Just Ask Me Out is currently limited to London (where it also organises free dating events), but says it hopes to expand across the UK soon.
Top 10 Tips for Picking a First Date Venue That Isn't a Shambles Just landed in the UK, Hinge bills itself as a "classier Tinder" and helps you connect with friends of friends (we think Tinder's plenty classy, but hey).
Between matching with someone, completing the obligatory ''is this person a stalker?
' chat, and finally arranging to meet up, it's not uncommon for one or both parties to lose interest along the way.
No longer is it considered sad or weird to say you first met your partner digitally, a shift to the mainstream largely down to the success of one app: Tinder.
Launched back in 2012, it burned into the spotlight and never swiped back, becoming a fixture on Home screens all over the world.
The free version gives you the basic ability to batch like, but to use the app more than once, you'll have to give it a five star review or share your dirty little secret on social media - a complete con, obviously, but probably worth the hassle as its ads are less intrusive than other add-ons. Alternatives with similar functionality that won't strong-arm you into giving it a positive review include Tinderly, which is available on i OS and Android (where it goes by Swiper Liker), and Bonfire.
How I Used Tinder to Travel the World Another annoying thing about Tinder is that actually arranging a date can take ages.
Numerous third-party apps boast this functionality, but Tools for Tinder is the fastest and most sophisticated.
The premium version gives you access to loads of filters (useful when you're about to like 1,000 people) and other neat stuff, like background auto-liking and the ability to manually change your GPS location (so you can scout potential matches at places you're travelling to in advance).
The parties involved take care of each other so that the privacy of their relationship stays intact, and the site makes this possible by providing an anonymous and discreet interface.
According to a survey conducted by My Secret.love, most people have already cheated at least once, and 80% of cheaters didn't at all regret that either party to the affair was in a relationship.
