To confront that, the Casual X team manually reviews each new profile to ensure there's a real person aiming to use the app properly.
The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.Pros: Once you get over the slight stalker complex Happn instils on you by showing women who walked past your front door an hour ago, matching with users within a 250 meter radius is actually quite handy.And you can see them when you look at anyone's profile.Of course, as is to be expected with apps like this, scammers and fake profiles are a constant issue.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.
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?
Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do differently and what sets them apart.
The USP: Their mantra and methodology is explained thus: 'Each day at noon, guys will receive up to 21 quality matches – known as “Bagels”. Then, Coffee Meets Bagel will curate the best potential matches for women among the men who expressed interest.'Pros: A more curated selection than just endlessly swiping through everyone.
Chances are you live or work in the same area, so arranging a date becomes a lot simpler.
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.
As a result there is now no end of apps with the same aim of helping you fall in love and live happily ever after, or at the least find someone to hang out with next weekend.
