Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.A dating app that reduces the chance of harassment? The expert: I really like the idea of this app because it creates a safe environment for women online.I would always recommend using a dating service where someone is actually screening people for their compatibility.Too much choice can also be confusing for people, they get disinterested because there are so many other options - this is the perfect app if you want to slow things down.If it's good enough for Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lily Allen, Matthew Perry and Hilary Duff, well, it's good enough for you.The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes?

The serial dater: I would never chat a guy up or ask for someone's number, I couldn't deal with the rejection, so this was way out of my comfort zone, but I did love the fact that I had all the power.
The only downside is that my ex-boyfriend lives nearby so it's like he's literally always on my radar.
