Whether you've been on 100 online dates or have resigned yourself to the fact that you'll most likely die alone or worse, are considering allowing your mum to play matchmaker (because Tom from next door seems like husband material), in 2016, finding that perfect match is an art form.If you're tired of swiping right and ending up with another creep, Tinder isn't the only dating app out there, there's a huge variety of apps to choose from.
Happn allows for conversation only when you've both liked each other and you match.
The expert: This sounds like every stalker's dream, I'm not sure I would be convinced of its safety features, but it is a good way to make contact with someone who you've been eyeing from afar.
Sometimes there are so many, scrolling through the mundane deluge of 'Hi, how is your day going,' can seem like a complete chore.
Once solves that problem by providing you with one match per day.
If it's good enough for Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lily Allen, Matthew Perry and Hilary Duff, well, it's good enough for you.
The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
If you're the shy type, this app is the perfect buffer, if not, ditch the app and start conversation in the real world.
Because the app is proximity-based, it also make things easier when it comes to setting up the date.
But of course, not all dating apps are created equal; which is why we've turned to dating coach and relationship expert David Kavanagh as well as our in-house serial dater to give us their verdict on the apps that deserve to take up space on your home screen.
And if you've still feel hesitant about swiping right, more celebrities than you think have used their phones in pursuit of love.
