New Zealand dating apps: Do they really work?


New Zealand is a small country with a small population, although it is probably the most beautiful country in the entire world. There are some well-known dating apps in New Zealand, but do they really work?


Happn is a very interesting dating app in New Zealand – it shows you who is near you, who probably works in the same office building with you or who is possibly your neighbour. Its location-based technology is super advanced. However, if you are dating someone who works in the same building and it doesn’t work out, you’ll probably have to meet that person in the lift almost every day! How awkward is that?!


This is probably the most reliable New Zealand dating app because it only matches you with one member per day so that you both have full attention for each other for 24 hours. Yes, absence of distraction is the key to build attraction online. Better still, dating profiles on this app are very detailed, so you can understand someone very well by looking at their profile carefully. This is the ideal dating app for those who are looking for long-term partners rather than short-term flings.


On this popular dating app in New Zealand, women have to make the first move, i.e., when there is a match (both members have swiped right to each other’s profiles), the lady must send the first message to the gentleman within 24 hours (if it’s a free membership). Men on Bumble are generally hotter, so it’s a good app for New Zealand women – women not only can make the first move, but also can enjoy so many sexy men!


Although the name of this dating app in New Zealand sounds very pure, but actually, it’s purely about casual hook-ups. If you join this app, you can easily see that most people on this dating app are looking for casual relationships instead of serious relationships. Nobody cares about your dating profile; they only want to see your photos and decide whether they should hook up with you tonight or not.


As the world’s No. 1 dating app, Tinder doesn’t have too many members in New Zealand because according to our test, we keep seeing the same photos again and again. One woman in Auckland even told us that she can only see so many profiles on Tinder and she even saw her ex-husband’s photo on Tinder, which is absolutely horrific! Clearly, though New Zealand is a good country to live in, a very obvious negative of living in New Zealand is that dating is really hard here – there are only so many people out there and singles find it really difficult to find someone suitable to date and start a relationship with. No wonder a lot of women from New Zealand have moved to Australia/the United States (e.g. Gala Darling) in order to find better opportunities in terms of work and love life. Having said that, if you are a tourist in New Zealand, it’s easy for you to use a travel dating app which sends an unlimited number of local New Zealand girls to you.
