There's a smorgasbord of dating apps out there offering an array of different people and dating experiences - everything from true love to no strings sex, and unlike going up to someone in the real world, these dating apps also give us an added layer of protection from a bruised ego (or face).
Specify your height, relationship level and a pic or two, and the app finds potential partners nearby without pinpointing a location.
Once you’ve winked at someone and the feeling is mutual, the lines of communication are well and truly open.

Riccardo G.’s profile on Couch Surfing.com, the website that partners intrepid wanderers with willing hosts, notes that he lives in the “best neighborhood to go out and have drinks,” that he offers a “cozy/clean/nice sofa/couch” and that he’ll even let you bring your “small dog, if you just can’t live without him.” He describes himself as “amazing, outgoing, funny, smart” and says his interests include friends, eating, drinking, the gym and puppies.
