Popular dating sites for college students

Across all American adults, use of dating apps tripled, though the raw numbers aren’t as impressive.

Forty-six percent of college graduates know people who met their spouse or partner online.Over the same period of time, use of Tinder, Hinge, and apps like them exploded.Just for reference, in February 2013, first covered Tinder, “a new mobile dating application…with a difference”; by January 2016, it could refer to “Tinder dates” without further explanation.Healthy majorities also agree that online dating is easier, more efficient, and helps people find better matches.(Which makes me wonder how much the idea of some matches being algorithmically better than others has been sold by online-dating companies.)Almost 30 percent of Americans know a long-term relationship which sprang from online dating; about 40 percent of them know someone who uses it.However, Tinder isn't the only free dating app on the market; here are five equally free and convenient dating apps geared toward college students.
