so in order to get past it I have to either like or X them once again. And I’m paying for this? When I reported these issues they weren’t much help. Fix your algorithm. And the men showing up are the most annoying. Review demographics.... as much as you reviewed my “I like hiking” and denied my edit.

    Not the worst but still pretty bad. There are too many tiers and like other apps the only times that you seem to get noticed is when your subscription lapses. Of course the only way to see these notices is to resubscribe. But after you resubscribe, everything stops again. Not to mention the people that do reach out to you all of a sudden block you with no explanation just for saying hi. It has happened at least three times. Dunno why I keep coming back. Shame on me. BEWARE!! For shame!
  • Inconsistent Apr 18, 2022

    By COman20
    Had this for about 8 months between the premium and standard subscription, and I’ll say I only had success with meeting one person that had Genuine interest. My issue was the inconsistencies. It seemed like a had a few matches but when reaching out with a message I would get few reply’s, to some at which I was curious if these were just bot accounts. After some time I just stopped using it on weeks end. Recently, I did a renewal (by accident) because I didn’t intend on auto renewal to be active so here I am with another month. The past week though I was actually getting quite a few matches, and ones that seemed like Actual matches with similar interest. Long story short I had a match that finally seemed worthwhile and we had a lot of common as she said the same to. Finally, I was thinking to myself that this match thing was all worth it and it just takes time to get good matches. Buttttt moments later i check my messages to come to find I was unmatched…The thing is I find that I meet more people at the gym, work, or general public rather than what my experience was on here. Sure, everyone is likely to get unmatched quite a few times, but for me it was more about having inconsistent non responsive matches and then having one match just go down the drain after spending a lengths time talking. Surly not worth it for the price you pay . This overall was not my cup of tee.

    Match has been a very disappointing experience. I paid for the upgraded service I still was not allowed to see who viewed me. Even with the paid subscription, you are limited on how you can message people. It's not worth paying for any level of available subscriptions. Absolutely would not recommend anybody to pay let alone be on the site for free
  • Don’t use these crooks. Poorest service of all Jan 12, 2022

    By Iphonereviews2021
    Beware they will suddenly shut your account down without warning or explanation. Even though you broke no policies. They claim you did but when you call for customer service you get nothing but a run around. When you leave a review they contact you as if they are concerned and want you to email them. You email them and they do nothing but continue the termination of your account. They stole my money that I paid for subscriptions. They are nothing but legalized crooks in my book. The lowest customer service around. They won’t contact you to ask about any concerns first. That’s a poor way to do business. Espionage a paying subscriber. I sent my number after a lengthy conversation and apparently they thought they knew more than me about when and who to send my number to. Sorry but that’s the customers business, not for Match to decide. So I called and went through the verification process and they still couldn’t unlock it. They contacted me saying I violated the policy. What did I do Fife? Answer me! I’ll get up in your face down in Texas. I was a legal person. You had my legal information. I never sent anything in a message that was sexual or any such thing. All I did was give someone my phone number and you instantly shut me down. I was a paid subscriber. You bunch of low down crooks!!! Fine! I’m on multiple other sites. Do something!!!

    Been on for a few months, most if not all profiles view you but never match or reply back; even subscribers and new subscribers. Seems like a lot of bots to keep you paying, swiping, and hoping for a response and match. I do not recommend. When I went to unsubscribe, it took 3 attempts to unsubscribe, kept giving me errors. When I went to delete my account, it wouldn't let me. Instead it kicked me of the app and when reloading app, tried to get me to create new. Sus.

    So far, not great. This is my second attempt on this app. For starters, it's buggier than I remember. People are showing up in my likes list that I did NOT like, and the only way to remove them is to block them, which feels a little extreme to me. Secondly, last time I used it, you could see who read your messages for free, but now you have to PAY just for that tiny little feature on top of a preexisting subscription. Not a fan of the bugs and microtransactions, but will update if things improve
