Forget Tinder, Once Is The Dating App To Have In 2017

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Once.

Think it's time to give Tinder the left swipe? Check out Once, the dating app with a difference. Focusing on quality over quantity, Once uses human matchmakers to give users quality matches every day. Say goodbye to sifting through hundreds of nearby singletons and download Once, where all the looking is done for you.

Working out how to find The One can be a bit overwhelming, especially in London — with so many people, where do you start? Luckily, the guys at Once are here with their app solution. Simply download the free app, set up a profile, and every day at noon you'll be sent a match.

But there's a twist - when you've been matched, you have 24 hours to like each other before the match disappears. You'll then have to wait for noon the following day to get your next tailored match.

So how exactly does it work? It's a clever mix of computers and people power — to start with, a complex algorithm preselects potential matches based on age, sex and geo-localisation. From this shortlist, human matchmakers take over, analysing profile pictures and comparing hobbies, in order to pick out the perfect match.

There's no need to worry about dodgy users, as Once is an app that definitely puts safety first. As well as a two-step verification process, every profile is also human-verified. Anxious about getting matched with someone you know? Once avoids this potential embarrassment, and makes sure you don't get set up with your Facebook friends.  

London is a big and busy city, but there is definitely a match out there for everyone, and now is the time to find them. If your New Year's Resolutions include ditching your single status, check out Once — the people proving that when it comes to dating, less is definitely more.
