Best Dating Apps That Will Let You Into The Digital Dating Pool


Living in a fast moving world has us bound to our smartphones day and night. From waking up, to planning our day and sharing our thoughts, so why should finding a partner and dating be any different? Going online to find a matching partner is no news and now you can do it with the comfort and availability of your smartphone through a free and easy to use hookup app.

Finding a night fling or a true love match with the help of a good dating app is now easier than browsing and shopping online. And way more fun! While the left and right swipes are trying to make a history, you can be out of the game, if you don’t know what that means. Get back in the saddle and download these top rated free dating apps, now.



With over one billion swipes processed daily, Tinder is THE dating app. You’ve probably heard of it, even if you are not in the dating pool. Tinder popularized dating apps as a viable option for date seekers everywhere. Also, it introduced the now famous and much copied swipe. Swipe left if you are not interested and to the right if you are.

All you need is a Facebook account, select your preferred sex, age range and distance. If the other person also swipes you right, that means that you are a match and you can start a mutual conversation in a chat box. New characteristics to Tinder are the options to connect Instagram to your account and the new Super Like swipe. A swipe up on someone’s photo means you really, really super like them and they will be able to see that before they swipe you left or right.





If you are a girl who likes to take matters into her own hands, or a guy who prefers girls doing the first move, Bumble is the best dating app for you. Developed by the co-founders of Tinder, it shares the principle of swiping left and right on user’s profile pictures. However, after the match is done, it’s up to the girl to strike up the conversation. After 24 hours, if she stays silent the match is gone forever. However, the guy can use the option to extend the match for additional 24 hours and wait for a response. This window of opportunity is available only for one match a day, so guys use it wisely.


Coffee Meets Bagel

This popular dating app is not for the gastronomy fans, as the name might strike you. The name was inspired by the tasty match made in heaven: coffee and bagels. But, it is for the cautious ones. Coffee meets Bagel also uses your Facebook profile, but offers you matches from the lists of friends of friends, so it gives users the comfort of choosing from people who know your friends and are not complete strangers. Another interesting “catch” with this dating app is that prospective daters only get to choose one bagel with their coffee a day, at noon. The app might seem a bit restrained, but it stands out with the notion that, as it says on its site, “it’s “designed for singles who want to find something real with little or no effort.”




How About We

If you are interested in actually going on a date and not just browsing what’s out there, How About We is an excellent dating app that gets you involved from the start. The basis of this app is to propose an interesting date scenario. Then you wait for someone to find that immensely cute and irresistible. Also, you can let another user know that their date idea is excellent and comment on it. Once the person who posted the original idea accepts the liker, it’s time for an actual date. The mobile dating app has an interactive Date Map where you can search and find the local date scenarios, which is kind of awesome. Time to brainstorm, not?



You know how people say you might be passing by your true love everyday. It may happen on your way to work or in the coffee shop, where you go to every morning. Happn counts on that being the ultimate fairy tale. So, it offers that to the users of the dating app that cross paths in real life. You can then like or pass on their profile photos. Once you have a match, called Crush, you can start a conversation with that person. We admit it is a bit creepy, but the fairy tale factor beats the creepiness when you’re fishing for a date, right? This hookup app has a new extra feature. It allows users to put songs on their app profiles. Also, you can send songs to the Crushes you are matched with.





A common interest is so cute and music scores high on that list. Remember high school and how awesome it was talking to your crush about your favorite band or album? Tastebuds is an online dating app that plays in that key. You are matched with app users in your selected location area, that share your taste in music. All you have to do is share your favorite bands and artists. Or, simply scan your iPhone music library to your profile and wait for someone to strike a chord. Old school, right? The app is not limited to seeking romantic dates only. People also use it to find other people with the same taste in music. Or, pair with a concert buddy with whom they can party with.
