The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
While you're usually all about female empowerment, you're not wearing the right shoes to chase him down the street to exchange numbers, or you know, tell him he's The One?
Dejected, you can't help but think Mr Right is now untraceable - there goes your happy ever after.
Once solves that problem by providing you with one match per day.
Dating may be tricky but most mobile apps operate the same way.
Because the app is proximity-based, it also make things easier when it comes to setting up the date.
The serial dater: I loved the idea of this app, every morning on my way to work I crossed paths with the same guy, but I was never brave enough to ask him out.
The serial dater: I would never chat a guy up or ask for someone's number, I couldn't deal with the rejection, so this was way out of my comfort zone, but I did love the fact that I had all the power.
I've often had men abuse me on Tinder for not responding quickly enough to a message or turning them down for a date, but on Bumble, it's a completely different vibe - the men on here are of a whole different calibre.
