Facebook online dating sites
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.
Verdict: The app that started it all, Grindr has been helping men who like men improve their sex lives since 2009. The USP: Members are vetted, and they also run IRL singles events.
You can imagine the grounded people that lurk on there. Verdict: Aside the obviously Dickensian classism all over the site, it also has an understandably odd mixture of trust fund brats and retired divorcees.
The USP: Connect with verified millionaires Pros: The site boasts a large portfolio of high earners and offers 24/7 customer service for their members. Luxy does however offer high security to protect your privacy and weeds out people looking for a sugar daddy or mumma.
This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.
Pros: It means women have an extra barrier against the 'hey hun wanna fuk?? It also means if she's got in touch with you, you definitely weren't an 'accidental swipe', meaning you'll be leaving less of those unanswered hellos that slowly chip away at your soul. Though one minor gripe is that Bumble's algorithm clearly pulls ten of the highest rated profiles to the top of your feed every time you log in.It's disheartening how many women have to resort to 'please no sex pests' appendixs on their profile information.
