What’s so difficult about just meeting people on the street, talking to them and dating them.

If you need an app to date, you have a social skills problem.

@Burning bush, not entirely true. Some don't have time, and some do not want to do an effort going out just to meet someone.

Burning Bush, this isn't the US. Japanese are wary of being approached by random strangers.Besides, there is room for both. Not everyone has the time of money to go out everyday. Online sites offer a way to connect with hundreds of people a day without going out of your way.

I have tapped good wells using street approach but you have to be ready to go down in flames in real time. No risk no reward.

How pathetic is the world getting.....apparently we are still figuring it out LOL!!!

These are just hook up apps & hypergamy for women. The only reason some guys participate is for some easy pickin's, sounds like these apps are set to get even worse than they already are
