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.Cons: If the date goes horribly, there are no assurances you won't bump into her when you're buying milk a few days later. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn't be an issue – your friends are bound to find out.Also, spend too much time on it and you start getting paranoid you're seeing 'someone you liked on Happn' every time you sit in your local cafe. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
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.Verdict: This app allows you to eliminate the middleman.If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide open.It's disheartening how many women have to resort to 'please no sex pests' appendixs on their profile information.
Verdict: Easy to navigate, simple and free to use, void of distracting gimmicks. Pros: Easy and efficient to use, you can find a hookup within minutes.
Whether you love or loathe Tinder, there is no denying it has changed online dating forever.
