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.
Verdict: Worth a shot, if only to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.
The USP: Based around suggesting dates, rather than banging on about yourself. Cons: A high number of sexually frustrated virgin-trolls means a lot of women find using it a harrowing experience, which understandably makes them cagey when you come along.
Whether they are honest about it or not, every heterosexual internet dating app out there aspires to be the 'Grindr for straight people'. Pros: The screening process ensures out-and-out perverts are banished, which means everyone wins (except the perverts).
The fun and well organised events means membership feels a bit more like a club, and less like pin-balling around a vast galaxy of random singletons.
Cons: People might think basing your future parter on dog preferences is weird Verdict: A silly app that seems unlikely to find you true love but might narrow down options.
Who wants to date somebody who like Chihuahuas after all?
, there is no denying it has changed online dating forever.
As a result there is now no end of apps with the same aim of helping you fall in love and live happily ever after, or at the least find someone to hang out with next weekend.
