    "Pure is probably the most popular and best to use app out there. They are constantly innovating and improving the app. I can search by location, body type, eye color, etc. Contacting members is easy and I have had no problem finding dates. In fact, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming with how many messages you get but of course it all depends on how much you reach out and respond to others. I liek that you can also view members from around the world not just local. Good for travelling singles."

    "I'd Give This 5 Stars If... ..it had the option to control who can contact me such as age limitations and locations. I don't like getting bombarded by boys and people from countries I feel uncomfortable communicating with. At least it should be included into the premium package. What you already have for premium matchmaking app is worthless. Also this app requires data connection only. Really? Not everyone has unlimited data. :("

    "Learned how to use tinder and it really seemed exciting! I liked it at first but I realized the dating landscape of this app isnt for me? I found a good alternative to tinder called Bumble and it worked well for me. STILL i cant deny how fun Tinder was for me 😜"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that you can buy a 50,000 square foot mansion using the condom money of the United States of America? As silly as it sounds, approximately 450 million condoms are sold each year. With each one costing about 45 cents, summing that up will lead you to 202,500,000 whopping dollars a year! Suffice to say, that is more than enough to let you score a luxurious home in an even more luxurious neighborhood located in sunny California no less! It’s easy to say that the stack of cash earned by condom sales alone is impressive, but with at least 1 out of 7 people living with HIV, upholding reproductive wellness should rightfully be in everyone’s best interest. Not to mention that sexually transmitted diseases toll up to 48 million cases a year! The rise in teenage pregnancy worldwide can also be combatted simply by using this little rubber. 

Don’t feel bad about the money you’re spending on condoms because your health should always come first, even if there’s an extremely fancy Californian home in the line. Besides, it might get too challenging for you not to buy condoms with the solutions we have on this list for you. So the next time you’re planning on getting busy with someone you met on the best hookup apps found on this list, make sure you stay protected from diseases. Lacking inspiration for your next date? Try these cute date ideas to get the conversation going real smooth or check out this list of sex chat apps to spice things up.

    "This looks to be a decent dating app that shows pictures and lets me choose who I want without the other person knowing until I meet them. I do like the secret admirer part of the app but it says it is available for IOS only so most android users couldn't use it."

    "Lucky is the anonymous hookup app for people who're looking for casual encounters. It claims to be the best alternative to Craigslist Personals since it's nameless and Facebook-less. The set up is very easy — all you need to get started is a selfie that doesn't have to include your face."
