New adult dating pay sites
The USP: Connect with verified millionaires Pros: The site boasts a large portfolio of high earners and offers 24/7 customer service for their members. Luxy does however offer high security to protect your privacy and weeds out people looking for a sugar daddy or mumma.
The USP: Fall in love with someone who shares your music taste Pros: A nice way to connect with people on something you're passionate about or it can be used to find friends to visit gigs with.
Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
Cons: Just because you both like Kings of Leon doesn't really mean you're made for each other...
Verdict: A nice concept and considering music is a personal passion that connect a lot of people, Tastebuds actually has more of a USP than most niche interest apps.
Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.
Pros: You can weed out people with traits or points of view you find simply unacceptable. Cons: Too many basic functions are restricted to paid membership. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.
Verdict: Worth a shot, if only to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Cons: A high number of sexually frustrated virgin-trolls means a lot of women find using it a harrowing experience, which understandably makes them cagey when you come along.
Pros: Once you get over the slight stalker complex Happn instils on you by showing women who walked past your front door an hour ago, matching with users within a 250 meter radius is actually quite handy.
Chances are you live or work in the same area, so arranging a date becomes a lot simpler.
The USP: Like Tinder, except once you match, only the ladies can make the first move and say hello.
