Parading the hottest – and least obtainable – women in front of your face every time you log in feels a little bit manipulating / cynical.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.Whether you love or loathe Tinder, there is no denying it has changed online dating forever.
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.
Verdict: The more you think about it, the less sense Down makes.
Isn't the whole point of internet dating that you can meet someone new?
Cons: If the date goes horribly, there are no assurances you won't bump into her when you're buying milk a few days later.
Also, spend too much time on it and you start getting paranoid you're seeing 'someone you liked on Happn' every time you sit in your local cafe. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn't be an issue – your friends are bound to find out.
