Teen dating places
What's not: The app has only been around for a few months, so you may not find a ton of locals on there.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.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.But if you’d rather not leave it up to chance, you can scroll through profile photos and tap one to start a chat or leave a comment.But there are a few decent options — with stronger safety features and less of a sketchy hookup culture happening — out there for the under-21 crowd.Of course, that doesn’t mean these apps are 100% safe.
Victims of teen dating violence often keep the abuse a secret.
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.
Age limit: 18 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: This is another right-swiping app, but with a twist — Bumble has a “women make the first move” rule, which means you need to reach out within 24 hours or the match expires.
(In same-sex pairings, either person can make the first move.) This cuts down on the number of unsolicited D-pics and eggplant emojis, which is always a good thing.
What's not: If you’re not a fan of making the first move, this probably isn’t the app for you.
