Everyone knows someone who met their “forever person” though online dating — but not all dating sites are created equal. So, which are the best dating apps for 2020? The Kochava Collective, host of the largest independent mobile data marketplace, crunched the numbers to recommend a few sites based on the number of users. “We have data available on more than 7.5 billion devices,” says Jake Courtright, Kochava’s lead manager. “As part of this data set, we have ‘app graph’ information on these devices, which is essentially the list of apps installed on these devices. We took a look at all major dating apps in the Google Play and app stores, and then identified five apps that have the most installs within our data set.” Kochava also offered information on the age and sex breakdowns among the apps’ users, to give a fuller picture of who might be using them.
But five apps weren’t enough for us, so we also recommended a few of our favorites — dating apps that might fill in the gaps for users not covered by the five most-installed apps. Whether you’re looking for a casual fling, a rebound to get over a breakup, or your next long-term relationship, you can start by downloading one of these dating apps.
Best for Those Trying to Cast the Widest Net: Tinder
If You Want to Make the First Move: Bumble
On Bumble, women are in control — the ladies are the ones who get to initiate communication. Kochava says most of its users are in the 26- to 35-year-old age range, so it’s also good for younger daters.
For Daters Just Out of College: Plenty of Fish
Of the apps profiled by Kochava, this one had the youngest user base after Bumble, with more than half its users coming in under the age of 36. And, true to its name, the site claims to be one of the world’s largest dating platforms.
For Dating After 40: MeetMe
Kochava’s data shows that most of MeetMe’s users are in the 46- to 55-year-old demo, and its second-highest demo is the 55 to 65 bracket.
If You’re Looking for a Guy: Happn
For Those Who Need a Little Push: Coffee Meets Bagel
If you’re not a natural at online dating, Coffee Meets Bagel helps you through the process, offering icebreaking prompts and gentle reminders to respond to your waiting messages. “Bagels” are delivered every day at noon, so you’re not overwhelmed with matches all day.
For Dating After 50: Lumen
For People Who Can’t Make Decisions: Ship
If you always need to consult a gaggle of advisors before you make a choice, Ship lets your friends weigh in and vet your matches. That way, if your date is a bust, you can spread the blame around.
For People Who Are Over Tinder: Hinge
Hinge uses a swiping system similar to Tinder, but the site encourages better dates through a robust profile and matching algorithm. In that way, it’s more focused on finding relationships — in the site’s words, it’s the app that’s “designed to be deleted.”
