Safe adult sites
You still need to follow the usual online safety precautions — never give out your home address, look for synced social media profiles to make sure you’re not getting catfished, and if you decided to meet up, make it somewhere reeeeeally public.With that said — if you’re ready to give online dating a shot, here are a few teen-friendly options.Age limit: 18 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Happn combines the experience of meeting someone in real life with using a dating app.Every time you cross paths with another user of the app (literally) it will show on your timeline.What's not: The app has only been around for a few months, so you may not find a ton of locals on there.
What's not: Not everyone is super-active on Facebook, so you might not be able to see what your friends are up to.
And your pool of potential crushes isn’t limited to the handful of people you see at school every single day, so you have way more options.
Most dating apps have pretty strict age restrictions, though, so it can be hard to find one that’s actually geared towards teens.
Meaning, if you're 1 to 850ft away from a user, you will get access to their profile and vice versa.
This means, if someone else in school, at your gym, or anywhere else you hang out, is also using the app, you'll know.
Age limit: 17 and up Available for: i OSWhat's good: One of the crappy things about dating apps is that you’re making a snap judgment based on someone’s profile pic — so you could end up vetoing your soulmate just because they're not your usual type.
