8 unique dating apps that aren't tinder

forget swiping left or sliding into DMs

A few years ago, the general population seemed to scoff at the idea of online dating. But now, thanks to a bevy of apps and perhaps a general openness to finding love on the good ol' Internet, 40 million Americans have used some form of online dating at one point or another. Even celebrities like Hilary Duff and Leo DiCaprio have jumped on the bandwagon. But however popular Tinder may be, not everyone is looking for a swipe left or right experience. So, with that in mind, we rounded up a list of the best new dating apps. And if you're not looking for the love of your life (or even one for a night), they're also good for finding a concert buddy, setting up group dates, exploring fun, new date ideas, and choosing who you do (or don't) interact with. One of them even lets you search through a "manventory" and add users to your "shopping bag." We'll just leave that idea there. Click through the gallery to see our top picks.
