But the app has fallen in popularity compared to Tinder, and the fact that you can receive messages from anyone - without matching first - means that your inbox can quickly become clogged with sleaze. It matches you with people based on your location and a shared interest in music.
It can import your favourite tunes from your smartphone or and does the hard work for you by collating matches.
Even if you used to successfully online date, but have found yourself single again, it can be difficult to know exactly what sites you need to be surfing.
It’s why I’ve created this handy guide to the 11 best dating websites and apps available right now. • The 20 most useful dating websites This site describes itself as the way to meet ‘the most successful and attractive singles.’ It asks users to fill out their job title and education, and links to Facebook so you can view their social circle.
Cost: Free Radhika Sanghani's latest novel, Not That Easy (Harlequin), is available to buy in paperback or as an e Book on Amazon and Telegraph Bookshop The Big Short, the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the causes of the financial crisis, opens in UK cinemas this weekend.
The website says it “takes the awkward out of dating”, but the drawback might be that it’s only London-focused - and handling raw fish with someone you don't fancy could be a lot worse than just having a drink with them.
Cost: £10 per month This sells itself as a ‘feminist’ app.
Instead it only lets you match with people who share your mutual friends - and it shows you a new ‘batch’ of users every day.
It also lets users have a more detailed profile than Tinder – which just offers a bio – and lets you add activities, preferred dating spots and so on. This UK website has more than 130,000 members and as one Twitter user tells me, it’s ‘perfect for meeting posh boys.’ This app has been popular over the last few years, as it shows people you have crossed paths with geographically.
Before you join, the app has to approve you as a member (a slightly daunting process) or you have to be invited.
