"However, the traditional online dating sites are doing a good job with mobile." Most apps are complementary to existing web platforms.
The mobile platform encourages users to regularly flirt and keep up with incoming messages. "Perusing new platforms that don’t have a traditional site, like location-based app Meet Moi, means viewing new matches you haven’t seen before who might be your right click," Davis says.

"The initial intention to meet focuses on fun, but that doesn’t mean that things can’t turn serious later as your relationship develops," Davis says.
As much as mobile dating apps are about the now, it's also important to note that if the notifications and constant messaging get overwhelming, it's okay to take a break.
"Don’t forget that most location-based apps have an off button," Davis says.
"Typically found in the preferences section, it’s important to only make yourself available when you’re ready to flirt, so you don’t get caught by a cutie when you’re at the grocery store in your PJs." Dating apps facilitate real-life meetups, so safety is even more important with casual mobile meetups, Davis says.
They earn points for using the app and responding to ads.
