Why Tinder and Bumble are bad for dating online? (top 3 reasons)

Dating app that dominate right now in the world:

1. Tinder

2. Bumble

3. OkCupid 

4. Match.com

5. Hinge

6. Badoo

All of them have the same search approach – swiping, swiping, swiping, matching, matching, matching.

There’s a lot of choice when it comes to navigating the dating app pool and, as we all know, finding romance is a bit more complicated than a simple swiping right (or left) of the thumb on Tinder.

Reason #1. Swiping – matching

Random swiping doesn’t give you a freedom of choice. You should only rely on machine generator. It’s a very strange approach, that should protect people against sexual content messages, fraud, spam. But basically – not.

SOLUTION: In ABODVA is used classic approach, when you could see all profiles with filters. But you can write only 3 messages per day, and 15 with premium account. It allows to minimise such kind of messages.

Plus, the strategy of Tinder-like apps with such kind is a common: purchase the premium account -> swipe all profiles -> choose the most beautiful profiles and unmatch not interesting -> write to matched profiles.

Reason #2 – Fake profiles

Romance scammers create fake profiles on dating sites and apps, or contact their targets through popular social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, or Google Hangouts. The scammers strike up a relationship with their targets to build their trust, sometimes talking or chatting several times a day. Then, they make up a story and ask for money.

Or just profiles with photos from other profiles or photo stocks, and low-quality photos, and without photos. Photos with the best friends, that could be annoying to identify who is who. Profile photos with dogs, cats, skies, trees, etc. Or just trash photos.

Small tip.

Check the profile picture looks realistic. Professional photos should be a red flag – especially if they look like a model. Look for amateur photos and check if they have more than one.

A helpful Which? member recommended using tineye.com to check the legitimacy of profile pictures on dating websites. 

This website allows you to upload photographs and uses recognition technology to see if there are matches to the photo anywhere else on the internet.

Check that the profile on the dating website is consistent with what you’ve been told. For example, make sure the profile picture doesn’t look different to their description of themselves.

SOLUTION: ABODVA solves it by only manual moderation of each profile, and checking of each video that uploaded by the user to our app.

It helps to keep our user database in a clean way, that allows you to concentrate on search, but not filtering the users.

Reason #3 – Photos, but not videos

Voice and facial impressions – are the main information that we received from the another person during our first face-to-face meeting. In most cases, our guess-work about how the person will be look like ofter are false.

SOLUTION: With application ABODVA you can see a person as if in the first 7 seconds of your real meeting. And you already know his/her voice, facial expression, and  what your first talk will start with. You  needn’t  beg to give a phone number or turn on the webcam. Create a real first impression about a person via short video.


Online dating has replaced meeting partners through friends, family, work or other personal connections. Most heterosexual couples today meet online. ABODVA will help to make dating online more easier.
