It’s almost 2017 and dating apps have proven to not just be a fun fad, they are indeed here to stay. So which one is right for YOU? 


Like Tinder, Bumble involves swiping left & right, however, women have to make the first move starting the conversation. For same-sex pairs, anyone can speak first. It’s also advertised as ‘Find a Date, Meet Friends & Network’, so it’s not intended just for dating. 



"The Relationship App" partners you up with a Facebook friend of a Facebook friend. This way, you’re less likely to receive a string of D picks.  


Happn is kind of like How I Met Your Mother, except hopefully it doesn’t take 8 seasons to meet ‘the one’. Basically, it matches you up with people who are in the same place as you. So if you’re both in the book shop down the street, you’ll be notified. 


First, you fill out what you’re looking for - age, gender etc. Next, you’re paired up with just one person per day, making it more of a dating app than a hookup app.  


Initially a website, this one is a bit more old school with the users actually filling out a little survey (‘Favourite album of all time…’) in order to get matched.
