Ladies, this one is just for you. Lulu isn’t technically a dating app. Women create profiles of men they’ve dated and give them a numerical rating as well as descriptive hashtags like #OneTrackMind or #AddictedtoMirrors. The men can add their own hashtags as well. Lulu has caused a bit of controversy because it is aimed only at straight women but we have to give it props for being a place where women can exchange advice, commiserate and help prevent at least a few broken hearts and wasted evenings.
Bumble is another one of the best dating sites created for women by Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe (who sued Tinder for sexual harassment last summer). Bumble is similar to its older sibling but women are the deciders here. When a match pops up both parties can either accept or decline, if both accept the lady has 24 hours to make the first move or that connection disappears.
