Tinder has officially reached the point where the quantity is far greater than the quality. Fortunately for those of you who are recently single (or not so recently), Bumble is where it’s at these days.

What this means in our experience is that you waste less time talking to people who aren’t interested, and the quality of women in general is higher.
