About Dating Insider

You might think that all you need to succeed in the modern dating-sphere is an internet connection, a cheesy pickup line, and a condom… but boy, are you wrong. Online dating is still a difficult place through which to navigate. Sure, at first you might think that there’s nothing that can stop you from getting laid… but soon you realize that you’re only equipped with a smartphone, and a dream which I’m sure you’ll learn won’t get you very far. 

You’ll learn that you might not be the online dating Casanova that you expected yourself to be. But it might not be your fault! In fact, it probably isn’t entirely your fault. Most of the time, the dating app that you’ve signed up for just isn’t suited to your needs or desires. 

When it comes down to it, we all have some serious player potential locked up inside us, but sometimes the apps and sites that we sign up for just aren’t the ones for us! For instance: you might sign up for Tinder expecting to find a swinger’s paradise only to find mostly single people looking to hook up with other single people. 

Dating apps come in just as many flavors as jelly beans, or ice cream, or people. There’s a dating app for everyone! It’s just that the app that’s worked for your friend might not work for you, because you’re not the same flavor – I mean, you’re not looking for the same things. 

Here’s where Dating Insider comes in!

Our dating experts join and experiment with all the dating apps we can possibly find. From there we’ve critically thought about what makes a dating app great, what makes it terrible, and what kind of people are likely to find success using it. We’ve reviewed all the dating apps that we can get our hands on! We’ve essentially become dating masters at this point… 

Why you need our reviews:

While you might think that you can go it alone, it’s always smart to take advice from people who are a little more experienced than you. Sure, you may be older than some of our dating experts, but I guarantee we’ve spent more time on any given site than you have – especially if you haven’t signed up yet! 

We know what we’re talking about! So, if we say that a site is scammy, we’re probably right. If we say that one is worth your time and money, we only say so because we spent our time and money because we didn’t feel cheated… so you can expect the same outcomes. 

When you’re shopping for a dating site, you may not know what to expect. There are a ton of sites out there! There’s a dating site for practically every single niche – no matter how small – that you can think of. Plus, there are always dating apps cropping up in the app store, only to be banned in a few weeks for scamming. 

Don’t be that guy that doesn’t stop and ask for directions only to find yourself more lost than when you started. Trust us; we can point you in the right direction. 

About our reviews:

You won’t have to worry about sorting through a dense block of text to find out what we really think. We standardized our reviews so that they’re super straightforward! 

All of our reviews go through the site as we experience it. We cover everything from sign up to making connections in a linear way that’s easy to digest. 

In addition, we pay special attention to if the upgrades are worth it. One of the things I hate is when a dating app has scammy pricing and upgrades. If you’re going actually to put money toward your dating experience, you should get actual value! That’s one of the key points that all of our reviews hit on: upgrades and their worth to the consumer. 

After we go over the basics – like the general user experience, ease of navigation, and how we feel about the upgrades – we discuss the pros and cons of a site. 

Most all of the sites we review have good qualities! Of course, we give you our opinion, but we present the facts in the form of pros versus cons so that you can make your own decision too! 

At the end of our articles, we say a few words in conclusion and give the dating app or site a review out of 5 stars! So if you are confused about how we felt, you will definitely know by the end of the article. 

To reiterate, we do try to balance giving our opinions by presenting the facts as to make sure we’re not too biased! 

How we help you avoid dating pitfalls:

While we’re not dating gurus, we are dating site gurus. We’re not going to tell you what to say in your first message or what to wear on a first date, but we will tell you which sites are the best. 

We’ll also tell you what kind of sites suit your interests.

Like I mentioned earlier, one of the biggest mistakes people make when joining a site is joining the wrong one for what they want! 

For instance, if you’re looking for a long-term partner Fling is not going to be the site for you! 

If you’re looking for a hook up then why are you on Match.com or another serious dating site? 

If you’re kinky then why are you even thinking about joining Christian Mingle!? Well, actually that might not be that bad of an idea… the sexual repression of being Christian does wonders in the ways of creating a dark sexual imagination… I mean that brings a whole new meaning to the name “Christian Grey”, but I digress… 

Our articles will help you discover which app or site is the right one for what you’re looking for sexually, romantically, or both! 

The benefits of using our content:

Our content is a dating arsenal. You wouldn’t go into a battle without your sword, so why would you join a dating site without understanding what you’re getting yourself into? 

When it comes down to it, our content is only going to make you more successful on whichever site you chose to join. We’ll help you find the app or site that will help you find what you’re looking for. 

The only thing that reading our content will cost you is time! Hell, we might even help you save some money by warning you about a scammy site or an app with lame upgrades! 

Still not convinced, well reading what we have to say can’t hurt you now can it!? 

In short…

We’re here to help you. We understand the frustration that comes with online dating. Believe me I’ve lost valuable hours of my life (and a little bit of money) on bullshit dating apps. While I – and our other dating experts – can’t get our time or money back… we can at least help other people from making the same mistakes.
