Chances are you've probably heard of Tinder, the mobile dating app that's become so huge it has changed the way traditional online dating sites approach their mobile presence.
Not only that, but it has had a bit of an impact on language and culture with terms like "swipe left" having a new meaning, and the emergence of "Tinderellas" and "Tinderfellas". Designed by three sisters, all of whom are still actively looking for the one, Coffee Meets Bagel aims to make dating easier, far less creepy and a lot more rewarding.
But, saying that, you know what they say about patience: it’s a virtue -- plus, good things apparently come to those who wait too, so maybe this is a good thing after all? There’s a huge variety of users, so everybody should be able to find somebody on it.
One of the more polished setups, OK Cupid has TONS of users regardless of where you are in the world. The website is pretty decent too, and if you upgrade your profile you get access to a bunch of unique features like being able to see who likes you and anonymous browsing.
If you’re bored of Tinder, you’ll definitely want to check OK Cupid out. If you like someone you can press on the heart button and if the feeling isn’t mutual, they’ll never know.
The twist with Happn is it only includes potentials that you've been near recently.
The promotional section of Bristlr’s website reads, "Instead of asking if you're single or taken, or looking for men or women, Bristlr simply asks you if you have a beard.
You can find people near you who either have beards, or are looking to meet people with beards.
"Bristlr also provides a beard-rating option, so you can find out how well a potential date's beard ranks compared to other bearded locals." The service was created by software developer John Kershaw.
The 28-year-old from Manchester said he came up with the idea “as a joke” but it seems like it may be taking off further than he expected.
If you’ve walked past someone in the street you can then flick the heart button and you can start to chat with them.
It's finally a solution to the Sliding Doors problem.
The big problem with Happn is the lack of people using it.
