So next time you're on the subway and are too scared to actually approach a Ryan Gosling lookalike, download Happn and pray to the Sex Gods that he has the app, too.
If I'm feeling particularly salty about the IRL pool of suitors, I'm comforted by the fact that I could swipe through Tinder until my fingers bleed and still not run out of potential friends/lovers/boyfs.
(If you live in a less populated city, this may not hold true, but it still beats hanging out at the same dive bar hoping a sexy stranger will sweep you off your feet, right?
Hinge provides only a "select list" of matches rather than an endless amount, so the number of potential baes is more of a gentle stream than a roaring waterfall.
Once you've run out of second- and third-degree connections, the app makes more "tangential" connections, still trying to find you people based on your social networks.
CMB functions a little differently than Tinder: You get only one match — called a "bagel" — a day, every day at noon (it sends you a push notification to let you know when it's ready).
Then you can either "accept" or "pass" on this person; if you both accept, then a chat line opens up and stays active for a week.
This app made by women, for women aims to give ladies control over their virtual dating lives.
It's basically feminist Tinder: Men are not allowed to message first, leaving it up to the girls to start off the conversation however they see fit.
It hooks you up with friends of friends, so the people you're chatting with can be vouched for by people you trust.
Like Tinder, your profile is built around your Facebook photos and interests, and then you can chat with someone once you've both "liked" each other, but the similarities end there.
Plus it's never a bad thing to remind women that they're in control of their own bodies, despite what many gross trolls would have them believe.
