Verdict: The app that started it all, Grindr has been helping men who like men improve their sex lives since 2009. The USP: Members are vetted, and they also run IRL singles events.

Verdict: Worth a shot, if only to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.

The USP: Based around suggesting dates, rather than banging on about yourself. Cons: A high number of sexually frustrated virgin-trolls means a lot of women find using it a harrowing experience, which understandably makes them cagey when you come along.
