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?
Pick your future partner based on their dog preferences, small, scruffy or otherwise.
Pros: Just think of all the cute dog meme sharing that could be yours.
The USP: Endless personality quiz questions that give you a match percentage with would-be partners. If dating apps have an 'atmosphere', then How About We is a pleasant summer garden party where people enjoy polite conversation and no one makes an inappropriate lunge on anyone else until at least 1 am.
Pros: You can weed out people with traits or points of view you find simply unacceptable. Cons: Too many basic functions are restricted to paid membership. The USP: It's a huge ocean, with more members than any of the others (around 70 million).
This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
£5 a week for the advanced user options is just too much, though.
Whether you love or loathe Tinder, 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: 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 it's matching you on your favourite interests or finding someone who you share mutual friends with.
