We can say this mobile dating app takes a bit of a different twist and requires you to share a bit of information. You need to connect this app to your Facebook account. Potential matches are found mostly from extended friends from your friend list, so the matches are reliable in that way if one thinks of security and safety.

If you believe in a more anonymous date search for starters, then Tinder is the right app for you.

This app can be counted among the largest online social dating apps available. This app is mostly for gay, bi sexual or bi curious men. If you are only looking for someone to talk to or someone to date then Grindr is a good option.
If you are a gay and on the look out for gay partners, I don’t think you need to go beyond Grindr.
Brenda is an app exclusive for lesbians. Bisexual women looking out for gay partners will find this app very fruitful. You can seek casual, no strings dates here.

It makes it easy to find someone that you have common interests with such as sport, the arts, dining out (or in) as well as finding those that like to go to a live dealer casino.

Like Match.com, users here are also connected to each other on common interest level. So once you have matched an in depth questionnaire with someone, you never know wedding bells might be ringing for you.
This app is a fit for today’s world. ‘One night stand’ is not an eye brow raiser term as of the present generation. Rather a dating app like Pure facilitates such meet ups. If you want to hook up with someone in your area, then the app sends requests to that person. The request will be visible to local users for an hour.
If someone with same mental compatibility finds the request interesting, a chat will be initiated by the app. Next, well, you know best where you are headed to.
Few apps allow users to keep their identity anonymous till you find your match. This app will keep your identity hidden as long as you want. That means if you start building a match, your identity is still not revealed. It is you who decides the right time and place to reveal your entire profile.
This app has a feature called ‘Ice breaker.’ It suggests topics which can be a common interest, to encourage chat among matches and thus you get to know your match more.
Hinge (Android, iOS)
Hinge allows weird randomness of meeting people online by introducing you to people that share your mutual friends on Facebook. This a great way to avoid people creeping up on you or other awkward situations but try to make sure that you have a good chance of meeting people who share the same experiences and interests.
You can log in to your Facebook account, enter your preferences, sexual orientation, age and location. Every day at noon, the app gives you with list of potential matches. The fact that you now have friends in common is thought to help with keeping you accountable and less likely to act like a jerk.

With this app, you have up to 24 hours to decide whether you like a profile or want to pass. If both express interest, CMB brings together in a private chatroom where you can get to know each other or even plan a date. Other features, such as the ability to view your mutual friends, can be unlocked by purchasing a virtual currency called “beans”. This fits the free dating apps and has in app purchases that you can get.
First Dating App
Well, here’s a first – actually it’s not, I think it’s our 14th on the list atm. But the site is called First and it’s innovative yet classic as well, in that it goes back to a classic way of dating, calling itself the “first real dating app”. First’s CEO, Truman Kain, has said to Mashable that his goal for the app is “getting you off your phone and onto the date”.
And considering how much time people spend on their phones and social media, First certainly offers a welcome, and slightly scary, alternative to online dating. It means you have to actually communicate with another person face to face, Yikes! It also means your have a better chance of meeting someone that you enjoy as well.
But don’t think you can mess around here – There’s a strict “No-Flake” policy so that if one ghosts another user on a date or is not who they say they are, they are banned – that’s it! Also, there’s a rating system (only seen by those who work on First) where users are able to rate how well the date went, which is a way for First to weed out who is and isn’t right for their app. A few successful dates in a row and you get the high honor of being “verified”, so that others know you are definitely who you say you are, and won’t flake on the date.
