The App: Klique The Pitch: "Meet New People, With Friends By Your Side."What we think: Like almost every other dating app out there, Klique lets you create a profile and swipe for nearby matches. After you start a chat with a match you can both invite friends to join the chat and make plans as a group.
While this is nice in theory, it feels like a waste of time and a bit odd.
But it's so much easier to pick up there, with the swiping already done. The App: Coffee Meets Bagel The Pitch: "Meet Your Everything Bagel Today"What we think: If you want to be on a dating app that has lots of users but you don't feel like swiping, Coffee Meets Bagel is the app for you.
Every day you're presented with one "bagel." Take a look at his or her interests and photos, and choose to pass or connect. Some days you may get more than one person, but never the infinite number that you'll find on other apps.
While there is no official handbook or rule guide, most dating apps operate more or less the same way.
You download the app, create a profile, add some of your favorite pictures, and write a short bio.
The App: Mingle The Pitch: "They say a picture is worth a thousand words and a video is at least a thousand pictures!
The one downside with First is the very thing that sets it apart: A lack of any communication before the date.
You can't get a sense of what the person is really like until you exchange words during your first meeting.
The App: Badoo The Pitch: “Meet New People, Chat, Socialize”What we think: If you want your celeb crush to become a reality, Badoo might be the app for you.
While you won't really end up with Chris Evans, Jake Gyllenhaal, or Chris Pratt, you could get pretty close.
However, beyond some gaming icons that people can use to express themselves there doesn't seem to be anything that makes this app specifically for "geeks", beyond the fact that it calls itself the "dating app for geeks."Nevertheless, it helps weed out ghosting by requiring users to respond to matches who message and want to meet you.
