To help you pick one that's best for you, read on for 9 of the best dating sites and apps to get you started. We've already mentioned – it was the first and is now the most popular online dating site in the world.
It comes with a free-to-download app for your i Phone or i Pad in addition to the browser-based website, and costs £12.99 per month.
To qualify, an app had to have more than 2,000 reviews across the App Store and the Google Play store.
Applause found that, in general, the most popular US dating apps trailed other apps in quality by 23 points (out of 100).
You can also find matches based on your interests, qualities and even imperfections. Another popular online dating service is e Harmony, which also has a free-to-download app.
You'll start by taking a relationship questionnaire that helps the matching system get to know you (and is supposedly designed to help you get to know yourself, too, which should help you create a better profile).
Tinder matches couples based on their physical attraction to one another, so there are none of those aforementioned relationship questionnaires and there's no deep understanding of your personality.
Instead, you'll see other Tinder users who fall within a specified age range and gender, and are within a certain distance of your location.
It costs £9.95 per month so is slightly less expensive than Match.com, and is ideal for anyone looking for a committed relationship that lasts.
See Tinder in the i OS App Store | See Tinder in the Google Play Store Tinder is a much newer app more notoriously known for hook ups, so is pretty much the opposite of e Harmony, but there are some romantic success stories that stemmed from it too.
It still has the swipe to like system but only female users can initiate conversations. Love Struck is a bit more pricey than the other options here, starting at £16 per month, but it's designed for city-based professionals that struggle to find time for dating.
