3 Dating Apps To Make Dating More Fun This Valentine's Day #AUKEYthrees

Apps such as Tinder and match.com are now considered routine for millennials to find love. However, endlessly swiping through profile pictures, reading lengthy personal details and getting leering personal messages often can leave you without hope.

So, if you’re single this Valentine’s Day and need some new motivation to find someone to connect with, why not check out 3 of our alternative dating apps to make dating more fun!


Sharing similar interests in music can be a very personal way to connect with someone new. Tastebuds epitomizes that concept, matching people not only with tastes but also with their own musical experiences too (for example if they like going to music festivals).

Pros: Great icebreaker if you are finding yourself not knowing what to talk about.
Cons: Seems better for making friends, or someone to go to gigs with, rather than dating.


Happn is a dating app which finds singles in a 250m radius around your location. It uses GPS tracking to tell you if you’ve ever crossed paths and if so, how many times.

Pros: If you believe in love at first sight but never made a move, this could be the app for you.
Cons: The nature of the app means you may not be matched on similar interests, but just location.


Bumble works on a very similar format to Tinder, swiping profile pictures to the right for a potential match. The twist is when a successful match is made, ladies go first – men can only message on receiving a message and the window to message expires in 24 hours.

Pros: This is a female empowering app and eliminates the odds of women getting inundated with creepy messages.
Cons:There’s less input to show and evaluate personality and interests compared to other apps on the market.

Happy Valentine’s Day from all the team at AUKEY! If you are using tech to find love, let us know and join in the conversation on Twitter and Facebook.
