“LOVOO is cool, cool, and again cool! I really love it. I spend every spare minute on it and always manage to find someone. I know, other similar apps offer much more features and nearly turn to the social mini-networks, but I don’t have that much time studying in my Uni and working on two jobs. LOVOO is perfect to me as it gives results without spending hours there and trying to figure out how it works. I don’t need to do much and have a brainstorm trying to position myself from the best side: I just put my best photo there and voila, I go out with someone! I think it’s really a good finding for someone lonely who is too busy in his offline life but wants good qualitative dates in between.” (Lisa, New York City)
LOVOO app doesn’t offer anything unique or extremely effective, but at least it doesn’t take advantage of the singles like some other platforms: it’s genuine and reliable. It provides online flirt and offline meetings with real people, instead of overloading the users with bots and fake profiles. However, it’s rather for young people who tend to be superficial in their search and judge mostly by photos. If one is an older, more profound, and idealistic person, it’s the wrong app for him. It’s almost impossible to find someone on LOVOO basing on personality traits. The very basic criterions are: a nice appearance, and geographic closeness. So yes, it’s definitely a hookup dating app but if one is lucky, he can find something better.
There aren’t more complaints on LOVOO than on other average dating apps, it’s always the same: some scammers and time wasters can happen on one’s way but the majority of users are genuine. Those are just young and merry people from 17 to 25 y.o. who want some fun. But who said marriages never start from having fun? LOVOO has some nice success stories that it gladly shares. Therefore, chances to meet someone decent or at least honest and pretty are quite high.
On another hand, the most common problem of dating apps for youngsters is their total similarity to Tinder and the absence or lack of social features. If LOVOO was a more full-ledged platform with blogs, tips, and fun tests, it would be way more popular among its target audience. For this particular reason, we don’t rate this app too high and keep on considering it average. It’s effective and honest, yes; and its price is very fair, achievable even for students. But its developers could do better and go further in their wish to connect young people.
It also doesn’t provide any serious safety features which are so crucial for late teens and millenials. It prefers to let them be and do their thing without a caring accompanying so it’s another big minus. Some parents wouldn’t be happy with that but after all, this app is for young adults and they just have to be a bit wiser while using it.
