Online student dating
You are shown a headshot of another Tinder user who is currently nearby: Swipe right if you’re interested, swipe left if you aren’t.

Here’s where Cupid’s arrow is flying in 2013: Tinder - Probably the buzziest dating app out there, Tinder is like a location-based “hot or not” for the i Phone or Android.
Traditional dating sites like and e Harmony have always been a hard sell on college campuses, where the incredible density of young single people all living in the same buildings makes turning to the Internet to find love seem unnecessary and old-fashioned.
But now, a new breed of dating services is making headway with this younger and more carefree demographic.
I decided to use Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB), and here are the observations that I made. Dating In College Is Pretty Terrible It’s really difficult to meet people organically because everyone is sewn to their phones and thinking of what their next move is going to be on Instagram or Snapchat.
Coffee Meets Bagel also prides itself on being discreet, you're not likely to ever match with your direct Facebook friends. Unlike Tinder and similar apps which shows you all user profiles within a designated radius of your location, Happn takes GPS a little further by showing you all the users you've physically walked past throughout your day.
Profiles are organized by time and place of your encounter and if you like a user, you can secretly like their profile – they won't find out unless there is mutual interest.
No upgrades will be required for you to have full access to College Passions. This option opens up access to a significant number of active sites in the network, but again, it is not required.
Additionally, you will have the to upgrade your Passions Network account (if you would like).
