Parading the hottest – and least obtainable – women in front of your face every time you log in feels a little bit manipulating / cynical.Verdict: A dating app where women need not fear to tread, where the sting of rejection is largely removed for you. Pros: Less shallow than just swiping from a picture.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.
Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.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.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).
