Verdict: A well-intended app that tries to convey your personality rather than just transferring your Instagram feed but the pressure to think up facts can be overwhelming.
Verdict: This app allows you to eliminate the middleman.
If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide open.
Verdict: Worth a shot, if only 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.
Pros: Less shallow than just swiping from a picture.
Cons: Tweets are still not a totally accurate picture of someone.
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 actually quite handy.
Chances are you live or work in the same area, so arranging a date becomes a lot simpler.
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?
