Tinder and Pure are popular dating apps but differ in several ways. Tinder is a more mainstream app, while Pure is designed for people who want to hook up quickly without any strings attached.

Tinder has a large user base and is known for its swiping feature, where users swipe left or right to show their interest in someone. The app allows users to create a profile with photos, a bio, and their interests. It also offers a paid subscription service that gives users more features like unlimited swipes, the ability to change their location, and more.

On the other hand, Pure is designed to be more anonymous and discreet. Users create a profile with a photo, but their identity is hidden until they match with someone. The app also emphasizes the importance of meeting up quickly, and conversations are deleted after 24 hours to encourage users to take action.

If neither app seems appealing, another option to consider is Hinge.
