The Feeld Dating App Review
The Feeld Dating App Review
1. What you need to know:
The Feeld dating app is designed for the kink community. Both those who are looking exclusively for kinky dates and those who are curious about trying kink as a one off. Either by themselves or with a partner. The Feeld aims to offer all of the key things that kink dating app users tend to look for. These include privacy, the ability to be anonymous if you wish and to explore a wide variety of different types of kink and alternative dating options, including BDSM and swinging. If you want to try something different from the usual kink dating sites (for instance, FetLife), then The Feeld dating app could be for you. Below, this The Feeld dating app review explains the main features of this app and gives an insight into what it is like to use the app.
2. The stats:
This app was last updated to Version 1.19 on January 23rd, 2017. User statistics showed numbers between 100, 000 and 500, 000 people signed up to it as members. More precise statistics are not available. The app has been around since 2016 and so it will celebrate its first birthday this year. Within its main focus of kink and alternative dating, The Feeld dating app enables you to do many things. You can hook up, find a long lasting relationship with a fellow kinkster, find polyamorous relationships, meet up with couples for dating and hookups and much much more.
The app is free to use and it is available globally in English for both Android and iOS (with some users reporting that Android users find that the messaging feature is easier to use for them than for iOS users). The age range is very wide, with users mainly in their 30s-40s. It was developed and released in London. This is where most of its users currently hail from.
3. What it packs:
This app manages to verify your identity via Facebook whilst keeping you anonymous to other users at the same time. There are plenty of handy anonymous features here. For instance, you can use SMS to invite friends secretly to the app (via the ‘secret invitation’ function) without them knowing who the invitation came from. You can also heavily filter your search results so that you only chat with people who have similar interests to you. This goes beyond the simple differences that you often find for male and female users in other sites. If you are only looking for other gay couples to swing with, for example, then you can ensure that you are seen only by people who share similar interests. Finally, the apin-depth in depth articles on all aspects of kink life. Recent articles have dealt with ‘how to’ aspects of BDSM practices such as flogging.
4. The last word:
I liked the fresh feel of this site. The other major kink dating site, FetLife, can feel a bit too much like it is mimicking Facebook. The Feeld dating app feels like a world apart. It has filters which enable you to decide who can chat with you and vice versa. They can help you feel like your privacy matters and your preferences are catered to. Another thing I liked about the app is the way in which you can pair your profile up with that of a friend or partner. This is great for (for example) swinger couples who are looking for a new partner to join their relationship.
One thing to note is that you do need to have a Facebook profile in order to use this app. The high levels of filters that you can put on your profile and activities mean you are exposed to a lower number of potential matches than you tend to be with other dating sites. To sum up, my The Feeld dating app review is generally positive with a couple of slight reservations.
All in all, my The Feeld dating app review can be boiled down to 4 stars. The kink and polyamorous community needed an app like this one. It respects privacy whilst also feeling liberating. Definitely a good alternative app to explore.
