The USP: If you're dog-obsessed here is where you can rest assured you're in good company.Pick your future partner based on their dog preferences, small, scruffy or otherwise.Pros: Just think of all the cute dog meme sharing that could be yours.Cons: People might think basing your future parter on dog preferences is weird Verdict: A silly app that seems unlikely to find you true love but might narrow down options.Pros: You can weed out people with traits or points of view you find simply unacceptable. Cons: Too many basic functions are restricted to paid membership. The USP: It's a huge ocean, with more members than any of the others (around 70 million).Verdict: Worth a shot, if only to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.
And unlike Tinder, users tend to write a bit about themselves, meaning you have more to go on (and sell yourself with) than just your 5 least-worst selfies. Cons: It is notoriously 'glitchy', with messages disappearing and some functions not working properly."There are things, regardless of how you are, regardless of the stress you have on the court, there are things you just can't say," he said. "On top of that the problem is that he doesn't just behave badly towards himself he behaves badly toward the people around, the other players, the ball kids, the umpires."And regardless of whether he sidesteps it, I think the way he behaves on court he has big problems. I really hope the ATP will take major action against him this time." Vekic, 19, had kept her counsel on the incident, but spoke out for the first time today in an interview with the Canadian newspaper The Province.Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do differently and what sets them apart.The USP: Their mantra and methodology is explained thus: 'Each day at noon, guys will receive up to 21 quality matches – known as “Bagels”. Then, Coffee Meets Bagel will curate the best potential matches for women among the men who expressed interest.'Pros: A more curated selection than just endlessly swiping through everyone.Also, spend too much time on it and you start getting paranoid you're seeing 'someone you liked on Happn' every time you sit in your local cafe. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.Verdict: The more you think about it, the less sense Down makes.It could make future beers with your mates a little awkward.Verdict: This app allows you to eliminate the middleman.
