happn is a DATING app with more than 50 million users which allows you to easily find the people you've crossed paths with IN REAL LIFE (yes, those who caught your eye, but you didn't dare to approach 😏)! When you cross paths with someone in real life who has the happn app, their profile appears on your app.2. We promise the other person will not know about it unless they like you too (yes, you might be lucky😉).
If you’re a bit of a snob when it comes to dating and would rather see someone’s CV than a list of their hobbies and interests then "Elitsinglar" (literally “elite singles”) could be for you.
Although long-term relationships have been known to blossom through Tinder, it’s primarily used as a hunting ground for casual hook-ups.
Don’t expect in-depth profiles listing Sven’s likes and dislikes.
For each profile, you can see how many times you've crossed paths, as well as the location and time it happened (no, no need to be a detective)!
Well OK, the optional feature to “Say Hi 👋” is charged, but note however, that a number of “Hi👋 ” notifications are offered to users when signing up 🎁.
