Antidate Is New Dating App With A Twist

Tinder Killer?

For those who are sick of hearing about Tinder, rejoice: a new dating app is in the midst. It's called Antidate, and it will challenge all your preconceptions about dating. It distinguishes itself from all the others with one little twist: men won't be able to message or see women, they'll have to wait till a woman messages them.

The concept is that of a two way mirror, where girls are able to view boys on a map and decide to interact with them but not the other way round. Co-founder Mo Saha goes over the reasons behind this radical decision: “We knew that guys were tired of making the first move all the time on dating sites and in the real world and girls were sick of receiving a barrage of unwanted messages."


This app will definitely please boys that are sick of always having to make the first move - on dating apps, but also in real life. All they have to do is wait for a girl to message them, challenging gender and dating norms. This will also please girls that are sick of receiving endless unwanted messages from annoying males. That added to the reassuring promise that girls' locations will never be revealed.

This isn't the only new and exciting feature available on the app. There is also a 'real time selfie' to prevent users from choosing pictures of themselves that are too out of date. This will be perfect for those who are sick of not being sure what the person actually looks like. On Tinder, for instance, it can be impossible to tell if it's just a flattering picture or the person actually is attractive.

To help fight accounts that aim to deceive through their pictures, there is also a rating system. When you go meet someone you chatted to on the app in real life, you can rate them to tell users whether they actually look like the pictures they chose to advertise themselves. You won't be tricked ever again!


Unfortunately, for those Instagram haters out there, one of the conditions for joining the app is to have an Instagram account. The reason behind this is that the app creators want to attract a young crowd (Instagram is the one of the only social media networks that my parents haven't discovered. Yet). This may also influence what sort of people there may be on the app, so be wary.

However, despite this interesting take on online dating, the app does not have the same user base as Tinder just yet. If you want to get it, you may have to fork out £0.69, which places it as a disadvantage compared to other free online dating apps.
