The Absolute Best Dating Apps To Try If You're Swiping For Love In Lockdown

♫ The party don't stop cause you're locked in

377

The times have changed on how people search for love now. There is more selection going on within dating websites. It's the new "sexy" (and the only option now in the love-making business).

But hey, in the name of love and other hormonal emotions, why stop yourself from finding a mate just because you're in quarantine?

There are just so many options to choose from to find someone who will cherish and love you. To help you on your journey to get through these rough and dry times, here are a few suggestions of which dating apps to use.

1. Hinge

If you are looking for someone that personifies James Bond, has an engineering degree, and maintains a clean shave, then you have come to the right dating app. Honestly, this is the most sophisticated and clean app I have used. It is easy to start a conversation with someone and show the different sides of your personality.

Based on my observation, many other dating apps have followed what Hinge does and how it conducts itself. If you are looking for cleanliness, class, and some clever comments to start a conversation, then you are bound to find your James Bond.

2. Bumble

You will find the chill, lazy, and silent type on this app. You may find dudes that just want to meet you at a bar to "get to know you." It can be easy to start a conversation, but the person on the other end may become radio silent and you get nowhere.

However, the great thing about this app is that the ladies make the choice of who they want to talk to. It is an easy way to avoid the guys you may find unattractive or creepy. Women can buzz away and find the flower that smells the sweetest and looks the most beautiful (or handsome) while being away from the ones that may trap them.

3. Tinder

If you want to be thrown into the tiger's pit and look for your tiger king there, then you will find exactly what you are looking for and much more (or less!). My personal reference to this app is that it is a used pair of panties that should have been burned a long time ago, but alas, the beast lives on.

This app defines the new definition of "swiping." This app is easy, quick, and uncomplicated, you may come across a few bad apples here and there, but hey, it doesn't stop your drunk self at 2 a.m. from creating a profile and immediately starting to swipe left or right.

4. Facebook Dating

Honesty, this feels like a last resort, but if you're THAT desperate, sure, use it. No need to throw out the baby with the bathwater (or man or woman).

In my experience, it's like meeting a nerd who is confident in their own field of knowledge but actually doesn't know too much about the world.

Sometimes, the conversations get a bit dry, and when asked to connect through Facebook messenger, you awkwardly have to just leave the conversation because you are not interested in that person (you can't get rid of the match, only delete or block the match).

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
