Safe teenage dating
Age limit: none Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Okay, so this isn’t technically a dating app — but it can make “offline” dating a little less awkward, and that’s everything.
Nearify lets you view a list of local events and invite friends who might be interested.
(In same-sex pairings, either person can make the first move.) This cuts down on the number of unsolicited D-pics and eggplant emojis, which is always a good thing.
What's not: If you’re not a fan of making the first move, this probably isn’t the app for you.
But if you’d rather not leave it up to chance, you can scroll through profile photos and tap one to start a chat or leave a comment.What's not: While it's cool to see that your crush at school is also on the app, you may also pass a creepy guy on the street who is a user.Don't worry though, because there are settings you can change to avoid this, like age restriction.The app has also added a bunch of safety features, like cell phone verification to keep fake profiles from cluttering up the site — but creepers can own cell phones too, so you still have to be careful.
What's not: The swipe feature can make it feel pretty superficial, and while it’s supposed to be geared towards making new friends, a lot of people use it as a casual hookup site.Meaning, if you're 1 to 850ft away from a user, you will get access to their profile and vice versa.
