Enter Happn, the app which finds the people you've crossed paths with throughout the day.
Half creepy and half ingenious, the app uses GPS tracking to present you with a list of people you've come into contact with.
The expert: This sounds like every stalker's dream, I'm not sure I would be convinced of its safety features, but it is a good way to make contact with someone who you've been eyeing from afar.
If you're the shy type, this app is the perfect buffer, if not, ditch the app and start conversation in the real world.
A dating app that reduces the chance of harassment? The expert: I really like the idea of this app because it creates a safe environment for women online.
The only downside is that my ex-boyfriend lives nearby so it's like he's literally always on my radar.
The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
While you're usually all about female empowerment, you're not wearing the right shoes to chase him down the street to exchange numbers, or you know, tell him he's The One?
Dejected, you can't help but think Mr Right is now untraceable - there goes your happy ever after.
Because the app is proximity-based, it also make things easier when it comes to setting up the date.
