The Craziness of Online Dating

Online dating has never been more popular. In fact, according to a study done in 2013 by Pew Research Center, 10% of Americans aged 18-24 have used online dating sites or apps. It would not be surprising if that number were significantly higher today.

The overwhelming number of apps being released on a daily basis is a common frustration for potential daters. Recently, a new site called wants to fix this problem and provide guys a resource to check out beautiful women.

Aggregating the top dating sites

TopRomp has aggregated the top dating apps for millennials into the Ultimate Guide for Dating Apps. They rate each app by overall score, hotness, popularity and usability. They have also included pros and cons, a summary, and the bottom line. This makes a great tool for first-time users who have no idea which app to use. For all you seasoned online daters, you won’t be surprised to find which app was ranked #1…Tinder!

Social Media Integration

TopRomp heavily relies on Instagram to showcase “#RompGirls.” I wouldn’t be surprised if girls on Instagram sent TopRomp their photos to be used on the site as is the case with similar sites. In a week you may start seeing girls painting their stomachs “TopRomp” and “#RompGirls”.

Which Friends Are on Tinder

This is my personal favorite. TopRomp has actually created a tool that shows which of your friends are using Tinder! It is pretty cool, but I would say that not all of my friends are being shown. Regardless, it’s pretty crazy to see this data is publically accessible. They also included “friends of my friends who are single, female, and live nearby” as well as “photos of women who like cucumbers and live in Utah”. I’m assuming they were drunk when they wrote that last one. Nevertheless, you can see that TopRomp is leveraging interesting fun facts targeted towards men that are making the dating game easier and more data-driven.

General Consensus

It is very impressive, albeit a little creepy, how dating has transformed from picking up a girl in a bar every weekend to scrolling through thousands of potential dates with the help of technology. TopRomp simplifies the seemingly endless online dating choices for the tech savvy generation by clearly defining the murky world of internet dating. Now guys can plan exactly where to go to find who they are looking for or just look at photos of pretty girls.
