Today, Tinder creates 26 million matches a day and has been mimicked and referenced in popular shows, like “Master of None,” and movies like “How to Be Single.” But Tinder isn’t the only awesome dating app out there — plenty of other dating apps making their mark on the space are worth giving a try.

Below are 13 apps that are very much like Tinder and that we’d highly recommend, whether you’re an i Phone or Android user.

We’ve found the nine top free online dating sites that don’t skimp on the experience.

"I want a man with a personality and looks to take my breath away." These are the requirements of the dark-haired, dark-eyed, 37-year-old Asian beauty who has sent me her romantic wish list.

Reading it on my laptop in the aptly named Cafe Affaire in central London, I consider what she really wants: a no-strings-attached sexual relationship.

Many of them are middle-class, many have young children.

And all of them are looking for an opportunity to betray their spouses. But I wanted to find out what sort of woman uses such a site.

I register, and enter the murky world of two-timing technology, taking note of the warning on the site: "Not all affairs have a positive effect on a marriage." What a masterpiece of understatement.

I wonder if anyone has ever read this, seen the wisdom of it and decided not to join. "I'm witty, charming, handsome and modest, and I'm kind to animals," I write, hoping this description will have a fairly broad appeal, and also include a recent photograph.

But in the modern world, in which the internet has become a vehicle for all manner of impropriety, she regards this kind of behaviour as perfectly acceptable.

We have encountered one another via an internet dating service established for the sole purpose of enabling married people to commit adultery.

In order to fit in with the general ethos of the website I have invented a wife.

Our relationship, I note, has suffered because we don't spend enough time together (not surprising really, since she doesn't exist).

After a quick search, I get the measure of the women on the site.
