Has Tinder Become Tiresome? 5 Alternative Dating Apps Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

February has begun, and we know that means love is in the air – or not. With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, some of us are scrambling to find someone to spend the special day with. To help you out with that, we’ve created a list of some the coolest dating apps out there right now.

Love for Sports

Before Valentine’s Day, we have Superbowl LI coming up. So why not share your passion for sports with someone else? Love for Sports is a sports minded dating app that connects you to other people who love the same teams you do. Users can crowdsource local activities like watch parties and tailgates, and meetup at big events. Love for Sports even helps users locate out-of-town tailgates, perfect for all of you heading to Houston to watch the Superbowl.



Here is an app that takes everything we consider normal from dating apps, and flips it completely. Instead of matching people based on things the like or love, Hater matches people up based on what they dislike. The app allows users to swipe in four directions, indicating if they love, like, hate, or dislike a person, activity, or interest. The cherry on top? The app does the heavy lifting when it comes to starting conversations. The app has a list of icebreakers which you can fill in with your own response. Hater is the app to bring comedy and fun back into dating!



Gone are the days of being bombarded by unappealing messages from uninteresting people. Bumble works similar to Tinder, but it’s the ladies who message first. However, there is only 24 hours to make a connection or contact the other person. Otherwise that connection disappears! Even if you are just looking to increase your friend circle, Bumble has a solution for that. The BFF feature is for people who aren’t looking for dates, just someone to hang with. Sounds like we get two in one with this app!



This app tries to take the awkwardness out of meeting new people. Hinge introduces you to people that share mutual friends with you. After using Facebook to login and entering preferences, Hinge finds other users out there who fall in your mutual friends circle. Everyday at noon, the app supplies a fresh list of possible matches. And since you have friends in common, everyone is more likely to be genuinely nice people!


Coffee Meets Bagel

Ditching the swipe method for something that is a bit more personalized, Coffee Meets Bagel favors quality over quantity. The app aims for a measured experience with some quality matches. You can really personalize by adding very specific preferences. Then, the app only shows you “bagels” that meet those preferences. If you’re looking for a dating app that is very tailored to what you want, this is the way to go!
With online dating really taking off, these five niche dating apps are ones you should be using right now!
