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.
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.It’s growing fast but unless you are in a big city it’s unlikely you’ll walk past many fellow users soon. Bristlr is a new dating service for bearded men, and the women who like them.Much like Tinder, you flick through your potential matches giving a yes or no based on their looks and if you both say yes, it’ll match you up for a chat.From there you can decide whether you want to meet up for a date and maybe a little beard stroking.The only prerequisite is that if you’re a man, you must have a beard.
