Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
It could make future beers with your mates a little awkward.
Cons: If the date goes horribly, there are no assurances you won't bump into her when you're buying milk a few days later. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn't be an issue – your friends are bound to find out.
Also, spend too much time on it and you start getting paranoid you're seeing 'someone you liked on Happn' every time you sit in your local cafe. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Pros: It means women have an extra barrier against the 'hey hun wanna fuk?? It also means if she's got in touch with you, you definitely weren't an 'accidental swipe', meaning you'll be leaving less of those unanswered hellos that slowly chip away at your soul.

Verdict: Great for people that need help with organising a great especially with the interactive Date Map which lets you track who is else is wants to meet for a pint or deep and meaningful conversation at 1am.
The USP: If you're dog-obsessed here is where you can rest assured you're in good company.
Whether it's matching you on your favourite interests or finding someone who you share mutual friends with.
