And while Tinder is free to send and receive messages, you can upgrade your account to get more out of it, including better visibility and (hopefully) more matches.

Happn: Everything You Need To Know

Happn was created in 2014 as a direct rival to Tinder. It’s another swipe app that has the same basic concept as Tinder: That is, you can’t send messages to someone until you mutually like each other. There’s no search function either. Instead, you just swipe left or right on profiles.

Where Happn has always differed, however, is that it’s a location-based dating app where matches are based on the people you’ve met in real life. Intrigued? The idea is that the app matches you with people who have hung around the same places as you, such as bars and galleries. You may have already met before, and the app wants to help you break the ice.

Happn, then, is a lot more focused on helping you arrange quick-fire local dates. For instance, you can only match with someone within a 250-meter radius of yourself, and, provided the two of you like the look of each other, you can then arrange to meet up there and then.

Happn’s user base positivesingles gratis proefversie is solid but not spectacular. It averages around 100,000 daily active users, but its entire selling point is entirely down to the fact that it tracks the number of locations you’ve visited. It’s free to sign up, but you need to upgrade your account to send and receive messages.

Happn Versus Tinder: The User Base

Tinder is easily one of the most-used apps in the world. At the time of writing, it boasts as many as 57,000,000 users. Millions of new users download it each month, meanwhile, while its member ratio is heavily in favor of males, around 37% of its active users are females.

Tinder is especially popular with younger adults aged between 20 and 35. A large percentage of its users come from the USA, with many living in urban settings – especially cities.

Happn, on the other hand, has around 6,000,000 users at the time of writing. Around a million of these are active weekly users, but Happn’s male-to-female ratio is much more balanced than Tinder (it’s around equal).

Like Tinder, Happn’s age range is generally 23-35-year-olds, and a greater percentage of users come from English-speaking countries. Many users are city-based, but Happn caters to all age groups.

Happn vs Tinder: Profiles

Tinder is famous for its “less is more” approach when it comes to profiles. You’ll typically find that most users add a few pics but only one or two lines about themselves. They’ll state one or two interests, maybe they’ll insert something witty, and perhaps they’ll add an emoji.

Essentially, no one goes in-depth on Tinder, but instead, they try to catch someone’s eye with their pics and their sense of style and humor.

Happn is largely the same, but users tend to fill out even less info. Instead, most Happn users simply add a few pics and wait for matches. However, the app lets you see your mutual interests, and it also shows their exact location (unless they’ve made themselves invisible).

Happn Versus Tinder: Premium Features

Tinder is completely free to match with other users and send and receive messages. You can also pay for extra features for a one-time fee, such as “Boosts” (which make your profile more visible for 30 minutes) and Super Likes (which ensure that you’re always noticed each time you “like” someone).


Even though I am over a half a Century old, I have been inspired by the group to go for higher education. I have applied to the University of Regina and I got accepted. I plan on taking classes there and there and I pray and hope I will be successful to obtain two more degrees before I reach age 55. I want to be a role model for the students, my family, and the community. Before retiring I will tackle Masters.

Happy Friday the 13th of December,

Thank you for The SUTIL Scoop and the SUTIL team visit at Rhoda Hardlotte Keethanow High School in Northern Saskatchewan. I noticed some of the team members were into Volleyball during the noon hour. Maybe that is how the team works; to have fun and to laugh and to warm up before presenting to the students and staff. Great Team! Thank you once again, SUTIL Team.

Hi Linda and Cheryl,

Thank you on behalf of Nutana Collegiate for bringing your event to our students. I have been hearing nothing but positive feedback in the building since this morning. Being new in the career facilitator role in my building, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for having such a well-organized and easy (from the host school perspective) event to offer to my students. All of the hard work that you have put in is much appreciated. I look forward to future events.
