It will definitely encourage me to make the first move more often and it is empowering to be in the driving seat for a change.
The slogan: "Find the people you've crossed paths with" Availability: i Phone and Android Cost: Free The low-down: Have you ever seen Mr Dreamy on the bus only for him to get off three stops before you, vanishing forever?
The expert: This sounds like every stalker's dream, I'm not sure I would be convinced of its safety features, but it is a good way to make contact with someone who you've been eyeing from afar.
If you're the shy type, this app is the perfect buffer, if not, ditch the app and start conversation in the real world.
Too much choice can also be confusing for people, they get disinterested because there are so many other options - this is the perfect app if you want to slow things down.
The serial dater: I'm sick of talking to a million random men on Tinder - you inevitably get bored of the conversation and move on.
If you're tired of swiping right and ending up with another creep, Tinder isn't the only dating app out there, there's a huge variety of apps to choose from.
Dating may be tricky but most mobile apps operate the same way.
Half creepy and half ingenious, the app uses GPS tracking to present you with a list of people you've come into contact with.
The slogan: "Women make the first move" Availability: i Phone, i Pad, Kindle Fire or Android Cost: Free The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
Because the app is proximity-based, it also make things easier when it comes to setting up the date.
The serial dater: I loved the idea of this app, every morning on my way to work I crossed paths with the same guy, but I was never brave enough to ask him out.
