Ok Cupid, Match and Zoosk are standard fare for traditional dating websites.
You can write lengthy paragraphs about your interests, hopes, dreams, fantasy football team or whatever and upload multiple photos.
It requires you to sign in with Facebook and Linked In (to avoid setting you up with friends or co-workers) and you can set super-specific criteria.
Because of the vetting process, you'll find very few catfishers or fake profiles here, not something that's guaranteed on other apps.
Bumble seeks to decrease the amount of unwanted messages women receive on dating apps by exclusively giving them the chance to message a match first.
Aside from permanently leaving the ball in the lady's court, Bumble is pretty similar to Tinder, with an simple right-swipe-based design.
Being a woman on the internet almost guarantees that you'll be harassed.
OKCupid also makes it possible for users to make their profiles invisible to straight people, as well as hide straight profiles from their matches.
Here's a short list of the most popular dating apps you can download.
While some are just apps, a few also have desktop sites you can log into on your computer -- and there's no shame in using more than one service at a time.
Religion and faith are driving forces for many people, resulting in the desire to date someone who shares those beliefs, too.
Some of the most popular religion-centered apps are CDate (i OS) for Christians, JSwipe (i OS and Android) for those of Jewish faith and Minder (i OS) for Muslims.
