With so many different dating apps available these days, finding the right one for you can be a challenge. At Beyond Ages, we want you to spend less time searching the app store and more time on exciting dates. In service to that, we have put together the most comprehensive Feeld review you will find anywhere.
Originally known as 3nder (“Thrinder”) until August 2016, Feeld is a dating app similar to Tinder and Bumble but with one major difference: It’s designed for more than just vanilla dating. If you’re single, or a couple looking to explore kinks or invite others into the bedroom, Feeld aims to make that possible.
This kind of time and financial investment makes for better reviews. More than that, being active in the dating world myself keeps me up to date for more helpful dating advice all around.
Now, let’s talk about my experience with the Feeld app and our recommendations for using it.
There’s a lot to talk about in this review of the Feeld dating app, and we’ll get into the specifics soon. First, I want to give you a high-level overview of the most important factors.
To put these in context, we’ve also compared it to Adult FriendFinder, one of Feeld’s better-known competitors. Fancy features in an app are great, but if they can’t satisfy these fundamentals, apps can become quite painful to use.
Our team rates each site objectively based on many hours of independent research, the features each site offers, and how it compares with other sites. The ratings are the opinion of our editors and their extensive experience.

Will the time and money spent using this site pay off for an average person based on the opinions and experience of our editors.
As you can probably tell from this overview, I found the Feeld app to be “okay”. The biggest drawback was the smaller user base. From my experience, the app did feel safe and secure and in no way a scam.
In our experience, most people (guys especially) are going to get better results using Adult FriendFinder’s free trial. What you have over 90,000,000 active users like AFF it is really hard to compete, even for a decent app like Feeld.
If you’re looking to explore things sexually, Feeld is a great way to get started. The relative anonymity takes away some of the intimidation that can put people off taking that first step.
If you’re in a relationship, it also allows you to link your profile to your significant others’ so everyone can see. This takes a lot of the guesswork out of the process and makes for more informed decisions. Attraction and consent are obviously huge parts of any kind of kink play, so the more information you have, the better.
Being able to link profiles means if you’re single and interested in a couple, you can see them both. You see the potential match’s profile like any other app as well, as their partner’s, so there are no surprises.
This means swiping with confidence in an area that can often be a little risky.
Another important difference between Feeld and standard dating apps is you can use an alias. If you’re putting yourself out there looking for something risque, an alias can help you feel more comfortable doing so.
Unfortunately for the app creators, I wouldn’t suggest paying for the Majestic membership. The free version already offers everything I found useful.
While I’ve already covered a lot of ground, I want to go even deeper in our review of Feeld so that you can be sure of what you’d be signing up for. Now, let’s take an even closer look at some of the specific pros and cons that struck me during my six weeks diving into Feeld.
Check out the major positives and negative points below.
Without high-quality profiles and photos, dating apps aren’t much good to anyone. Thankfully, the quality of both on Feeld was very high.
Of the hundreds of profiles I looked at, only five of them were low quality. In terms of attractive people, I was also pleasantly surprised, to be honest. To give you an idea, roughly 10% of the profiles I saw were very attractive and about 60% were average or better.
Overall I’d say the quality and attractiveness of the people I saw was on par with Tinder. Naturally, this will vary based on your location and range, but I was excited each time I got another match.
Given the nature of what people are looking for on this app, I expected to see a lot of generic profiles. Instead, it felt just like I was using Tinder for the most part. The profile photos are often the same type and quality, and people actually take the time to write a bio.
I could only point out two major differences between Feeld profiles and other dating apps. That’s the fact that people are far more open about what they’re looking for and don’t mind showing it.
That makes sense, of course, given the purpose of the app. For example, I’m very used to seeing “I don’t do hookups” on Tinder and Bumble profiles (then hooking up with them two days later. . . ugh, cultural expectations). On Feeld, on the other hand, some women show themselves in lingerie and state exactly what they’re looking for.
If you’re sex-positive and looking to explore, this is very refreshing.
The other major difference is that you’ll be presented with both sexes as a potential match. The first time I matched with a guy (part of a couple looking for a third) felt very strange, so be prepared for that.
All in all, I didn’t come across a single profile I would consider to be fake. Which is more than I can say for regular dating apps. The closest I found to a fake profile was a woman openly looking for guys to film with, offering her handle so you can see what she does.
Even then, the openness is a pleasant change.
If you’ve ever used Tinder or Bumble, the design of the app will feel very familiar.
You’re presented with profiles of people that fit the criteria you’ve defined. You’ll see profile photos you can scroll through and a short bio. Tap the photo to see a larger version, and you select either a heart or a “-” to determine if you’re interested or not.
If you both like each other, it’s a match, and you can then start chatting to them within the app. All very standard and, honestly, nothing for me to elaborate on further.
Also just like the usual dating apps, chatting felt very familiar. You have a chat tab at the bottom. From here you’ll see new Connections across the top and existing conversations in a list. The layout, functionality and features here are identical.
Over the six weeks I was using Feeld, I had 63 matches. I reached out to each of these matches when I was ready and got a response and conversation from 42 of them. That’s a 67% response rate. This might sound low, but after paying for the Majestic membership, the reason became clear.
Majestic allowed me to see when these Connections were last online. In all but one instance, the Connections that didn’t reply didn’t seem to use the app anymore. That is one minor drawback of an app designed for people to explore — users will come and go from it even more than Tinder.
While the chat functionality is the same as other dating apps, there’s one cultural difference with Feeld. It’s common to match with a couple in here and, naturally, you want to talk to both of them before meeting.
While the app does offer a group message function, very few seem to use it. Instead, once you’re both comfortable, the expectation is that you exchange Kik profiles and chat on there. Kik then allows you to start a group chat with the three (or more) of you safely.
If you don’t have a Kik account, I’d suggest setting one up if you plan to use Feeld. Don’t be surprised when someone suggests you move the chat over — it’s a safe move.
How to communicate on Feeld
This is a small detail I wanted to add here as well. Feeld is a very sexual app but that doesn’t actually change how you should be talking to your matches all that much.
You don’t have to be coy about what you want but that doesn’t mean you should be crass. Both (all?) of you need to establish a level of comfort before anything else can happen. My suggestion would be to let your profile set out what you’re looking for and keep the chat very normal.
Matching with someone that’s openly looking for casual sex isn’t an invitation to start with “you’re hot, want to bang?”
Keep it classy, figure out if the two of you get along and escalate to the sexual stuff from there.
As I mentioned earlier, I feel as though the free Feeld membership gives you everything you need.
It allows you to:
Since you can control who you see, match with them and chat, that’s about all you need here.
Although I did use the paid version for this review, those “Majestic” features didn’t influence the outcome. I would have seen, matched with, chatted to and met those same couples on the free version.
See below for a list of features unique to their “Majestic” membership.
Just like its more popular counterparts, Feeld is a dating app with no ads whatsoever. Presumably, the revenue from their Majestic members is enough, as that seems to be their only source of income.
I’ve been using the app for six weeks now — about two weeks free and the rest as a Majestic member. I’ve yet to see a single advertisement of any kind which adds to the overall trustworthy feel of the app.
On that note, if you are using it and enjoy the app, you might want to consider the paid version just to support the developers.
The pricing model for the Feeld dating app is very simple since you have two options. Free or the paid “Majestic” membership.
The paid membership gives you two options. Either monthly for $11.99 or three months for $23.99 (USD), making it $8.00 per month.
When signing up for the Majestic membership, you get these perks:
In my opinion, none of these are a good enough reason to pay the subscription. The only feature I found vaguely helpful was seeing who liked me. Even then though, it wasn’t a game-changer.
As I mentioned earlier, I think the best reason to pay for this app is to support the developers. They’ve produced a strong, reliable app with no ads, and I think that’s worth supporting.
Feeld is a popular and interesting app. Naturally, that means people are asking a lot of questions about it.
To finish up my review, I wanted to go over the more common topics I’ve seen people asking about. If I’ve missed anything, go ahead and ask about it in the comments, and we can update it for you here!
Feeld is a dating app designed for more than just one-on-one dating. The name, Feeld, is a reference to ‘playing the field’ which sums up exactly the purpose of the app.
The primary focus is to allow people to meet up and explore their sexuality with others. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, it allows you to explore your kinks freely.
You even have the ability to link your account with your partner’s so you can match and chat together.
To log into Feeld, you will need a Facebook account. You can download the Feeld app and follow the prompts to authenticate via Facebook.
Unfortunately, if you don’t have a Facebook account, you cannot use Feeld.
There are countless alternatives to Feeld. We could write an entire article to answer this question alone. . . so we did! If you want some alternatives to Feeld, go ahead and check out the Best Hookup Apps and Sites.
Everything you really need to do with this app can be done with the free version. Simply create a profile by logging in with your Facebook account and go from there!
This free account lets you see, match with and chat to other members without restriction. I covered this in more detail above — check it out for more info.
Canceling a paid subscription for Feel has to be done through your App store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android). Follow the steps below for your device.
Deleting your Feeld account only takes a few steps:
You can use the Feeld app for free. If you’d like to upgrade to the paid “Majestic” membership, you get two options. Either monthly for $11.99 or three months for $23.99 (USD), making it $8.00 per month.
Yes, Feeld is a legitimate dating app. I haven’t come across any indication that might suggest otherwise. In fact, I haven’t even seen any mention of a Feeld scam online, which is very promising.
No, there is no Feeld scam. All interactions I’ve had with users in this app have been legitimate.
Once you’ve matched with someone on Feeld, you’re then able to chat to them directly within the app. If you tap the speech bubble tab at the bottom of the app, you can see your messages and matches.
Much like any dating app, you’ll see new matches across the top and all conversations below it. Simple!
Since Feeld is a dating app rather than a website, you can’t ‘search’ in the traditional sense. Instead, you’re presented with a range of matches in your area that fit your criteria.
For each match you see, you can tap the heart if you like them or the ‘-’ if you don’t. If you like someone and they like you too, that’s a match. Now you can chat.
Feeld is a dating app designed for singles and couples looking to explore with others.
At its core, it’s much like any other dating app. You set up a profile and specify a few basic parameters, like distance and age.
From there, you’re presented with profiles of people who fit those parameters, and you decide if you’re interested in them or not. If both of you are interested in each other, it’s a match (or “Connection”, in Feeld parlance) and are free to chat and escalate from there.
The biggest difference is that because it’s also designed for couples to use together, you can link profiles. If you see the profile of a woman who says she’s in a relationship and they’re looking for a third, you can scroll down and see his profile too.
Feeld uses Facebook as a simple, secure way to verify user accounts and age. Here’s what Feeld has to say about it on their website:
“We know not everyone likes Facebook, but they’ve built a strong verification system that we rely on to keep Feeld a safe community of real people… it makes us much safer than some other dating sites…”
It’s also important to note they don’t interact with your Facebook account at all beyond verification. The app will never post to your timeline, send private messages or do anything that lets your Facebook friends know you use Feeld.
Yes. As mentioned above, Feeld relies on Facebook for verification of real users and age. The drawback is that you cannot use Feeld without a Facebook account.
Yes. For an added level of anonymity, you can hide your profile from any Facebook friends that use Feeld.
To do this, you’ll need to pay for their Majestic membership. Once you’ve done this, go to your profile, tap Majestic Membership then tap the slider to activate “Hide from Friends”.
