Bumble is by far my favorite dating app. It's one of the only apps out there that feels fun while still maintaining a sense of safety, composure, and gravitas. The fact that it was created by women fed up by the existing dating app offerings is evident— and they ended up making the better app because of it. Also, I think it's worth mentioning that their bran… See more

The matches were more genuine, the conversations way better, and the twists (compared to other apps) encourage you to actually go out and meet people in real life. Also, it works... I got engaged to an incredible girl in September and that is all thanks to Bumble!

There's a new feature on Tinder that's either creepy or the perfect innovation depending on how you view it. 'Places' will allow users to track down matches who have visited a particular location. That means if you're keen on women (or men) who go to your local coffee shop you'll be able to make your selection based on this.

In modern dating apps, it's normal to feel like you're just another face in a sea of photos. Even if you get a match, it can be difficult to reach a date, let alone a meaningful relationship. Wouldn't it be easier if you could just cut out the competition?

HuffPost UK
A new breed of dating apps wants us to slow right down and stop judging based on appearances.
