The slogan: "The only dating app that brings you one hand-picked quality match per day" Availability: i Phone and android Cost: Free The low-down: If you're plugged into the dating scene online, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the volume of matches and messages you get on dating apps.
Sometimes there are so many, scrolling through the mundane deluge of 'Hi, how is your day going,' can seem like a complete chore.
The expert: This sounds like every stalker's dream, I'm not sure I would be convinced of its safety features, but it is a good way to make contact with someone who you've been eyeing from afar.
If you're tired of swiping right and ending up with another creep, Tinder isn't the only dating app out there, there's a huge variety of apps to choose from.
Dating may be tricky but most mobile apps operate the same way.
The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
As soon as I signed up we matched and we're about to go on a first date.
The only downside is that my ex-boyfriend lives nearby so it's like he's literally always on my radar.Download the app, create a profile, upload some fabulous pictures, write an equally impressive bio and voila.But of course, not all dating apps are created equal; which is why we've turned to dating coach and relationship expert David Kavanagh as well as our in-house serial dater to give us their verdict on the apps that deserve to take up space on your home screen.The expert: I like the fact there is an external human element to this app.I would always recommend using a dating service where someone is actually screening people for their compatibility.I really like the idea of just investing in one person every day, and honestly, between work commitments and my social life, I don't have the time to talk to six different guys.
