Who wants to date somebody who like Chihuahuas after all?
The USP: Gives you the chance to tell your friends (rather than strangers) that you want to sleep with them.
The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.
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.

This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
And unlike Tinder, users tend to write a bit about themselves, meaning you have more to go on (and sell yourself with) than just your 5 least-worst selfies. Cons: It is notoriously 'glitchy', with messages disappearing and some functions not working properly. Selector .selector_input_interaction .selector_input. Selector .selector_input_interaction .selector_spinner. Whether you love or loathe Tinder, there is no denying it has changed online dating forever.The USP: If you're dog-obsessed here is where you can rest assured you're in good company.Pick your future partner based on their dog preferences, small, scruffy or otherwise.Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.Verdict: The more you think about it, the less sense Down makes.Chances are you live or work in the same area, so arranging a date becomes a lot simpler.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.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).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.
