If you don’t like your option, you can play ‘give or take’ - where you either ‘take’ a possible match or ‘give’ them away by emailing their details to a friend.
Your dates are called ‘bagels’ and the app is fun – especially if you like smartphone games.
It means you can join up with a friend, search for other pairs and go on a group date.
It’s based in the UK so most of the user base will be here, and it means you don’t have to worry so much about awkward silences or safety.
But the app has fallen in popularity compared to Tinder, and the fact that you can receive messages from anyone - without matching first - means that your inbox can quickly become clogged with sleaze. It matches you with people based on your location and a shared interest in music.
Cost: £10 per month This sells itself as a ‘feminist’ app.
The only issue is it makes the matching process a lot harder – two of you have to like two other people.
And what if you end up fancying the same person as your friend?
A friend who uses it tells me: “It’s good if you’re picky…
but there aren’t a lot of people on it.” Cost: Free I can’t really make a list of the best dating sites without mentioning Tinder. Tinder once had a reputation for being a ‘shagging app’ - but that's changed.
