If you're single, you might be searching for a partner who wants to stroll through a park or spend a lazy weekend with you rewatching ?

Hinge focuses on common connections that you and a potential partner share on Facebook.

It's basically the first stop for those entering the dating world.

If you want to play the odds when it comes to online dating, you need to be swiping where everyone's swiping.

Profiles are much more in-depth than most dating sites, and if you answer a seemingly endless series of questions, they will spit out a reasonable Match/Enemy percentage ratio on profiles to help you gauge compatibility.

Changes in the last year have made Ok Cupid a bit more like Tinder, focusing more on swiping and eliminating the ability to message a user without matching with them first.

However, I found the app confusing to use, with too many features and too many gimmicks.

I shouldn't have to look up online tutorials to figure out how to use a dating app. I was also disappointed in the notifications, which I found too pushy.

(Hinge may have come to understand that, since you no longer need Facebook to sign up.) The app also asks questions to help you match with better connections, which can be a plus for serious relationship seekers.

Coffee Meets Bagel hopes to offer users better-quality matches by sending curated matches, or "bagels," each day at noon.
