4 Dating Apps Where The Women Call The Shots

It’s no secret that dating apps are breeding grounds for creeps. Suddenly you’re surrounded by shy creeps, aggressive creeps, and the infamous “you should be banned from all dating apps type of creep.” (You get where I’m going here). Ugh. It’s all so exhausting, yet strangely so addicting. What if I told you that there are new and better apps that allow women to be in the driver seat and filter out the men from the boys. Too good to be true? Check out my top 4 dating apps designed for women looking to travel the road to true love. Buckle up boys!

1. Bumble

At first glance, Bumble seems to resemble Tinder’s method. You swipe left, you swipe right and bam you’ve found your perfect match (or so you think)! The reality is the faster he swipes the more likely you are to be one out of 20 girls he’s matched with over his lunch break. Buzz kill!! (Pun intended.)

His message, “hey beautiful,” doesn’t feel so special now, does it? Of course not! On a positive note, Bumble allows for women to take control of the conversation and interact with whomever they want, whenever they want without the unwanted harassment. Ladies, trust me, the buzz you’e been hearing is true. Bumble provides the damage control we all need and the selection isn’t too shabby either. Download Bumble & get your stingers ready!

2. The League

Are you looking for a guy who is on your level intellectually? Or in your “league,” so to speak. Then this app is for you. Unlike many of the other binge swiping apps, “The League” connects your Linkedin profiles to provide you with potential matches. Finally there’s an app that helps women differentiate dapper men from the deprived. Your days (or should I say dates) with jobless couch severs are now over. Women tested, mothers approved.

3. Hinge

Ahh… my personal favorite. Why? Because it allows me to play my favorite role, Detective! If you’re anything like me, ( and most girls are) you know that becoming a detective can be quite time consuming, yet very necessary if you’re looking for someone special. As someone who is commitment minded, you need to know the “hard facts” before you commit to another bar crawl with “Brody from Brooklyn.” Well, ladies..HINGE makes the investigation process easy. With just one phone call to your mutual friend you can get the inside scoop to your mystery match. HINGE matches you with friends of friends, your curiosity is now answered and hopefully your interest is peaked! Case closed.

4. Wyldfire

Much like it’s name, this app is spreading fast and for good reason. Imagine a dating app that allows women to control who comes in and who stays out. Sounds a little like a door man, (minus the muscles). Intrigued? Well, you should be, this exclusive app is only for those guys that can get passed the “velvet rope.” Wlydefire provides men with strict guidelines to follow. They’re welcome to download the app, but to join they must either be invited or request access from a female user via SMS. Get in line boys! The ladies of Wlydefire have a strict door policy.
