It’s based in the UK so most of the user base will be here, and it means you don’t have to worry so much about awkward silences or safety.
but there aren’t a lot of people on it.” Cost: Free I can’t really make a list of the best dating sites without mentioning Tinder. Tinder once had a reputation for being a ‘shagging app’ - but that's changed.
At first people were drawn to the app for its simplicity - users can swipe left to decline and right to approve a date. Now, it seems you can’t go anywhere without meeting couples who got together though it.

This UK website has more than 130,000 members and as one Twitter user tells me, it’s ‘perfect for meeting posh boys.’ This app has been popular over the last few years, as it shows people you have crossed paths with geographically.

It matches you with people based on your location and a shared interest in music.The app’s best quality is undoubtedly its sheer amount of users – there are 50 million active ones, so it’s unlikely you’ll run out of potential matches.Cost: Free For people who hate the forced feel of a first online date, Doing Something might be the answer.Cost: £10 per month This sells itself as a ‘feminist’ app.
