5. Bumble

face, nose, text, head, brand,

Created by one of the (female) co-founders of Tinder, this app takes the swipe-to-connect concept and adds a woman-friendly twist: women make the first move.

If you see a guy you like, swipe right.

If he also swipes right, you have a "match," and then you have 24 hours to contact him.

There's something wonderful about getting to choose the interactions, and after using this app for a month, I can attest that the men who use it are NOT the same dick pic-sending vultures who proliferate on OKCupid or Tinder.
