Who you want to find: An exotic adventurer on their way to hike the Chilean Andes. Who you want to find: A put-together man who wants a drink and a fuck.Who you actually find: A passable stranger who hasn't decided yet, but wants to text a lot anyways.

So do about a billion other people, and they're all on hook-up apps. Here, a quick breakdown of what to expect on these hook-up apps, should you have completely avoided them all thus far. It is: The most notorious hook-up app, especially among the younger folks. The catch: The Mile High Club isn't really a thing.Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). Cons: It pulls in every single woman who happens to be your friend on Facebook, even if they haven't joined Down yet (your cowardly come on will be waiting for them if they ever do), making it rather pointless.Verdict: The more you think about it, the less sense Down makes.Chances are you live or work in the same area, so arranging a date becomes a lot simpler.Cons: If the date goes horribly, there are no assurances you won't bump into her when you're buying milk a few days later. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn't be an issue – your friends are bound to find out.
