Since the launch of Tinder in 2012 the dating world has become a more fun and exciting place. Tinder cut out the long profiles of traditional websites and made dating apps the go-to method for meeting people online. However 5 years on there's now a whole array of dating apps to find exactly what you're looking for. We have gathered the best apps to help you find your soul mate or maybe just a fling for this weekend. Either way, you’re welcome!
This is an app that allows you to record an icebreaker question and record and listen to spontaneous responses. They say you can tell a lot by a person’s voice and this app proves that.
This is an app that connects people based on their interests and hobbies rather then generic profile stats meaning that your first date can be something more fun then just a pint in or pub – unless that is your mutual interest of course!
Did you go to an event last night and forget to get that girls number? No problem, this app allows you to connect after if you were at the same event or location so you can still chat to them the next day.
This dating app takes the awkwardness out of first dates and allows you to bring a friend, even the profiles have a plus one. If you get nervous going on dates alone then this app could be great for making you feel more relaxed – provided you can find a time when all four of you are free.
A lot of apps are tying to be the new Tinder but this app seems to have found its niche. Happn connects you with people you have crossed paths with in the street, adding an element of real life fate to the impersonal world of virtual dating. If you keep seeing the same girl on your train or in your local coffee shop, this app could connect you to that special person.
This app called its self the ‘anti-tinder’ by limiting your dating choice to one a day. It connects your Facebook accounts and matches people based on their profile info, gender, age, education, background, religion etc. The app promises quality over quantity for anyone suffering with a case of swipe fatigue.
What's not to love about this app? If you have a beard then find partners that love beards too. The beard trend is huge right now, so it's a look loads of women are looking for. Whether you have a bit of facial hair or full on cave man, this app is for you.
This app claims to change the rules of dating, putting the woman in the driving seat by always giving them the option to make the first move. If she doesn’t say something within 24 hours then the connection disappears.
