Download one of these romance-finding apps and you’ll be on your way to love bliss in no time!

1. Tinder

The king of quick-fixes, Tinder presents users with a simple choice – hot or not? Swipe left if you’re not interested, swipe right if you are, and if the other person finds you attractive too you’ll get a match and be able to start chatting. Based on location, this app can help you find interested people in your area with a simple swipe of the finger.

2. HowAboutWe

Forget chatting for weeks online – this app asks users to post a date idea (i.e. “How about we check out the new art exhibition at GOMA”) and connect through action, not thoughts.

3. PlentyOfFish

The world’s largest dating site is now in pocket form. Browse through over 55 million worldwide users – your true love must be in there somewhere…

4. Down

Ever wondered whether that cute friend of yours was interested in just more than hanging out? Down allows you to anonymously select from your Facebook friends those you’d like to take things further with and only lets them know if they in turn select you. You can even pick from friends-of-friends if your list is a little limited…

5. Tingle

Made for users on-the-go, Tingle searches out other users in your general vicinity, say the bar or club you’re at with friends, and allows you to connect and message to meet up in the moment. No need to exchange phone numbers or log on and sift through dating site emails – too simple.


Looking for something a bit more serious? RSVP has got you covered. The largest dating site in Australia, RSVP’s new app allows you to check your messages on the go and send ‘kisses’ from anywhere.

7. Grindr

With more than 7 million users worldwide, Grindr is the leader in mobile networking for men in the LGBTI community and prompted much of the current popularity of dating apps.

8. AreYouInterested

Quickly arrange a date, access singles chat rooms and find local users – this app does it all, even providing date ideas based on where you live and the mutual interests of your and your match. Too easy.

9. OkCupid

One of the most popular dating sites and apps, OkCupid boasts a clean set up, simple method of contact and plenty of active users.

 10. Zoosk

Another popular dating site, Zoosk partnered with Facebook to create an online singles community and uses Behavioural Matchmaking, which takes preferences and personality into account before matching you with a like-minded user.
