As Tinder is the original casual dating app, you should definitively try it out

6. Happn

Happn connects you with the people you crossed paths with and seize the opportunity. If you always wished there was a way to start talking with that really cute guy/gal you see every day on the bus, or at the gym, but don’t want to invade their space then you should try Happn. Happn has set itself apart with one of the unique dating services and overall concept.

If you like a member you cross paths with, you can heart their profile. They won’t know you’ve hearted it unless they heart you too. That means there won’t be that awkward moment. It has 50M members (about 6.5M monthly active user base).

You may come across 100s people on one single train journey in a city with millions as it will match you with people in your immediate proximity, not necessarily people you saw face to face as it can’t determine that.

It makes it a bit hard to go through all potential matches you come across in a bigger city to decide whom to heart. You also have to turn the dating apps like Happn on and off so they don’t track you at all hours. Unless, of course, you want to be tracked at all hours.

7. OkCupid

OkCupid is a popular dating app that continues to adapt to the online dating culture. Over the years, it has become very friendly for the short-term dating scene and LGBTQ community – all thanks to their extensive matchmaking questionnaire.
