Until Facebook launches its own dating app, you can find below our selection of apps, each corresponding to a particular profile of individuals and uses.

NRJ Chat

NRJ Chat ( has been one of the great revolutions of online dating. The principle was really new at the time. The creators of the site had understood that women were harassed just when they connected to the dating sites. Based on this observation, the principle of NRJ Chat was born.

Men can not talk to women if they do not allow them. The only thing they can do is send them a “charm”, that is, a simple notification that they are interested. If the girl is interested, she can allow the boy to write to him, and if she is even more, she can put it in her virtual basket.

This last point, associated with a candy pink aesthetic, light and uninhibited, put women in the assumed position of people doing their shopping. In a fun and good-natured atmosphere, everyone relaxed and the site quickly became a reference of its kind. The staging naturally put the men “showcased” by making “products”, which had some according to some consequence to lead to more direct and ephemeral meetings.


Tinder ( is probably the most resembling descendant of Adopt a guy. Here too, what the application has done is to unpack the fleeting and even superficial reality of certain encounters on the web. Thus, based on geolocation, the application offers a series of endless pictures, for which your choice is very simple. You like or you go. It’s so simple and fast that Tinder is available on Android Wear, to make its terrible sort at any time.

If two people have appreciated each other, they will both receive the famous “it’s a match! And can get in touch and see their profile in more detail. As Adopt A Dude, Tinder has been able to reduce encounters to something basic for people not seeking great love.

By offering only photos in the first place, the application offered the double advantage of not giving all personal information before there was reciprocal attraction, and that of assuming frontally the highlighting of ‘a purely physical criterion. We like or we do not like, but in any case Tinder has placed himself very clearly on his niche.


Should we present Meetic? The application is for people a little more serious than on Tinder and NRJ  and on a slightly higher age group, the two others being addressed to less than thirty years, although there is everything.

Meetic puts forward the idea of ​​”making beautiful meeting”. The application, moreover, offers very classical services; messaging, advanced search and live chat. The small distinction lies in the Shuffle function, which is a system quite similar to how Tinder works to get in touch with people.


In just a few months, Happn has become an essential meeting application. Cocorico, it is made in France. The principle of Happn is based on geolocation to propose to meet strangers nearby. To put it simply, you’ll have a drink with friends and the app suggests profiles that are nearby.

If a profile attracts you you can put a “Like” and if the person in question “Like” also your profile when it is suggested to you then with a “crush”. You can then start chatting. Here again, there are other subtleties and some in-app purchases to speed up the dating process.


Lovoo is a German application that is also based on geolocation. But on Lovoo, there is a radar, a map, which shows real-time users nearby. As a bonus, hashtags come to spice up the experience.

For example, you can post photos of what interests you, passionate you, have fun, and post them with hashtags. Those who share the same commonalities will fall on your photos and you increase your chances of meetings.

At the time of writing, the application has already attracted more than 10 million users. In-app purchases can also go further in the experience.

Attractive World

Attractive World is the application of the site defining itself for “demanding singles“. To be able to register, the votes of singles already present must be in your favor. It has been criticized for its elitism at Attractive World, and for good reason: according to the criteria appearing on the cards, it could seem that the site aimed not only to make a pure selection of people attractive, but also well placed socio-professionally .

One could argue that this is what people do in reality, to select each other through an attempt to maintain classes. Except that there is a positioning almost announced, and that is squeaky. Be that as it may, Attractive World is one of the must-haves and should be included in this list.
