5 Signs you are Ready to Start Dating After a Breakup

 

Breakups are never easy. If you have found yourself in this sort of situation, you know it can be tough to process and think about all of the overwhelming emotions you are experiencing. One thing that is very tough to figure out is when to start dating again. Some say you should get back to it immediately, to keep your mind off the negative emotions associated with the breakup. Others say it takes time before you are ready again. 

The truth is there is no universal answer. The most important thing is how you feel about it and how well you are taking the breakup. If it has been a long relationship, you will need more time to heal your wounds and focus more on yourself. But there are some signs to look out for, which indicate you might be ready to date again. Here are a few of them: 

  • You know you have learned a lot about yourself – there is no timeline to healing from a breakup and moving on. The most important thing is to know you have worked through the situation and have put your feelings in check. That is when you will know you have grown from this experience and learned your lessons. This is what will help you move on into a new relationship. 

  • You are ready to be a better partner – if you cannot leave the past behind, you cannot be a good partner. And that is something you just know. There are things like forgiving yourself for not choosing a good enough match and forgiving the other person for the disappointment that will make you a better partner. Letting go of all the doubts, resentment and anger is what will make you better suited for someone else. 

  • You are happy with yourself being alone – often times people spread the stereotype that being in a relationship is good, and being alone is bad. But that is false. You can be perfectly happy with yourself, and having time to breathe, which is especially good after a tough breakup. When you are fine with doing new hobbies, seeing friends, working on your career and finding fulfilment outside of being with a partner, that is when you know you are ready to have a new relationship. At this point, it should feel like a bonus, not a must. 

  • You are beyond wanting your ex back – missing your ex after the breakup is normal. There is even going to be a period during which you will happily get back together. If you think that you two doing just that is a good idea, then you are not ready to start dating. When you get to a stage where old memories aren’t leading to ideas of connecting with them again, you will know you can start dating. 

  • You are ready to start building a new future – if you are ready to start making plans about the future, then that is another sign of you being ready to date again. This is the case when you have made plans with your old partner; plans that are obviously now not going to happen. At first, it may seem like the future is not clear, but once you no longer see things that way, you will be ready to date again. Struggling to accept the way things have changed is normal, but you will get over it, eventually. 

There is no doubt that when these signs are present, you will be able to better tell it is time to start dating again.

Dating App Development- Key Features, Types, Cost, and Monetization Strategies!

In 1959, the first-ever dating service- Happy Families Planning Services- was launched by Phil Fialer and Jim Harvey at Standford. It was a class project where a questionnaire was used to match 49 men and 49 women with an IBM 650- an early digital computer. That is how the concept of technology-based dating services began.

 

Later, in the year 1995, Match.com and Yid.com, the first modern dating websites were launched and since then, online dating services have evolved tremendously. As of now, about 8000 dating apps/websites exist on the web. And the latest online dating apps like Tinder and Bumble have broken all the records and have proved to be ground-breaking discoveries in this domain.

 

As reported by Statista, a popular online portal for statistics, Tinder has an audience size of 7.86 million and Bumble has around 5.03 million users.

 

 

These numbers are good indicators to recognize the potential of this domain. Owing to this, startups, and entrepreneurs across the globe are focusing on architecting such unique dating apps.

 

So, this blog is an attempt to provide a brief guide on dating app development for those looking to create a new-age dating app. Here, we will shed light on several parameters related to architecting dating apps. Let’s get started.

 

Major Types of Dating Apps

 

 

  • Geographic Proximity Dating Apps: It enables users to find a match based on their geographic proximity, by selecting a radius up to which they want to see the profiles. Ex. Bumble
  • Matching Algorithm-Based Dating Apps: The app algorithm compares different profiles of the users based on personal survey information and suggests matching profiles to them. Ex. eHarmony
  • Niche Dating Mobile Apps: These are apps targeted to a specific niche or group of people. For instance, ‘The League’ only allows people with advanced education and careers for matchmaking. Likewise, ‘DateMyPet’ is another dating app exclusively meant for pet lovers.
  • Traditional Dating Mobile Apps: These are like so-called ‘old-school’ dating apps, simply replicating the features of the web versions of the apps. Ex. OkCupid.

 

Key Features of New-age Online Dating Apps

Features are the most important attribute of a dating application and play a vital role in the success or failure of the app. So, here we have enlisted the top features that the dating app development services consider while creating such advanced apps. These features are broadly classified into two main categories: Features for the user panel and features for the admin panel. Let’s have a look at both of these categories.

 

Features for User Panel

 

  • Registration and Login
  • User Profile Creation
  • Geo-location Feature
  • Search Bar and Filters for matching
  • Match-making based on Gender, Location, Age, etc.
  • Send, Accept or Decline Requests
  • Match Feed
  • Real-time Chatting and Audio/Video Calling
  • Alerts and Push Notifications
  • Reporting and Blocking Users
  • Social Media Integration
  • Online as well as Offline Accessibility
  • Settings
  • Safety and Security
  • Multiple Languages Support
  • Flexible Payment Options
  • Rewards/Loyalty Bonus/Discount Offers for Referring New Users

Features for Admin Panel

 

  • Secure Login to Admin Dashboard
  • Verification of User Profiles
  • Managing Notifications
  • Managing Menu/Screens/Pages
  • Managing Users/Requests/Rewards
  • Multiple Payment Gateway Integration and Currency Support
  • Managing Membership Packages
  • Managing Affiliate and Partnership Program
  • Running Promotions/Offers/Discounts
  • Managing SMS and Email marketing
  • Viewing Reports and Data Analytics
  • Tracking Revenue
  • Content Modification using CMS

 

Monetization Strategies for Online Dating Mobile Apps

 

There is tough competition in this arena and the cost of developing a unique dating mobile app, too, is quite high. So, it is essential to apply some monetization strategies to generate revenue down the line. Let’s explore them.

 

Affiliate Marketing / Selling Advertisements:

Affiliate marketing i.e. in-app advertisements is one of the best practices to make money when there is a good amount of traffic on your website or app. It is a tried and tested technique in which you need to display ads of diverse brands and companies for promoting their products on your app, by using Google AdSense or directly from the companies. You can earn money when the users either view the ad, click on it, or buy some product through the ad.

 

Subscribing to Premium Plan:

This is one of the commonest monetization strategies being extensively used by most dating apps. By subscribing to monthly or yearly plans, the users can avail several premium features like removing ads, getting contact details of the matches, unlimited liking, swipes, and chatting, etc. options. For example, Tinder offers a premium plan i.e. a Plus Edition using which, the users can view users from other cities too and even change their location, they can undo their swipes done in the past, get unlimited likes, etc. Another app like OkCupid provides features like removing ads, matching with more number of users, receiving one boost every day, etc. in their Premium Offers

 

In-app Purchases:

This is another technique in which the users can buy something additional from the app, besides the free services. They can buy extra swipes, likes, stickers, emojis, etc. for instance. An app named ‘Badoo’ is a good example of in-app purchases. Users can get additional benefits like highlighting their messages, sending crush alerts, browsing anonymously, viewing who liked them, sending gifts, etc. in exchange for some money.

 

Rewarded Videos and Surveys:

Videos and surveys can be embedded in the app for the users to watch videos or take part in surveys so that they earn some coins to help them pay for their membership or even unlock in-app features.

 

Integrating eCommerce:

Users often wish to buy gifts for their partners, and so, they could buy from the app if eCommerce software is synched in the app. The only thing that needs to be assured is that eCommerce functionality should not affect your app’s working and ultimately the core aim of the dating app.

 

Cost Required for Dating App Development

The cost of mobile app development depends on the features to be embedded in the app, the technology stack, and the development strategy you choose. Besides, it also depends on whether you choose to develop a full-fledged app or go with an MVP model. An MVP model would cost $18,000 approximately. Also, we have calculated the approximate cost of creating a full-fledged dating app like Tinder or Bumble, as given below:

 

Native Android dating app: $25,000

Native iOS dating app: $25,000

Hybrid dating app: $45,000

 

So, here we come to the end of this blog, and hope it will be beneficial to you in your Dating app development journey!

One Paw Forward, One Fear-Based Step Back

Dear Readers: The BSG doesn’t usually answer letters this long, but Bitter Coupled Gal has been a faithful commenter on the BSG’s blog, so he’s happy to bring her some advice.

 

Dear Bitter Single Guy: Oh how I love coming to you for answers BSG. Your harsh reality makes well to bring out important questions and answers when emotions are involved.

 

My Dog-Lovin Dude and I have decided to increase our little family (as we call it) and adopt a second dog. As excited as we both are I have some apprehensions. I live in a small apartment and together with DLD and Current Pup. I know that a studio apartment for four (two humans two dogs) will only work in the short term. I have hinted to DLD that we need to consider getting a bigger place together if we adopt a second puppy (and by hint I mean blatantly stated “this will work short term but we need to consider a bigger place together for the dogs and our sanity”). When the subject is broached DLD tells me he feels a bit overwhelmed and we drop the subject for the time being.

As much as I want a second pup I’m happy to wait until we are both sure we can live together officially in the future. We technically live together now but he still has his own place, and even though he merely uses it as a storage center for his belongings, he still has his own place to go to. I know DLD had a bad experience in the past living with someone and I believe part of the apprehension is due to this. I think the other half are his own commitment issues (yes, due to fear I’m sure) and him being a Libra always has to weigh every issue back and forth. It takes us 20 minutes to pick out canned olives at times. While his careful consideration in all aspects of life do help us make accurate and smart decisions, but sometimes we don’t always have the TIME to hem and haw. We’ve been together a year now.

 

I’m in no real rush BSG but we were accepted to meet a foster puppy and will have to make the to adopt or not to adopt decision soon. He is thrilled at the idea of our little family as he calls it but, again, is apprehensive about discussing moving in together. I don’t want to overwhelm him but I just can’t rightly bring in a new pup unless he can see us moving forward together. How do I broach this again without coming on too strong? I don’t want him to think because we get a dog and move in together I think we’re destined for eternity together, but I do happen to see this as a commitment step. I know he must have weighed out the pros and cons about getting a dog with me, but sometimes I wonder if his excitement over a new pup is overshadowing some important conversations. I am very ready for this with him, knowing it won’t always be puppies and rainbows but am ever so willing to work on continuing a healthy relationship. OH BSG, you are a male – how would you want a female to come to you with this very important decision. ~Bitter Coupled Gal~

Dear BCG: The Bitter Single Guy appreciates how life’s little things often end up being inextricably wrapped up in life’s bigger things. In your case, this is obviously not about whether to get a puppy or not; it’s about how your relationship is going to advance.  Nicely presented, BCG.

 

First, the BSG has one random point: he cringed when reading that it takes you 20 minutes to pick out canned olives. Really BCG? Canned olives? Just stop that. Buy good olives. Life’s too short. Sheesh.

 

OK, back to our regularly scheduled programming. Your question for the BSG is how you should approach this issue and he thinks you already have approached it.  If, in fact, your prerequisite for canine acquisition is a larger living space, you need to state that. One way to keep it from being overwhelming for Dog Loving Dude is to determine if there are options beyond the one-dog-partial-cohabitation-commitment or two-dogs-full-cohabitation-commitment. In other words, is there a way to have more space for your growing family without Dog Loving Dude freaking out?

 

Maybe his place is bigger and you two could spend half (or more) of your time there? Maybe he’d be willing to help you get into a bigger space while still keeping his place? In other words BCG, the BSG wants you to get Dog Loving Dude involved in the solution here.  Here’s an idea for how this could go:

“Hey DLD! Like you, I am quite pleased by our growing family of dogs and people, and the idea of adding another pup is quite neato in my opinion, but we need to figure out how to get more space for all of us. We could spend our time at your bigger pad, we could both contribute to me getting a bigger pad, or we could officially cohabitate and get rid of your pad. Which of these seems likely?”

 

The BSG thinks that if Dog Loving Dude isn’t willing to even have a conversation about options then you should put your *ahem* paw down and just say no to new puppies. If 20-minute-olive-choosing guy can’t step up to this conversation, the BSG says no puppy for him.
