It’s getting cold in Boston. Of course, it is almost always cold in Boston, but that doesn’t change the fact that cold nights are harder alone. If you have been looking for love in B-Town with no luck, we might have some good news for you. We have put together a concise list of the absolute best dating apps for singles in Boston.
These apps have everything you need to turn your dating life around – modern features, lots of search filters, multiple communication methods, attentive moderators, and much more. They can take what is a long, expensive, and overwhelming dating journey and turn it into something enjoyable. If you want to learn how these Boston dating apps can help you—keep on reading.
Best Boston Dating App for Serious Relationships
Finding a committed relationship in Boston is probably the tallest task of them all. Currently, only 33% of the city is actually married, which is far, far below the national average. From our experience, this isn’t because people don’t want to get married, it’s just a lack of resources that help to start real relationships (that will eventually lead to commitment and then to marriage).
eHarmony is a Boston dating app that is the Roger Clemens of dating apps (if you don’t follow sports, he was arguably the best Boston Red Sox baseball pitcher ever). Some of our favorite highlights of the app are that it has a great 51/49 male to female ratio, it comes with many cutting edge features that help users find true compatibility, and has over 2.3 million messages sent every single week.
In other words, eHarmony is a great Boston dating app because it’s well balanced, feature rich (and safe), and has a wildly active userbase.
Best Elite Dating Option in Boston
Since we’re already talking about baseball, The League seems like a fitting next step. And while this Boston dating app has absolutely nothing to do with the sport of baseball, it does work hard to curate matches that are truly homeruns (we’ll stop with the puns soon, we promise).
The League is an elite dating app (even more Elite then the next app on our list that actually has Elite in its name) that is designed for singles who have high standards. If you’re looking for the cream of the crop in Boston and want to be matched with people who are within that upper echelon, The League will be for you.
One of the coolest features The League offers is virtual mini-dates during a weekly happy hour where you can sit at home and almost go through a speed dating session with other people in your are. It’s super cool, and a must check out.
What’s also neat is that The League dating app only launched in a handful of select cities in 2015 and Boston was one of the initial 7! This means it’s one of the seven cities with the most established userbase on the platform.
Before you go trotting off to first base at The League, you need to be aware of what’s in store for you. You are going to have to get on a waiting list to be considered for acceptance, you’ll have to be voted in by The League’s internal processes, and then you’ll have to pay for an upgraded membership which can start at several hundred dollars per month. It’s a wildly different experience than the other Boston dating apps on this list, but so is the quality of singles you’ll get direct access to.
Best Boston Dating App for Driven Singles
What’s kind of funny is that most people think Elite Singles is what The League is—a higher brow, upper crust, pinkies up sort of environment (no offense to The League on that one). Instead, though, Elite Singles is a bit more down-to-Earth Boston dating app designed for people who are driven not only in their relationships but in their business lives.
The app uses a matching algorithm to match you with other users in the area. What’s neat, though, is that Elite Singles says over 85% of their users hold a higher level of education. We’re not 100% sure how this can be known for sure, but dating apps have a ton of information on users, so we get it. The takeaway is that the platform is fully designed for singles who value drive, work-ethic, and success as determining factors when making relationship decisions.
If you like people who are out there getting it and subscribe to the rise and grind mentality, Elite Singles just might be the Boston dating app you’ve been looking for.
