It works in a similar way to Tinder, the only difference is that Bumble only allows women to start a conversation with their matches and they have just 24 hours to do so before the connection disappears. The idea is to stop women getting loads of sleazy messages – but I have it on good authority that some men are taking advantage of this and view the app as an opportunity for them to 'sit back and do nothing', while women ‘rush around trying to message the potential loves of their lives in 24 hours.’ Not exactly the epitome of equality… This is one of the biggest dating sites out there, and a lot of people I know have had relationship success here.The bonus is that users can fill in a lot of information about themselves, so you can tell who's after casual sex and who wants more.

At first people were drawn to the app for its simplicity - users can swipe left to decline and right to approve a date. Now, it seems you can’t go anywhere without meeting couples who got together though it.

The app’s best quality is undoubtedly its sheer amount of users – there are 50 million active ones, so it’s unlikely you’ll run out of potential matches.

Many wonderful success stories So many Russian singles just like you.

They are looking for friendship, learn different cultures, real love or relationship with foreigners.

The website says it “takes the awkward out of dating”, but the drawback might be that it’s only London-focused - and handling raw fish with someone you don't fancy could be a lot worse than just having a drink with them.

Cost: £10 per month This sells itself as a ‘feminist’ app.

Before you join, the app has to approve you as a member (a slightly daunting process) or you have to be invited.

If you want to unlock certain features you either have to pay or invite other to join.
