The USP: Like Tinder, except once you match, only the ladies can make the first move and say hello.
Pros: It means women have an extra barrier against the 'hey hun wanna fuk?? It also means if she's got in touch with you, you definitely weren't an 'accidental swipe', meaning you'll be leaving less of those unanswered hellos that slowly chip away at your soul. Though one minor gripe is that Bumble's algorithm clearly pulls ten of the highest rated profiles to the top of your feed every time you log in.
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.
Cons: After sending someone a message, you're notified when they're checking your profile, which means you can actually see yourself being rejected in real time. Verdict: Pulling together the best elements of other older dating apps, Inner Circle is the best all-rounder out there with the highest quantity of people you'd actually like to meet.
Verdict: This app allows you to eliminate the middleman.
The USP: Connect with verified millionaires Pros: The site boasts a large portfolio of high earners and offers 24/7 customer service for their members. Luxy does however offer high security to protect your privacy and weeds out people looking for a sugar daddy or mumma.
The USP: Fall in love with someone who shares your music taste Pros: A nice way to connect with people on something you're passionate about or it can be used to find friends to visit gigs with.
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?
