Have a particular passion for men with beards? Bristlr could be the one for you. For some people, swiping through fellow singles and potential romantic partners is merely a bit of fun and a way to entertain themselves during TV ad breaks. We have been on many dates and our phone has been pinging with notifications non-stop trying to keep conversations going with lots of different men is actually quite the commitment — some dating apps are high-maintenance.
All the apps allow you to search for men, women or both, with all of them available on iOS devices, most on Android and some for Windows Phone, too. However there are also plenty of people using Tinder just for hook-ups. You can pay money for premium features including Tinder Passport the ability to swipe through matches elsewhere in the world, say, before a trip and Rewind, for those times when you swipe left too hastily and immediately regret it.
Bumble is much like Tinder but with one key difference: The idea behind it is to save women from receiving leering advances or cringey chat-up lines from men, and it also takes the pressure off guys to start conversations. Similarly, your match only has 24 hours to reply — if he does though, the time limit disappears for future messages. You create your profile through Facebook and can also link your Instagram and Spotify accounts if you like, set your preferences, then scroll down through your options.
Download for iOS , Android or Windows Phone. We noticed both a different type of person and questions on Match compared to the likes of Tinder and Bumble. This is an app for people really looking for relationships. The app is easy to use but we personally found the number of messages, winks, views and favourites we received overwhelming. You got 4 matches today! Extra dedicated users can spend money and even exchange messages with a match-maker too.
It made a nice change to have lots of information about people including little quirky details. The app claims to learn your tastes too, although it seems rare to start conversations. Like most apps, signing in with Facebook makes it very easy and quick to set up a profile. The unique thing about Huggle is that you pick initially five of your favourite places — be they shops, restaurants or parks — and then find people who go there too.
