Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
Verdict: A dating app where women need not fear to tread, where the sting of rejection is largely removed for you. Pros: Less shallow than just swiping from a picture.
And unlike Tinder, users tend to write a bit about themselves, meaning you have more to go on (and sell yourself with) than just your 5 least-worst selfies. Cons: It is notoriously 'glitchy', with messages disappearing and some functions not working properly.
Verdict: The app that started it all, Grindr has been helping men who like men improve their sex lives since 2009. The USP: Members are vetted, and they also run IRL singles events.
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.
