  2. eHarmony Online Dating App is the most trusted dating app where you can talk strangers around the world in the safe and secure environment.
    Eharmony gets to the nitty gritty details of who you are and what you want in a partner. Rather than just uploading your photos you also have to fill out a detailed ‘compatibility questionnaire’ which increases your chances of weeding out the bad eggs. The app doesn’t bombard you with matches either, they’ll only send you a few at a time so you can consider your options thoroughly before passing or accepting.

    Find people you've crossed paths with
    Online dating can take a lot of trial and error to meet the right person, and if you're honestly just looking to make dates more convenient by meeting somewhere close to you, Happn could be the dating app for you. It only shows you the profiles of people you've passed on the street, so you might have passed them at the train station or near your work. This app also only matches you with people who have also indicated their interest in you, so don't worry about unwanted messages from every random person you pass. You can make yourself stand out by clicking 'Charm' to get the attention of someone who is of particular interest.

  4. Each week there are thousands of new couples who find each other through Coffee Meets Bagel! Find your Everything Bagel today.
    If you find the onslaught of potential matches overwhelming on Tinder, then Coffee Meets Bagel could be the app for you. It will only give you one match a day, then ask you to give feedback on why or why not you chose the match to tailor your future matches to your tastes. The idea is so that you think a little bit more before swiping right or left, and take a little more time to get to know someone before making a judgement.

    Find people you want to date through your friends on Facebook.
    If you're someone who finds it easier to date people who you have a vague connection with, know already or can get a character reference on, then Hinge has you covered. It only matches you with third degree connections - so friends of friends, or through your work. You'll often find it attracts professionals, as you're encouraged to list your occupation in the profile.

    Bumble is a social network that allows you to feel empowered while you make those connections, whether you’re dating, looking for friends, or growing your professional network. One first move on Bumble could change your life.
    Bumble attempts to flip typical gender roles in dating by making it compulsory for the woman to make the first move in opposite sex matches. So women have to message first in order to start a conversation with a match. In same sex matches, anyone can make the move first.
