They may not be super popular yet, but apps like these could easily end up being the future of online dating.
How About We How About We cuts right to the first date, whatever your ideal first date may be.
Users fill out a suggestion for a date that they would like to go on, and are then able to browse other date ideas from people nearby.
Since its 2012 launch, Tinder has quickly become one of the most popular forms of online dating.
Its simplicity has been part of what makes it so attractive to its users - using geolocation, the app shows users profiles of their preferred gender and age-range within a set geographical area.
Profiles consist only of a first name, an age, a 500-character description, and up to six photos.
If the user likes a profile they "swipe right" and if they don't, they "swipe left".
The app only allows users to exchange messages if two users match by both swiping right on each other.
This formula has been incredibly successful - with over 50 million users, Tinder has become a serious contender in the online dating world.
