Update (11/27/23): Still having issues with messaging. Messages either just sit there saying "Sending," or go right to a red exclamation mark saying message can't be sent. When I cancelled my premium, messages started going through. Now that I have premium again, I have issues. What's the point of paying for premium? The whole purpose of the app is to communicate with others. Yet, all I can do is look at people.

Ad galore, expensive and multiple complex tiers. Blah. You have to restart the app a lot to get it to send messages. Ads are very frequent with very small boxes that send you to other places if you don't hit exactly the right spot. Plus you have to click close three times to get it to close the ad. Poorly developed.

It's a fine app, I like the ideas that they have for features. I like it overall. BUT! The WORST part about this app is the messaging. Messages always fail to send so I have to close the app and wait about 10 seconds, reopen the app, and then resend the message. I have to do this maybe every other message, or every 5 minutes, or everytime I come back onto the app after it was minimized. This is incredibly frustrating. The main function of the app is messaging and it's abysmal. Please fix this!
