Dating can be a daunting task, but luckily there’s an app for that, or rather many apps. There are popular dating apps like Tinder, which has become the go-to app for millennials.

Then there’s Grindr that uses your geographic location to let you know if potential matches are nearby. And if you are uncomfortable with one-on-one dates, you can meet in groups and that’s where Grouper comes in. Then there’s Bumble, where only women can initiate a conversation. And if women really want to protect their privacy, they can use Siren, where you get to limit your visibility online. And if you are not sure if your date is a match, you can livestream your evening and get up-to-the minute advice from your friends.

We go through the best apps on the market and how you can use them to find your soulmate. Are you hooked on dating apps, or you feel they aren't working for you?
