44 Innovative Dating Apps

From Ex-Lover Deletion Apps to Engagement Ring Apps

— September 26, 2013 — Tech
As the ninth season of 'How I Met Your Mother' premiered last night and the mother finally made an appearance, one wonders how much quicker things might have moved if Ted Mosby had used dating apps. Even though one episode showed him using a matchmaking service, it still look eight plus years for him to meet his future wife. This collection of matchmaking dating apps and websites helps make dating a less confusing process.

Whether you're getting over someone or picking out an engagement ring, technology is there to help you every step of the way. Many of these sites and apps focus on helping people meet each other, and bring together groups based on things like food, music, gaming, product reviews, careers, activity interests and sexual orientation. Others focus on what happens in the relationship, such as detecting affection and preventing cheating. On the other hand, programs exist to help you break up with the person you're dating too.
