Don’t feel let down by the World Wide Web as there are many other dating sites and apps that you probably haven’t tried yet.

Here are 5 free dating sites and apps for you to try which will hopefully find you your one and only.

  1. Alikewise

This is the go-to dating site for all of you bookworms out there who love curling up on the couch and reading a good book or two and want the opportunity to discover your fellow bookworm companion. When you sign up and register for Alikewise you are automatically matched with people who share the same list of favourite authors, poets, genres, et cetera as you. This is a great place to share your thoughts, interests, and passion for books and reading and meet that same like-minded person.

  1. FitnessDates

For all those gym junkies and fitness freaks, FitnessDates is the best bet to finding your perfect match. You will be sure to come across a number of runners, athletes, personal trainers, and yoga lovers so go ahead and get cracking.

  1. Tastebuds

Available on the Apple store and through Facebook, Tastebuds is the perfect app for those who have an appreciation for music. It’s designed for you to find people who love the same music genres, artists, or bands as you, and also allows you to discover new music based on your current music interests. Tastebuds is a perfect way to meet and bond with someone who shares the same passion as you.

  1. ALIGN

A recently developed dating app that specifically focuses on the users’ horoscope and “aligns” users by their rising moons, daily constellation, astrological element as well as their zodiac sign. The only downside is that it’s currently only available in Los Angeles, New York, and The Bay; however that will most likely change very soon.
