Although re-downloading the Tinder app is often people’s first move when re-entering the dating scene, there are also so many other great and underappreciated dating apps that are going completely unnoticed by users like you! And, with each app’s specifically targeted user base, one of these newer apps may even be better for you as an individual.
Do you have a beard? Is it important to you? Then maybe Tinder is the wrong approach. Bristlr is aimed at “connecting those with beards to those who want to stroke beards”.
And, if you are a woman who happens to think beards are pretty sexy, then you might as well streamline your potential matches by switching over to a “bearded only” platform.
Bristlr has been facing increasing popularity and has even been featured on Cosmopolitan, CNBC, Elle, and The Huffington Post.
Spex is a very new platform with a similar mission to Bristlr, only with glasses instead of beards! But before you go on thinking that this type of dating app is way too “niche”, according to Spex, “50% of the population wear glasses!”. So it looks like one out of every two people reading this post would fit in quite nicely in the Spex community.
And as a fellow glasses-wearer, I have to say that I think it’s pretty cool that wearing glasses is finally sexy again!
If fitness plays a big role in your daily life, chances are high that you are looking for a partner who feels the same way. Well Sweatt allows you to do just that! Through this app, you can meet up with other gym/fitness/yoga/dance lovers, because according to Sweatt, “…great dates and great relationships start with strong, motivated, confident people.”
I think they’re onto something here.
4. The Grade
Finally, a platform that allows men and women alike to be graded on their online behavior! With this app, users are able to rate each other based on how they act. And when a user’s grade drops to an ‘F’, they are permanently “expelled”!
With a goal of getting rid of the “creeps”, The Grade is a female-empowered platform that keeps online dating classy, safe , and clean.

A very forward-thinking new dating app, Happn reaches out into the real life dating world and finds a unique way to connect it with online interactions. Happn allows you to find and connect with the people that you have already crossed paths with, and when you do cross paths with another member, their profile automatically shows up on your timeline!
If you’re looking to meet someone without the Internet in today’s day and age, it’s not gonna happn…without happn. 😉
Although Wingman is still in beta mode, it’s definitely worth a mention. Flying alone sucks. Especially when the flight is long, and especially when you’re single. Thankfully, Wingman is on the way! With this app, you will be able to maximize your life efficiency by combining your travel time with dating time!
Find someone awesome to sit next to next time. “Future you” will thank you for it.
So, the next time you want to “delete Tinder forever” and “give up on online dating completely”, maybe give one of these apps a try instead. It may just be the breath of fresh air you’ve been hoping for.
