Dating sites in norway 2016 marriage minded dating sites
Cons: After sending someone a message, you're notified when they're checking your profile, which means you can actually see yourself being rejected in real time. Verdict: Pulling together the best elements of other older dating apps, Inner Circle is the best all-rounder out there with the highest quantity of people you'd actually like to meet.
£5 a week for the advanced user options is just too much, though.
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.
Also, spend too much time on it and you start getting paranoid you're seeing 'someone you liked on Happn' every time you sit in your local cafe. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Verdict: A well-intended app that tries to convey your personality rather than just transferring your Instagram feed but the pressure to think up facts can be overwhelming.
As a result there is now no end of apps with the same aim of helping you fall in love (or at the very least get lucky).
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.
The USP: Gives you the chance to tell your friends (rather than strangers) that you want to sleep with them.
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.
