In today’s highly technology-driven world, one of the easiest ways to meet a partner is on a dating app. Using an app increases your pool of potential mates and provides a convenient communication platform.

Tinder and Bumble have become incredibly popular due to their addictive swiping format, which allows you to scroll through profiles quickly and efficiently.

However, if you’re looking for something a little more outside the box, there are plenty of more unique dating apps out there that allow you to find exactly what you’re looking for. Here are five of the most creative dating apps currently available for download.

Hater

This quirky dating app is based on the principle that people bond over things they hate. The app starts by asking you to give your opinions on items ranging from President Trump to The Bachelor and everything in between. The app then gives you several potential matches of other people with similar opinions to yours that you can scroll through and like. If someone likes you back, it’s a match and you can start chatting. Since there are thousands of topics featured, developing your profile is actually fun. You can also rule out people with differing opinions on important topics, such as politics, money, or religion, saving you some uncomfortable conversations down the line.

Tastebuds

Bonding over music is another great way to find people you click with, and Tastebuds capitalizes on that by allowing you to find people in your area that are interested in the same music you are. To create your profile, you’ll fill out some information about your favorite songs and artists, and you can even share what you’re listening to on a daily basis. The app will match you with other people who have similar tastes, and you can chat with them and send them songs. In addition to finding potential romantic partners, this app can also help you find concert buddies and friends.

Happn

Happn focuses on connecting you with other people who you cross paths with in your daily life. How many times have you seen someone attractive walking down the street or in a coffee shop, but haven’t had the chance to talk to them? Happn solves this problem by giving you a feed of people who you’ve crossed paths with during the day. You can scroll through and like the ones you’re interested in, and if they like you back, you can start chatting.

Dating apps often have the reputation of being superficial.

Sapio

Dating apps often have the reputation of being superficial, but Sapio is aiming to change that by creating an app that focuses on intelligence and personalities. When creating your profile, you’ll answer questions about your opinions, values, feelings, and experiences, and you can browse through other’s answers to find potential matches.

The questions are sorted into categories, so you can browse based on what’s most important to you in a partner. Once you’ve found someone that catches your eye, you can chat with them to learn more. In addition to helping you find others who want a true intellectual connection, you can also use the questions as icebreakers to get a conversation going, so you’re not at a loss for what to say.

TinDog

If you find yourself searching for dog’s in other people’s Tinder profiles, Tindog (aka Twindog) is the app for you. It works in the same format as Tinder, so you can swipe through photos of other people’s dogs in your area. You enter your dog’s age, breed, and gender to create a profile. Although it’s not specifically marketed as a dating app, you can use your dog as an easy way to get to know potential matches around you that share your passion for furry friends. The app is also a great pick-me-up after a bad day – after all, there’s no faster way to put a smile on your face than by looking at pictures of adorable dogs.

For those struggling to meet an ideal partner in their daily life or on more mainstream dating apps, trying one of these new platforms is a great way to explore a different group of potential matches.
