Pros: Once you get over the slight stalker complex Happn instils on you by showing women who walked past your front door an hour ago, matching with users within a 250 meter radius is atually quite handy.
Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
It could make future beers with your mates a little awkward.
Verdict: This app allows you to eliminate the middleman.
If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide USP: Endless personality quiz questions that give you a match percentage with would-be partners. If dating apps have an 'atmosphere', then How About We is a pleasant summer garden party where people enjoy polite conversation and no one makes an nappropriate lunge on anyone else until at least 1 am.
Pros: You can weed out people with traits or points of view you find simply unacceptable. Cons: Too many basic functions are restricted to paid membership. Te USP: It's a huge ocean, with more members than any of the others (around 70 million).
Verdict: Worth a shot, if ony to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.
The USP: Based around suggesting dates, rather than banging on about yourself. Cons: A high number of sexually frustrated virgin-trolls means a lot of women find using it a harrowing experience, which understandably makes them cagey when you come along.
It's disheartening how many women have to resort to 'please no sex pests' appendixs on their profile information.
These days when people talk about internet dating, they're usually talking about Tinder. Because Tinder is the app that removed the stigma and all the rest put in, by turning online romance into silly, shallow, fun game instead of purporting to be a serious (read: tragic) way to find true love.
