Top 5 Best Dating Apps That You’ve Never Heard Of

The first time I heard about Coffee Meets Bagel was from my roommate who was using it to find a more serious relationship. Coffee Meets Bagel offers a unique experience that focuses on compatibility. To do so, they match you with one other user (bagel) per day. This quality over quantity approach provides the user with a more intimate meeting experience. They market themselves as the only dating app women love, but my male roommate seems to enjoy the intimacy just as much.


Healthvana is not necessarily a dating app, but more of a dating app accessory. Healthvana helps users find highly rated STD and STI screening/testing clinics in their area. So what does this have to do with dating apps? After getting screened, you can get your results sent straight to the app on your phone. This is great, especially when the person you just met on some random dating app wants to know if you’ve been checked and are good to go.


Want to meet people you probably have already met? Happn connects you with the people you have crossed paths with and who are directly around you. The unique feature of this dating app is that it tells you how often, if ever, you and the other person have been in the same place. It’s a good way to start a conversation with that intriguing person you see every morning on the bus.



Are you Down? Down lets you know if the person you matched with is interested in dating or if they just want to get down. It gets rid of those awkward moments of having to ask questions and gets right down to business (pun intended). This app is perfect for the lazy Tinderer or Grindrer who know exactly what they want out of a dating app.


Pure is the Uber of dates. You only match with people who are close by and are willing to go out at that very instant. The app focuses on spontaneity that drives the on-demand services market. So for you more spontaneous, adventurous folk, try Pure and within minutes you can be sitting at a table sipping a latte with the person of your dreams.
