The Best New Dating Apps You Probably Haven't Tried

Tired of Tinder but still in the market for women? Maybe you’re looking for something a little more serious? Fear not, it doesn’t seem like the dating app world is slowing down at all, so even if it’s not your favorite way of meeting people there are some different options to try for a different experience. Get that swipe finger ready, here’s our favorite new dating apps you haven’t tried yet.

At First Site
At First Site’s competitive advantage is that it uses video profiles which can give you a very different perspective on that prospective date. Surprisingly it’s only available on Android but Samsung owners can rejoice. If you’re the type of guy with an outgoing and gregarious personality (or you’re a hell of a salesman) this is the app for you.

Bumble was created by former Tinder executives so there are similarities, however it’s marketed to women in a different way since they get to control the interaction. Basically the swiping is all the same but only girls can begin the chatting, and if they neglect to move on a match within 24 hours the conversation option vanishes. Giving women more control in terms of matchmaking can be beneficial but it really depends on what type of relationship (or not) you’re looking for.

Happn is the closest you can get to stalking girls at the mall using your phone, but, you know, with less risk of arrest. The app basically tells you which other members you’ve crossed paths with, in case you didn’t get the guts to say hello in the first place. When you exchange mutual likes, then you can start chatting. Probably less chance for arrest than Craigslist too.

Taking a novel and specific approach, Tastebuds matches you up with people in your area based on your music taste. If you’re a vinyl snob or die hard club kid and you’re looking for date to check out all the coolest bands and djs in your town, say hello to your new go-to. That being said, it’s probably not your move if you’re trying to keep your Justin Beiber adoration under wraps.

Grouper Social Club
If you often wish you could bring your buddies along on your dates to break the ice (and share the shots)…now’s your chance. Grouper Social Club allows you to group date by choosing your two friends, and then setting you all up with eligible women. What happens next is up to you but a group setting is often a more relaxed, fun way to get to know some new women. Just promise us no punches will be thrown if someone suggests swapping matches.
