    "Happn is alright, if you don't mind that the initial anonymity of not knowing who or where this person might be from is completely gone. It's almost eerie to know sometimes that the people messaging you inappropriate things know where you go often and what your interests are! I feel like I'm going to be stalked more than anything."

    "Great in theory. I have actually used this and it IS good for meeting people. A problem arises though, because you have to wade through A LOT of Catfish men, men who use other's profile pics and are NOT who they say they are in their bio's. You'll know one when he's available to talk, only at odd hours, never can "meet up" with you, and at a later point, starts needing you to send money. Truly, I have yet to find one of these that are easy to find good dates. "

    "Like most dating apps, if you pay, they will nickle and dime you to death, and not likely let you cancel anything at all. I think they're kind of fun apps if you use them right and don't expect too much. "

    "This is a good alternative to Tinder. The community is pretty good in comparison. I've had a lot of fun using it. Highly recommended for casual daters!"

    #5Bumble

    Bumble

    Bumble is a dating app where women make the first move and a respond must be done within 24 hours or else the connection will expire, which is changing the archaic dating rules. But, in same-sex matches, either person can message first.

    "As soon as anyone shows something can be a thing, everyone else wants a piece. With technology, they can jump on the bandwagon without having to really go through a lot of hassle. Code comes quick if you've got a programmer or two, and the rest is down to marketing. Which is what the problem with dating apps is. Without a lot of users, they can't help you no matter how good or bad their tech is. I looked at this because I thought it might have better features than other dating apps, but really it doesn't matter if it does because not enough people are using it. I can already sit at the bar not getting dates; I don't need to load my phone down with useless apps that won't fill my Friday nights."

    "This app, in my experience is mostly for horny men and gold digger women. You have to be very careful meeting new people this way. It does work for a certain type of person. If you're the risk taking type, then go for it on Grindr"

    "I suppose on of these apps is as good as another as far as you can trust people to be HONEST about themselves. You calculate the risk."
