Let’s face it, navigating online dating is a whole 'nother ballgame these days, and there are a bunch of different options and boastings on offer from the best dating apps.
An endless roster of actively seeking singles (even ones with really niche preferences) are now accessible on your commute, and profiles are swamped with Uber ratings, food preferences and requests that we follow these complete strangers on Instagram (like we weren't going to stalk you anyway). With all this to consider, how are you expected to find time to pick the best dating apps to bless with your presence? How do you know what apps have the 'best' single people lurking on them?
You’re in luck, we’ve tried and tested the best free dating app options on the market and we’re here to help you find your perfect match (the app, that is. No guarantees on the new bae, sorry).
