Cons: After sending someone a message, you're notified when they're checking your profile, which means you can actually see yourself being rejected in real time. Verdict: Pulling together the best elements of other older dating apps, Inner Circle is the best all-rounder out there with the highest quantity of people you'd actually like to meet.
£5 a week for the advanced user options is just too much, though.
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.
They've just launched a premium service for people with the hallowed blue tick on Twitter.
Verdict: This app allows you to eliminate the middleman.
If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide open.
The USP: Like Tinder, except once you match, only the ladies can make the first move and say hello.
Pros: It means women have an extra barrier against the 'hey hun wanna fuk?? It also means if she's got in touch with you, you definitely weren't an 'accidental swipe', meaning you'll be leaving less of those unanswered hellos that slowly chip away at your soul. Though one minor gripe is that Bumble's algorithm clearly pulls ten of the highest rated profiles to the top of your feed every time you log in.
