    Hello Guys,

    I'm new here and I just want to start with an own topic. So here it is.
    Did you know any other Apps like Tinder where you can meet up new people?! This App is so unserious, you just vote how beautiful or ugly the person is. I just want to chat with new people, so I can find new friends or something like that.
    hope you can help me

    Hi @Marie-Johanna11102, there are plenty of apps similar to the one you described, and they all have different ways of connecting people together. There are some which have just open chat lines that you can jump into and it's basically a free-for-all where there may be anywhere from just a couple to as many as a couple dozen people chatting at once and fighting for attention. Those can get kinda hairy and difficult to really make any connection on. If you go below the tender app installation panel on the Play Store you'll see two other sections which list 'similar apps' and 'users also installed'.

    You can see quite a number of different choices under both of those categories and you may find something that appeals to you more through those options.

    Some of the more popular ones would be Skout, blendr, OkCupid, and POF which stands for "plenty of fish". From what I understand plenty of fish is really the only completely truly free site where as the others although not completely free oftentimes require you to provide a credit card to join which they claim won't be charged and also try to coerce you into buying points with cash to access user profiles and send gifts.

    Let me give you fair warning, there are lots of seedy people on these sites trolling for one thing only. If that's not what you're looking for be very careful.

    Couldn't agree with this more. If you're just looking for a place to chat with people and make friends, you're likely better off on a forum like this one. Most of those "Rate me" or "Chat Dating" apps have a LOT of people who're looking for something considerably more risque.

    Tinder is fun, just need to play the game.

    Chat rooms still around? I used to use aolchat back in the day. Join some Facebook groups, take us a new hobby, etc.

    LOL I was thinking the exact same thing @Mustang02..... I haven't been in an actual "chat room" since back during the old AOL days in the 90s. It's amazing how popular they once were and nowadays you just don't see them. You used to have to wait for someone to leave to get into some of the more popular ones. AltaVista, Netscape, HotBot.....everyone had their own various chat rooms on their main page.

    Yes, chat rooms, they were the bomb. Well, now we have Hangouts as one but there are certainly others. There are also party lines where it's a verbal chat free-for-all, but they can get really dicey. All you need is one freakazoid on the line to destroy the entire thing for everyone.

    Chat rooms are where I honed my typing skills in middle school. By high school, I had lots of free time to do whatever I wanted in keyboarding class. I used to sell the assignments for $1 & go get a pop.

    Just like you, chat rooms are what allowed me to hone my skills typing as well. I actually type about 70 words per minute now which is pretty impressive for a guy and yes that's a gender biased comment. But seriously, chat rooms were always fun and user groups with the various different interests which is basically the earlier version of what we have here now in our forum. Always cool, and at that time it was all text and no graphical interface. And most of us were running on hundred fifty baud modems, and if you're lucky you had a 300 baud modem, then when 1,200 baud modems came out we all thought it was the bomb.

    Agreed. I'm around 70 on average as well, according to the test I just took. All kinda depends on what I'm typing. I'm also hunched over the coffee table on my Remix tablet and not seated properly at a desk. I feel like that'd be faster. People are amazed to this day by my touch-typing as well. I've been in situations where I was typing something and looking around the room at people and none of them believed I was actually typing something until they saw my pages of typing.

    We were among the first on our street to have a computer and internet (AOL) because of my dad's job, so I even had a leg up on many in my generation.

    Yep, very similar for me too. Love to type while somebody is taking to me and watch their faces when they call me on it...

    Thank you for this post. I'm going to download POF, OKcupid, Skout, blendr and I've found some other apps like NewFaces.io, MeetMe and Mico. I'm going to give you some feedback soon.

    But thanks a lot. I'm also going to write in this forum the next time, too. Hope I can push my bad english and find some new friends here :)
