But, saying that, you know what they say about patience: it’s a virtue -- plus, good things apparently come to those who wait too, so maybe this is a good thing after all? There’s a huge variety of users, so everybody should be able to find somebody on it.

Chances are you've probably heard of Tinder, the mobile dating app that's become so huge it has changed the way traditional online dating sites approach their mobile presence.

Not only that, but it has had a bit of an impact on language and culture with terms like "swipe left" having a new meaning, and the emergence of "Tinderellas" and "Tinderfellas". Designed by three sisters, all of whom are still actively looking for the one, Coffee Meets Bagel aims to make dating easier, far less creepy and a lot more rewarding.

Pretty much everyone who is single seems to use it, and even a few people who are not. Well due to the success of Tinder there are a lot of developers quickly programming alternatives, and several of them are pretty damn good. The service, which is now LIVE in the UK, promises to place quality in front of quantity –– something no other service, save for Hinge, has set out to do. We take safety & privacy of our members very seriously. It’s also jam packed with features and the mobile app, which features a Tinder-style Quick Match, is excellently put together.

While we're sure the intentions of the developers were noble, the app started off as something of a fast hook-up network, but when the wider public caught wind of how fast, easy, and inobtrusive it is to use for just meeting new people generally, it changed into something that spans the whole range; from quick trists to proper relationships, Tinder has the lot. We have a feature comparing the biggest three dating apps at present -- Tinder vs. Coffee Meets Bagel is the only dating service where there are more female members than males, according to the company bio. Coffee Meets Bagel is A LOT slower paced than Tinder, Bumble and OK Cupid, however, so serial swipers and those that take a more US foreign policy approach (read: carpet bombing) to online dating, be warned, this might not be the application for you. As it stands, this application –– at least in the opinion of KYM’s dating experts –– is one of the best in the business.

Much like Tinder, you flick through your potential matches giving a yes or no based on their looks and if you both say yes, it’ll match you up for a chat.

From there you can decide whether you want to meet up for a date and maybe a little beard stroking.

The only prerequisite is that if you’re a man, you must have a beard.

If you’ve walked past someone in the street you can then flick the heart button and you can start to chat with them.

It's finally a solution to the Sliding Doors problem.
