The goal of any dating app is to find a suitable match based on one’s interests, values, and preferences, and different dating apps use different approaches to achieve that. While some apps are more overt with the expression of intentions, others use algorithms based on your profile to come up with the best possible matches.

Still others take an entirely different route and come up with creative and innovative ideas like taking a personality test, or sharing movie likes or simply hooking up with people you walk past in the street. So, what’s so different about Tastebuds?
