Coffee Meets Bagel, meanwhile, will present you with just one potential mate at noon every day.

Unlike the dating websites of yore, with endless profiles to browse and lengthy messages to compose, newer apps offer a sense of immediacy and simplicity that in many ways harkens back to the good old days of just walking up to a pretty stranger and making small talk.
Ellard says she wouldn’t have gone on a date in the past six months were it not for Hinge, a dating app whose promise hinges on its ability to hook you up with friends of friends. With a left swipe of her finger she dismisses Alex, 25 and Robert, 48. As with potential mates, there's an array to choose from.
It’s easier than ever to “meet” people thanks to our mobiles nowadays.
