The stigma that was once attached to online dating has well and truly disappeared – in fact, you’re more likely to raise eyebrows if you’re single and not on any dating apps.

The unique thing about Huggle is that you pick (initially five of) your favourite places – be they shops, restaurants or parks – and then find people who go there too.

It’s all about location, but you can’t add more places to your list until you’ve visited them.

When signing up, you have to verify your profile in one of various ways, for example by sending a selfie mimicking a certain pose, which hopefully limits scammers too.

As one of the most popular apps, your pool is likely to be huge and people do actually have conversations on Tinder – in our experience, it’s the app that leads to the most actual dates too.

However there are also plenty of people using Tinder just for hook-ups.The app is easy to use but we personally found the number of messages, winks, views and favourites we received overwhelming. Once: Free The idea behind Once is to move away from today’s dating app culture and back towards traditional match-making – after a computer does the initial whittling down, real human match-makers pick a personalised match for each user every day.It’s meant to save time and free singles from hours of swiping (although to be fair that it half the fun for many of us), hence the name Once. Extra dedicated users can spend money and even exchange messages with a match-maker too.However, if your potential suitors have previously checked-in on Facebook to the same places as you, that will appear on their profiles.With Huggle, there’s just as much focus on finding friends as dates, but whether anyone actually uses it for friendship, we’re not sure.If you wear glasses or are into people who do, try Spex, for example. But whether you’re after a meaningful relationship or just some casual dates, there’s an almost overwhelming number of dating apps from which to choose nowadays.
