Infographic from Twine Canvas, developed by Sourcebits, helps singles discover which online dating sites and mobile apps fit their flirting needs.

For people navigating the myriad online dating options and looking for love (long-term or just for a night), Twine Canvas has created a new decision tree infographic entitled “Looking to Meet Someone.” The infographic breaks down some of the most popular online dating sites – OkCupid, Tinder, Grindr, Twine Canvas, Badoo and Carrot. Answers to simple questions help find the most suitable dating app to match the type of partner/relationship wanted. The decision tree can be found at

“We created the decision tree so people new and experienced with the online dating scene can get an accurate sense of which sites and apps are best for them,” said Elliotte Bowerman, Vice President of Marketing for Sourcebits, developer of Twine Canvas. “Not all dating sites and apps are created equal, and they are definitely not ‘one size fits all.’ With so many options available, we wanted to help people find the right app to find the right match.”

Twine Canvas, developed by Sourcebits, offers an anti-meat-market mobile dating app experience by providing a fun way for people to put their personality first.

Twine Canvas is an iOS app that matches people based on personality, not physical appearance. Users create a “canvas” of pictures, using hobbies, activities and other snapshots to showcase their personality. Facial photos (your profile picture) are revealed only after you are matched with another interesting user. The app can be downloaded for free at

Included in the decision tree are some of the most popular dating sites and apps. Tinder, which focuses on shallow physical appearance and hook ups, allows users to swipe through a library of photos to like people based on initial appearance. Grindr is essentially the same, but directed towards the gay community. OkCupid uses answers from personality questions to rank matches by compatibility. Badoo ranks matches based on responses to the “Encounter” game. Carrot, meanwhile, allows users to bribe other users with promises of dates, flowers, etc. There are dozens of other dating apps, sites and services available, with many of them focused on a specific niche like religion, location, age or orientation.
