Best new dating site
Whether it's matching you on your favourite interests or finding someone who you share mutual friends with. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn't be an issue – your friends are bound to find out.
Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do differently and what sets them apart. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Pros: It's a non-swiping app and allows you a smaller pool of potential dates tailored to your taste.
Cons: Just because someone looks like Tom Hardy or Jessica Alba doesn't mean they will behave like them!
This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.
Pros: A refreshingly open approach to dating in a time where many people's profiles and aims are very misleading.
Cons: Exes might not be keen on leaving a review of a former lover, worse still spurned lovers might want to sabotage your future chances Verdict: A noble goal in a time where online dating can feel toxic but we imagine if wouldn't take much for your credit rating to be bust.
It could make future beers with your mates a little awkward.
The USP: Gives you the chance to tell your friends (rather than strangers) that you want to sleep with them.
Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.
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.
