Tinder: Tinder is a great way to meet people in your area but, like so much of the dating world, it has major problems. These include creeps, bots, ghosting and unwanted dick pics, as well as a slew of other issues. Still, its success has helped spawn a wide variety of copycats that offer alternative options. While none of these apps have the same amount of users in the university age range as Tinder, they give an imaginative spin on the usual formual and can provide some interesting experiences.
