Users’ opinions:
"Blendr is just fine for me, not worse than other dating apps, but considerably cheaper. I am really thinking to buy Lifetime Premium. I doubt I will ever want to get married again so online flirting and offline hookups is just my thing. I met really cool women via Blendr not just stupid chicks, so I find it qualitative enough. You just have to use your experience and be a pro in getting through the scammers, bots and ads. There are some freaks too. But if you have that extra time for being selective and careful, you will succeed. I recommend Blendr for sure.” (Boris, 32, LA) "I had issues with Blendr, but customer support did help and I managed to find a few nice guys for fun, after some technical and organizational struggle. I cannot say Blendr works without flaws and bugs. Oh, there are many. But at least a half of profiles are real people and it’s worthy of trying. Many dating apps completely consist of fakes and/or ask to pay too high. This one is more reasonable.” (Melinda, 26, NYC)  

Expert’s conclusion:

No one expects amazing results from a flirting app. It isn’t meant for hookups, and it isn’t meant for serious relationships either. It’s more for fun and making your spare time more pleasant, mostly online. Does Blendr meet such expectations? Yes and no. The reviews from users are 50/50 positive and negative. It’s not always fun or pleasant to use Blendr because of ads, fraudulent accounts, and LGBT people who you probably don’t expect to see there. But the app is for everyone plus the profiles aren’t strictly pre-moderated. Although flirting apps aren’t usually costly, as they don’t provide such important things as safely organized sex or marriages, the users still want to get something back when they pay. We think that for such a non-serious category of apps, Blendr does it job well. Half of people who use it, report successful meetings and we consider it to be a great result for a flirting app. As to the age group, there aren’t many people over 40 and no 50 y.o. at all. At the same time, Blendr isn’t creative or trendy enough to attract late teens and progressive youth. So it is mostly suitable and effective for 25 – 38 y.o. folks. We recommend it to this concrete age group not depending on their social status or a level of income: Blendr is affordable for anyone. We rate is an "ok” dating app.
