80 Niche Dating Apps

From Selfie-Based Dating Apps to Gender-Neutral Dating Apps

— January 18, 2016 — Lifestyle
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, it will come as no surprise if a surge in niche dating apps occurs. After all, as much as this day of love is cliche and superficial, people are often loathed to spend it alone. With the prevalence of such mobile help, there is more hope that that will not have to happen.

What makes these niche dating apps particularly intriguing is the fact that they hone in on crucial make-or-break criteria such as religion, personalities and more. This helps to narrow down the playing field significantly, which, hopefully, makes it easier to make that special connection. On the flip side, however, these niche dating apps also capitalize on the market in general.
