When was the last time you struck up a conversation with a complete stranger at a bar, snared a boyfriend through a blind date or had a fling with some guy you met at a random concert? Everyone knows that the dating scene is online - unless you're willing to televise your quest for love and sign up for the second series of First Dates, in which case, bravo.
Whether you've been on 100 online dates or have resigned yourself to the fact that you'll most likely die alone or worse, are considering allowing your mum to play matchmaker (because Tom from next door seems like husband material), in 2016, finding that perfect match is an art form.
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.
It will definitely encourage me to make the first move more often and it is empowering to be in the driving seat for a change.
The low-down: Have you ever seen Mr Dreamy on the bus only for him to get off three stops before you, vanishing forever?
Enter Happn, the app which finds the people you've crossed paths with throughout the day.
Half creepy and half ingenious, the app uses GPS tracking to present you with a list of people you've come into contact with.
As soon as I signed up we matched and we're about to go on a first date.
The only downside is that my ex-boyfriend lives nearby so it's like he's literally always on my radar.
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.
If you're tired of swiping right and ending up with another creep, Tinder isn't the only dating app out there, there's a huge variety of apps to choose from.
