Dating apps, for their part, have tried combating this in a number of ways.JSwipe puts a timer on how long you have to start talking to a match. Coffee Meets Bagel gives you and your match an opening question to break the ice. Bumble was co-founded by Whitney Wolfe, the ousted Tinder cofounder.In case you haven't read it in full, here's the abbreviated version of my findings: Tinder is mindless, but fun.Hinge feels less sketchy because you get matched up with your Facebook friends' friends. Ok Cupid proved itself to be nothing but a barrage of unwanted and often gross messages."I wanted to do something that would promote a responsible user online.There’s a lot of room to be negligent and nasty to each other," Wolfe told Business Insider earlier this year.And it makes conversations more thoughtful — starting every conversation with "Hey! Where does the custom of "Chanukah gelt" (of giving money to children) come from?
