What is a Dating App?

Dating apps allow users to discover their potential soul mates in the realm of the internet. Users can simply register to the app and create a detailed profile to help dating apps find people who share the same interests as them. Not only this, the apps offer a common ground for people to connect over chat to keep things as secure as possible.
