Each day you get a "bagel", someone CMB believes would be great for you to date.

You have 24 hours to say yes or no, and if both of you say yes, you’re able to chat with each other.

No more having to go out to bars to find a one night stand - there’s an app for that. When you first download the app, rather than requiring your Facebook or email address to create an account, you just sign up; Pure doesn’t give a rip who you are, just like the person who you’ll be hooking up with later.

There’s Skout, which brands itself as more of a friend app but has morphed into more of a dating landscape.

Peoplehunt exists, too, although it is now mainly a tool for finding others who might be able to help you with something (language exchange classes are popular on the format).

Tinder doesn’t take much to find you a match, as all you need to do is create a rather simple profile and it does the rest of the work for you- now you just need to swipe left or right. Tinder has a TON of users, and there’s bound to be plenty of stinkers out there, and you will have to swipe quite a lot to find a match.

If they like you back, you’re able to chat with them and set up a date or time to shag, whichever you choose.

The most popular friend app around at the moment is Meetup, by a stretch.

However, the app was founded as a website; its mobile platform isn't the smoothest, lacking the responsive, quick-fire style of its new competitor.If you’re not interested, that’s okay - tomorrow you’ll get another bagel, curated just for you!If you want a long term relationship, use CMB because it recommends people to date based on people you’re friends with and actually enjoy being around - what more could you want in a serious relationship?CMB might not be as refined as other dating apps, but rather than select random people from a pool based on characteristics they have, CMB takes friends of your friends, and recommends people to date out of that pool based on what you want in a partner.The catch with CMB is that you only get one bagel per day, so you’ll need to come back to the app each day if you don’t get a great recommendation right away.• The Tinderisation of modern life is on the rise I arranged a coffee meet-up for Saturday at 5.30pm, which after half an hour a guy called Harpal said he was coming to.
