Sex dating meet up
This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.
If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide open. If dating apps have an 'atmosphere', then How About We is a pleasant summer garden party where people enjoy polite conversation and no one makes an inappropriate lunge on anyone else until at least 1 am.
The USP: Endless personality quiz questions that give you a match percentage with would-be partners. The USP: It's a huge ocean, with more members than any of the others (around 70 million).
Cons: Just because you both like Kings of Leon doesn't really mean you're made for each other...
Verdict: A well-intended app that tries to convey your personality rather than just transferring your Instagram feed but the pressure to think up facts can be overwhelming.
Whether they are honest about it or not, every heterosexual internet dating app out there aspires to be the 'Grindr for straight people'. Pros: The screening process ensures out-and-out perverts are banished, which means everyone wins (except the perverts).
The fun and well organised events means membership feels a bit more like a club, and less like pin-balling around a vast galaxy of random singletons.
Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
