Five dating apps that are just the worst

Online dating used to be a way for shy, socially awkward people to meet their (shy, socially awkward) soulmates and begin relationships based on, well, more than just looks and sex. But when dating sites moved from the wired Internet to smartphones, well, lets just say things started to go downhill.

Now, instead of questionnaire-based sites like eHarmony, we have hot-or-not style apps like Tinder. Instead of looking for “the one,” were looking for the one who can take the sexiest selfie, and whos within 25 miles of our house and down to…get coffee.

Im actually not here to hate on dating apps-theyre an understandable and necessary way to meet new people, thanks to our jam-packed schedules and smartphone-obsessed society. But some dating apps have me shaking my head. An app that asks you to bribe users to go on dates with you? An app that doesnt let you message other people unless other people deem you “hot enough?” If youve got the Valentines Day blues and are looking to try a new dating service, stick to OKCupid-stay away from these.

Carrot Dating

Online dating is tough, especially if you want to date out of your league, looks-wise. But how can you show that sexy girl (or guy) that youre worth it (because you have money)? Bribe them, of course!

Carrot Dating is an app that lets you bribe (it literally says “bribe”) people to go on dates with you. In fact, you cant not bribe people-the app only lets you communicate with people you have bribed or who have bribed you.

Does that sound totally sketchy? Well, thats because it is. Heres how it works: You sign up with Facebook or with an email address and you upload a photo and a short bio. You can then purchase credits (10 for $5, 50 for $20, 100 for $30, or 250 for $60) if you want to be the briber, or you can just sit back and hope you look sexy enough if you want to be the bribee.

Bribers can choose from a number of preset bribes from different categories (dining, entertainment, gifts, and activities). (more…)
