Too much choice can also be confusing for people, they get disinterested because there are so many other options - this is the perfect app if you want to slow things down.
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.
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.
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.
Because the app is proximity-based, it also make things easier when it comes to setting up the date.
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.
Download the app, create a profile, upload some fabulous pictures, write an equally impressive bio and voila.
But of course, not all dating apps are created equal; which is why we've turned to dating coach and relationship expert David Kavanagh as well as our in-house serial dater to give us their verdict on the apps that deserve to take up space on your home screen.
If not, there's always tomorrow's suitor to look forward to.
