See how Bucket List works

We’re headed into summer, and online dating company Match conducted a survey to assess how many singles feel more adventurous this time of year. The results are in – 85% said that a potential date’s sense of adventure was an attractive quality, and 76% said they’d like to try something new in the coming months.

In fact, the results were overwhelmingly clear – singles crave a sense of adventure. Seventy-three percent said they would actually be more attracted to someone if they had a bucket list item in common, and 66% of singles said they would likely check off one of their bucket list items on a date.

Because of this, Match decided to create a new feature on their dating app called ‘Bucket List’ to highlight potential dates’ sense of adventure.

IRL - In Real Life

Why won’t my dating app connections respond to my messages? Is my job turning off potential partners? Is it honest to photoshop your dating app pics? Should I Google the people I meet on dating apps before going out with them? Is meeting in real life over?

These are some of the questions Hinge is tackling in its latest venture, a digital magazine called IRL. Launched last month, IRL is updated daily with advice drawn from the heaps of data Hinge has collected on users over the years.

Justin McLeod, Hinge's founder & CEO, told Mashable, “Our Member Experience team constantly receives emails from members asking for a wide-range of dating app advice.” He said it was clear that “singles wanted a safe space to ask dating app related questions and receive reliable, data-backed advice.”

Have you met someone over your favorite dating app and questioned their honesty? Chances are, if you’re an active online dater you have, and you’re not alone. Many daters are distrustful of other daters, and can’t tolerate even a small “white lie” – whether it’s fudging your weight, age or income, according to a new study by dating site Match.

This is because many of us aren’t exactly honest with our dates. In fact, Match’s annual Singles in America study surveyed over 5,000 daters in the U.S. across a range of ages, ethnicities, and regions to determine how much (and what type) of small lies they would tolerate on a first date before turning down a second date.

Match found the majority of daters – 57% - claim they do not tell white lies while they’re dating. Moreover, two thirds of daters believe any small fib is unacceptable. In fact, your chances of getting a second date or having sex aren’t made better by lying, so the consensus among singles is: just don’t do it.

No, it’s not just in your head: most of your friends are online dating.

In a recent survey, Tinder took a deep-dive into Millennial dating habits and compared the experiences of online daters and offline daters. They looked at key differentiators around fidelity, communication, perception and mindfulness, and debunked some of the most persistent modern dating myths out there.

For starters, dating services haven’t ruined dating, despite what critics say. In fact, people who date online are likely to have more committed relationships than those who do not date online. Only 9 percent of Tinder users reported finding it challenging to maintain a committed relationship. That’s significantly lower than the national average.

Sudan's Tinder Profile

When you picture your perfect date, they probably don’t have a horn and leathery skin - yet the most eligible bachelor on Tinder currently fits that description. Meet Sudan, the last known male northern white rhino in existence.

In early April, Tinder launched a campaign in partnership with the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in central Kenya to help save Sudan’s species from extinction. His profile on the app features an image of him tucking into a grassy meal, along with a call to action: “This is the last living male northern white rhino. Swipe right to help him find a match.”

His bio is both humble and humorous (a winning combination on any dating service). “I’m one of a kind,” it reads. “No seriously, I’m the last male white rhino on planet earth. I don’t mean to be too forward, but the fate of my species literally depends on me. I perform well under pressure. I like to eat grass and chill in the mud. No problems. 6ft tall and 5,000lbs if it matters.”
