Dating service teen
With that said — if you’re ready to give online dating a shot, here are a few teen-friendly options.
Age limit: 17 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Skout’s “shake to chat” feature — shake your phone and get randomly paired in a chat with someone nearby — is basically the online-dating-app equivalent of randomly bumping into your soulmate at a coffee shop, rom-com-style.
Age limit: none Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Okay, so this isn’t technically a dating app — but it can make “offline” dating a little less awkward, and that’s everything.Age limit: 12 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Yubo, formerly known as Yellow, feels kind of like a cross between Tinder and Snapchat — you can swipe right on profiles that look interesting and chat via live video.The app has also added a bunch of safety features, like cell phone verification to keep fake profiles from cluttering up the site — but creepers can own cell phones too, so you still have to be careful.You can tweak your profile so you never have to worry about flubbing your first impression.And your pool of potential crushes isn’t limited to the handful of people you see at school every single day, so you have way more options.Whether you’re 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, or 19, these sites will put you in front of the right crowd and won’t use up all of your food and going out money!If you’re an 18- or 19-year-old and you’re on your phone all the time, you’ll love Zoosk. Ok Cupid is free to join, free to search, and free to message. Online dating definitely has its perks — it makes it way less intimidating to approach someone you’re into, especially if you’re on the shy side.What's not: The swipe feature can make it feel pretty superficial, and while it’s supposed to be geared towards making new friends, a lot of people use it as a casual hookup site.Also, the Android version is missing a few key features — so if you don’t have an i Phone, you may want to skip it for now.
