Dating may be tricky but most mobile apps operate the same way.Download the app, create a profile, upload some fabulous pictures, write an equally impressive bio and voila.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.As soon as I signed up we matched and we're about to go on a first date.Happn allows for conversation only when you've both liked each other and you match.
The firm does all the work, making reservations, clearing the matches with customers.
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.
A dating app that reduces the chance of harassment? The expert: I really like the idea of this app because it creates a safe environment for women online.
It's also the perfect opportunity for women to take control. I find that women are more cautious when it comes to initiating contact but this could be the perfect way to eradicate the 'damsel in distress' attitude, where women are seen as 'needing a man' to take the lead.
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.
