This is easily the best dating app out there. Very few things are behind a pay wall. The preferences are great. They do an amazing job with vetting profiles and removing fakes. and the user interface is really nice to look at.

I never found any long term relationships from Tinder, but I always had fun and felt safe with everyone I met. The interface is good and has improved over the years. I never participated in the paid side and never was tempted to. I have found that lately there are more bots or fake accounts ://

Tinder is an absolute joke of a dating site. 98% of the profiles are either fake, girls just looking to be Instagram stars, or they live 5000 miles away from you in another country. The ones that are real, if you do happen to match with them, never respond after a few back and forth messages
