Top 10 Tips for Picking a First Date Venue That Isn't a Shambles Just landed in the UK, Hinge bills itself as a "classier Tinder" and helps you connect with friends of friends (we think Tinder's plenty classy, but hey).

It's a sound approach, especially for online dating newbies: meeting someone is less intimidating and feels more organic this way, but you can still get to know people you otherwise might not have met.

Well fellas (and ladies), if you’re looking for a quick fix, there’s now an app for that. It’s called ‘Pure’ and it’s more focused on hookups than Tinder could hope to be. After all, you are still soliciting sex from strangers via the Internet.

At that point, you’ll have to buy additional tickets to continue your adventures.

When (or if) someone does see your listing, the will have a simple “Yes” or “No” option to show interest. Saying yes will make the user aware of your interest in them.

The easy “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” function gives girls a much easier way to find a partner without being exposed to everyone.

And for guys using Pure, you’ll never feel out of bounds sharing your desires. If Pure gets one thing right, it’s the privacy factor.

How I Used Tinder to Travel the World Another annoying thing about Tinder is that actually arranging a date can take ages.

Between matching with someone, completing the obligatory ''is this person a stalker?be a bunch of people on it (mostly guys) who just want to hook up.Usually, they’re so desperate for a quick bang that they don’t even hide their hope to score.It takes the small talk out of the matching equation and gets you straight to the 'yay' or 'nay' of fixing a date.Streamlining things to this extent won't be to everyone's taste, of course, so if you're shy or just getting used to the idea of online dating, there's probably better options out there.Your presence on the service is minimal at all times.
