They say there's plenty of fish in the sea, but for whatever reason, the sea of dating apps appears to be lacking plenty.
With the meteoric rise and virality of apps like Tinder, Grindr, and the ever-popular Ok Cupid, it would appear the pool of smartphone dating is a small one. The pool of prospective dates and bed buddies is larger than a five-block radius. You want to casually drop a line (and a wink) to a Facebook "friend"?
To help answer that question, keep the following in mind: Free sites are geared toward casual daters, while paid sites tend to be for people looking for a serious relationship.
Of course, it’s not always that simple, and there are exceptions.
My wife still tells me she finds me physically attractive and I exercise regularly to keep fit and stay attractive to her so I know that my appearance isn't the issue.
