Coffee Meets Bagel sends one potential friend-of-a-friend match to your inbox every day at noon.
The “bagel” is based on specific profile information and preferences, such as religion, height and personal details.
Users can also search by shared friends or interests, then connect via a live instant messenger chat.
Creating a profile, browsing singles and finding matches is free, but you’ll need to pony up a membership fee of about per month to enjoy all the benefits, like emailing members.
Those who don’t actually want to date, but want their friends and family to get off their back, can pay their way to a faux girlfriend.
Grouper sets you up with a match, then lets both parties bring along two friends.
Down can be used for dating as well, but let’s be honest: This app still lives up to its former name. Trint Me allows shy users to initiate the next step behind the veil of their smartphones.
It also lets users hook up and Netflix accounts, which is a unique way for singles to display personality and tastes.
This all-male dating app matches guys with nearby singles, similar to Tinder, with only a photo and a brief profile.
Those who mutually rate each other at a four or higher will get introduced via email.
“Black Status” users are sent 100 matches per day, which means they have a large number of Facebook friends who also use Hinge.
Grindr calculates exactly how many feet away your next potential match is. Those interested in putting passion first can find a match based on sexual chemistry, with ihookup.
The ultimate goal – if you’re both interested – is to end up zero feet away. Don’t expect to find a long-term relationship here, though – shocking, I know.
But I needed to be very discreet, because my family life makes me happy and I didn’t want to change anything to it.
