The market for dating applications is way more challenging than you think. You might think that building a dating application is a waste of time. Not because it is tough to build, but because of the competition like tinder. But you don’t have to worry if you have a good plan for building a dating app like Tinder then you don’t have to worry about it. Every idea and every business is worth pursuing.

What Drives the Demand for Building a Dating App Like Tinder?

During the pandemic unavailability of meeting people in-person drives the demand higher for online dating applications. They definitely need a solution to this particular problem. But there are certain hurdles in the way of building such an application. Not just dating types, but others too. Yeah! It does worth a shot.

So the very first question crossed your mind after reading the title of the article is that “Why should I build such an application when it has an immense level of competition? Like how will you cut out the market of Tinder? So, let’s first get started with it.

Why You Should Build a Dating App Like Tinder?

Well, this is the first question that crosses your mind even before “How to build a dating application?” If you want to build such an application you should know why you have to build such an application. So, let me start with the numbers. There are more than 32.2 million people behind generating great results for the dating application industry.

Do you think that these are the number all over the world, then you are wrong buddy, these are just the number of the USA. And it is almost 10% all over the world. It is expected to reach 35.4 million users by the end of 2024. I swear this is going to be proven wrong because the numbers will be increasing more than that.

Statista has proven that building a dating application can be a great and profitable business in the upcoming time. Let’s understand the numbers suggested by Statista itself.

  • The revenue of the online dating application sector is almost $4754 million as per 2020.
  • There are 43% of users who are aged between 25-34 years, in the dating application industry.
  • By 2024 it is estimated that the number of users using dating applications will reach 276.9 million globally.

There is a number of applications in this industry, doing new stuff every day. If you don’t trust me see below some number of Tinder, Bumble, Match, Zoosk, etc. Even you are not aware of dating applications other than Tinder and Bumble. Are you?

The numbers provide us with the perfect belief that Tinder is the most popular application in the world of dating applications. They have 57 million users all over the world. They have generated the value of 10 billion US dollars with their millions of customers.

What Kind of Technology is Needed to Create a Dating App Like Tinder?

If you are building a dating application for iOS and Android then you will have to go with the native type of application development. And it is advisable to build such applications which are not hybrid. Because people nowadays believe in a native application. For example, Spotify is used by android and iOS users.

When you are developing a dating application, the development team should keep these 2 things in their mind. And if you follow them by your heart then you will match the thousands of hearts.

  • Do not ever use free dating templates suggested by different websites. For example, it is not ethical to use rephrasing tools while writing, it is not ethical to use such templates for application building. No doubt it is not like copying and it is also called one of the most cost-efficient options for that but no. They are just unable to meet customers’ expectations. 
  • It is also advised to build native applications rather than hybrid ones. A native application has a lot of benefits in its way. When you build an application for both the operating systems i.e. Android and iOS it will not matter to bother about the user experience. If you are building a native application you are going to have a good audience.

How Much Does It Cost to Build a Dating App Like Tinder?

Well, we can not estimate the exact value to build a dating application. Because the final cost to develop an app like Tinder depends on certain aspects of the application like features, supported platforms, and integrations.

If you are trying to build any application the cost will reach $15,000. This value only implies the simple features of the applications. If you are trying to build a more complex version of the application then the cost may rise to $50000. In development, you will be charged for the basic admin panel and back-end development. And if you want some advanced features in your application then the cost of the application will touch the value of the hundred grand and no doubt it will go beyond it.

The development rate may differ from region to region. In Europe, average app development cost is $50/hour. For the USA the rate is $100-$150.


Developing a dating application is not a piece of cake for everyone and it is very tough to challenge the competition like Tinder. Because you could never think of the features that surpass the ideas of the developers of Tinder. It is too tough but not impossible. If you really want to build a dating app like Tinder that helps people find a date, which is indeed a pretty good thing, you should go for it. But keep the things mentioned above in your mind. Right?
