Find a date for Valentine’s Day with these apps

Longing for love with Valentine's Day just around the corner?

Chances are you're not alone, and if you're willing to embrace this year's annual day of love, there are several apps that can help you out. Here are a few of our favourites.


Tinder

Tinder is an iPhone app that is designed to connect you with fellow users in your area. The app pulls in photos from the user's Facebook profile and locates Tinder users that have shown interest in you. According to the website, everything is anonymous "until someone you like, likes you back."

"It limits the conversations to people you've actually expressed an interest in," said Sean Rad, Tinder co-founder and CEO, in a Reuters story. "So each of those conversations starts at a very deep level."

MeetMoi

MeetMoi is very similar to Tinder in that it connects you with nearby users, but it specializes in speedy one-on-one introductions. Once you've found someone you'd like to reach out to, MeetMoi gives you no more than an hour to chat.

"An Intro is someone we're ready to introduce you to who is nearby — and if you both accept, you can chat for up to an hour," MeetMoi explains in a Mashable story.

This app doesn't give you a lot of time, but if you hit it off, you can set something up for Valentine's Day and not have to worry about breaking the ice.


HowAboutWe

This free iOS app is truly unique. Instead of filling out profiles and listing your interests, HowAboutWe requires users to submit their date suggestions within the dating network.

You simply download the app, sign up, propose your date suggestion and wait for a response. Or you can browse through the fun date suggestions and click "Ask Out" if something piques your interest.
