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.
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.
, 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.
Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
It could make future beers with your mates a little awkward.
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.
