i OS Android If you’re a gay, bi, trans, or queer person, then there’s no better place than Grindr.
Dating apps kind of suck — just ask anyone who’s ever used one — but in an age increasingly dominated by screens, both large and small, there’s no better way to boost your chances in your quest for fun or love.
The stigma toward dating apps is fading, and these apps are quickly becoming the normal way to meet and connect with other single people.
Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
You can also link Tinder to your Instagram account, and include info about your employer and/or school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if you’re logged in through your Facebook account).
After creating a username, you’ll start filling out a very long profile, to which you can link to your Instagram account.
You can answer questions, giving both your answer and what you’d like your potential match’s answer to be — this creates a percentile score for users that reflects compatibility.
That will set you back a month though, so it’s quite the investment.

Sign-up is easy — you can either choose to enter your details in the old-fashioned way by filling in the form, or you can quickly sign-up with your Facebook account.
