Age limit: none Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Okay, so this isn’t technically a dating app — but it can make “offline” dating a little less awkward, and that’s everything.
Age limit: 18 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Happn combines the experience of meeting someone in real life with using a dating app.
Every time you cross paths with another user of the app (literally) it will show on your timeline.
Online dating definitely has its perks — it makes it way less intimidating to approach someone you’re into, especially if you’re on the shy side.
You can tweak your profile so you never have to worry about flubbing your first impression.
What's not: While it's cool to see that your crush at school is also on the app, you may also pass a creepy guy on the street who is a user.
Don't worry though, because there are settings you can change to avoid this, like age restriction.
What's not: The app has only been around for a few months, so you may not find a ton of locals on there.
Age limit: 12 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Yubo, formerly known as Yellow, feels kind of like a cross between Tinder and Snapchat — you can swipe right on profiles that look interesting and chat via live video.
But there are a few decent options — with stronger safety features and less of a sketchy hookup culture happening — out there for the under-21 crowd.
Of course, that doesn’t mean these apps are 100% safe.
Also, the Android version is missing a few key features — so if you don’t have an i Phone, you may want to skip it for now.
