Bristlr also provides a beard-rating option, so you can find out how well a potential date's beard ranks compared to other bearded locals." The service was created by software developer John Kershaw. Instead of letting you cast the net wide and potentially drag in a few weirdos alongside the good catches, Hinge keeps it a little more reserved.The 28-year-old from Manchester said he came up with the idea “as a joke” but it seems like it may be taking off further than he expected. It's a great app for those who are looking for meaningful relationships.The catch is that even when a man matches with a woman, the woman has to initiate the first message. This is one of the most popular dating apps with women–so men should take note.This app isn’t a dating app in the traditional sense.
Once you read the message and secretly like them, if they like you back you’ll then be greeted with a full selection of their photos and you can be as judgemental as you’d like. This is the app that could be considered the “anti-Tinder”.The only prerequisite is that if you’re a man, you must have a beard.Women can join the dating app as well but all the men on board Bristlr are going to have beards so you better be into your facial fuzz.But, saying that, you know what they say about patience: it’s a virtue -- plus, good things apparently come to those who wait too, so maybe this is a good thing after all? There’s a huge variety of users, so everybody should be able to find somebody on it.One of the more polished setups, OK Cupid has TONS of users regardless of where you are in the world. The website is pretty decent too, and if you upgrade your profile you get access to a bunch of unique features like being able to see who likes you and anonymous browsing.
