Einer der größten Fauxpas ist das intime Bild unbedacht an den falschen Adressaten zu schicken. Anstatt im Chat-Fenster des Freundes oder der Freundin landet das pikante Foto bei einem entfernten Bekannten oder in einer Gruppe. Schlimmer hätte es nicht kommen können. Selbst die Mama oder ein enger Freund hätten das Foto peinlich berührt wieder gelöscht. Ist es jedoch zu spät und das Bild gelangte einmal ungewollt vor fremde Augen, besteht die Gefahr, dass es einen viralen Charakter entwickelt und schnell die Runde in verschiedenen sozialen Netzwerken macht.

Who it's good for: Hinge is the place for people who want a real relationship but don't want to commit to a full-fledged dating site with extensive questionnaires. Hinge literally labels itself the relationship app, or as I prefer, the "anti Tinder." Instead of seeing one profile at a time, Hinge is set up like Instagram, which creates a way smoother (and less judge-y) feel than swiping. 
The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account, but you do have to be older than 18. Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo). You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and/or school. Discovery settings allow other users to find you if desired and set a few preferences regarding who you see. Then the real fun begins.
The gist: Grindr is the world's biggest social networking app for gay, bi, trans, and queer people, helping singles get it on since 2009. Because there aren't a ton of women on it, it's usually known as the app for gay men — and at 3.6 million daily users, you could say it's hella popular. Though it's kind of pegged as a hookup app, finding a lasting relationship on here isn't impossible by any means. Just keep in mind that many users you'll come across aren't looking for anything serious.

The bottom line: With the combination of the modern aesthetics and the ability to bond over hating the same thing, I really don't see it taking long for cynical millennials to become obsessed with this. It's still up and coming with a small user base compared to the Tinders and OkCupids of the world, so I wouldn't depend on hater to find me the love of my life just yet. But the premise is too good to pass up, and if you download it now, you'll be able to say "I was on that five months ago," when everyone else finds out about it.

Bumble also checks the boxes for usability, a slick user interface, and easy setup. In addition, the relatively ballsy move of designing a dating app specifically with women in mind pays off. It’s the only app that clearly states plainly and prominently that it prohibits pornographic material, requires its users to respect one another, and has a code of conduct in place specifically to make it a safe and friendly place. We only found one other dating app that had a code of conduct — and it was hidden within the Terms of Use, which no one reads. The 24-hour time limit to connect with someone adds just enough pressure to say “hello,” so matches don’t languish and get reshuffled into the deck. And if you accidentally nixed someone? Just shake your phone to undo your rogue swipe.
The downsides: Hinge only gives you seven matches per day, which is a slight bummer. There's a wide range of people on this app, and having a day where all seven don't interest you is a definite possibility. If you want unlimited matches, you'll have to pay $7/month. But Hinge isn't meant for constant swiping — and everyone I know who uses Hinge (including myself) hasn't ever felt the need to upgrade past the free version. Having endless potential matches is overwhelming, and if you're trying to find someone you genuinely connect with, there's no  point to viciously rushing through every person in a 50 mile radius.

If you want to join Raya, be prepared to do a little legwork. After downloading the app, you need to complete an application and have a referral from a current member. Your application is then assessed by certain algorithmic values before being evaluated by an anonymous committee. The entire process can take anywhere from several weeks from several months, and once you’re approved there’s also a monthly membership fee of $8.
Nobody could have imagined a decade back that most of our manual works would be replaced by our Smart devices known as Smartphones. In today’s time, one can basically do everything on a Smartphone only. From shopping to dating, everything is available on your handheld device. The best part is that all such apps are pretty easy to set up, learn and use. Take the example of social apps only like Tinder.  Such social media applications can easily be installed and learned within a few days of normal usage. You will never know when you would have to become an expert in handling the Tinder app.
We started the evening ordering cocktails and catching up, before getting into the swing (and swipe!) of things. I needed to set up my Bumble profile and gave Chow my phone to write a brief bio for me, which came to him naturally thanks to his public relations background. I started swiping and was immediately transfixed. It was almost as if no one else was in the room with me and my intuition took over as I swiped through a seemingly endless supply of other women also looking for someone to befriend. When I finally looked up, I noticed all my friends were zoned out too. This was not the evening's intended goal.
Happn uses the GPS functionality on your phone to track your movements. If you’ve been within 800 feet of a potential match, then you’ll see their profile. For that reason, it works best for city dwellers. People can’t contact you unless you tap the Heart on their profile. Happn never displays your position to other users in real time, and you can also block users if you have stalking concerns.
Hinge lets you customise your profile to add three key bits of personal information - claiming this will help you find something more real. You can certainly tell more about your potential partners from their profiles, but the catch? It comes with the pressure of coming across as witty, fun and effortlessly debonair. Plus the answers might get a little old - we get it, people hate slow walkers.

She’s just one of many dating app users who’ve grown dissatisfied with the mechanical exercise of swiping for love – an act that now feels as dispassionate as scrolling through Netflix. For these disillusioned daters, it feels as though the golden age of online dating has ended – even though the sector appears to be booming. The US$3-billion American dating industry has seen a 140-per-cent increase in revenue since 2009, according to IBISWorld. The market research firm counts approximately 55 million mobile dating app users in North America alone, and estimates that number will grow by 25 per cent next year.

If you're strictly looking for a hookup app, it's always best to prioritize your privacy, and Pure does just that. The free app, designed to facilitate casual flings, erases your profile every hour (although you can easily restore it if your heart desires). The app is basically a geo-location-based online personals app that allows you to list yourself to other local singles for 60-minute periods to see who you match up with. If you mutually match, you can strike up a quick chat with the matching user, but be sure to exchange contact information quickly, as you'll lose contact on the app with that user. After one hour, your profile “self-destructs,” erasing your short online personal listing so nothing traces back to you.
