While there are a ton of dating apps available out there, there are honestly only a few worth your time.
Most apps just throw random strangers at you without taking into consideration important details, like your interests and hobbies. You are required to type a ton of things on your bio, but you still end up with an app suggesting people you obviously have nothing in common with.
Fortunately, there are some that are actually pretty good. Check out our top choices, and with any luck you’ll be meeting a viable match in no time. (A perfect one may be too much to ask.) While some on this list are generic dating apps, all have very specific parameters that you can tweak so that you meet only people with the same interests and values.
This app was officially launched late August 2018. Apart from the standard bio, it asks its members to include their life goals, dietary preferences, fitness interests, and more. You can’t get any more specific than that! The company behind the app also hosts events like fitness cruises to have its subscribers meet in person.

No, this is not your donut shop on-the-go app. CMB is actually a dating app that goes way beyond swiping right or left. Though it’s not exclusive for fitness junkies, it recently launched its “CMB Experiences” to bring its users together in person. These “experiences” include events like the Run Date Festival in Asia.
You can think of Happn as a modern “missed opportunity” app that uses location and real-time data to allow you to find and connect with people you cross paths with in everyday life.
Happn fills your timeline with your everyday activity, so you can find people with the same schedule as you. Its newest map feature even allows you to zoom in on gyms, parks, or sports events to check out Happners who are also there.
If there was an OG of fitness dating apps, this would be it. So many have tried to play the same game but none have come close.
The app asks users when they like to work out, how many times they work out, and what type of workout they do the most. It then uses this data to match users with the same routine.
OkCupid has added a Topics feature where users answer questions from countless subjects like travel, cooking, and, yes, fitness! The answers to these questions are what the app uses to match people together. The system really works—especially if your answers are extremely specific.
Bumble attracts all types of people, but the app’s newest “badge” feature allows health-minded singles to streamline their choice of matches. It does this by adding an active badge to the profile that other users can see. The badge also indicates the lifestyle preferences of the user and identifies if he or she works out, smokes, or drinks.
