Around one in four relationships start online now, and among the millennial generation, the number is likely to be even higher.

Unfortunately there’s no way of searching by time or location so if you don’t go on the app straight away you may never be able to find that cute girl from Pret – in a big city you cross paths with so many people every day, so Happn can be a bit overwhelming. Match: Free app but membership costs £29.99 for one month Match feels like a step-up from the more casual dating apps in that the sign-up process takes a while and membership isn’t free – £29.99 for one month seems expensive, but the price per month decreases significantly if you sign up for longer (if you sign up for six months, it equates to £12.99 a month).

Perhaps because they’re paying, people on the app definitely treat it more seriously.

There’s a twist though: after you match, you only have 24 hours to start the conversation, otherwise he’ll disappear forever.

Similarly, your match only has 24 hours to reply – if he does though, the time limit disappears for future messages.

The unique thing about Huggle is that you pick (initially five of) your favourite places – be they shops, restaurants or parks – and then find people who go there too.

It’s all about location, but you can’t add more places to your list until you’ve visited them.

It’s easy to use, people actually have conversations and considering so many of us are on it, the chances of finding someone you like are actually pretty high.

Tinder is one of the most well-known dating apps around.

Despite this, every day at noon, our phone pings with a message saying “Wow! Despite supposedly learning our tastes, we didn’t find our matches particularly great and because you get so few a day, it can be a rather long journey to finding someone you actually want to talk to, let alone go out with. Hinge: Free Hinge has a slick design and is meant to be for people who are over games and being treated like a “playing card”.

You’re asked to put in lots of details (including your height, which is rare) in order to create your “story” – for example, what you’re watching, what you spend most of your money on or how you’d describe yourself in three emoji.

As one of the most popular apps, your pool is likely to be huge and people do actually have conversations on Tinder – in our experience, it’s the app that leads to the most actual dates too.
