Best dating apps for iPhone, iPad and Android
Spring is here in full blossom and summer is right around the corner. And you know what this means - love is in the air. Even the toughest of geeks can feel it. So, what would a true nerd do? Hitting the gym and approaching girls directly sound good on paper, but in reality: nope, never, nuh-huh, out of the question. Isn’t there a smarter way to get dates in this modern day and age? Saving at least part of your dignity? 

Ah, of course, dating sites. You’d still need to show a picture of your beloved human self to the world, jot down a couple of thoughts on the meaning of life, express your inner self without any Star Wars jokes and tactfully avoid compromising pictures of your non-existant six pack abs. You get the picture of an absolute nerd we’re trying to paint here, right? Good.

From there on, you’re flowing in your own waters. Unlock phone, go to app store, download app, browse profiles, tap visually appealing creatures and send your hopeful and grammatically perfect “Oh hai baby how u doin.” From there on... well, you have to rely on your charmingly weird humor and hope the pictures you just saw are real. You’re on your own, captain. But first the apps - here they are.

Having done both websites, it doesn't help when 90% of profiles on match.com don't meet your standards and or are fake profiles and eharmony is like finding an arrow fired into a thick forest, good luck finding the "one"

Yeah, fakes are always an issue with most low-profile sites, and unfortunately Match.com to some extent, but I still think it's got a huge database which makes finding dates easier than elsewhere. Gotta make do with what's out there! Which one is your favorite?

Depends, if your in a highly populate area, you might have more luck with eharmony then I did being in a spare town/state. Match is nice so you can see up front for free who your communicating with or want to wereas eharmony you gotta pay to see peeps faces beyond their profile.

Do both and see what turns up better results

PoF has the problem of fake profiles, girls that are unreasonably high expectations/ high maintenance or , want baby/ sugar daddies.

eHarmony and Match are seemingly useless and I have much better luck just hitting up social scenes (easy to do in NYC and San Diego where I split my residence).

Yeah, i'm not the bar scene kinda guy and i live in a much smaller town then you do and im pretty picky when it comes to woman so internet dating helps me immediately eliminate the non desirables, mostly the woman who want kids because I never want any

I'm on OKcupid, don't waste your time, there are like 10,000 dudes to every one chick, they get bombarded and you get lost in the flood. Your odds are MUCH better in an actual bar or club..

I usually just find me a skank with low standards on craigslist to nail late night in the walmart parking lot. Works for me.
