Looking for dating apps free for men seeking for The One? While there are a lot of hookup apps online (nothing wrong with those, too), there are also free dating apps that can really help you find a partner for life. This list will give you a quick overview of each of these apps and how they can help you find your perfect match.
9 Dating Apps Free for Anyone Looking for the Right Match
1. Tastebuds (iOS)
WOW – record number of matches on Tastebuds this week!
— Tastebuds (@Tastebuds) February 12, 2017
Tastebuds is a unique dating app that focuses on matching you with someone who has similar music tastes, making it the perfect app for music lovers (and guaranteeing you’ll have at least one topic to talk about). You can even send your matches songs and make your profile as detailed as possible to include your age, profession, likes, dislikes, and goals.
2. How About We (iOS and Android)
How About We is another niche dating app that connects you with people with the same date activity preferences. The app lets you input your preferred date activity, from cocktail meetups to museum night visits, then matches you with someone with the same interests. Plus, it takes the guesswork out of planning something fun to do!
3. OkCupid (iOS and Android)

OkCupid is one of the most popular dating apps used by thousands of users worldwide. This app employs a seemingly endless string of personality quiz questions to create your profile. But if you wade through them best you can, it uses your answers to connect you with someone with a high match percentage.
4. Plenty of Fish (iOS and Android)

Plenty of Fish has around 70 million members. Similar to Tastebuds, you can also customize your profile and give out as much as detail as you want. It uses a system called Plenty of Fish Chemistry Predictor, which uses certain personality dimensions such as Easygoingness and Self-Confidence, to find matches.
5. Badoo (iOS and Android)
— Badoo (@Badoo) March 23, 2018
Dating app Badoo has a growing number of 370 million users from over 190 different countries. According to the company, it is the largest social discovery network in the world. However, having more members also increases the chances of catfishing. The app counters this by making all users verify their identity by connecting their social media account and sending a selfie.
6. Coffee Meets Bagel (iOS and Android)
— TechTipsLoud (@Techtipsloud) June 23, 2018
Coffee Meets Bagel is a rapidly-growing free dating app that uses digital coffee beans as currency. You earn coffee beans simply by logging in and participating in daily activities. The unique thing about this dating app is how it provides you with feedback on how to increase your rate of success on the app.
7. Clover (iOS and Android)
— Clover Dating App (@TheCloverApp) August 2, 2016
Dating app Clover is like a mixture of all the other dating apps. It encourages users to create detailed profiles so the app can find better matches. Additionally, if you want to move beyond the app, you can participate in their live mixers for a chance to meet your future partner face-to-face.
8. Huggle (iOS and Android)
— Founder Gym (@foundergym) May 4, 2018
Huggle is another niche dating app that matches you with people who also visit the places you frequent. The app also shows the common places you and your match visit. The app believes that “you are where you go” and uses this philosophy to match people with the similar lifestyles.
9. eHarmony (iOS and Android)
