With countless swipes left and right, digital footprints, and social media filters, we might rightfully ask ourselves whether love is blind or dating app connections are. Not just any app will work. Here are some of the best ones to meet someone and hook up in LA.
This is a relatively new addition to the pool of dating apps available to people in LA. It’s built on a unique premise. You only get to see the profile picture after interacting with a profile. At the start, all profiles are blurred. As you communicate, the image starts to unblur.
Other than that, profile setup is pretty standard with information about education, job, or sector and more personal things like mood, hobbies, likes and dislikes, and personality. The introductory message is a key profile element.
Raya is a dating app for celebrities and wannabe celebrities as well as anyone who wants to date them. As you may suspect, there are many such people in LA. To sign up for the app, there is a rather lengthy waiting list. You also need a certain number of followers on social media to apply.
This is the best app for people who want to date young or middle-aged professionals and are looking for a serious relationship. Elite Singles’ intuitive matchmaking software helps people find compatible partners who they will want to see more than once. The members are all single professionals in the age range of 30 to 50.
This app subjects its users to a professional personality test. It’s not the kind of test you’d typically find online, such as “what’s your spirit animal.” The test analyzes not only personality but also lifestyle and future goals. The app also takes your location into account, as it should. Based on all of the information it collects, it matches you to singles who are the best fit. Of all the apps we tested, we find this one had the most comprehensive functions by far.
Finally, Pure is a sweet, user-friendly offering targeting casual daters in LA. It features cool art and a youthful vibe and does not allow nudes.
