The thought of online dating never occurred to me until I was asked to review apps in this category. Call me old school, but the idea of meeting strangers online and discussing things with them just doesn t click me. However, looking at the popularity of these online dating websites in India, I decided to experience the never before experienced arena myself. Needless to say, they are different from social networking platforms because of the fact that they have been specifically designed for dating people. It is unlikely that you missed the boy browsing ad of TrulyMadly on TV or the Woo ad that says Find magic, Find love. I liked the ads, but are the apps as appealing? I used four top dating apps over a week and based on my experience, here s what I have to say: Since you have already made up your mind to date online, why not do it the most ‘fun’ way.

TrulyMadly truly ensures that you have fun while chatting to people you have liked. I am saying this because the app offers a number of games like ‘Foodie Funda’, ‘Hocus Pocus’, ‘Styletastic’ etc. It even offers vivacious stickers to express things you might or might not be able to ‘describe in words’. One needs to obviously create a profile on the app first. You are required to fill in a few mandatory fields such as your date of birth, height, state, city, occupation and highest educational qualification.
The verification process may sound tedious, but there’s more to it. The app won’t allow you to start dating unless you have at least a 85 per cent verification score. Wondering how to achieve your 85 per cent? Well, here’s how. TrulyMadly assigns percentage to different mediums you log in with.

For example, I tried to create my account with Gmail id, which gave me only 65 per cent score and I could not log in. Logging in with your Facebook profile or Photo Id however gives the required 85 per cent score. Similarly, logging in with or with references only gives you a 65 per cent score. Percentage earned from adding your phone number is 65 per cent. So, finally when you log in to the app, it will provide you with people based on proximity as well as number of mutual friends in your Facebook profiles.
You can edit age range, height, state or city and the app will stick to your preferences by showing people from only that city or state and of that age, height that you choose. The app is designed in such a way that you can only see the names of those you choose to select and for the rest, only ‘xxx’ appears instead of name. The app works on a ‘Trust Score’ system, which lets people rate you on the basis of your interactions with them. Keeping in mind the safety concerns, it also gives you an option to switch on your profile visibility only to people who you choose to talk to. Let us come back to the cool games that we talked about above.
These games ask you a series (a short series) of questions related to the game you choose and displays your answers next to answers that your match chose. Styletastic quiz asks you questions like ‘what would you wear on a date’ or ‘how do you like your hair’ and gives you options like cool and casual or picture perfect etc. Think online dating and Tinder is among the first few apps that come to mind. Tinder therefore could not stay far behind in our list. It isn’t entirely similar to TrulyMadly as it gives you a number of settings through which you can date ‘differently’.
First up, to log in, you need to have a Facebook account. It banks on the Facebook verification process, which can be used to create a profile on Tinder as well.
