Here are some new-age apps that serve the digital era while also ensuring consent
With dating platforms becoming more popular in India now that the culture is being welcomed more openly, here are some new-age apps that serve the digital era while also ensuring consent:
Not So Arranged
Not So Arranged, which aims to be India’s most trusted online dating site, has features that enable Indians all over the world to find matches. Co-founded by sisters Tanisha Ghura Kanani and Priyanka Ghura Kuka, Not So Arranged pairs users according to a Compatibility Quotient (CQ) engineered by their chief psychologist. The platform helps find the right match based on years of research and experience. All users go through a strict vetting process before matchmaking.
Tinder, one of the world’s and India’s popular dating apps, is among the most popular dating sites. The app promises total privacy, ease in registration and navigation, and user-friendliness. Its algorithm also allows the matching of partners easily, reportedly in less than two minutes. The filters also allow users to find partners better.

TrulyMadly is another platform that allows people to come together after getting matched based on interests and psychology. The site also offers options for socialising online and getting friends or connecting with other like-minded people.
Bumble, another widely-used app allows users to meet people online depending on what they are looking for, be it friendship or relationships, or even work on networking for professional reasons. Interestingly, this was one-of-the-first platforms that encouraged women to make the first move, by ensuring that only women are given the option to text/initiate a conversation first, after a match. If a female user does not initiate any conversation within 24 hours of the match, the match disappears.

Happn, which claims to be one of the most happening dating apps, reportedly aids in letting users connect with those they have met earlier. If you have met a Happn user, you can see their profile on the app. If the profile interests you, you could go ahead and like it. Unless they are interested in your profile, other users won’t know about you. You match if they too show interest in you and like your profile.
