If you haven't had any luck on Tinder, Hinge app might be more your style. This is especially the case because the dating app markets itself as the 'anti-Tinder.'

One of the downfalls of the swipe-featuring mobile app is it lists matches based on geographic area and age only, so you could get matched with a lot of sketchy people. Hinge is different because it will only connect you with Facebook friends of friends or third degree matches. While Tinder might show you mutual friends or liked pages, it does not prevent randos from contacting you. Hinge app prides itself on its trusted profiles and personalized intros. This way, if you meet a complete weirdo, it is the fault of your friends and not the mobile app.
