If you’re playing the online dating game, you might be trying to find the best app to make it worth your while and this is the number one dating app in Florida.

Online dating can be a bit like playing a game of Russian roulette – you never know what you’re going to get. But hey, that’s what makes it exciting, right?

I feel like each app has its own personality. Tinder of course is known for hookups. Popular on college campuses and for those traveling out of town looking for a good time. Bumble is for the women who want control. They have had it with creepy men sliding into the DM’s and want to take back the power. And FarmersOnly is well, for farmers. Other than those, I don’t know too much about the online dating world to be honest. I tried Match back in the day, but it was like a full-time job that I wasn’t getting any benefits from, so I gave that up about as quick as I signed up.

When it comes to the dating apps, my favorite part are the profile pictures. We’ve all seen them: the shirtless mirror selfies, the group photos where you can’t tell who the person is, the dog/cat/hamster photos that make you wonder if they’re trying to date you or their pet. But my personal favorite, especially in Florida, has to be the “holding a fish” photo. Why is this a thing? Because you HAD a great catch means you ARE a great catch?

If you’re single in Florida and looking to mingle and are looking for the best dating app out there, or at least the most popular, I’ve got the answer. WhistleOut analyzed search data to find the most popular dating apps in every state. They didn’t include Tinder because it’s the most downloaded nationwide with over 950,000 downloads each month. So excluding Tinder, the team found in Florida the most popular dating app to be Bumble.

So work out those thumbs and get swipin’! There’s love out there waiting for you!

Beautiful food can be a precursor for romance for many people. These restaurants have it.

I wrote a story about romantic dining for USA Today’s online travel outlet, 10Best sometime ago. I have to admit that I was a little sad to go back and read it. Several of the places  listed in the article were destroyed or severely damage by Hurricane Ian on September 28th. Some might come back. However, others sadly wont. The list contains several restaurants on Southwest Florida’s barrier islands. Of those listed, a couple have reopened.

Romantic restaurants in Fort Myers open since Hurricane Ian

Il Cielo is one of them. I drove by the Sanibel Island spot a few days ago and was happy to see cars in the parking lot.

In addition, there is Tarpon Lodge on the end of Pine Island. The spot has been a bit precarious to get to. However, the restaurant and the Inn are open and ready to receive guests. This is a great place to watch a sunset and stay overnight in an historic spot. It’s old Florida at it’s best.

Everyone has a different idea of romance, however, these are places that stand out in the traditional since. Here are the top five most romantic restaurants in Fort Myers area. The ones that are open in times for Valentines Day 2023.
