No matter what type of relationship you're looking for — from the forever kind to the friends-with-benefits kind — there's an app for that!I've been hearing my girlfriends discuss their wins and losses with a variety of online-dating phone apps, so I'm breaking down the newest means of tech-based courtship.When it comes to the apps on our phones, we tend to become loyal to a select few.You find something you like—maybe you’re a Facebook fan, or a loyal Instagrammer, or a member of the cool Snapchat club—and you stick to it. Ever wonder if you’ve met your soulmate, but didn’t know it?
The classic dating site, OK Cupid’s app puts more thought into your matches than much of the gimmick-based competition, with more attention paid to the profile. Your pet is the ultimate wingman, and this way you can be the same for them.This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.It requires a little more investment on your part, but you will learn more about your matches with this app than most others. It’s formatted like Tinder (but with more profile), it tells you if you’ve crossed paths like happn and you can use it for friends or dating like Bumble. If you want a quick way to find people who roll with the same crowd as you and don’t want to ask your friend about that cute coworker, Hinge could be the answer. The ironically named Pure is even more effective than Tinder for making casual, ahem, connections. Their 20-questions quiz goes beyond the basic info that a lot of other dating apps ask for.It also has over 300 million users between its website and its app, which means a large dating pool, but also more scammers and fake accounts. Hinge matches you up with friends of friends based on your Facebook contacts. Users post an invitation to hang out and then choose from respondents whom they want to meet. Specify whether you’re using it for friends, a hook up or dating to make sure you find someone looking for the same.
